Essilor Europe creates its collaborator and organization framework in Simplicité
World number one
Present in more than
Billions of sales


Essilor is the world number one in prescription lenses. Present in more than 100 countries, the group draws its success from a strategy whose innovation has been the driving force for over 160 years. From design to manufacturing, the group develops a wide range of lenses to correct and protect eyesight.

We selected Simplicité because of its promise of agility, cost reduction, coverage of our specific business needs and compliance with our cloud technical constraints. Promises kept and even beyond since we were able to mature our needs during the project and go beyond the strict scope that we had originally imagined. Simplicité has demonstrated its industrial and flexible character and we now intend to replicate this success on other projects.

Head of Europe IT Software Delivery Center, Essilor


With more than 50,000 employees around the world, employee management is a major challenge for companies. As part of its transversal activity, the Human Resources Department of Essilor Europe must fully control its organization. To do this, it must be able to have reliable and up-to-date data on staff and organization. Since information is available in different places on the Information System, the main challenge is to create a centralized HR repository shared by all, guaranteeing the quality of the data.
