Zühlke – Empowering Ideas



The rapid pace of digitalisation is a major challenge for the telecoms industry. In the past, telecoms companies have been drivers of innovation but as their existing revenue and business models are disrupted, their ability to adapt is being challenged.

Many of their conventional products are simply no longer in demand. Margins are sinking, while new competitors emerging and thriving. With costs rising in proportion to the size and complexity of their systems, telecoms companies face a stark choice: Reinvent today or go under tomorrow. 

Get in touch with us

Reinvention means getting to know your customers better, their wishes and needs. Then finding innovative products to meet those needs – and offering the products to customers through the right channels. It means agile and dynamic value chains oriented towards a state-of-the-art end-user experience. This is the only way to guarantee success in the immediate future, and beyond. 

In this new race for digital ascendency, Zühlke helps you back winning technology with a proven track record in telecommunications. From the initial idea through to implementation and operation, we’re at your side – making sure your change stays the course.

Know your Client

In such a customer-centric business as telecommunications, in-depth knowledge of the user is key. Every single touch point has to be excellent, every single process has to be designed from the customer’s point of view. Services should revolve around the customer journey – no matter if they’re B2C or B2B.  

At Zühlke, we know exactly how to do that. We use existing and new data sources – including AI and Machine Learning – to analyse the current customer journey, design an ideal version of it and bring it into line with your business processes. This delivers new customer insights and a new database for products, services and business models that generate new revenues.  

All this is achieved by interdisciplinary teams we put together at Zühlke, which also integrate your staff. Together, with your know-how and our technological expertise, we ensure that new products can be tested, prototyped and implemented more quickly – satisfying innovation-hungry customers and their need for speed.

Regain Agility and Optimise your IT Budget

Telecom companies operate very complex IT estates, which may be legacy systems and costly to use. This makes developing new products time-consuming and complicated. But your customers are impatient. They want innovations – and fast.

We can help get your IT back on track. We identify any weaknesses in your system and help you make the right IT investments, laying the foundation for a sustainable business model by modernising your applications. This makes your company much more agile, enhancing your ability to take advantage of new business opportunities – and stand out against your competitors.
