“The booklet is an excellent guide providing practical help for leaders of companies as well as for project managers"
Volker Neuber - Managing Director
(Ettlinger Kunststoffmaschinen - Germany)
For the implementation of digital transformations the appropriate tools are needed. Over the decades, we have had to deal with a large variety of different software. Therefore we are able to recommend qualified solutions to your challenges and accompany you during the implementation as independent project managers. We only recommend software that is well-known to us and from trustworthy providers.
The leading production planning software from Japan with over 60% market share is able to holistically map all processes and orders of your company, including external processes and supply chains. Asprova also includes a separate module for planning complex logistics. www.asprova.eu
There is not ONE enterprise resource planning system for every application. Depending on your needs, we can create simple specifications to find the right solution. We rely mainly on suppliers from the greater region - direct contact is very important to us.
Structured business management is only possible with the correct and trustworthy figures, which allow you to create relevant reports and easily allow analytical captures. We work with locally based software vendors that we have known for several years and whose
owners we know personally.
No commercial enterprise can survive without orders. Therefore a structured sales management approach is important. Qualifying inquiries, processing them promptly, managing offers properly and making a professional "follow up" is much more efficient with a suitable digital tool. In addition, cloud solutions today can give sales representatives a lot of information to help them sell more efficiently - but also demand a lot of information in this way and thus better manage the sales team.
Many companies already have a variety of digital solutions. However, there is often the problem that it is difficult to manage information in a structured way or to make relevant information easily available. By using intelligent information management systems IMS, multiple entries or storage of the same information in several places can be avoided. Furthermore, such a system can communicate with already existing systems.
Every company needs adequate office software. In many cases the possibilities of the standard packages, e.g. MS office, are not optimally used because different elements are simply not known and possibly the wrong informatic setup was chosen. With our experience in working with Office 365 and the tools it provides, such as OneDrive, Notes or Teams, we can help you to work more efficiently with simple tools.
Our team consists of people who are all experts in their respective fields. We know each other well, enjoy working together and share the same values. The basis of our cooperation is mutual trust and respect, and that we always want to lead our customers to sustainable success. TrAxxion's core team has known each other for over 20 years and has therefore had the opportunity to gain a lot of experience together. In addition, TrAxxion has a team of more than 15 other experts who are deployed on a targeted basis. TrAxxion does not do "boddy shopping" but sees itself as a family business of consulting. We always assign the best expert to your problem and make sure among ourselves that this remains so in the
course of our cooperation.

The actual idea to found TrAxxion was born when Mark and Sven led a strategic project in 2004 for NOKIA, the then mobile phone world market leader. Both quickly realized how much can be achieved through pragmatic approaches, a clear strategy and efficient project management. From this idea, they defined our values and the "non nonsense" approach that TrAxxion still represents today.
In 2007 TrAxxion started its activities with first missions in the field of project management. After some very interesting restructuring assignments, we published in 2013 the book "Zero Vector Mode Challenge" summarizing our pragmatic "no-nonsense" approach. Through the innovation price we won with our customer Luxforge on "Lean Management applied to an SME" and the accreditation as Fit4Innovation partner in 2015 the development of our services continued. The involvement in some major Industry 4.0 projects, the participation in the Fit4Digital programm and the partnerhsip with Asprova 2018 complemented our services with a strong digital dimension. We are also proud to have very good relationships with important institutions in the greater region (Luxinnovation, Ost Belgien Invest, House of Training, ... to name only a few), as this allows us to voice the needs of our customers.
We are lookig forward to developping TrAxxion further...much more is yet to come.
