What is the VCC?
The Value Creation Catalyst is a comprehensive, yet rapid consulting service to create superior products and high-value customer experiences.
The VCC is tailored to the specific needs of providers of physical products and services that don‘t (yet) have large research departments, tons of development staff, or the capacity for long-term, large-scale initiatives.
What will the VCC Help Me With?
In three steps the Value Creation Catalyst will help you develop the strategies required to create both a distinctive product design AND a high-value product experience that sets you apart from the competition. In summary the VCC focuses on:

- Designing not only a superior product, but also a high-value and brandworthy product experience around it.
- Finding new ways to provide relevant value to your ideal and most rewarding customers.

„When we hired Stefan, our company was suffering from an outdated public appearance that completely undermined the special quality of our service and made it look unprofessional. After a short time, we realized that Baselift’s approach was not to unquestioningly throw up the new homepage we had requested, but to solve our problem holistically. With Stefan’s help, we implemented many changes to our corporate communications and were able to develop a consistent, high-quality experience for our customers.„
