Entreprise et Personnel modernizes its entire IS with Simplicité

The publisher Simplicité Software was chosen by the Enterprise and Staff association for the renewal of its ERP in order to cover all of its businesses at the service of its members.

Entreprise et Personnel (E&P) is an association under the law of 1901, created in 1969, by HR directors of large French companies. It is positioned as an HR research and consulting institute on behalf of its members. The association now includes more than 110 member companies, private and public organizations, and has around forty employees. A member company can access the various E&P activities, which are exchanges, publications or studies, HR monitoring, intervention and training.

At the end of 2011, Entreprise et Personnel began a process of modernizing its entire information system and began looking for a tailor-made, integrated, modular and scalable solution to replace its existing tool.
Jean-Luc Pilliard, Secretary General of E&P, explains: “Our job is specific and corresponds to a heterogeneous set of follow-ups and activities that have different economic models. We had an information system based on Oracle, which was becoming obsolete and did not cover all of our needs.”

The idea of off-the-shelf software was ruled out from the start in view of the very specific needs of the association. Entreprise et Personnel therefore launched a call for tenders with clearly stated constraints: limited human and financial resources, multiple and complex activities and a need for a fine and evolving level of information. Simplicité Software's generic platform for designing tailor-made applications was selected as the most suitable solution.

“With the Simplicité® platform, E&P has acquired a complete ERP-type information system to cover its entire business. The objective of combining all complex and heterogeneous activities (exchanges, publications, publications, monitoring, monitoring, intervention, training, follow-up) in a single tool is fulfilled.” explains François Genestin, co-founder and President of Simplicité Software.

“Thanks to Simplicité®, we got the tool we wanted, which was at the same time specific, scalable and advantageous in terms of price. In addition, the solution is very intuitive to use, which greatly facilitates its appropriation by our employees.” indicates Jean-Luc Pilliard.
“In addition, we appreciated Simplicité Software's advisory role throughout the project. In the absence of an internal IT department and the required expertise, their team was able to listen and respond quickly to help us translate our expectations into technical implementation.” continues Jean-Luc Pilliard.

As the evolution of the tool is essential, E&P is already preparing version two. The flexibility of the Simplicité® solution is therefore perfectly suited to this.
