The merger between MCNEXT and Infeeny, an entity created by Econocom in January 2016, will establish the group as one of France’s top three service providers for Microsoft technologies.
Infeeny’s expertise in Microsoft solutions in a cloud and mobile environment, combined with MCNEXT’s skills in the field of Microsoft software solutions and development tools will enable the new company to offer an extensive range of services to assist its clients with their IT transformation. The new company will offer its services under the Infeeny brand.
This transaction marks a new strategic landmark in the development of Econocom’s partnership with Microsoft: this robust new entity boasts 350 employees, nationwide coverage, access to the Swiss market and 15 areas of Microsoft Gold expertise.
Hubert de Charnacé, currently Chairman of MCNEXT, will continue to hold this position with Guillaume Rochette (currently Director of Infeeny) as Managing Director.
Digital agency Plaza-design, a subsidiary of MCNEXT, is also joining Infeeny. It offers advice and assistance to major groups for implementing their digital workplace.
Guillaume Rochette explained: “This alliance creates an agile new player, with extensive skills and, as part of Econocom Group, will offer a relevant solution to address our key account customers’ digital challenges. The wealth of our combined expertise will also mean we can develop original, bespoke offers for the mid-market.”
He concluded: “Infeeny will also be one of only two players in France that can offer innovative packaged solutions for Office 365: Mozzaik365, Microsoft’s collaborative and social intranet portal.”
Hubert de Charnacé added: “Our teams’ skills are perfectly complementary and we share the same vision of our business and our commitment. We will grow into a unique player in the Microsoft world as part of Econocom Group, and benefit from the entrepreneurial culture instilled by Jean-Louis Bouchard.”
