Our origins

125 years of expertise in enterprise data

As a French precursor of business information, Ellisphere has a hundred years of expertise in the collection and management of BtoB data in France and abroad. It supports the evolution of the BtoB information business with both companies and public authorities.

The history of Ellisphere was marked in 2006 by the creation of Coface Services, a merger of the two main French players in the business information and receivables management market (ORT and SCRL).

In 2011, Coface Services becomes a direct subsidiary of Natixis. In 2014, it took the name of Ellisphere, the final stage of a new autonomy and a new dynamic focused on BtoB information, driven by a constantly changing economic and regulatory context. Since 2019, Ellisphere's shareholders are its management, as well as Bpifrance, Tikehau Capital and Andera Partners.

In 2021, Ellisphere, via its holding company Arthemis, has carried out an external growth operation by acquiring the company Infotrade, which publishes Sparklane solutions. With this acquisition, Ellisphere consolidates its position in the marketing solutions market, one of its three strategic businesses.
