With more than 30 years of experience in claims management, Stelliant Group provides companies and insurance professionals with a range of services dedicated to consulting and prevention.
Central to Stelliant's ethos is its adaptability to evolving market trends, a culture of innovation, and a steadfast dedication to providing top-tier service to not only its customers but also its valued staff members.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is part of the Group's raison d'être as a natural component of their strategy and company culture.
In 2020, Stelliant needed to renew over 1000 of its employees' smartphones.
True to Stelliant’s commitment to contributing to the ecological transition and promoting responsible choices, Sheinoor Thuillier, General Counsel of the Stelliant Group and part of the DAF (administrative and financial department) team reached out to BNP Paribas 3 Step IT to look into more sustainable ways to deliver the project.
As part of the collaboration, Stelliant was able to finance 1,200 state-of-the-art smartphones and onboard them to BNP Paribas 3 Step IT’s circular Technology Lifecycle Management services, ensuring the devices would have the best possible chance of a second life after the leasing period.
The project involved identifying and deploying smartphones across Stelliant’s 12 subsidiaries, requiring outstanding asset management capabilities to ensure control and monitoring of new devices regularly added to the fleet. As part of the collaboration, BNP Paribas 3 Step IT’s Asset Management platform also enabled Stelliant to have more visibility on the lifecycle of every device to plan and budget for replacement cycles easily and automatically.
According to Stelliant, “It was fantastic to be able to count on an expert partner like BNP Paribas 3 Step IT when looking into upgrading our large device fleet following circularity principles. BNP Paribas 3 Step IT supported us through the entire process, helping us finance the devices and manage the lifecycle of all the assets across the Group.”
Since the launch of the project, Stelliant has been able to simplify device acquisition and management, improve the employee experience, increase staff productivity, and decrease the cost and the complexity normally associated with device acquisition cycles. All while adopting circularity principles and managing their technology more securely and sustainably.
Following the successful deployment of the smartphones, Stelliant decided to expand the project to include charging stations for its electrical vehicle (EV) fleet, which represents the vast majority of cars provided by Stelliant to its employees.
To help employees access EVs with fewer restrictions, Stelliant worked with BNP Paribas 3 Step IT to finance charging stations at employees’ homes, making adoption easier and more cost-effective - resulting in wide adoption by Stelliant staff.
