Publishers and integrators

  • An overview of the players

We meet with numerous publishers and system integrators on a regular basis to discuss their latest offerings and technological innovations and to test the reliability of their solutions before proposing them to our clients. This allows us to support our customers independently, from choosing the best solution for their situation through to its implementation.

  • Specific partnerships

In addition to this overall vision of the solutions we can offer our clients, we are committed to creating a lasting relationship with certain players by establishing non-commercial and non-exclusive partnerships that give our consultants privileged access to our partners’ roadmaps and advanced training programs.
