Our ecosystem

A network of solution providers and experts dedicated to your projects

Since our creation, we have been building a network of knowledge from different backgrounds that we can mobilise to provide the best answer to your needs. We work with some of them on a daily basis (without exclusivity) as part of our tool deployment missions (digital shopfloor, visual management, performance, etc.)

Our convictions

  • Be obsessed with the created value, not the technology deployed
  • Digital transformation and the deployment of Industry 4.0 technologies will exist only if they are owned by the operators
  • Deploy 4.0 requires working at all levels of the organisation, both on the field (expertize) and with top management (vision)
  • Transformation is not a matter of slides
  • Direct exchange between industrialists is very valuable
  • Communities, within a company or between companies, ensure the success of the transformation

They talk about us

I am quite impressed by the speed of deployment of companies. If you compare where we were at the beginning of the year and now I see that we have all made big steps of change, we have also identified the challenges for the years to come. Extremely well structured.

DANONEOperations Director

By participating, I was confirmed several times on some choicesand this made my vision evolve. What I consider great are these workshop moments where we take a step back, review our ideas & take time to ask ourselves new questions.
