Credera's First Branded Offering
As Credera continues to grow and reach new markets, innovation at Credera continues to scale. Our geographic expansion in the United States, as well as into the UK market, has grown our innovation footprint to span more diverse industries. We found the need to define our established Structured Innovation offering and create a unified voice around what Credera Innovation is. To ensure consistency under Credera's master brand, we've chosen an endorsed brand approach so that our innovative uniqueness is apparent, but our structure and cornerstone remain the same.
"It's no secret that innovation is at the top of most companies' agendas, especially as we're collectively emerging from the COVID era,” says Jake Carter, Credera’s Chief Innovation Officer. “We're excited to launch Credera Innovation to mark the work that our teams do to help companies tackle their innovation agendas."
