ADAPT Programme

Using Automation and Digitalisation to boost productivity


Helping businesses to learn from world-class innovators and adopt new digital technology.

Two of Cheshire East’s most digitally advanced businesses have opened their doors to help smaller businesses learn from their expertise.

Siemens in Congleton and RedEye in Crewe took part in our Adoption of Digital Automation Processes and Technology (ADAPT) Programme funded by Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency.

Siemens have developed ground-breaking product development and production techniques at their variable speed drives factory in Congleton and RedEye have pioneered the use of marketing automation software used by some of the UK’s biggest brands.

The best practice learning visits took place in March 2019 and offered the opportunity to see first hand how new digital technology could be applied to boost productivity and maximise growth.

Each visit will be facilitated by an Innovation Expert who will ensure that you take away practical learning that can be applied in your own business.

This programme has now closed. You can read the final project report here and view video case studies :
