The Proof-of-Concept

for sustainable success

The Proof of Concept (PoC) is a feasibility check using your actual data. It enables informed long-term project decisions. During the POC, we'll identify cost-saving opportunities based on your data to help determine a strong business case.

The Proof of Concept at ivoflow

Software fees are an investment and so is the introduction: It requires a lot of resources and, in the best case, professional change management. In order to provide our customers with the best possible support before they actually decide on the software, ivoflow offers a proof of concept (PoC). It gives you the opportunity to test our software with your real data in a customer-specific demo environment in order to get to know the application and familiarize stakeholders with the system. For our customers, the PoC is completed in a very short time and the results are fully visible in just 4 weeks. At article number level, we check the potential for your spend based on various negotiation levers (exchange rates/dual sourcing/benchmark/material cost) as part of an evaluation and aggregate this to product groups and suppliers. This gives you an overview of your savings potential across various product groups and allows you to compare this with the investment costs.

Good to know: The return on investment for ivoflow projects is 1:30.
