Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | innovation | Smart factory | "When you speak, you only repeat what you already know. "If you listen, you may learn something new." This wisdom comes from none other than the Dalai Lama - and he's right! Nowadays, active listening is not only a sought-after soft skill, but also the basis for good cooperation. For this reason, our colleagues in materials trading sit down together with their customers to develop digital solutions - and talk about wishes and requirements for Apps & IoT solutions.

Company | innovation | For the future of thyssenkrupp, our colleagues around the world are working to make our company more flexible, efficient, and powerful. Our #newtk strategy focuses on this performance idea. For example, in the implementation and observance of tax regulations within a major group like thyssenkrupp. The value added tax regulations alone are so extensive that from now on digital "tax advisors" will help us fight our way through the tangle of regulations and tax numbers. Switching to digital tools brings greater accuracy to the auditing process and gives our employees more time for planning and strategy tasks instead of having to spend hours on end checking invoices.
