Arcadis is set to launch a new global digital business this spring to secure its position among the leading providers of data-driven products and solutions across the natural and built environment.

The launch of Arcadis Gen is Arcadis’ latest move towards becoming a fully digitally enabled business. Operating as a separate legal entity, Arcadis Gen will be led by Chief Executive, Rachel White. With 200 employees based across the globe, it brings together recent acquisitions SEAMS and EAMS Group with software development specialists from the Arcadis business.

The new entity is being created to further accelerate Arcadis’ industry-leading digital transformation. While Arcadis continues to progress its innovation and digital strategy across its core operations, Arcadis Gen will be focused on the rapid development of various scalable digital propositions.

Arcadis Gen’s current solutions are designed to improve performance and optimize decision-making for its customers, helping them maximize the value of their data. The unique blend of its deep asset knowledge, combined with advanced analytics capabilities helps customers improve reliability, performance, efficiency and safety across their operations. Solutions include Enterprise Asset Management, Asset Investment Planning and Asset Performance Management -  which can be used from the very earliest stages of strategic planning through to operational delivery.
