GFT innovation contest: employees work on new digital ideas


“inspiring IT” is our everyday guiding principle that drives us to create exceptional IT solutions for our clients. In order to stay truly innovative, we decided to challenge the creativity and inspiration of all GFT employees, urging them to get thinking in order to drive our company forward.

Earlier in the summer we launched the group-wide GFT Innovation Contest. For 12 weeks our employees worked on their innovations for new digital ideas in the fields of Mobility, Cloud Computing, Social Media and Rich Internet Applications/ User Experience.

The top three ideas submitted to the contest will be used to create corresponding concepts or prototypes, which will eventually become practice showcases. The selected winners will receive the new iPad and will be involved in the further development of their ideas.

When the Innovation Contest deadline came two weeks ago, on 7 September, we proudly counted 78 submitted ideas and in the coming weeks our in-house jury, consisting of members of the GFT Management team and the Applied Technologies Group, will decide on the three best ideas.

As soon as the winners are announced, we will present the ideas and their innovators in a special post.
