INDUSTRY 4.0: DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
The chasm is widening between companies that can bend the latest technology to their will and those that merely adapt to it. Which side will you be on?
Disruption isn’t just inevitable -- it’s already happening. In the nearly $4 trillion US industrial sector, the most innovative companies are enjoying growth at nearly 4x the pace of their traditional competitors. What do these leaders of innovation do differently that allows them to win in the era of Industry 4.0? How are CEOs of manufacturing companies creating strategic moats between their competitors?
All innovative industrial leaders share both a clearly defined growth strategy and a plan to leverage a foundation of robust digital capabilities. This opens their businesses to new competitive advantages, like unlocking new markets, reducing operational costs, and developing new revenue streams.
Forward-thinking industrial manufactures streamline everything from operations to production shop efficiency and beyond - undergoing a digital transformation that improves things today, and moves their business forward tomorrow. Manufacturers that embrace modern strategies are certain to gain a leg up on their competitors, while others idle towards antiquity.
Whether it’s simplifying complex back-office processes, eliminating costly overhead, or re-positioning your digital presence to engage modern B2B buyers, the possibilities for your digital transformation are endless.

Building the Future of Healthcare

Our custom healthcare applications typically serve to collect patient data for research, or improve efficiency and quality in the clinical setting.

Smartphone assessment to track the onset of Alzheimer's in at-risk patients.
- Tracks the onset of Alzheimer's in at-risk patients
- Detailed user experience design phase
- Highly custom analytics were required
Gad Marshall and Reisa Sperling are some of the world's leading Alzheimer researchers working out of Harvard Medical School and Brigham & Women's Hospital. They approached us with a novel idea - they wanted to develop a smartphone assessment to track the onset of Alzheimer's in at-risk patients. The assessment would measure smartphone "activities of daily living" over time and measure subtle differences in the user's responses. We loved the idea and worked with them from early scoping discussions, all the way through to the grant process and project funding.
Go to Market with a Bang
Set the ideal tech foundation to position your startup organization for immediate and sustained success.
We all start somewhere, and it's in these critical early stages that we need a nimble and agile team to lend a helping hand. We can relate! Just a decade ago, ADK was in startup mode as a few entrepreneurial friends launched a company to provide website, app and software development assistance. But surpassing our business goals has been both trying and fruitful.
Contact ADK to tap into our 10+ years of first-hand startup experience, as well as our acquired expertise after working with some of the biggest startup names in the country.
1-year after launching, Wasabi raised more than $68 million in Series B funding.
Trade Hounds had more than 50,000 users just 5 months after product launch.
Telehealth startup FireFly Health raised $10.2 million in Series A funding.
We work with early stage startups (pre-series A) to help you get to the next round and beyond - whether that's a consumer facing mobile app, lead generating website, or both. Like you, we're committed to building a solid and scalable foundation on which your business can thrive, expand, and continue meeting your goals.
Once you've proven the product and secured resources, we'll help you scale out of our own services, whether that's hiring an internal team to replace us—leveraging our community, experience, and clients as resources. ADK has experience serving as an incubator - offering prototyping, management training, HR, and office space. If you're lacking capital resources, we can work with you to meet your goals through equity exchange and shareholding agreements.
We provide an experienced & efficient product team (designers, developers, strategists, project managers - the works) to help you define, build and refine your MVP in the time it would take for you to build your own team. But our suite of expertise goes beyond product - we also have in-house marketing, HR, and fundraising teams that can help as needed.
