We have guided companies through this very delicate and sometimes difficult time at many ocassions. It is important to protect the value of the company and understand the needs of all involved parties. As the situation is very often emotional and can have familiy aspect a neutral person can make the difference.

Generation Change

Project- &

Program Management

Based on our long time experience we can offer a wide range of services in this area. This can be leading individual projects, the structuring of strategic programmes, the training of project managers and project team members up to the creation and implementation of a PMO. We are often consulted to bring projects back on track or to govern very complex programmes with high number of stakeholders.

We offer audits in various areas; processes, project structures, organization, risk,…
We regularly create "non financial" rankings of companies as the financial numbers do not represent the full picture of company value. Customer base, supply chain risks, people, assets and processses need to be part of the equation.
We can prepare your company for certifications, audits and internal development - ISO 9001, 14001, 45001, 17020 and 17024.

Audits / M&A due dilligence

External and internal reasons can leave a company in a difficult situation and require a fundamental restructuring. Based on a 360° analysis our experienced experts are able to create a plan to turn the ship around. We are there to help you in the execution of the plan.

Restructuring

We are able by using different approaches to create with you a formal company strategy. The baseline for running a successfull company is its strategy. After the creation of your company strategy it is important to identify and streamline all initiatives not to waste scarce resources.

Digital Solutions

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

Production

Planning

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.

ERP

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.

Accounting

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.

CRM

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. 

Document 

Management

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.

Office Software

 

Team

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.

Our Story

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.
