The development of IS Management sourcing models answers three major requirements: optimising costs, coordinating digital transformation and respecting time to market.

To meet to these challenges, Gfi Informatique is committed to generating productivity gains on service provision, move to results-based sourcing models, standardising IT development processes and relocating some services to shared service centres in France, Portugal, Spain, Poland, Morocco and India. These actions will allow operational staff to focus on their jobs while improving the service for end users. The key: the quality of the partner is a measure of success.

An innovative and controlled industrial process

Our knowledge of economic performance and operational coordination is bolstered by a contractual and risk-based monitoring structure adapted to the customer's needs and the challenges of each of our projects. And our progress initiative, which was initiated at the launch and implemented throughout the transformation process, is reinforced by the exchange of best practice and supported by our knowledge of different market sectors. The goal is to boost our competitiveness while incorporating the specific characteristics of your markets.

Our catalogue detailing team units and service activities based models and industrial estimations allows us to address a wide range of issues and services from end to end.

How do we work? We apply tailored methods to specific industrial contexts backed up by distributed and agile service tools. Furthermore, the professionalism of our teams, our flexibility and the certification of our resources pool guarantee the highest level of expertise throughout the project. Finally, our ability to offer a partner approach for comprehensive outsourcing programmes assists in the transformation of the IS Management process as a whole.
