Ackomas, a French company that specialises in publishing SaaS solutions for medical devices, is strengthening its leading position by welcoming Stéphane Ancel as Sales Director. He will be responsible for accelerating growth in the SME, mid-cap and key account segments in the MD industry. This sector is facing growing pressure with the implementation of Regulation (EU) 2017/745 and new regulatory requirements to be met to receive marketing authorisation.
“Amid significant changes in regulations, the ability to consolidate and share product lifecycle data has become a key strategic factor for health industry manufacturers. The KOA solution developed by ACKOMAS provides a targeted, gradual response to these issues. My goal is to promote Ackomas products and services among manufacturers of healthcare products and demonstrate the added value they provide for organisations,” said Stéphane Ancel.
After managing healthcare institutions, Stéphane Ancel worked for HELVEPIA, a key provider of listing, purchasing and consulting services for healthcare institutions, where he held various roles oven seven years. After that, he joined Mutualité Française, where he was responsible for group purchasing for mutual clinics, then expanded his expertise into the medico-social sector with the founding of Groupement d’Achats Mutualiste, which he managed for eight years. His firm belief in the potential benefits of EDI for health product procurement brought him to @GP, a publisher specialised in this sector, where he expanded the health business over a period of four years.
“With twenty years of experience managing, planning and implementing business strategies and extensive expertise in the healthcare and medical device industries, Stéphane Ancel brings a wealth of key knowledge and expertise to drive our growth strategy and enhance our collaborations with existing and future customers,” said Christophe Devins, Ackomas founder and CEO.
