And that’s where the colleagues at Digital came into play?
Nizar Manzli: Yes, exactly. We thought about how we could make replacement parts management more effective. We talked to a lot of our colleagues and to experts from all of our business areas, and we quickly saw that almost all companies face these same challenges. And so it seemed natural to turn this into a joint project.
Which then became Obsoletely. What does the term mean, and what does it involve?
Nizar Manzli: “Obsoletely” comes from the word “obsolete,” meaning out of date. It’s a kind of Wikipedia for replacement parts — a portal where you can find out everything you want to know about spare parts. It allows everyone — our customers, our suppliers and us ourselves — to find everything we need through this one interface.
