Iberdrola’s digital factory: The energy of change

Accenture and Iberdrola Distribución launch a Digital Factory to develop digital applications that allow it to transform inspiration into tangible, scalable, practical and effective ideas.


Call for change

When tech meets human ingenuity

A valuable difference

Optimization of processes

With end-to-end solutions, project development definition deadlines have shortened, reducing time-to-market. The use of agile methodologies makes it possible to have a minimum viable product (MVP) of a mobile app in just 15 days or, for a more complex app, in three months. In fact, productivity has tripled—for example, the company has gone from launching one application a year to launching three or four that are integrated with back-end systems.

Greater employee satisfaction

The incorporation of user experience and user interface (UX/UI) experts in the definition of applications facilitates the adoption of digital tools. This has resulted in a better experience for both the staff and the contractors. As users are incorporated at the beginning of each development, they help define solutions that solve concrete and tangible needs.

Better responsiveness

The need for flexibility and the ability to redirect resources based on various events became clear during the COVID-19 pandemic. To deal with pandemic impacts, key mobile applications were generated in three business days. These included a survey to enable staff to report their health status to human resources teams, and a passport for field professionals to carry the updated safe-conduct permissions with them. This responsiveness remains important in other situations that may arise, such as new legal needs.
