We’re super excited to announce that the team over at Digital Innovators have agreed to help carry out vital research for Vanti’s Kahu, a suite of smart technology products designed to support a flexible modern workplace.
First, a bit of context
Over the past few months people within Vanti have been working on market research for Kahu, a collection of smart technology products we’re developing to help our clients create a flexible, productive, and efficient workplace.
Market research is an enormous and extremely important task, especially when trying to make it exhaustive enough to cover all bases, and unfortunately (or fortunately we should say) with project and client work heating up we quickly realised we didn’t have the capacity to complete this task to the standard it demands.
This is where the team at Digital Innovators have pitched in, and have agreed to help out!
Who are Digital Innovators and what do they do?
Digital Innovators, based in Solihull, work to help young people by increasing skills, confidence, and experience as well as supporting employers to meet current and future business requirements.
By partnering with Solihull College & University Centre, West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA), Solihull Chamber of Commerce, The Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP, The Skills Builder Partnership, and Career-Fit, Digital Innovators are able to deliver training and skills that employers need. For more information on the nature of the individual partnerships, head to the Digital Innovators website.
Part of their work sees their students go on to work on a real-life business problem with an employer, providing vital workplace experience that really helps to make them stand out when starting their careers.
What are they going to be doing for Vanti?
The students at Digital Innovators are going to take on a market research project.
This eight-week project will see them start by throwing the net far and wide to capture as much information as possible, before feeding back and working collaboratively with us to establish where to focus their efforts. In the final weeks of the project, research concludes and the students will write their findings into a report, as well as deliver a presentation.
During this time, the team at Digital Innovators and those involved from Vanti will encourage the students to approach the task with as much creativity as possible so they can get stuck in and develop lots of new skills.
How will this impact both Vanti and the Digital Innovators students?
The students’ final report will be incredibly important for Vanti. As we start rolling Kahu out to more and more clients, having in-depth research will be vital when pitching and selling, deciding price points, as well as deciding areas to develop into.
For the students, this is an amazing opportunity to influence the development of a product that will be used in cutting-edge smart buildings in major cities.
We’re super excited about this new partnership, for more information on Digital Innovators head to their website.
