    Future Lab

    Explore new business opportunities and create validated concepts

    Anticipate future customer needs

    We live in a world of constantly changing competition and rapidly evolving markets. To stay competitive it’s crucial to identify new business opportunities and create new services that meet the expectations and needs of your customer base.

    Invest in the right ideas for the future

    Coming up with new ideas is easy. The challenge is to come up with ideas that match the future market and create continuous value for the company.

    Early feedback to save time and money

    Early validation of ideas and feedback from potential customers is key to making the right decisions. Ensuring your idea is viable and develops in the right direction means you will avoid wasting resources on ventures that are bound to fail.

    5G mobile technologies case

    5G technology offers great incentives for Communication Service Providers (CSPs) and Enterprises to collaborate on new opportunities. The biggest challenges in monetizing 5G technology is figuring out which use cases are worth pursuing and finding the right innovation partners. 

    With Eficode Future Lab we brought players in the 5G and CSP industries together to map the most interesting use cases. They innovated, co-created, and validated their ideas to support investment decisions where risks have already been mitigated. This collaboration between two different industries combines valuable knowledge to produce fresh ideas that would never emerge in isolation. 

    Concrete outcomes of Future Lab:

    • a prioritized list of use cases and service ideas that can be developed further 
    • verification of ideas and early feedback from potential customers
