Record-breaking growth for Talentsoft


After a very successful 2017, Talentsoft, the European leader in cloud-based talent management and training, increased its new subscriptions by 43% during the first half of 2018. Talentsoft reached the 2,000 customer milestone, hence achieving its growth aspirations both in Europe and globally.


A leader in human capital management

Having gained 200 new customers since the beginning of 2018, a record performance for the first half of 2018, Talentsoft is set to carry on with its innovation-driven acceleration strategy.


Talentsoft owes these results to three main sources of growth:

  • A unique vision of employee experience and the future of HR is at the root of the company’s innovative and distinctive products such as the Talentsoft Hub. Coupled with Talentsoft Analytics solution, this core HR module enables HR teams to consolidate all HR data centrally and to pilot talent management strategies effectively, even in highly decentralized organizations.
  • Talentsoft Learning — Talentsoft’s training & digital learning solution activity has doubled over the last two years. This outstanding performance has enabled Talentsoft to rapidly position itself as the key player for learning transformation within European multinationals.
  • Talentsoft’s iPaaS programme (Integrated Platform as a Service) — Talentsoft is determined to become the most open platform on the market. The Talentsoft iPaaS programme allows customers to integrate all HR digital innovations on the market, hence providing European multinationals with digital HR solutions that best suit their needs.


Stepping up globally

Several major international accounts have recently joined Talentsoft’s client portfolio. In Germany, we’ve welcomed CapriSun, a renowned player in the food & beverage industry.

In Belgium, major health insurer Partena became a new client. In Sweden, we’ve welcomed Ahlsell, a leading distributor of installation products and tools in the Nordics. In Norway, we’ve added global software asset management giant Crayon to our portfolio.

As part of the acceleration of its global expansion, Talentsoft established a subsidiary in Canada. Talentsoft now has over 50 Canadian customers and has already become a major reference there, with customers including large retail companies such as Mondoux and Uniprix, and transportation groups like Teo Taxi and Aéroport de Québec.


A driving force for the French Tech

In July 2018, Microsoft singled Talentsoft out as Microsoft Partner of the Year 2018  in the ISV Category (Independent Software Vendor) — a significant distinction that strengthens the close ties Talentsoft has established with Microsoft since 2007.

In August 2018, Talentsoft CEO Jean-Stéphane Arcis was invited to be part of the economic delegation in the French State visit to Denmark with President Emmanuel Macron.

Talentsoft was identified as a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites for the 5th consecutive time in September 2018. Talentsoft has achieved the highest and furthest overall position for its completeness of vision and ability to execute in the Visionary’s quadrant in the Gartner September 2018 Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites report.
