Innovation Scout

In our innovation scouts you and your team will explore innovation in- and outside your business and learn about disruptive forces by field visits to the innovative frontrunners. You will learn what new technologies are driving growth and how to translate this new technology into opportunities by exploring best practices.

It is difficult to stay innovative. We gladly open our network and organize an office safari with innovation frontrunners to discover their principles and understand how they can be applied to your own market or organization. Truly grasping what these technologies can do for you will help you create the best new propositions and achieve your highest ambitions.

During the Innovation Scout you will be inspired, given practical examples that you can actually experience on the spot, shown best practices and be made aware of lessons learned by fellow professionals and entrepreneurs that are on the cutting edge of their market. 

As such Sound takes you on an innovation roadtrip to companies that are at the forefront of technological development and are disruptive in their market. We’ll conclude with a concrete roadmap that helps you with the next steps you need to make to move to a digital fit tomorrow.

The Sound Innovation Scout ensures that you;

  • Develop insights
  • Collect best practices
  • Explore directions and opportunities
  • Inspire your team to get started
  • Learn from the experience of thought leaders
KPN is a Dutch provider of telecom and IT services and provides consumers landlines, mobile connections, internet, and TV. They also provide complete telecom- and IT services for the business market. As the telecom market stabilized in the Netherlands years ago, IT services are important to KPN for growth. The relatively new proposition ‘Workplace’ is one of those services where IT and Cloud services are combined and has the potential to help KPN grow their business.
In 2020 Citius Fiber, a new player on the glass fiber player, launched. The brand stands for reliable and affordable access to internet, TV and (landline) telephony. Together with BAM Infra Telecom, Citius Fiber started developing a glass fiber network in Prinsenbeek in 2020, with the goal to give 5.000 households access to Gigabit internet. Citius Fiber and BAM Infra Telecom were responsible for the (technical) preparation, building permits, financing, and the development and maintenance of the network.
PostNL is one of the largest postal companies operating in the Benelux; their core business is the efficient delivery of post. Like any other postal company, PostNL is dealing with a decline of the traditional postal business and a steep growth of the parcel business. The impact of new technologies and digitization is enormous. Together with PostNL Sound developed a customized workshop to increase awareness of the impact of digital among employees of PostNL.
The retail market is an always changing, fast moving market, requiring its’ players to be adaptable and future-proof. Focusplaza is a food and DYI-retail member organisation. They select the most insightful developments and trends and organise inspiring events, informative workshops and study-trips abroad for their members.
Where IT cooperation used to be found in shared IT environments, Sound sees an increasing need to unbundle these shared IT environments (including shared Microsoft tenants and workplace equipment), between municipalities and other agencies. Security, information security and the need for greater flexibility are considerations here.
VRTogether aimed at radically improving the digitally augmented social experience by innovating how media formats are used
