Research Projects

Software of a employee holding company

The project presented is in the field of social innovation which is based on concepts developed by the human and social sciences such as sociology, management and the theory of organizations.

This project was born in 2009, the result of an observation of inadequate solutions and practices in the field of job sustainability. Indeed, the constant reflections carried out by the CEO of Portage SI, Mr. Christian PERSON, resulted in the creation of an IT platform intended for the use of consultants.

The creation of a software package for a portage company is an innovative project and faced a societal challenge on many aspects not dealt with by the competition, and above all unknown at the launch of this research work.

The project is carried out by the Research and Development Pole of the company Portage SI (currently UMALIS Group).

1. Project objectives

The main objectives of Portage SI were:

  • the creation of a new societal strategy, adequate for employment growth and the development of skills among consultants
  • the creation of IT tools capable of assisting consultants in their acquisition of professional independence , this tool consists in particular of  an IT platform intended for the use of consultants.
  • Create a technological bridge making it possible to apply the fundamental principles of societal innovation to the issues of professional independence
  • Guarantee better employability of portage consultants.

2. Project phases

This project took place in three main phases:

  • The first phase  consisted in collecting scientific work, in order to establish the state of the art in the field of societal innovation;
  • The second phase  made it possible to subtract from this state of the art a set of innovative strategies, and to build detailed specifications for the application development of our approach;
  • The third phase  took up the specifications to transform them into specific IT tools to support consultants in wage portage.

3. Results

The creation of an original information system constitutes a societal innovation from the point of view of the human and social sciences.

The creation of this IT platform allowed

  • to  manage hundreds of consultants , without significant infrastructure changes,
  • for each consultant to  have an online virtual office  from where he can manage and administer his mission offers and pilot a project with other consultants themselves in wage portage
  • to create the embryo of a future IT consulting company. This is the case with Big Data Consulting.

According to the administration, only the design of new software, or one constituting a substantial improvement in relation to the available know-how of the profession, can be considered as  a research operation eligible for the research tax credit , insofar as this work provides a modification to existing software.

Our approach takes up the challenge of societal innovation. In addition, our  original tool has no commercial equivalent , and no similar solution exists among our competitors.

Virtual business creation incubator

The R&D work carried out during 2012 was mainly in the order of applied research but also experimental development with the creation of tailor-made solutions, intended for the use of consultants in wage portage.

This project, entitled: Virtual business creation incubator, aims to develop new relational economic models allowing the inclusion of populations today excluded from the labor market.

The management of the technological watch and R&D of this project is ensured by

  • Mr. Christian PERSON, CEO of Portage SI (currently UMALIS GROUP)
  • All of Umalis’ consultants, mostly IT and telecommunications engineers, with several years of experience

1. Project objectives

This project mainly aims to:

  • A permanent development of new tools and a continuous improvement of the quality of the support of the consultant entrepreneurs
  • Open this support to any project leader, thanks to  the IT platform accessible on the Internet,
  • Find new theorems and fundamental models of societal organization, particularly in the field of human and social sciences;
  • Create IT tools capable of supporting consultants in their acquisition of professional independence;
  • Create a technological bridge making it possible to apply the fundamental principles of societal innovation to the issues of professional independence;
  • Guarantee better employability of portage consultants.

2. Project phases

This project took place in three main phases:

  • The first phase  consisted in collecting scientific work, in order to establish the state of the art in the field of societal innovation;
  • The second phase  made it possible to subtract from this state of the art a set of innovative strategies, and to build detailed specifications for the application development of our approach;
  • The third phase  took up the specifications to transform them into specific IT tools to support consultants in wage portage.

3. Results

This project was designed and developed as a  virtual incubator  for independent consultants in wage portage

This platform has made it possible to  manage several hundred consultants , without noticeable infrastructure changes, which has enabled each consultant to have an  online virtual office  from where he can  manage and administer his mission offers and pilot a project with other consultants themselves in wage portage .

Beyond aspects of simple management and internal accounting, this platform has also enabled consultants to  create the embryo of a future IT consulting company . This is the case with Big Data Consulting.
