Spring 2020 Newsletter



No matter the kind of winter we had, the arrival of spring always feels good. And this year is no exception.

We are very pleased to present the latest significant modifications to Octopus.

Thank you for taking the time to read our newsletter.



Teleworking is already part of  our corporate culture; in these times of vigilance, restrictions and confinement, we are 100% teleworking and 100% operational.

The means of communication remain the same.

We will keep you posted if the situation changes.
