Case Study Ceméa
Ceméa rely on Axelor’s Low-code platform to succeed in their digital transformation

Ceméa is a movement of people committed to the values and principles of the New Education and active education methods. They are fully dedicated to transforming environments and institutions by putting individuals into action. Ceméa has chosen a privileged tool for those ideas to be shared with the largest part of the people : training programs.
Functioning as a federation, Ceméa has a national association, called “head of the network”, which mission is to encourage the implementation of Ceméa’s orientations. It develops and capitalizes both on pedagogical methods and also supports the production and distribution of training tools and publications. It certifies the good quality of the training. It accompanies and stimulates innovative actions and implements national and international partnerships.
More than twenty regional structures are therefore in interrelation with each other and the national team, they lead a movement of educational actors. They are the interlocutors of regional partners for both any request and offer of training or educational or social support. They design and conduct every local activity of direct animation and training programs, they also provide a service placement for their trainees and managing organizations. They develop experiments and action-research in all territories.
Ceméa initiated their digital transformation so they had an audit conducted on their IT, willing to modernize. The need to acquire an ERP capable of managing all the activities of the “federation” clearly emerged.
Each of the 25 associations managed their clients independently. However, it was common for someone to start a training course in Marseille to continue it some time later in Paris. The systems in place at this time weren’t effective enough since there was no sharing within a common database.
Ceméa’s e-commerce activity became more and more important within the network, so the additional need emerged to integrate other systems, through web-services, APIs, etc…
It was therefore urgent to have a scalable, high-performance ERP tool, particularly reliable in the training sector and that could manage every Ceméa’s activity throughout France, both locally and nationally.
Once Axelor’s Low-code solution was chosen, Ceméa gathered a community of users and administrative staff with an Axelor Project Manager. During this meeting, this committee will determine the processes to be set up. They finally formalize them in order to launch the production.
Once the solution was established, Ceméa decided to test the solution in real conditions on a small territory. The Besançon agency will test the solution with its two key users. Once the Axelor solution is integrated and used on a daily basis, Ceméa will deploy the solution territory by territory, to achieve a nationwide deployment.
Axelor will help Ceméa in training 400 employees on the new software throughout mainland and overseas France.
The buy-in is complete from the users, who have completely appropriated the tool, since 350 of the 400 employees use Axelor on a daily basis, for issuing invoices and managing their clients’ files. The use of Axelor allows Ceméa to follow up on training courses, regardless of the territories where the courses were taken.
Ceméa is working on the integration of an HR module to the Axelor solution, which will be followed very quickly by the addition of the CRM module and web services.
