Hervé Simonin: “I was seduced by Klaxoon and its innovative technology. In the world of technology, Klaxoon distinguished itself by its meteoric rise amongst the largest international players in collaborative solutions. Today, Klaxoon has become a reference for new ways of working. Its technology is used by all of the CAC 40 players and companies of all sizes around the world.

Klaxoon is now debuting a brand new generation platform with additional features in 2023, as well as the ability to integrate its technology with other professional applications. Klaxoon, for example, can now accelerate the prioritization and problem-solving phases when linked with JIRA (an American reference software for project management). This unparalleled level of interoperability has been lauded by project management teams, with Airbus, La Poste, and the National Bank of Canada all recently purchasing this program.
