The secure web-based platform for document exchange (based on Sharepoint), developed by Benkei, , is made available to its clients.
Benkei supports its clients in the implementation of French indirect financing schemes such as the CIR / CII / CICO. Benkei favors an ongoing approach that enables to question the project eligibility and related expenditures throughout the fiscal year. Such established collaboration allows us to identify the overall uncertainties of the projects and assess how the R&D work undertaken during the year provides solutions to these uncertainties. Ad-hoc support can be provided on demand, to identify the relevant state of the art. Thanks to this customer-oriented approach, the cost calculation and the supporting documents can be prepared earlier and more efficiently.
