Successful Tech Stories

Concerned about its social responsibilities towards its employees, its shareholders, its customers and its partners and in order to support government measures, while addressing the obligations of a listed company, the Claranova group has put in place strong protective measures concerning COVID-19.

In this context, I would like to assure you that all of our teams are mobilized to secure the continuity of our missions at your service. We are implementing everything we can to ensure that you do not have to suffer the difficulties that today impact certain economic activities. Because our sector is digital, we benefit from a privileged situation.

But far more than these economic aspects and in a spirit of global solidarity, your health remains our priority. Take care of yourself and your families. The Claranova family is more than ever united and supportive in this exceptional situation.
