WE SOLVE PROBLEMS

To innovate involves being able to recognize an opportunity that no one else sees, and create a solution to exploit that opportunity. For this, you must first have a good understanding of how things work now and more importantly identify the pitfalls, before you are able to propose your solution that will address the problem.
We live by this doctrine. We go well beyond just traditional "services" and focus our energies on identifying problems and providing innovative solutions. It's easier said than done. It takes training and an inquisitive mind. Something that our talented group of engineers has in plenty!
.

INNOVATION IS IN OUR DNA

We work with the best engineers on the planet. Period. It's a challenge, but over the years we have been very successful at hiring and retaining great talent! But as we often remind ourselves at CCE, "with great talent, comes great responsibility". We hire the best engineering minds and throw challenges at them that push their innovative minds to the limit.
Our engineers are encouraged to work on creative ideas of their interest and tinker with prototypes in our Innovation Lab. Some ideas are successful, most are not. But isn’t that what true innovation is? Like the famous saying goes "If you're not failing, you're not trying hard enough".
From our Innovation Lab...
CCE successfully designed and built a working prototype of a product named Quidli that automatically produces idlis, a breakfast staple consumed by most of South India.
Idlis are produced by a conventional process that is time consuming, inefficient and wastes water and energy.
Quidli is much more efficient than the conventional process as it is
4 times faster
Consumes a quarter of the energy
One-fifth of water of the conventional process

WHY CCE

"Problem Hound" mindset
Our relentless pursuit of seeking out problems and then figuring out innovative ways to solve them is what sets us apart from other companies. We go well beyond just traditional "services" and focus our energies on identifying problems and providing innovative solutions.
Managed by proven processes
But, while NPD is driven by creativity, like all creative pursuits it needs to be managed by proven processes. Without this discipline, projects keep running without any measurable outcomes for long periods of time. We have been in business long enough to know that there is a method to this, without which your new product development initiatives are likely to fail!
Using technology to remove barriers
Our technology background affords us unique advantages over our competition. We leverage the synergy between co-located software and engineering teams to address issues that are so prevalent between collaborators working remotely on engineering product development.
CCE has developed an innovative program, TrEND (Trusted Engineer Next Door), to establish a reliable communication system that fosters natural sharing of design and engineering ideas in a way as if everyone is in the same room. CCE also developed a web-based Work Order Management System, PowerLink to provide total visibility and accountability of your projects by facilitating reliable and secure communications, with a single set of documents available to all stakeholders, worldwide. With TrEND & PowerLink at both ends, whether you’re sketching an initial concept during ideation or discussing feedback on a physical part, location is no longer an issue and communication no longer a barrier!

QUICK START PROGRAM

Of course, we understand that talk is cheap. Engineering product development is an important part of your business and we understand your apprehensions about introducing any changes. That's why people have test drives, right? With that in mind, we have created a unique low-risk way to evaluate us and get a complete sense of our capabilities, processes and collaboration technologies. We call this the “Quick Start Program”. Please submit your information and we will get in touch with you within one business day and walk you through the process and how you can get started.
Thank you for your interest!

Our Goal
Our goal was to develop a product that would automatically produce Idlis, a breakfast staple consumed by most of South India. Today, Idlis are produced by a conventional process that is time consuming, inefficient and wastes water and energy. We successfully designed and manufactured a product named Quidli that is 4 times faster, consumes a quarter of the energy and one-fifth of water of the conventional process.
