El Prat de Llobregat (Barcelona), 28 November 2007
Among the planned events highlighted, there was a roundtable in which several local organizations described experiences related to business innovation.
Canaletas is a company based in El Prat de Llobregat (Barcelona), for over 40 years it has been designing and manufacturing all kinds of water coolers and drinking fountains. Since its founding, the firm has been distinguished for its innovative character and today sells 50 different models. Its general director, Jordi Morera, was one of the participants in the roundtable.
Likewise, Morera´s view is that in a business environment, changes must come from above. Those responsible for the company must control the process and raise awareness among workers for the need to change. The scheme will only succeed if it manages to involve the entire staff. "
In this sense, Canaletas involves its employees in the decision-making processes. As an example, explained how an idea from one of his workers (to replace metal blades by a copper) was able to greatly improve the performance of a product.
This commitment to innovation has enabled Canaletas to take big projects. A few years ago the company decided to implement the ERP software, with which they have gained in flexibility and were able to improve its service delivery. Jordi Morera said that "thanks to this change as a company we have grown to the point of winning public competitions at international level."
