Software solutions for Startups

A scalable solution, ideal for both your present and your future

Every startup needs to establish a solid, digital foundation for its product development. At first, a cheap and straightforward design tool might be the best solution. But then, when you start to grow, you are forced to change the system completely. Cadlog and Siemens offer you a scalable solution ideal for your needs as a startup – in terms of cost and ease of use – and that grows gradually with your business. This solution is grounded in the Siemens' Digital Twin-based Ecosystem of technologies for the digital enterprise, made accessible for companies of any size, including new ones.

New challenges for today’s startups

Startups face many new challenges today. A study - which you can download at the end of this page - shows that the most prominent trends that force startups to change and adapt are:

  • the increasing customer demand for smart and connected products,
  • eco-friendly regulations,
  • supply chain disruptions,
  • globalization,
  • the emergence of new business models.

To maximize their chances of success, startup leaders must also consider how to effectively tackle internal obstacles that affect the growth of their organizations. These include: managing larger teams with increased organizational complexity, fostering coordination across different engineering domains, and being productive while working remotely.

Recent surveys show that startups face common challenges when it is time to move from business plan to reality:

%
Limited resources – trying to find a balance between what we need and what we can afford
%
Learning skills outside my domain expertise – sales, marketing, finance, etc.
%
Starting from scratch – figuring out what I need for the business and where to get it
%
Managing work/life balance and the time needed to get a startup off the ground

A Digital Twin for startup projects

With today's complex scenarios affecting the product development process of startups, maintaining a comprehensive Digital Twin can help many companies build a solid digital foundation for the future.

The Digital Twin concept combines the real and digital worlds, blurring the boundaries between engineering and process domains.  Startups and small businesses that embrace this concept can reduce time-to-market and work more efficiently. With a full Digital Twin, startups are able to reduce overhead with fewer prototypes, less testing, and less waste during production.
