Qucit makes life easier at Dublin Web Summit 2014

Marine Juillard - 16-oct.-2014 18:46:07
Qucit, a prize winner at the Worldwide Innovation Challenge in July 2014, offers predictive analysis tools to optimise urban mobility, diminish pollution and improve the well-being of citizens. The company will be presenting its solutions on the UBIFRANCE FrenchTech pavilion at the Dublin Web Summit, which will take place at the Royal Dublin Society from 4 to 6 November 2014. Founder of Qucit Raphaël Cherrier explains: “Our aim is to use the strength of real-time data, predictive analysis and machine learning to help improve the development of attractive and more sustainable towns, in terms of consumption of raw materials (energy, time and water). The company’s flagship product – which is a world first – is a prediction motor integrated with the Bonne Station system from Keolis Bordeaux that analyses the use of self-service bicycles in urban areas.   Over recent years, a number of conurbations have developed systems of self-service vehicles, the majority of which are bicycles. This new transport option is growing rapidly, both in terms of the number of participating towns and cities as well as the number of users. An additional 200 towns worldwide are currently equipping themselves to enable their inhabitants to benefit from self-service vehicles. One of the main problems encountered with self-service bicycles involves the restocking of docking stations. Restocking is essential to ensure a balance of available vehicles and empty docking points in any one station at any one time. Many stations are often badly balanced, with a lack of vehicles in some and a lack of parking places in others. At present, restocking is carried out by lorries that travel across town centres from station to station. This exercise creates pollution and congestion and has considerable room for improvement. There are numerous benefits to Qucit’s application, including facilitated network growth, service reliability and improved equipment quality. Statistical analysis allows for better breakdown detection and Qucit’s predictive analysis makes it possible to modify the use and control of the network of shared vehicles for a fraction of the current cost and without CO2 emission. Mr Cherrier adds: “We do not restrict ourselves to bicycles. Qucit’s next projects involve the extension of the self-service bicycle tool to other uses linked to the prediction of urban mobility (parking, public transport, etc.).” About Qucit Qucit was founded in May 2014 by Raphaël Cherrier, a former Lecturer at Arts et Métiers Paris Tech (ENSAM), a specialist engineering university in Paris. It currently has five employees but envisages rapid international growth. Qucit specialises in the development of real-time big-data analysis and predictive analysis tools that can be used to optimise mobility, lower pollution and improve the well-being of citizens in towns and cities across the world. These award-winning analysis solutions have been developed over a three-year research period as part of is an ongoing project in partnership with the LaBRI (Bordeaux Laboratory of Computer Research) and the IMB (Bordeaux Mathematics Institute).

Domoscio knows how to succeed at Dublin Web Summit 2014

Marine Juillard - 13-oct.-2014 16:59:46
Domoscio of France, a specialist in the field of educational technology (EdTech), will showcase its expertise at this year’s Dublin Web Summit, which will take place at the Royal Dublin Society in Ireland from 4 to 6 November 2014. Domoscio is keen to meet potential partners and investors as part of its strategy for international growth. Domoscio’s CTO Benoit Praly says: “Lack of knowledge can be costly. Domoscio is an adaptive-learning solution based on the consolidation of knowledge. We encourage businesses and training organisations to address issues surrounding efficient learning processes and to measure the relevance of training programmes.” By linking cognitive studies with adaptive algorithms, Domoscio acts as a personal assistant for more rapid learning and longer information retention. To achieve this, Domoscio calculates optimum revision periods and topics for each user according to their learning abilities. In fact, the solution tends towards short revision periods that gather together several key principles. CEO of Domoscio Ivan Ostrowicz explains: “It is easy to see the advantages. At a time of free and accessible content both for and by all, it is essential to re-invent the acquisition and use of knowledge. For example, e-learning must no longer be the simple delivery of knowledge and information, but assimilation and mastery of know-how.” From the first evaluation of the user’s competencies to the implementation of acquired knowledge (based on the structuring of knowledge), Domoscio pilots an adapted and personalised revision programme by sending messages (aides-memoires) by smartphone notification or by email to each user. Furthermore, Domoscio provides individualised and detailed analysis of each learner’s level of knowledge. Mr Ostrowicz adds: “Domoscio helps to pilot and measure the effectiveness of training schemes. It allows e-education providers and training specialists to improve and personalise training methods, enabling users to learn more by optimising effort.” Users become more efficient and regain the taste for learning. For example, to help a student achieve 100% rather than 60% in their history test, Domoscio sends personalised messages by smartphone notification or email that focus on areas of knowledge that had not previously been retained by the user. For example, the message will recap the three countries that took part in the Yalta conference if the user was only previously able to recall two of them. Domoscio can be used by business managers to monitor their employees’ progress in terms of acquisition and practical implementation of knowledge. With this information, the employer is able to adapt programmes to suit personal training needs as well as measure the adequacy of their training plan. Training centres can also benefit from Domoscio’s solutions. With the help of personalised statistics, it is easy to evaluate and enhance current training programmes as well as develop new services. Domoscio’s solutions conform to IT norms (interfaces and plug-ins), making them compatible with all information systems. About Domoscio Domoscio, which is headquartered in Paris, is a French start-up providing technological solutions in the fields of education and training. The solution uses a statistical algorithm based on best practice in cognitive sciences and neurosciences in order to anchor knowledge and enable the user to progress their studies at their own rhythm. Domoscio’s aim is both to improve the skill level, through increased knowledge retention, of all users (students, trainees, etc.) as well as help parents, teachers, trainers or managers in their roles as educators, mentors and tutors, giving the trainee a desire to learn and pleasure to succeed.

French cybersecurity firms increasingly successful in fast-growing market

Marine Juillard - 30-juil.-2014 10:51:21
In 2013, there was a 12% year-on-year rise in cybersecurity attacks, with nearly 60% of them causing either brand damage or direct revenue loss to businesses. This, coupled with highly publicized commercial and government breaches of IT security, has increased the demand for cybersecurity services. French companies are strongly placed in this growing market and their advanced solutions are in demand.     The 12% year-on-year increase in cybersecurity attacks that affected businesses in 2013 (Source: IBM 2014 Cyber Security Intelligence Index ), regrettable as it may be, translates into the fact that the IT-security sector is experiencing sustained growth in this segment of the market. High-profile cases, such as the cyber-attacks on US retail chain Target, have raised awareness among business executives.   While US-based and British companies dominate current business in this sector, client entities are looking for alternatives in order to alleviate their worries of government intrusion. In this respect, French specialist companies are a strong contender in the eyes of many professionals and executives working for SMEs and start-ups, but also at established, larger groups: these clients are leveraging the French know-how stemming from top R&D centres and universities.   In 2013, the French cybersecurity sector was valued at more than $2 billion. The French network-security sector offers a wide range of services, including B2B IT solutions meeting strategic challenges, and comprises many world champions such as Atos, Orange, Sogeti, Bull, Cassidian and the cybersecurity division at Thales.   Thanks to their advanced technical research laboratories, more particularly in cryptology and encryption, French players are recognized worldwide.   According to Thibaut Barde, UBIFRANCE’s Project Manager for Digital Trust & Cyber Security, “T he reason for cutting-edge technology [thriving in France] is the quality of French universities in the field of engineering, which is known globally.   Research laboratories associated with these universities train the best engineers of tomorrow.”     Secure IC SAS is a shining example of a company that has been working with top graduates having come out of the French educational system in order to become a thought leader in cybersecurity. Its platforms provide the highest level of security on a client entity’s embedded systems, preventing hacking and reverse engineering as well as protecting intellectual property and proprietary data. In 2013, Secure IC SAS won a Sesame Award for innovation in the manufacturing and testing of IT products.   French start-ups and SMEs have developed out of a strong domestic talent pool and many have decided to join forces under the HexaTrust label, which regroups 20 hi-tech SMEs that are keen to offer a co-ordinated, total service package to their clients.   T hese software vendors and integrators provide a full range of products and services dedicated to the protection of the critical infrastructure of businesses and institutions from cyber-attacks. The HexaTrust umbrella group’s portfolio of current and potential clients is diverse and growing, including businesses and public-sector agencies of all sizes.   Due to the dramatic increase in the level of sophistication and intensity of cyber-attacks, public- and private-sector investment in cybersecurity is growing fast and is expected to rise by nearly 10% per year between now and 2017. This trend illustrates the promising opportunities that exist for a large business looking for a new market, or for a dynamic SME scaling up a new product.   Thibaut Barde of UBIFRANCE Paris explains that, “France’s distance from recent scandals [involving the international and covert collection of data by various government agencies, as revealed in the media] is favourable for French players since awareness on the use of data takes place at a global level. This has helped to build the profile of the industry and has generated increasing concerns for [the security of] personal data, which is a real asset for the French in particular: it is important when it comes to ​​data-storage companies, among others.”   Many French companies in the sector are choosing to develop an international business outlook. French players have strong opportunities to seize in this market thanks to their technological expertise, combined with the diversity of products and services they can offer.   UBIFRANCE is here to help, with a strong presence at next year’s Infosecurity Europe trade event, where there will be as many as 15 French companies looking to expand their presence into the British market and other European markets. Infosecurity Europe will take place from 2 to 4 June 2015 at the Olympia exhibition centre, in central London (UK).   For further information about the trade show, please go to:   http://www.infosec.co.uk/   For further information about UBIFRANCE, please go to:   http://www.ubifrance.com/

French sports-events companies keep on winning

Marine Juillard - 29-juil.-2014 10:30:48
While the men’s French football team had its last kick in this summer’s World Cup in Brazil, many French companies continued their successful campaign at the world’s premier sporting event. Rio de Janeiro was the host of the final of the World Cup and one could see signs of French business presence almost everywhere.   GL Events of Francemanaged Rio Centro, an exposition park that was the site of FIFA’s organization committee and press centre. Nearby sits a 306-room hotel that was used by many of the FIFA delegates: it was built by French construction group Bouygues and designed by French-born architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Each day, when officials arrived at the state-of-the-art Maracana stadium, the renewable energy powering the stadium was supplied thanks to a pilot project run by French energy group EDF and its partners.   French-based companies have a long history of winning contracts for the supply of products and services at major international sporting events. According to Viviane Silberstein, Project Head at UBIFRANCE, much of the winning know-how of French businesses is acquired in their domestic market: “When French companies go abroad, they have to adapt to other markets, but domestic experience already gives a reference and an image, like Roland Garros or the next European football championship, and this is very important for an organizing committee.”   France has proven experience in handling international sports events: the country has hosted various Winter Olympics (Chamonix, Grenoble and Albertville), the 1984 UEFA European Championship, the 1998 FIFA World Cup, and the 2007 Rugby World Cup. Every year, France organizes the Tour de France cycling event. Roland Garros is another key international sporting event organised in France, and the country will host the 2016 UEFA European Championship.   GL Event’s performance at the 2012 Summer Olympics helped the company to launch a successful bid for contracts during this summer’s Football World Cup in Brazil. GL Events was responsible for the design and installation of 25 indoor and 15 temporary outdoor sites across London — a contract that represented €21 million. However, even before this sizeable addition to its portfolio, GL Events had been managing a range of international events in Paris for years.   In 2014, the Winter Olympics — the most expensive in history, at a total cost of $51 billion — took place in Sochi, in the Russian Federation: 12 French companies won a total of €100 million in contracts.   A 2013 survey of the Rhône-Alpes region in South-Eastern France found that there are 300 locally based companies involved in the management of the winter-sports industry, bringing in approximately €1 billion in revenue per year. After all, France ranks third worldwide in winter-sports tourism, after Austria and the USA…   French companies, building on their track record, have been successful domestically and internationally in this field. Innovative companies, which offer new products and technologies, find opportunities to showcase their solutions and grow . Seat Advert is a very young company that is revolutionizing the sporting experience: its small screens, as installed in stadiums, allow viewers to peruse ads and access real-time information, including game statistics. Seat Advert’s innovative solution has already found new clients in Mexico, with plans to expand into South America. The company has recently been awarded a contract for this year’s World Equestrian Games in Normandy, in North-Western France.   Esportec Eco-Industriel is yet another young innovative company developing natural and ecological surfacing solutions for outdoor spaces. ECO’STABIL®, its patented material, is made out of waste and can be combined with other recycled products. While many of the uses of this and other products are not entirely recreational, they can be used to create cycle tracks, equestrian paths and footpaths. Currently, the company exports to Morocco, Benelux countries and Switzerland: the potential for expansion of this eco-friendly material in export markets is considerable, as more and more international sports events require contractors to pay attention to environmental considerations.   Ms V Silberstein of UBIFRANCE explains that French companies are not afraid to take on the biggest challenges and, with their many successes, it is not surprising that, “They are approaching the market based on the biggest business opportunities, and these are the biggest international events, international football events, and Olympic Games. The criterion is not francophone and country specific and, now, UBIFRANCE is working with companies on all events.”   International opportunities will continue to grow, with the $100 billion in new investments expected at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, $15 billion at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and $30 billion for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.   Apart from the biggest prizes over the next decade, there is a diverse set of opportunities that can sustain a business in the coming years. For example, there are smaller but lucrative events that French companies can target through UBIFRANCE, including sales expositions in Almaty (Kazakhstan) and preparatory events in Saint Petersburg (Russia) for the 2018 World Cup, all in the next 12 months.   Furthermore, existing markets are always in a state of flux and French companies with good products and services are being rewarded with new contracts. Bodet , an equipment manufacturer specializing in scoreboards and video screens, is a prime example. Even though this French company has been present in the Middle East for more than 30 years, it recently acquired new business from Al Jazeera Sport Studios and in relation to stadiums in Abu Dhabi and Kuwait City.   While Ms Silberstein admits that, “The international sports-event market is extremely competitive,” it is also clear that many French companies, encouraged by expertise gained in their domestic market, are more than ready for the challenge. Besides, as she points out, “New opportunities and existing national markets will only grow over the next decade, with contracts that are so big that, if you have a small percentage of this contract, it is worth fighting for it.”   In conclusion, it is clear that French-based companies are poised to continue with their off-the-pitch success in this competitive market.

YOU DON’T NEED A CRM launches Smart Prospect Lists

Marine - 25-juin-2014 11:25:13
YOU DON’T NEED A CRM, a company specialising in CRM solutions tailored to the needs of microenterprises and SMEs’ sales forces, has announced the launch of its innovative Smart Prospect Lists — a spreadsheet that is packaged with a business-development management tool in SaaS mode, thus making it possible to reconcile cold calling with the management of prospective contacts. The company, which already sells its solutions to businesses across Britain, is opening a London office.   Sunny Paris, CEO of YOU DON’T NEED A CRM, explains: “Having a physical presence in the United Kingdom and, particularly, in London, is of crucial importance for our development. Not only are UK businesses very well connected and responsive to the type of service that we are offering, but London, through its dynamism and the diversity of its inhabitants, is an essential base for reaching out internationally.”   YOU DON’T NEED A CRM already has clients in over 20 countries around the world, including Britain. Opening a London office will help the company grow across the UK and internationally. Neil Thomson, Commercial Manager of 2020 SolarPV ( www.2020heating.com ), a British company that markets and installs solar panels, says, “We need to follow up our leads until they either become a customer or are lost, and YOU DON’T NEED A CRM does that job very well. Input of new leads is simple and flexible. Recording follow-up calls is easy. And setting up a reminder for the next call is quick. Every day, we can look at the list of ‘Next Actions’ and make the appropriate calls. YOU DON’T NEED A CRM helps us to keep on top of our sales process in a simple manner, without having to labour under the weight of a complex CRM [system].” Sebastien Blanc, General Manager at Struq ( www.struq.com ), a leading UK-based technology company delivering performance advertising to major retailers worldwide, says, "We tried a lot of CRM solutions: most failed because they are hard to use and are a burden for sales representatives. We love You Don’t Need a CRM because it actually helps sales people do their job: they use the stand-by feature to be reminded of next steps, data is up to date and, as a result, sales leaders have accurate information about what’s going on. It is very easy to use and has a great User Interface. I definitely recommend this tool for any sales team in need of an efficient pipe-management tool.” Far too often, microenterprises and SME salespeople are forced to navigate between several tools in order to manage their business-development work. Typically, these tools will include a spreadsheet with limited features for the contacts files (which members of the sales force use in their cold calling), on the one hand, and a classic CRM tool, often complex and expensive, to manage opportunities (once the initial contact person turns into a genuine prospect and the business need has been properly identified), on the other. “With the launch of the Smart Prospect Lists, it becomes possible for sales people to benefit from the best of both worlds!” explains Sunny Paris, CEO of YOU DON’T NEED A CRM. “With our technology, an online spreadsheet is integrated directly into the YOU DON’T NEED A CRM application, which makes it possible to import lists of contacts or development files and to work without changing your practices. This makes your life easier and far more productive!” Smart Prospect Lists is a tool that helps manage one’s contacts, from cold calling through to the management of prospective leads. Salespeople can thus carry out their cold calling (or emailing), amend their files, and transform — at the click of a mouse — a contact into an opportunity, when the person contacted has shown signs of interest. A crucial advantage is that all the data relating to the prospect (i.e. the prospect’s attributes) are correctly defined in the system, and in real time. Once the prospect has been transformed into an opportunity, the salesperson benefits from all the effectiveness of the YOU DON’T NEED A CRM platform, which will help him (or her) to finalise the sale. The platform features an integrated management tool for To-Do tasks; full synchronisation with the schedule in order to manage follow-ups; a comprehensive history of information exchanges; an activity-flow monitoring functionality; and, finally, detailed statistics, among other functionalities. About YOU DON’T NEED A CRM Launched at the end of 2013 and headquartered in Paris (France), YOU DON’T NEED A CRM is a company that specialises in business-development management solutions in SaaS mode that are specially tailored to the needs of microenterprises and SMEs. Following the company’s commercial success and its fast growth since its launch, YOU DON’T NEED A CRM has decided to open an office in London (UK), which will assist the business in its development across Britain and in other export markets worldwide. The YOU DON’T NEED A CRM solution is already sold to clients in over 20 countries around the world, including the UK. For further information, please go to: ht tp:// YouDontNeedaCRM.com
