2022: acceleration of international growth, organic and external

Among the main highlights of the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022, Hardis Group emphasizes:

  • Strong growth in its Reflex logistics software publishing business: an increase of 16% overall and 46% internationally, for its subsidiaries located in the Netherlands, Spain and Poland.
  • A 67% ramp-up in its activity focused on integrating Salesforce and Workplace from Meta in France; the European dynamic kicked off with the acquisition of Cloudity at the end of 2022.
  • A 10% increase in its IT services and consulting activities.

"The growth across all our activities far exceeds that of the IT market, estimated by Numeum at 7.5% for 2022," emphasizes Yvan Coutaz, Managing Director of Hardis Group.

"Our clients' trust is at the heart of our development," adds Nicolas Odet, President of Hardis Group. "We are therefore signing more and more cross-activity projects: consulting, integration of business or technological solutions, move to cloud, Reflex, etc."

Highlights of 2022

  • January 2022: signing of a partnership with A2B Solutions, which offers consulting and integration services around the Reflex software suite in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland.
  • March 2022: acquisition of Carrenet, a Salesforce integrator based in the Paris region.
  • November 2022: acquisition of Cloudity, a Salesforce integrator based in Poland, also present in the DACH region and the Scandinavian countries. All the teams dedicated to Salesforce integration are now grouped together in a new structure, operating under the Cloudity brand.

In terms of extra-financial aspects, 2022 was an opportunity for Hardis Group to increase its CSR initiatives, in order to: reduce the environmental footprint of its business and its clients' businesses, strengthen diversity and equal opportunities, and promote inclusion through education. Examples include calculation of a France-wide carbon footprint, organization of Fresque du climat workshops, creation of a sustainable digital practice, recruitment of more women into the workforce, employment of people with disabilities, and partnerships with École 42 Lyon, Simplon and the DesCodeuses association.

2023: continuation of international development 

For 2023, Hardis Group expects its turnover to grow by 22% and pass the 190 million euro mark. The development of its business looks set to be driven by the signing of international projects and by synergies between its activities (consulting, data, commerce, logistics and cloud), both in France and internationally, with major accounts and mid-sized companies. "We are continuing our initiatives to strengthen our presence in Europe, both organically and through external growth, and we are increasing our capacity to support the development of our clients in the United States and Asia, particularly with our integrator partners," says Nicolas Odet.

The first highlights of 2023 

  • March 2023: acquisition of Sislog, a Spanish publisher of warehouse management software (WMS). Hardis Group Iberia now has 75 employees and is taking the lead in the Iberian WMS market.
  • March 2023: new SaaS distribution of Reflex available on Google Cloud. Launch of a new solution, called Reflex Visibility, to support the implementation of a collaborative and unified Supply Chain, real-time visibility and orchestration of logistics operations.

To achieve these goals, Hardis Group will continue to invest in attracting new talent and building employee loyalty. "In 2022, we organized 5,200 training sessions, an increase of 15% compared to 2021. We are going to continue this approach in order to boost the skills of our employees, in terms of both their know-how and their interpersonal skills," explains Yvan Coutaz. The company plans to swell its ranks in 2023 with 360 new employees, in France and in its subsidiaries in other countries.

As regards CSR policy, in addition to the in-house initiatives carried out (equal opportunities, inclusion of people with disabilities, responsible digital technology, etc.), Hardis Group will gradually integrate this approach into its offerings, and into its method of service delivery to clients.
