Discovering pumps with Grundfos


For two weeks students from the Digital Developer class were busy developing digital concepts for Grundfos.

Grundfos is a Danish pump manufacturing company with the drive to develop quality solutions for the worldwide water utility market. They are a global leader in advanced pump solutions and a trendsetter within water technology.

They estimate that there currently are more than 100 millions of their pumps installed worldwide. However, the challenge that they face is that they do not know where exactly these pumps are installed.

Having the information about which pumps are installed where would be very beneficial to Grundfos as they would be able to utilize this information to offer better service and sales activities.

Grundfos asked our students to help them with this problem.

How can Grundfos gather information about the pumps installed. How can people be motivated to register this information with Grundfos? How would an app in the hands of people facilitate this registration?

The students had to explore this problem area and come up with a solution in the form of a concept and a digital prototype that validating their concept.

The students worked intensely for two weeks, developing, validating and testing their concepts. Finally, the concepts were presented to Grundfos. Two weeks of hard work and two weeks of great fun!
