10 years of close collaboration
In 10 years of cooperation with BAYOOTEC, in addition to EASY, many other digital solutions have been realized around sales and around increasing product interest. FST has always attached importance to features of cooperation such as stability in the form of low team fluctuation, an understanding of the scope of solutions and a sense of responsibility.
But any close collaboration has obstacles that must be dealt with. “A big challenge was initially to work out the specifics of our business, also to get a common understanding of it,” Dominik Bihn recalls. “Of course, softwar engineers can write requirements and work on them, but it’s only when they understand what the organization is actually doing that they’ll get there faster and with better quality.”
This transfer of knowledge meant
planning skills in project management
Freudenberg Sealing Technologies wanted a stable team right from the start. Over the years, domain expertise has been built up in this area, which is one of the reasons for the strong cooperation between BAYOOTEC and FST. Dominik Bihn is sure: “We couldn’t hand over the solution 1:1 and would continue to develop with the same quality.”
Whenever they encountered problems in their collaboration, they were able to address them openly. As a result, solutions were found that not only helped in the short term, but also eliminated causes. “The impetus that came from the BAYOOTEC team helped us move forward,” says Dominik Bihn. Critical analysis and asking questions have always been an enrichment.
And also Katrin Wilhelmi, Product Owner at BAYOOTEC appreciates this: “The really nice thing about it is that it allows us to find out together how we can make the processes on both sides even more efficient. That is an outstanding feature.” The successful partnership between FST and BAYOOTEC thus forms a foundation for the future that will carry many more exciting projects and solutions.
