Hesplora > Partnership

The business model adopted by HESPLORA is unique in Italy and very innovative; only a few companies can be assimilated to HESPLORA, and usually they are a division of a big consultancy company, worldwide (like Accenture or Deloitte) or Italian companies (like Replay or BIP). But compared with other consultancy companies, HESPLORA has a very agile structure because its main force is its collaboration with a wider partner network; in addition, HESPLORA’s consultants have an exceptional technology knowhow and a solid background in innovative projects managing. Finally, the main difference between HESPLORA and its competitors is its ability to integrate cutting-edge scientific research with innovative projects focused on specific business needs.
