Talentsoft Announces Merger With e-doceo

Paris (F), July 2016 – Talentsoft, a European leader in cloud HR, have announced their entry into a definitive merger agreement with e-doceo, ranked among the top five global leaders in the realm of eLearning solutions. Talentsoft will reinforce its global presence, keeping in line with the ambitions it announced following the investment round it closed with Goldman Sachs last October. The strategic combining of these two complementary businesses that share the same values will pave the way for Talentsoft to offer its clients a complete employee experience, tying competency management to career-development programmes and adapted learning courses.

The coming together of Talentsoft and e-doceo meets a strong market requirement: the integration of training into overall talent management. Talentsoft and e-doceo, both of whom are among the worldwide and European leaders in their respective sectors, share a talent-management approach that places the employees at the heart of the HR process and provides them with the necessary tools for personal and professional growth.

The two companies have been official partners for over two years and share a dozen joint customers in approximately ten countries. Their common clients include companies such as Armatis, Celio, FDJ, Monoprix, MACSF, Solocal Group, and Spie.

Already developed for joint customers, the integration between the two solutions is immediately available. Employees and managers have access to e-doceo programmes, actions, and learning sessions from the My Talentsoft platform. The integration offers an easy-to-use and intuitive user experience.

Jérôme Bruet, CEO at e-doceo, stated, "e-doceo is continuously innovating and optimising the training process, thus enabling professional competency development. What is most important to employees today is the ability to manage and continuously develop their competencies using various approaches - classrooms, eLearning, online classes, social learning - and media - PC or smartphones. Learning is no longer a top-down approach. Today, learners are co-constructors of their knowledge. We speed up this process using a disruptive application, SkillCatch, that allows companies to transmit knowledge to their employees by video and via short micro-learning sequences on their smartphones. Multi-award winner for product innovation, e-doceo enables companies to create their learning content by capturing the essence of their know-how and distributing it in a very simple way."

Bruet went on to add, "Our teams have many things in common: We share the same vision on the development of HR, the same engagement with our clients, and a similar culture of innovation. This is an excellent opportunity for us to write a new chapter alongside Talentsoft and offer our clients and employees a significant alternative solution and a unique European adventure."

By integrating all of e-doceo’s talents and their renowned expertise, Talentsoft is sure to speed up its development and strengthen its global presence, with more than 500 employees in fifteen countries spanning four continents. The international Customer Success Management team has increased in size and will be able to provide 24/7 technical and functional support to Talentsoft’s network of 1,500 clients and over eight million users.

With e-doceo's integration, Talentsoft can offer a brand-new learning module that features a revamped user experience and is completely and fully integrated to benefit employees, managers, and HR.

  • The module focuses on the development of employee competencies. Its integration into Talentsoft will offer employees personalised and continuously tailored learning programmes to ensure professional success, improve career development, and facilitate internal mobility.
  • Employees and managers thus have access to their eLearning content and can track their learning programmes from the My Talentsoft portal.  In a few weeks, a "Training Push" feature will be delivered to help make the connection between competency gaps and the training catalogue, directly offering employees and their managers the best-suited learning programmes.
  • In parallel, learning managers will have access to a consolidated learning catalogue, programme-creation tools, and centralised and simplified costs management, irrespective of the type of learning action that is being managed (in-person learning, eLearning, online classes, or social learning).
