Background information

Essilor is the world leader in corrective lenses. Present in more than 100 countries, the group’s success is based on a strategy that has been driven by innovation for more than 160 years. From design to manufacturing, the group develops wide ranges of lenses to correct and protect vision.

We have retained Simplicité on its promise of agility, cost reduction, coverage of our specific business needs and compliance with our cloud technical constraints. Promises kept and even beyond since we were able to mature our need during the project and exceed the strict scope we had initially imagined. Simplicité has demonstrated its industrial and flexible nature and we now intend to replicate this success on other projects.
