Chairman's Message

The Group starts 2021 with a “robust” scope that includes:

  • Software activities in the areas of CRM and Venue Management,
  • Services activities in the field of Digital Performance.

We will allocate our financial resources mainly to organic growth by strengthening existing activities and investing in an ambitious R&D plan in the field of CRM.

This strategy will be complemented by a limited number of small acquisitions that will enrich our know-how or our geographical coverage.

The Group’s primary expertise is the development of the talents of its employees, combined with quality management.

Over the next four years, we will monitor the progress of the business plan we published at the beginning of 2021 and communicate on the basis of these commitments to the market, to our customers and to our employees.

We thank our employees, customers and investors for our partnership and look forward to positive growth for all parties.
