Four Decades Of Technological Excellence And Leadership
Defining an Industry Leader:
While you may not realize it, our company name does have significant meaning. Sogeti was founded on October 1, 1967 by Serge Kampf, who recognized the need for technical support in the French market. Kampf wanted the company name to reflect the value of our services.
Sogeti, stands for “Société pour la Gestion de l’ Entreprise et le Traitement de l’ Information”, translates as “a company specializing in information management and processing.”
Our Past Defines Our Future:
Many clients also ask us about our logo. While it has transformed over the years, the red spade remains the symbol for our company. Why? The ace of spades is the highest card value in Bridge, a game that Kampf often played, and red was selected to represent the dynamic enthusiasm that he wanted in the company.
In addition to defining our brand, Kampf also defined our management principles which still lead our passion, commitment to excellence and business decisions today.
Entrepreneurial Culture — Thinking outside the box for innovative ideas
Decentralization — Ensuring autonomy to our employees in decision making and actions to encourage self-determination
Independence — Empowering our consultants by entrusting them to best represent Sogeti in all business transactions
Profitability — Offering unbeatable solutions of the highest quality, in order to grow financially
Cost Effective Business Model — Providing the best solutions to our clients while continuing to be affordable
Honesty — Sharing the truth to maintain the integrity of our name
Our Evolution to Today:
Sogeti incurred quite a few changes through the years. Through the process of acquiring numerous different businesses, we experienced a transforming evolution that distinguished the Sogeti of 1967 to the Sogeti that is today.
While Cap Gemini focused on the large scale global services market, it quickly recognized a market need for its founding mission: to provide local IT services. As a result, the Sogeti brand was re-launched with its traditional mission intact, to provide local IT support to businesses around the world.
Emphasizing this valuable business approach, Sogeti’s tagline is Local Touch—Global Reach, but it is much more than that, it’s our promise. At Sogeti we are able to provide you with the best of both worlds! With 25 offices in cities across the U.S., we are located around the corner to provide you with tailored solutions to meet your business needs.
