Strong first half year for Avalon

Avalon Innovation’s consultants were in demand during the first half of the year, and this trend appears to be continuing into the second half as well, with strong growth in UX, software, project management, and mechanics, both in terms of assignments and projects. A contributing reason for the growth of turnkey projects, which currently account for around 20% of our sales, is the increased confidence our clients have in our ability to drive their digital transformation together with them.

Creating completely new business models and revenue streams thanks to IoT and digitalisation
“IoT and digitalisation are clear trends almost everywhere, for almost everything. As we know, IoT blurs the boundaries between systems and products, where smart connected devices pave the way for completely new business models and revenue streams. Avalon helps its clients to make a decisive business analysis as part of clear recommendations in order to provide a concrete basis for investment for increasing revenue linked to IoT. From this theory, we then share the responsibility with the client for turning the potential into reality,” says Emil Hillung, Business Manager at Avalon Innovation.

Strongest ever customer feedback
Just before the holidays, we received the feedback from our major annual customer survey, with 98% stating that they would work with Avalon Innovation on future assignments and projects. “This is so good, you can hardly believe it,” says Helene Högberg, CEO of Avalon Innovation. “We provide our customers with huge value, so this is the greatest acknowledgement of what we do. It means that our business developers have paired our customers’ needs and our expertise perfectly, while our consultants have performed at their very best.”

Lots of applications to work with Avalon Innovation
Our consulting team has grown by a tenth since the start of the year. When hiring new stars at Avalon, in addition to technical expertise, we always look at the candidates’ values to understand how they might enrich our culture with something new and exciting! For us, diversity goes without saying. We know from experience that the strongest teams are multi-generational, with a mix of backgrounds, genders, and experiences.

“I’m so proud of the whole team at Avalon Innovation. For us, innovation, knowledge, and humility are crucial and permeate everything we do and everything we are. We’re nothing without our corporate culture or consultants. Likewise, our managers are vital in developing our business by finding and establishing long-term partnerships with the customers who want to work with us, as well as through their ability to take their teams to the next level,” says Johanna Bergquist, Head of People & Culture at Avalon Innovation.
