CREWS 2022: stories of experimentation from our R&D teams


FROM 00:00
Guido Polcan

Over the past five years, we have welcomed innovation through our Crews program, a fun concept set up to manage our R&D efforts; with few rules and a lot of freedom. In a way, Crews work like in-house startups on a deadline, in that they have 4 months to develop their ideas. Those ideas can birth massive projects: indeed, many of them have eventually become an integral part of our offering, substantially bettering our internal processes.
