Created back in 2008 in the face of a tense economic climate and within a market dominated by firmly established leading companies, Keepeek surprised us all with a confident attitude paired with its progressive ergonomic DAM tool. Let’s take a look at some of the key moments of the story so far…
Driven by an ambition to become one of the not-to-be missed leading references on the DAM market, Keepeek quickly positioned itself as a pioneer of the sector and successfully launched the first DAM SAAS platform in December 2009. The following year, the Ministère de la Recherche (government minister for research) publically recognized the innovative Keepeek with a national Jeune Entreprise Innovante (‘Young Innovative Company’) award.
In 2010, Keepeek opened a project think-tank. Beyond its status as a technological company, Keepeek quickly became known for the projects it had started developing alongside DAM. Throughout this 12 month period alone, the company recruited a further 100 clients.
In 2011, with a total of 10 employees, Keepeek looked to more flexible ways of structuring teamwork within the company. Through the implementation of ‘SCRUM’ technology, the particular needs and requests of each of its clients was now able to be managed more fluidly and with greater ease. Delivery deadlines became shorter and the company found itself in a position to be able to guarantee delivery times. Keepeek soon found itself reaping the benefits of its level of expertise and started to win tenders with some big names in leading sectors and industries e.g. Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, De Dietrich, Mattel, Airbus, etc.
In 2013, Keepeek outgrew its premises and relocated to the 3rd district of Paris, on the Rue Commines. In tandem with this move, Keepeek also opened its first agency in Rennes. The reason behind establishing an office in Brittany, was to further develop its R&D projects and to recruit new talent from the high-caliber universities of this famous Breton city. The development strategy allowed Keepeek to double its number of employees and reach a total of more than 200 clients.
In 2014, Keepeek evolved further still and implemented the Kanban method into its flexible management system. This method allows our clients to benefit from an ever greater level of flexibility and a quicker response time. An updated version is now published on a monthly basis.
In 2015, Keepeek was listed among the top 20 leading DAM Capterra publishers. Following its incredible success, Keepeek has taken the decision to extend yet again with the opening of a second premises in Paris.
This seventh year has undeniably marked a coming of age for Keepeek.
Keepeek has become a highly responsible technological company which can boast the fact that it hosts vital data for a number of CAC 40 companies. From within its lists of companies, Keepeek has witnessed the birth of more and more international briefs – for example, in July 2015 a project for Polish users was initiated.
Flourishing from these first few years of success, Keepeek will now continue to heavily invest in its R&D and commercial strategies. The overriding ambition is to reach a size which will allow it to take Europe and the International market head on.
