Husqvarna Group is a world-leading producer of outdoor power products including chainsaws, trimmers, robotic lawn mowers and garden tractors. Starting in 2013, Husqvarna has paid great attention to the emerging area of Internet-of-Things and connected solutions. When entering the area with own products and solutions, Husqvarna identified the need for an experienced partner in product and service strategy development.
To ensure a successful strategic roadmap Husqvarna selected Knowit as its partner. Starting with cross-segment workshops in early 2014, Knowit's consultants from the Advisory Services department have been supporting Husqvarna Group and its divisions in strategic roadmap development for connected solutions and service offerings. Knowit played an important role in the early initiation of Husqvarna's Connectivity Hub, which is responsible for coordinating Husqvarna's strategic work. Knowit also supported in setting up the Digital Services and Solutions department, which is responsible for creating and maintaining the IT systems.
