UBIFRANCE helps French IT startups plug into global opportunities

Pauline Terzian - 08-déc.-2014 13:43:06

Companies of all sizes and sectors must have a scope of digital services for their clients or risk losing business. Fayssal Majid, Ubifrance’s IT project manager, explains: “Smartphone will be the new platform for all companies. They will need to have a mobile application as well as a site in order to attract customers and maintain a market share.” By 2020 the number of smartphone mobile subscriptions is expected to more than double to 6.1 billion. This is nearly the size of today’s global population of 6.7 billion.   Today’s France, ready for tomorrow’s world   France offers a mobilized IT ecosystem that is leveraging the best of France to not only satisfy the domestic market but also capture global customers. In fact the domestic market, a kind of reflection of the society’s focus on technology, has been following other developed countries in internet penetration and mobile usage: 54% of the French population uses the internet on their mobile and 74% of smartphone users research products and services on their phone.   Therefore, it should come as no surprise that France will be sending the biggest national delegation to 2015’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The size of delegation can be attributed to the quality of French engineers and the well-organized research clusters, many at a regional level, which offer incubation for a variety of independent ideas. For example take Systematic, a cluster from the Paris region, which has helped develop 379 projects and attracted investment of 2 billion euros over its brief history.   In fact, Mr. Majid explains that there are even further layers of organization that benefit the start up culture in France: “There are all startups which are very proud of their French roots but are looking globally. An initiative in collaboration with UBIFRANCE, La French Tech, helps them achieve this goal.”   La French Tech is a great collective project for the growth and influence of the French Start-ups and digital ecosystem and has been behind such firms as the award winning Citizen Sciences. Citizen Sciences is a prime example of a French company that is not only matching but also advancing the technological frontier. Citizen Sciences is pioneering application of the field of “the internet of things” – the connectivity of everyday items for the purpose of improving usage and limiting human involvement – towards the human staple of clothing. At the moment they are working on products that will gather multiples of data, from heart rate to specific movements, for athletes as to improve their performance. The company was recognized as a winner of an Innovation Award at the 2014 Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.   Ubifrance helps you reach your potential     Mr. Majid believes that the Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress in spring of 2015 is the perfect springboard for French businesses for global markets. IT has become much more of a global phenomenon and Mr. Majid believes that the direction of French companies should not only be towards showcases and markets in the US, but also emerging markets in Asia, South America , and even Africa: “Yes, French companies have always thought about the US, but in fact there is also much interest from places like the Middle East South East Asia and Africa, markets that are very large and growing.” Since the Mobile World Congress is a global event, this will provide the perfect introduction of French companies to prospective clients from all over the world.   Oledcomm is an example of a company that will be joining Mr. Majid in Barcelona. They are doing something truly special. Their products leverage your lighting network into something many of us find unthinkable: wireless communication and Internet services.   Famoco is yet another French company that will be at the MWC in Barcelona and they are working on a problem that we all though would be solved by now – contactless payment. Such advancements require massive logistical coordination and Famoco is making this possible. Look to Famoco to improve your experience in stores all around the world.   UBIFRANCE, the French agency for international business development, has 80 offices overseas. Its role is to help French companies in marketing their products abroad, as well assist foreign companies in finding French suppliers or partners.   More information about… Oledcomm Famoco The French Tech Pavilion @ Mobile World Congress The Mobile World Congress :

France shows the way to doing e-commerce!

Annamari LUUKKAINEN - 23-juin-2014 09:57:41

We all use e-commerce (and some of us all of the time), but do we fully realize in our economic crystal balls what the virtual universe of the Internet can do for a business? France does, to the tune of €51,1billion in 2013.   With broadband internet feeding households like never before, this trend is accelerating, up 13.5% this past year, even while traditional sales outlets are declining. Naturally, French e-commerce is part of a European phenomenon: sophisticated, well-educated consumers shopping and comparing on-line, whether it is for train tickets, fashion items, books and downloaded films, not to mention concert tickets or even electronic products and vacations. In fact, France finds itself positioned right in the middle of more mature on-line markets such as the UK and Scandinavia, while catering to fast-growing cyber-markets in Southern Europe.   Impressive numbers – and then there’s Christmas! The typical cyber-consumer in France spends on average €1400 annually, with a choice spanning 138,000 merchandizing sites, clicking to satisfy 33.7 million purchasers, each one with his or her own very personalized criteria. This represents a 17% growth rate for the number of sites in 2013, fueled by a rise of 5% in on-line buyers last year. Christmas frenzy often spells financial success for many e-commerce sites. For France, December 2013 accounted for a whopping €10 billion   of the year’s total results.   The Best in Class go international 15% of French sites export, generating 10% of their sales internationally. The really successful sites, representing over €10 million   in turnover, are able to boost these international sales by up to 20% of their total turnover. For 2013, the champions are Vente Privée, with € 1,6 billion, Showroom Privé, €350 million, Sarenza at €150 million   and in 29 different countries, while Spartoo out-does them by €130 million in 20 countries throughout Europe.   Cross-channel strategies Traditional companies such as Darty, Auchan and even Air France have grasped the importance of developing interfaces with e-commerce, selling cross-channel, from virtual to POS (Place of Sale). Tourism is an especially heavy-hitter, with Opodo and Go Voyages receiving avid travelers. Even SNCF-Voyages is also getting into the trend with offers covering car rentals and hotels, not just trains, and not just trains in Europe! E-commerce allows companies to envision doing business in entirely refreshing and international ways.   In B to B, the office supplies segment is active, with Bruneau and Viking modeling their entire business on-line, a lesson not lost on Manutan for its equipment.   The rules to play by With smart-phones now in every pocket, French companies are alert to adapting to international opportunities: respecting local-country consumer legislation, marketing with multi-lingual sites, regularly upgrading to be ergonomic, enriching their offers constantly. The usual rate of transformation from visit to virtual shopping cart is 2.5%; so New Age merchants must be quick to adapt to this new breed of impatient, demanding clientele. The e-consumer wants easy, practical and totally secure payment solutions ranging from credit card to Paypal. They also expect EU legislation on profiling and reimbursements to be strictly adhered to by the e-commerce site.   Up and coming events where Ubifrance can leverage exhibition opportunities for French e-commerce companies will be in Milan on May 20 th , in the UK and Ireland, from September 16 – 18 th , followed by San Paolo, October 6 – 7 th , with BtoB meetings dedicated to private sales.       For Further information about French companies in the e-commerce Sector :   > Electronics and IT   > Telecommunications and Space   > Trade and distribution   > Services   > Audiovisual content, Multimedia  

UBIFRANCE takes 20 French innovators to CeBIT 2012

Victor Jarny - 10-févr.-2012 09:43:57

  The trade show is the digital industry’s biggest event and will take place in Hanover (Germany), from 6 to 10 March 2012. UBIFRANCE will group together the French companies in two areas during the CeBIT trade show in March. Companies focused on new technology and research will be in Hall 9, and hardware specialists will be in Hall 14. A wide range of products will be exhibited, including those relating to business IT, business communications and networks, ICT infrastructure, IT and telecoms accessories, Future Internet, and 3D technologies. This year, CeBIT takes place in Hanover (in northern Germany) from 6 to 10 March. According to the European Information Technology Observatory (EITO), worldwide IT expenditure is experiencing substantial growth rates in emerging countries and should have risen by 4.3% in 2011, reaching €963.4 billion. In Europe, Germany stands out, as it exceeded the European average and experienced a significant increase in expenditure, up by 4.3% in 2011, while France enjoyed a 3.4% increase. The EITO highlights the substantial upsurge — by 4.2% — in the French infrastructure software segment in 2011. This trend is expected to continue in 2012, with a forecasted 4.8% rise. The growth in this segment is primarily the result of rising sales in storage-and-security applications, boosted by the proliferation of Cloud Computing offers. Also according to the EITO, the worldwide IT market in 2012 will grow by 5.4%, exceeding €1,000 billion in sales for the first time.
