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.
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.
