The Xpand Labs Business Unit was born in 2011. An initiative which stems from Xpand IT’s search for competitive advantage and organic growth through Innovation – both internal and external to the company.
At the Xpand Labs we apply the best practices around Open Innovation and Co-Creation in order to develop groundbreaking developments involving our partners and our clients. Collaboration is the keyword, and we detached this business unit from the IT - at the Xpand Labs we tackle challenges ranging from technology and process improvement to marketing challenges and management paradigm shifts.
The Xpand Labs integrates all of the Research & Development (R&D) and the major part of New Product Development within Xpand IT, supplying other Business Units with fresh know-how and tools and our Clients with innovative products and scalable business solutions.
We thrive on making Innovation happen, so creating and enterprise-wide culture of Innovation falls within our scope of work. We address this issue from an environmental and organizational perspective: we activate Xpand IT’s workforce by providing them with the right tools and frameworks to approach state-of-art challenges and by continuously training and engaging them in all Innovation related issues.
Our application of best innovation process practices, hard work, ingenuity and frontline thinking are to be recognized with the Portuguese Norm for Innovation Management (NP4457:2007) certification shortly (Q3, 2001).
Exploit the markets, embrace the change, empower the evolution!
"Because every idea counts!"
"It's better to have one idea, than no idea at all!"
Xpand Labs working scope will be based mainly on researching and developing innovative solutions in the software and business processes areas, mainly focusing on productizing and offering scalable business solutions.
