Ambitions to match strong potential

Talentia Software aims to become an essential international player in finance and HR software by preserving its fast and steady growth while protecting its basic principles: a product offer reflecting the best market standards, targeting medium-sized companies and major groups, while maintaining high profitability and steady growth in revenue.

More than ever before, Talentia Software is in perfect shape to continue its development. The group has perfected the enrichment and streamlining of its product offer, broken down into two complementary pillars (HR/HCM and Finance/CPM) while developing its SaaS offering and its abilities in terms of hosting and service management at the European level.

In particular, Franck Boutboul will be responsible for developing an indirect distribution network to win new market shares with targeted offers that are specially packaged, upgradable and in SaaS mode only.

While continuing its R&D investments, which already account for 15% of revenue, Talentia Software is actively seeking acquisition opportunities to complement its organic growth strategy and ensure fast development that would create significant value for the group.

In so doing, Talentia Software intends to strengthen its international presence, balance revenue between France and other countries (currently 75% and 25%) and acquire additional technologies or functionalities to consolidate its HR/HCM and Finance/CPM product offers.
