Your innovation ideas for our digital future

How important your food for thought can be for all of us is particularly clear this year: the innovation idea for the digital IT inventory of hardware has already led to a concrete customer project. We are currently developing the approach further into a scalable cloud platform for inventorying, monitoring and managing IoT-enabled and non-IoT-enabled devices, rooms and objects. We will be launching our resulting product extension “Assets@Work” on the market this year.

The idea for the HK Medical Device was also put through its paces in various workshops. Alexander’s innovation provided a valuable impetus for the development of various health solutions for the process optimization of administrative work in health economics. At the same time, we were able to identify another promising use case for our ROSI nano.

And that is precisely the aim of the HK.SYSTEMS Innovation Award – to tease out your undisputed know-how! All employees of the HK Group have acquired a very high level of fundamental expertise in their field of activity over many years. This important expertise helps us in its entirety: through individual knowledge transfer, we develop new products or carry out process optimizations. Let’s use this swarm intelligence together and develop innovative products and processes. This is how we strengthen the foundations of our companies and secure our future!

Every colleague can also take part in the current Innovation Award 2022. Simply drop your ideas for a product or process innovation in the digital Innovation Award mailbox – or send them by e-mail to:

Our product management evaluates all suggestions promptly and then checks the implementation together with you. At the end of the year, a cross-departmental committee decides which proposals were feasible and evaluates the respective cost-benefit ratio in parallel. We then use these criteria to determine the winners, who receive an attractive prize for their commitment.

And even more importantly, in 2022, as in the past year, we will be delighted to continue writing success stories – together!
