Two hundred co-operatives throughout France are co-operating through a pooling tool developed by the French Federation of Co-operative and Participative Enterprises in the communication sector (Communication SCOP).
MADEinSCOP is a business platform (“multi channel hub”) which allows SCOP to present a shared offer on the communication market. Thus introducing themselves as an organized network of 200 Co-operative and Participative Enterprises, Communication SCOP give themselves the tools to reach new kinds of clients that they wouldn’t be able to interest alone.
With a single point of contact, MADEinSCOP acts as a facilitator for the head of communication departments, contributing to responsible purchase. Working with MADEinSCOP people are guaranteed to work only with co-operatives who have an ethical way of doing their job and territorial anchorage.
This initiative aims for several goals:
- Propose a global communication offer from conception to the final work, for any kind of media: print, web, audiovisual, event, smartphone…
- Answer to a real and powerful demand for sustainable purchase from the communication department which are more and more concerned about environmental and social benefits of the products beyond the price.
- Advise and support co-operatives in their adaptation to the market, which evolves from a job organization to a “silo” organization, able to answer to the new needs of communicating on different media.
- Give the co-operatives an easy and fast solution which allows them to consult other co-operatives in order to develop their business.
The governance is ensured by the communication co-operatives director’s. Our organization is fluid and clear: all services are realized only by SCOP, systematic consultation of all the SCOP corresponding with the client brief, information about the criteria for the choice of the service provider, clear economical model visible on our website.
You give us your needs; we make a consultation in our network composed of 200 communication SCOP, the SCOP answer to the consultation, then MADEinSCOP selects for you the best proposals and you decide the one you work with. We sign the contract together and MADEinSCOP ensures their coordinator role with the SCOP until the contract is done, simple.
In this network of co-operative enterprises, some are over 100 years old, whereas other are very new, one thing is certain: you will find the skills, the equipment and the style which match your needs.
The future of European states implies a “citizen” motivation in the act of buying. This is generating decisive social and environmental consequences for the future of the planet and the well-being of people. MADEinSCOP wants to make a simple and competitive offer to companies which carry on citizen values, such as: sharing power, effort and results, intern democracy, and elected director.
