Rapid Growth Requires Rapid Change: Teleflex & Opex Team Up
Teleflex is a global provider of medical device technologies. During rapid growth from acquisition, they needed to digitally transform their organization to accommodate a global delivery model.
The Teleflex team worked closely with Opex to learn about all their options before making any decisions. Instead of burdening internal resources to assess the latest technology, they leaned on the Opex team to do the research on their behalf. Armed with the appropriate knowledge, Teleflex was able to pick the best solutions for their needs while moving initiatives forward. The outcome was encouraging; costs were down, and overall user experiences improved ultimately leading to more focus on the end customer.
“My team has a strong relationship with Opex. We consider them a key partner in our strategic planning. We talk about what’s changing in the industry and what trends are coming down the pipeline that we should be interested in from a planning objective.”
Joe Roberts, Senior Director, Global IT Services at Teleflex
