Vitamine T

Intranet of Vitamine T Group

Vitamine T Group Group has 13 subsidiaries and more than 3,000 employees and generates a turnover of nearly 50 millions euros in 2012. Its core business is integration through economic activity, that is to say employing and training people sidelined from the mainstream of the labor market and supporting them towards sustainable employment. The 13 subsidiaries of the Group operate in different areas, such as market gardening, maintenance of green spaces, household appliances, etc

The Group gave us the mandate to build the Intranet which tie the subsidiaries. Agendas and collaborative spaces per subsidiary and inter-subsidiary were to be implemented. The Intranet home was to enable every employee to find easily information according to the subsidiary in which he is operating. One of the technical difficulties was linked to fine management of user rights. With Drupal and the expertise of our team, we solved that difficulty. We are proud to have supported the Vitamine T Group, whose slogan is: “To make people achieve success. By other means.”

Website, social networking and CRM of Rencontres du Mont-Blanc (Meetings of Mont-Blanc)

Once every two years, Rencontres du Mont-Blanc brings together more than 300 leaders of the largest social economy structures of the world (cooperatives, mutual societies, associations). These meetings take place in Chamonix.

To organize it, Rencontres needs to combine complex functions: a very finely calibrated CRM to manage communication upstream, but also all online registrations (with online payment and registered persons management); a social network available on the website to allow the actors of Rencontres to continue working together after the face-to-face meetings were held; a high-quality website, fully manageable by the communications team of the Rencontres organization; a videoconferencing tool to prepare remotely the Rencontres.

In order to respond to that complex request, TALCOD demostrated the core of its know-how: haute couture between open source software modules. A beautiful mission, whose result you can see there:

Functional specificiations for the Adie (French Association for the Right to Economic Initiative)

The Association for the Right to Economic Initiative helps people excluded from the labor market and from banking system to start their own business and thus to create their own employment with micro-financing. 463 employees and 1,700 volunteers work together through 119 local offices to develop economic activity fairly.

The Adie wanted to use a segment of its information system. In order to establish functional specifications that would really meet its needs and launch a call for tender under proper conditions, the Adie required our services. We conducted a face-to-face audit phase but also by videoconferencing, in order to understand the expectations of all the actors involved. We carried out an analysis of the current IS. Finally, we delivered functional specifications resulting from the synthesis of our work.

Sauvegarde du Nord

Governance manager of La Sauvegarde du Nord

The Association has 1,032 employees in 4 clusters: social inclusion, medico-social, protection of children and adolescents and addiction. This Association works on creating, setting up, coordinating and managing suitable schemes which implement teaching, educational and therapeutic actions, around three areas: prevention, care and integration.

The Association needed a web system to manage all its governance. So we deployed the TALA module on a Drupal heart. In this way, we are able to manage very finely and securely the access rights to the different segments of the system and documentation workflows.
