Genèse

Having worked as a project manager, sales representative and then ESN executive, Jean-Christophe Legros, CEO of Opase, worked with a corporate buyer at France Telecom to identify the difficulties encountered by all players in the field. Receiving poorly defined invitations to tender makes it difficult to respond to demand, access to reliable KPIs is extremely complex, traceability of expenses and reporting are terribly time-consuming…

Birth

We’ll spare you the success story that began in a garage: instead, the idea for OBMS was born over a strong cup of coffee and grew up in a minimalist palace setting, on the top floor under the rafters of a Paris building, where a chair and a desk were enough to fill the space.

The ideas were flowing, the post-its were piling up, so how could we simplify the work of the 3 stakeholders and improve their collaboration? How can we measure and improve performance? How do you enable companies to remain sustainable and collaborate with the best specialized partners in the IT and engineering sectors?

… and voila! Did you say OPASE?
