Eptica accelerates its European expansion

Eptica, leading provider of e-CRM software and specialists in incoming email management, has consolidated its 2006 position as French market leader and aims to become European leader in 2007

Eptica has currently over 150 customer references across all sectors and has managed over 100 million emails in the past five years. Its solutions are sold under licence with particular take-up of its new ASP module: only seven months after its launch in May 2006, over 35% of Eptica's clients have opted for the new ASP solution, Eptica ASP-Ready™.

Founded in 2001, Eptica proves its position as French market leader and anticipates continued and accelerated growth in 2007, particularly through ASP mode sales and the development of its specialist partners' network.

Eptica's partnership with Atos Wordline was given the seal of approval at the IE Club awards on the 22nd November 2006, when named as prize-winners by the Observatory of Innovative Large Entreprises and SME Relations , further confirming the reliability of a solution which has already attracted PPR Group's principal brands, such as La Redoute, Fnac Eveil Et Jeux. Eptica and Atos continue their collaboration, working with prestigious names including Renault Communications, Mistergooddeal and more recently with new references, Aquarelle, ExxonMobil and Finaref.

As well as continuing to develop its partnerships with solution partners and technology integrators, Eptica's major objective in 2007 will be greater expansion abroad, in Europe in particular, through new local teams. The opening of a new London office in September 2006 has already helped secure a contract with public sector client, Brent Council.

As part of its international growth plan, Eptica is currently appointing seven new positions, including sales, pre-sales and project managers, based either in London or Paris.

As is only fitting for an innovative business and solution provider, Eptica has always invested considerably in the research and development of new solutions. Eptica will maintain this policy in 2007, devoting 35-40% of its turnover to these investments. From November 2007, Eptica will also join the competitiveness pole, CAP DIGITAL.

The beginning of 2007 will see the launch of a new offering: an entirely new software platform capable of integrating with solutions and localising and adapting them to each key territory's unique needs. This platform will also provide marketing, communication and sales tools and technical pre-sales and sales support.
