Rachid Kidai,

Assistant IT Director


Before migrating to BlueMind, we used Lotus Domino, an expensive solution with no functional advantages over the competition.

We chose BlueMind very early on, with pre-version 1. This was a high-risk decision, but it paid off.



BlueMind has allowed us to give our users a set of new, reliable and innovative collaboration tools.

The interconnection with our portal agent turned out to be easy and gives us an email system that is connected to our information system.

Since BlueMind version 1, updating has been effortless thanks to the software’s high industrialization.



Today, our IT department is no longer disrupted by malfunctions or feature requests, which helps us stay focused on the business aspect of IT in a local government organization.
