…and HR software (HR information systems, Payroll, Core HR, Human Capital Management suite).
Talentia Software delivers its solutions both on SaaS and on-premise, operating through 10 offices (France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Canada, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Greece) staffed with more than 400 employees. The company also provides its solutions through a wide network of channel partners across Europe and South America, with revenues in excess of €70 million in 2018.
In 2016 we partnered with the management team to open a new phase for the group. After several years where cash generation has been the priority, we have focused the energy towards innovation and growth.
The very first move has been the acceleration of R&D efforts, to extend the Talentia product offering and strengthen the competitive advantages of its solutions. The effort is considerable, representing more than 1/4 of Talentia’s EBITDA in additional spending.
The next phase of the plan includes a material effort in sales and marketing, which is in progress. In September 2018 Pierre Polette, former CEO of Lexsi, partnered with us again and joined as new CEO of the group, while Viviane Chaine-Ribeiro became Chairwoman.
Viviane Chaine-Ribeiro is in charge of the external growth policy. Following the acquisition in December 2017 of Addedo, a Swiss-based IT consultancy firm specialized in highly-complementary corporate finance services and applications, Talentia pursues an active acquisition strategy across its geographies.
