Ratingen, July 24, 2019 – During a ceremony held on June 27th in Berlin, SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa won the 2019 Digital Leader Award in the "strategy" category for its digitisation programme. The German subsidiary of SPIE, the independent European leader in multi-technical services in the fields of energy and communication, has been selected among 111 other companies by a judging panel of digitisation experts from the business, scientific and media sectors. Further categories included “Startup”, “Project”, “Culture” and “Society”.

Digitisation strategy

The SPIE digitisation strategy is structured around three pillars: People, to develop a digital culture involving all employees, Markets, to match with changing expectations of customers, and Processes & Performance to include digitisation in the company processes.

"We are delighted to receive this award because we strongly believe that digital technologies are the key to future success - both for our customers and for our company," said Clarissa Hack, Head of Digital Transformation at SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa. “That’s why we’re aiming to be a leading multi-technical services provider with digital solutions in our key markets. The jury of the Digital Leader Awards confirmed that we are on the right track with our digitisation strategy". Back in 2017, SPIE was awarded the first place in the Digital Leader Awards for its digital field service management.

An established digital leader

The SPIE's mission and strategic goal is to be a strong partner for customers and the best service provider both in meeting customer requirements and in terms of service quality and innovation. SPIE endeavours to be an attractive employer for its employees, providing them with a modern workplace and digital technologies. Each organisational unit is included in this process. Digital transformation was included in the annual action plan by our executives. "With digitalisation, we are improving customer experience, increasing our employees’ productivity and making our services more efficient," says Clarissa Hack.

"After our victory at the DLA 2017, the second place at the DLA 2019 is yet another recognition of our efforts to successfully exploit the opportunities and challenges of digital transformation to strengthen our competitive position. This award is based on a true team effort, involving everyone who develops and promotes new ideas and participates in the knowledge multiplier network, use case development workshops and the implementation of the diverse digitisation solutions. I am grateful to all of you”, said Dr. Egmont Foth, CIO / CTO of SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa.
