“How to plan and implement smart environments”

A city is a living entity. Whether it be a major metropolitan area, a suburban municipality or the city center of a region, cities are where people come together to congregate, for commerce, to travel, for entertainment and to learn. 

Cities have been environments where innovation and transformation are constant, cities evolve and shape themselves to fit the culture, customs, and technologies available to the people who call a city home. Today, as we enter the 4th industrial revolution, we live at a time where we have a greater understanding of the world around us, our impact on the environment, our health and our humanity, combined with unparalleled technological capability – and so it is time for cities to transform once again. 

This transformation will not happen overnight, it takes planning, creativity, skilled talent, funding, and above all, a communal effort to adapt our cities for the societies and economies of the near future. This is not a new discussion, but now is the time for action, and we want to create a platform to share knowledge and allow cities across the world to move forward towards a new vision where cities redevelop with the mentality of ensuring the harmonious integration of people, technology and the environment. 

Arche is committed to helping municipalities transform their infrastructures and services to become truly connected, intuitive, empathetic and smart cities. 

Join us at Smart City Experience 2020 where Arche will officially launch our Smart Environment planning  and implementation services.

Philosophy of our services

At Arche, each of our mandates varies according to our clients’ projects. Our processes all begin with an analysis of your needs and your DNA so that we can offer you a personalized service adapted to your reality. Find out how our services can help you in your innovation projects:

Sector Public Icon

Innovation in a public organization can be a challenge. As an actor of change working within a government agency or a para-public entity, you have to innovate within a complex structure, with very specific rules about how you can work with external collaborators, how you choose suppliers, how your budgets are planned, and how decisions are made. All of these generate real factors that need to be taken into account whenever public funds are invested in innovation.

Arche has extensive experience and a team familiar with government procedures and regulations. Our strategies are tailored to adapt to your reality and offer you results-oriented organizational modernization.

Sector Private icon

All good companies constantly evaluate themselves and seek to use innovation as a way to perform better, reduce operating expenses and provide teams with the tools and knowledge to compete in an innovation economy. Too often, however, companies see innovation as part of their work, rather than as part of their culture that transforms the workforce into a community of problem-solvers.

Arche understands that as a company, you need to focus on your work and meet the needs of your customers. We understand your reality, let us show you how to integrate innovation into the way you work.

Academic & Research
Learn more

Innovation and the academic sector have always been synonymous. Universities and research centres have always been at the heart of innovation: testing ideas, demonstrating capacity and supporting industry in the development of countless technologies that we all use in our daily lives. However, because academia is the source of ideas, institutions often find it difficult to collaborate with the private sector, to support the full innovation cycle and to capitalise on the value generated by research.

Arche, having worked with many universities and research centres, understands the importance of finding new and creative ways to support the research community. Let us help you build structured innovation and collaboration models to transform your research into solutions that make an impact in the world.

Incubators, accelerators and entrepreneurship training programs have become the new engines of local economic development, helping entrepreneurs build the next generation of businesses. However, in this increasingly competitive field, it is becoming difficult to differentiate between different service offerings and support the revival of local economies.

Arche has worked with some of the best incubators in Canada to advise them on the development of their programs, their support ecosystems, and how to use open innovation to build bridges with SMEs and large companies and turn ideas into value.
