« The discovery of digital is over, we have entered the maturity phase », declares Geoffray Gruel, COO of Ippon Technologies. A real challenge to create value, to last and establish itself as a leader in its market, digitalization is constantly accelerating, with increasingly concrete investments. Founded in 2002 by Stéphane Nomis, former judoka and current president of the French judo federation, Ippon Technologies is a French consulting firm specializing in tech which, despite the passing years, has not denied the values, in connection with the origin of the company. ” The values of sport, such as surpassing oneself and mutual aid, guide us, it is very important to us. We have also succeeded in creating this dynamic common to all our branches, in France and elsewhere. “says Arnaud Col, Director of Innovation at Ippon Technologies.
Indeed, the company born in France has gradually developed in the United States and other countries. ” Even if today more than half of our activity is on our territory, our strongest growth is internationally where we have broken the barrier of entry to the United States. “, explains Geoffray. Thus, in full expansion, the French firm has approximately 700 employees worldwide.
A projection into the future of Tech
Their mission is to support companies of all sizes, mainly start-ups, scale-ups or large groups, to develop an appropriate and innovative digital strategy, a source of value. ” What sets us apart is our ability to carry out the entire upstream phase of the project, by bringing out business needs and proposing new digital products, with our product, UX, design, etc. consultants. We will then develop the strategy with our teams of developers, data architects or cloud engineers. adds Arnaud. Thus, whether on BtoB or BtoC projects, Ippon Technologies takes care of the reflection phase, the discoveryand the production phase with its experts at the forefront of the latest innovations.
Being a player in innovation and technological developments is also the priority of the French firm. Already with a view on Web3, the new version of the Internet which will be more decentralized, Ippon Technologies seeks to be ahead of its time, to support its customers in being one too. ” I have little doubt that this is going to be an extremely important revolution “says Arnaud. So, in addition to emphasizing its solidarity commitments by working with the Ippon Foundation which connects Africa to the internet or which supports the return to employment of young people from the neighborhood in France, Ippon Technologies is continuing its strong development across the Atlantic. And, still with its identity intimately linked to the world of sport, the firm aims to hire its 1,000th employee during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
