Practical & Smart solutions

The market is demanding and the competition killing ... Yet we want to keep competing. It turns out that investing in innovation is the only and real way to fight the battle. However, this is easier said than done. Especially if you do not have all the competencies as a smaller company.

IM-Aces has a proven success formula that contributes to the development and success of high-tech innovations, products and production systems. The strength of this success formula lies in the maximum use of ready knowledge and experience. IM-Aces has skilled and experienced experts who have been working in their field for many years and excel in their profession. 'Experience is the best teacher' in other words when you have experienced something yourself, you learn the most of it. This brings IM-Aces with real solutions, for the most diverse needs, challenges and issues, at a best, affordable price.

Interim management & Coaching

Sometimes you need acute help as a company. Your customers do not wait and want to have delivered their service or product preferably yesterday. You want to grow but you are struggling with quality and efficiency problems. Or you are working on a development or innovation and the last ends ... remain the last ends. For many companies recognizable situations, although they don’t lack knowledge. Help from outside would be welcome, especially from someone who has enough experience to put the finger in the right place and to get started with solving the problem.

IM-Aces has such experienced professionals. Experienced professionals who work pragmatically and decisively to improve an organization and its processes structurally in as short a time as possible.

We are active in all kinds of areas and have already proven ourselves: R&D, Production, Purchasing, HR and Finance. But we also deliver great added value in the role of project coach, change manager or organization expert.

Smart technology & Engineering partner

By making smart and optimal use of local and international knowledge we create capacity. We also make engineering affordable. This allows you to continue to innovate, develop products, engineer value & cost, make your production more efficient or simply realize your ideas and vision.

It has already proven that it pays to outsource work in low-wage countries. Currently not only because of the costs, but also because of the acute labor shortage. However, it has also often proved that things go wrong. The reason for this is that they do not understand each other or that they work with a wrong and unreliable party. This results in annoyance, costs and big dissapointments.

IM-Aces offers a smart way of outsourcing that is called 'on-site off shoring'. In a total concept, we ensure that there is always a technical expert on-site. Someone who takes over the responsibility of you and transfers all information in the right way, so that no technical, linguistic or cultural misunderstandings arise. This gives you the benefits, but not the burden.

We work in engineering teams, each with an experienced and multidisciplinary Engineering Account Manager. This Engineering Account Manager is located in the Netherlands and the engineers are located in India. Here we do business with a party that has proven itself for almost 30 years in the United States, for example for the construction of aircraft parts. This is to indicate at what level they are competent and in which field they have the trust of the customer. In contrast to other parties, they reside in the North of India, in the vicinity of the Himalayas, where not only the highest mountains in the world are located, but also very fertile agricultural areas. What we experience is a first class service level, immense involvement and a high degree of reliability. A rare combination that is hard to find in India.

Advantages of such an engineering team:

  • Always one contact point
  • A multidisciplinary team at your disposal working in a customer-oriented way
  • Broad access to knowledge and technology
  • Maximum flexibility: you can quickly scale up or down
  • Direct data exchange with the team for optimal interaction
  • Schedule at Dutch working hours (time difference is only 3.5 to 4.5 hours)

In the end:

  • Low investment costs
  • Lower fixed costs
  • Faster time-to-market
  • Never a shortage of technical personnel
  • Less HR troubles
  • No issues that remain
  • A plug & play concept: easy to phase in
  • A saving of at least 30% - 40%

Transform to more added value and more margin

One of our customers wants to transform into a composite product with a higher added value. The reason for this is that it leads to better positioning, multiple assignments and more margin. They realize that this is not easy, because it requires an investment in changing the organization, adapting systems and responding to higher complexities in terms of quality and engineering. As a company you want to prevent temporary, reactive and often chaotic solutions. These solutions are very expensive and are also at the expense of delivery and quality.

From specific knowledge to multidisciplinary knowledge

More and more products are being equipped with sensors, smart electronics or a multitude of different parts or materials. Meanwhile, we have contributed to design, development, prototyping, testing and industrialization at various clients with our expertise. With our multidisciplinary approach and specific knowledge, we have taken on complex challenges and have successfully completed them. Our experience has also enabled us to come up with quick and affordable solutions, both in the process of finding a solution as the solution itself.

From vision to reality

One of our customers is transforming from a mechanical to a somewhat more chemical production environment. In this case, the expertise in chemistry is almost not present and the organization in this area is rather immature. By employing an experienced manager with a master degree in chemistry, we have coached the company from a knowledge and experience perspective. By taking an existing and ongoing project as a case, we have been able to set up the organization, structure and R&D processes from the content. As a result, it will not only remain with advice, but the implementation and the final result will prove that the change has been fundamentally implemented.

From fixed to flexible and lower costs

One of our customers has difficulty finding good technical staff or engineering capacity in the market. From the beginning of 2018 we are helping and we have first housed small quantities of drawing packages with our partner in India. At start the activity was limited to translation from 3D to 2D drawings. With our experienced engineering account manager on location at our customer, we have ensured a seamless transfer that includes all details, particularities, comments and notes. Gradually, the activities have expanded and drawings are now also completed by our partner in India.
With this our customer has solved their capacity problem, the work is delivered quickly and adequately, they only pay for the capacity that is needed at that moment and the total costs are considerably lower.

From automation to linking systems

Everything is about digital and big data nowadays. By capturing, analyzing and subsequently converting these data, you can substantiate decision-making and improve processes. The relevance and value of this is increasingly being seen at the moment. After the large multinationals, SMEs now also follow.

Such a transformation requires vision and insight, but also the necessary investments.

Investments to adjust and link the different IT systems.

As IM-Aces we know that this should be done well and thoroughly, but certainly also economically justified. The business model is central. That is why we not only focus on the best, but also on an affordable solution.

We specialize in the selection and implementation of IT systems as well as troubleshooting of complex interactive production or development issues through the application of smart sensors, big-data capturing and data analysis. In addition, we develop software to control and automate rule-based processes (robotic process automation) and together with our back office in India we can carry out labor-intensive data conversions (analogue & digital) quickly, reliably and affordably.

IM-Aces supports this digital transformation with its clients and makes the associated processes transparent, accessible and affordable, taking into account not only the installation and implementation costs, but also the risks and follow-up costs.

What are we doing?

IM-Aces provides knowledge & experience and helps to implement successfully.

For adequate problem solving, companies often lack ready knowledge and experience at a high level. This is often caused by a shortage of suitable personnel or the temporary character of the demand for demand.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for experienced technical professionals with at least 25 years of experience from HBO work and thinking level who want to use their expertise with enthusiasm.

Are you the experienced, driven, enterprising and innovative professional who wants to help companies with his/her knowledge? Please contact us. For us your age doesn’t matter. More important are your competencies, your commitment and your ability to solve problems.

The business sector benefits from your experience and accumulated network!
