MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - October 11, 2016) - Technomedia, a Cegid Company, is pleased to announce its 20th anniversary. The company is celebrating the occasion with a special event at the Cirque Éloize in Montreal with customers, partners and employees in attendance. Topics for the event include the launch of its new PeopleVision solution, several presentations covering the latest in digital Human Resource (HR) trends, a review of Technomedia's recent achievements and an outlook for the future.
Alain Latry founded Technomedia in Montreal in 1996 to develop and sell a new web-based talent management solution for large organizations. Providing best-in-class talent solutions remains a core focus of the company today as it aims to grow its product portfolio, meet evolving customer needs, and continue to earn its position as an industry leader. Millions of users in over 75 countries across the financial, manufacturing, government, health, education and distribution sectors use Technomedia's solutions to recruit, manage, train, develop and grow their talent.
"Technomedia is best described as a company that is customer focused, audacious, and works well with partners," said Guy Delisle, one of the first customers to place trust in Technomedia nearly 20 years ago as Director of Talent Management at Rio Tinto Alcan. "The company has reached an enviable level of distinction in talent management solutions on a global scale."
Successful partnerships have played a critical role in the company's success, beginning with Bell Canada in 1997 as the company's first financial partner and distributor in Canada. Novacap, a private investment firm, became a financial partner in 2009 and played a vital role in assisting Technomedia with the successful acquisition of Hodes IQ in the United States, a provider of SaaS ("Software as a Service") recruitment solutions. In 2015, Cegid, a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions based in France, acquired Technomedia to provide integrated payment and talents solutions on a global scale.
Technomedia's focus on innovation has been recognized by many global industry organizations, including Aragon Research, Gartner, Training Industry and Brandon Hall. The company's ongoing commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, underscored by its ISO 9001 certification in quality since 2004, has been recognized by Bersin by Deloitte, IDC and Forrester. Technomedia also obtained ISO 27001 certification for its information security in 2009 and has maintained it year over year. In keeping abreast with technology trends, the company transitioned to purely SaaS solutions in 2012. More recently, Technomedia collaborated with the National Research Council of Canada in the development of innovative capabilities for its new solutions.
Technomedia has garnered significant customer credibility and confidence over the years, in large part due to the commitment of its employees.
"The talent, determination and never-wavering customer focus our employees demonstrate on a daily basis has enabled us to consistently deliver cutting-edge products," said Alain Latry, President and CEO of Technomedia. "Their drive for success and team spirit that has led us to where we are today."
As for the future, Technomedia will continue to focus on providing excellent customer support, listening to customer needs and delivering best-in-class solutions for People Management. The recent Silver Lake and Alta One investment in Cegid will further help to maintain and advance Technomedia's global leadership in the HR SaaS domain.
