State Secretary Thomas Wünsch presents GRW grant in Kabelsketal

The state of Saxony-Anhalt is supporting our investment in expanding our site to the tune of several million euros. The funding comes from the Joint Task for the Improvement of Regional Economic Structures (GRW). State Secretary Thomas Wünsch presented  the grant to managing director Mathias Dögel.

The team at Dögel GmbH was full of enthusiasm about the future and confidence in the company’s ability to succeed on the day when Thomas Wünsch, in his role of State Secretary at the Ministry for the Economy, Science and Digitalization of the state of Saxony-Anhalt, presented the grant that will help fund our investment project to managing director Mathias Dögel. We believe this is a positive sign for medium-sized businesses in central Germany. The Ministry for the Economy, Science and Digitalization is providing funding in the form of a grant to support our investment in the construction of new office buildings and the purchase of new technology. We are highly honored to have received recognition for our services to the central German economy, which consist of digital transformation projects for SMEs that help safeguard their innovative ability and progressive approach.

The aim of investing in expanding our site

We are continuing to grow, with the intention of helping to lay the foundations for the future of the central German economy. If we can employ more people to work on our digitalization projects for medium-sized enterprises, this will enable more customers to exploit the possibilities of digitalization for their businesses. As a digitalization service provider for SMEs, we are very familiar with the challenges facing medium-sized companies. The markets are currently changing faster than ever before. Traditional business models, organizational structures and product management processes are increasingly being put under pressure by more efficient and innovative digital-based competitors such as well-funded start-ups. Companies are also facing internal upheavals. The next generation of young professionals is already in the starting blocks and they have very clear ideas of what they want from their working environment. Millennials expect much more from their employers, particularly with regard to the internal organization of companies and digital tools for communication and HR processes. This dual competition is presenting problems in particular for medium-sized companies in central Germany and often they lack the experience to overcome these challenges. This makes it all the more important for the competitiveness of SMEs in relation to competitor organizations and employers for them to have a reliable partner by their side who understands the wide-ranging opportunities presented by the digital business transformation and has the human resources to implement projects.

Discussions on the future of the state of Saxony-Anhalt and the role of digitalization in the economy

“What Dögel GmbH is doing for medium-sized businesses in central Germany is genuinely unique!” Both the State Secretary for the Economy and Dögel, as a driver of the digital economy, agree about the special position of technology companies. Only competent, reliable businesses with a practical knowledge of what medium-sized enterprises need to increase their competitiveness (by means of improved production processes, new digital earning models and intelligent additions to existing products) will lay the foundations for the future competitiveness of the state of Saxony-Anhalt. Individual software development, community building and Internet of Things solutions are not only the core competencies of the company, but also, as the discussions about future projects for the digital transformation of regional enterprises show, services that will enable the central German economy to make significant progress.
