Issues and challenges

Icade, a major real estate developer in France, used the relocation of its head office as an opportunity to demonstrate the services the company has to offer. The company's aim was to promote new ways of working together and showcase its initiatives to open up the workspace as well as its managerial methods for this type of project. The relocation also provided Icade with the chance to strengthen its employer brand by implementing new working methods, such as "flex office."

"Orange Business Services suggested the Spark* solution, then helped us with its large-scale deployment for our relocation and the implementation of a customized training plan around the company's digitization. These are not independent tools. They are a package designed to help people work together."

Marc Leblanc, Director of the OpenID Icade Project
