DERWID supports Peter Rohr on the Bridgestone Cup Handy Races 2018

Peter Rohr and DERWID came on the track at Moto GP France in Le Mans. It was the first race together.

During the last DERWID Summit 2018, we met Peter and we have seen his YAMAHA R1 with its ‘new DERWID dress’. As a matter of fact, the sponsoring project was born some months ago, after have known Peter and his incredible story.

After a big crash with his motorbike, he lost the use of his left arm. However he didn’t lose the passion and the courage to come back on the track and nowadays he is a winning star of the Internation Bridgestone Handy Race, gaining the 3rd place in Le Mans last weekend.

 

DERWID is glad to be part of his dream!

DERWID Summit 2018

This year, DERWID group’s annual meeting was held in Villach (Austria). From May 3rd and 4th all employees from the offices in Italy, Austria and Germany met, together with some guests, for two days of professional updating and training.

During the summit we talked about strategies, roles and products, leaving enough time for internal discussion and communication, thanks to various workshops and team building activities. One of the biggest news of this year has been the presences of 3 external guests who shared with us their experiences of life and work. Most of them will be part of DERWID projects through some sponsoring… stay tuned!

Interview with ABK Group on Tile Italia

Creating environments in real time giving life to images of the highest quality and inserting the desired materials. It is the configurator that DERWID has created by mixing photography and rendering, easy to use for any type of user. On the occasion of the release of the second part, we met the marketing manager of ABK Group, Cristian Nizzoli, who confirmed his trust in Derwid.

Q: What is the photo configurator for the ABK Group?

A: EASY LIVING is a simple and effective tool, able to transmit to our interlocutors, from business partners to professionals and, why not, to the final consumer, all the potentials of ABK, Ariana and Flaviker products. It presents the design opportunities offered by our range in an engaging, fast and interactive way, in real environments.

Q: The project: how did you start? the present? the future?

A: We needed to find a user-friendly tool, without compromising on the graphic rendering, that would help to show the almost infinite coordinated solutions that can be achieved with our products. Inside a showroom it is impossible to summarize all these combinations.

With the first version of EASY LIVING we could already save and share each configuration via e-mail, with the new release we can also print a complete view and detail of the items used, as well as share projects on the main social channels even from smartphones. Let’s not forget that in 2016 over 40% of users in the world accessed the mobile internet. In 2017 this figure grew by 10%.

Derwid has proved to be an attentive partner, punctual and able to always find the right solutions for our needs and this has allowed us to quickly face all the critical issues related to such a complex project.

Q: Why did you choose the DERWID photo configurator?

A: The Derwid proposal seemed to be consistent with our research path and able to reproduce the quality of our product. The Abk Group not only offers new trendy collections but aims to offer real design solutions thanks to a wide choice of materials and finishes always well coordinated with each other. In DERWID we found a reality capable of listening and interpreting our requests at best and also at the service level, our expectations have been widely met.

Q: What can you do with the configurator?

A: There is the possibility of viewing, sharing and saving among the favorites the combination of the products chosen in different types of environment: with our new ranges (large slabs, covering products, thickened formats for exteriors) the ceramic is now ready to different uses. A true emotional experience for the client.

Q: What are the most interesting features from the point of view of the ABK group?

A: Definitely the possibility of obtaining detailed statistical reports on the most used products and formats; precious information that helps us to interpret the macro-trends of the market. It is also important to be able to download images, with a significant saving on photo insertions.

Q: What are the results after almost a year of use?

A: We have an average of 500 accesses a day, with peaks of 1400. Offer this free access tool, usable by connecting to our websites at any time with a simple internet connection and with any device, as well as being an important alternative to concept of traditional catalog, it has certainly been a valid support in the loyalty of our supply chain.

A new office for the Austrian team in Villach

In October there were big changes for the DERWID Austrian team: we moved in a new office.

2017 has been a positive year and we have grown a lot. To highlight this positive trend, but above all due to logistical reasons – we needed more space –, we had to move to a new office.

Now you find us in Purtschellerstraße 63 in Villach, at the slopes of Mt. Dobratsch.

The new office is spacious and welcoming, in a bright and modern building.
There is more space to work in a comfortable way and be creative; and now we have a kitchen and a terrace for more relaxing breaks.

Moving in the new office in Villach

Celebrating the new office

In order to celebrate the new office and to recover from the efforts of moving, we chose an alternative way: a regenerating and invigorating hike on Mt. Dobratsch. On a wonderful sunny autumn day, in less than two hours – both experts and less experts – we reached the Gipfelhaus on the top, where we had lunch together.

Changing our perspective and chatting while hiking in the open air has been positive and motivating also for our work projects.

We are looking forward to seeing you in our new office in Villach!

 

CeBIT 2017: DERWID in partnership with Asseco Solutions

From 20th to 24th March 2017 in Hannover will be held CeBIT, the global event for digital business. This year also DERWID will be present: Horst Exenberger, DERWID’s CEO, will be available for your questions about our solutions for Industry 4.0 at the stand of our partner Asseco Solutions, Stand B26 Hall 5.

Among the top 6 European software companies, more than 32,500 customers and 18 locations worldwide: Asseco Solutions has been delivering for twenty-five years the most advanced ERP solutions in different sectors.

At CeBIT 2017 Asseco Solutions presents its ERP solution APplus for industry 4.0 with a specific application for the automotive.

IoT and big data are now commonly used terms: in the automotive sector, e.g. if we think to self-driving cars, it is fundamental for automotive suppliers to have efficient tools to manage large data quantities, also those coming from connected components, already in use on vehicles. At CeBIT, Asseco Solutions will show how efficiently-networked ERP solutions can be used as a control center encompassing all other systems, that could e.g. directly connect machines to the ERP system, without using a MES solution.

We are looking forward to seeing you at CeBIT 2017!
