Charles Maridor, General Delegate of CCI France International and Pascal Ameline, in charge of the digital activity at CCI France International tell you how this relationship was born and how these links were forged. Why did you call on Blue Soft ?

In 2012, the Klesia Group was born from the merger of two players in the social protection sector. Since 2009, the European Solvency 2 directive has sought to make the insurance industry more secure, by requiring it to have a high level of equity to cover exceptional claims. For many players, this can only be achieved by joining forces. With this operation, Klesia has the necessary size and solvency to be a leading player in social protection, for many sectors of activity. Any merger calls for a pooling of means, resources and tools. The Klesia group quickly took action on several facets of its information system to bring coherence to the whole group, streamline flows and pool efforts. In a multi-project context, our subsidiary Ileo, a consulting firm specializing in insurance, supported the deployment of an insurance management ERP that has become a market benchmark. Rather than creating an "in-house" ERP solution, Klesia relied on Cegedim, a publisher specializing in the health and provident ecosystem, to build a solution that could be adapted to other market players. An innovative idea based on the sharing of production fundamentals, but one that required the utmost rigor at every level. For the recipe [...]
Last April, in the midst of a period of confinement, Ileo - a consulting firm specializing in project management and operations management in the banking and insurance sectors - joined the Blue Soft group family. With its insurance expertise and strong regional presence, Ileo reinforces the group's strategy and vision. A few months after the deal, let's take a look back at Ileo's history, expertise and development within the group with Thomas Clément, Chief Operating Officer. Can you tell us why, after several successful years in the insurance and banking sectors, you chose to join forces with Blue Soft ? Thomas Clément explains: "When Ileo was created in 2008, we decided to hyper-specialize in the banking and insurance sectors. In the midst of the financial crisis, the three original founders had a vision of what was to come: tighter regulations and the resulting major changes to the information systems of all players in the sector. At the time, there was no such thing as a pure player in SSI project management, and even less so in the insurance industry. As a result, Ileo was able to blossom into a [...]

Positive of course! For the past two and a half years, Rue du Commerce has entrusted Blue Soft with the management of part of its IT resources. After a previous experience with our teams, Jean-Michel Colas, its IT Director, wanted to continue this approach when he took up his position at Rue du Commerce. "There is a real problem of recruiting competent service providers in our business. We are happy to be able to work with a company that understands our needs and knows how to meet them, it's as simple as that," he says. A strong focus on customer experience In the consumer e-commerce world, competition is fierce and customers are adamant about the quality of their experience.
