Case Bosch Rexroth

Agile and award-winning partnership benefits both parties 

The long-standing partnership between Bosch Rexroth and Devecto, a part of Gofore Group, helps save valuable time and improves efficiency in developing software for electronic control units.  

 Bosch Rexroth is a global provider of products and system solutions for various mobile machine applications. Their priority is to provide customers with electronic control units (ECUs) cost-efficiently and on schedule. Devecto, a part of Gofore Group, is Bosch Rexroth’s long-time partner in developing intelligent ECU software for mobile hydraulics.  

Devecto’s strength lies in their highly talented personnel who work hard to ensure our projects are successful. Devecto is a valuable systems integrator for us, helping Bosch Rexroth secure high-quality software for our mobile hydraulic control units that are fully tested and documented, Bosch Rexroth Technical Director Henrik Jarl says. 

 

Extensive experience helps save time 

The partnership enables Bosch Rexroth to deliver control units to their customers quickly. Bosch Rexroth provides Devecto with training, technical support, and advanced information on new products. The streamlined collaboration saves valuable time for both Bosch Rexroth and their clients.  

– I can say with confidence that we know Bosch Rexroth’s products through and through. Dozens of collaborative projects have given us an excellent understanding of the solutions their clients require. Thanks to our partnership, Bosch Rexroth’s clients get a running start in their software development, Devecto’s Business Manager Karl-Kristian Högström says. 


Devoted partnership from start to finish
 

At the core of the partnership is a common mission to craft custom solutions that meet the needs of Bosch Rexroth’s customers. A typical project begins with specification workshops that help define the required ECUs and their features. Client input is equally critical for a successful development and testing phase. Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing is often employed to create a simulated working environment for the ECU. 

The partnership extends from the first stages to the finish line and life cycle support of a project. Problems detected even in the deployment phase are quickly fixed and Bosch Rexroth can deliver their equipment on schedule.  

– Devecto has a technical prowess, a mindset geared to agile development, and a deep understanding of the mobile machine sector. This has ensured that our customers get the devices they ordered working quickly and cost-efficiently. Devecto’s experts are brilliant at combining their technical expertise with the contractor’s and customer’s wishes in their carefully tailored software solutions. They always take responsibility for projects, and we can fully trust in their expertise and keeping to schedule, Henrik Jarl says. 


High-quality work receives recognition
 

Devecto’s long-term work in Bosch Rexroth’s system integrations received recognition in September 2019 when system integrators from 22 countries convened in Lyon, France for the Bosch Rexroth System Integrator Days 2020. 

 The event provided Bosch Rexroth partners with the latest information on products and new innovations, a chance to network, and joint workshops for developing new application concepts. Bosch Rexroth Integrator Awards were given to exceptionally successful and innovative partners. Devecto received the award for long-term and high-quality co-operation with Bosch Rexroth in the field of software development for mobile electronics. 

– Our partnership benefits both parties. It is always exciting to work with the latest Bosch Rexroth innovations and be in the front line of adopting and applying new technologies, Devecto’s Karl-Kristian Högström says.
