IN Groupe, The right to be you

Tessi and the Imprimerie Nationale have founded SAKARAH

Today, groups Tessi and Imprimerie Nationale have announced the signature of a partnership agreement focusing on dematerialization activities.

The partnership was established by the creation of a company: SAKARAH. TESSI will own 80% of the capital and the Imprimerie Nationale will own the remaining 20%.

SAKARAH will rely on the existing electronic document exchange platform « Sakarah » created by the Imprimerie Nationale, and on both groups' synergies (both being leading players on the market of digitized and secure flow management).

SAKARAH aims to establish itself as the undisputed national leader in secure dematerialization.

Under the brand name INFACTO, the Imprimerie Nationale Group will be SAKARAH's reference operator for all business dealings with public institutions, government agencies, local and territorial authorities. « The dematerialization of document processes is a priority for government administration and the Imprimerie Nationale is there to guide them » explains Didier Trutt, CEO of the Imprimerie Nationale Group. Both Groups are also studying the implementation of other synergies related to the industrial processing of incoming and outgoing mails and the processing of sensitive flows, such as secure enterprise output management, digitization, archiving and proof management.
