Who Are We? 

In 2008, we identified a critical issue: enterprise tools were being implemented without proper onboarding, communication, or training.

Our mission since then has been to make digital tools accessible to everyone!


You've been in the same role for several years, with your routines and practices on tools you know inside out. However, one day, your manager informs you that starting tomorrow, you'll be using a new tool. How can you approach this change with enthusiasm? Unfortunately, without proper guidance, this is rarely the case.

That's why at Mandarine Academy, we are dedicated to making digital tools accessible to everyone. We ensure that every user has the ability to effectively use the digital tools introduced in their workplace.

Thus, we support our clients and their users, ensuring that every digital transformation project can achieve its objectives.

Our vision

Digital tools are a central driver of growth and profitability, continuously evolving. Ensuring that employees can quickly adapt to digital tools and their ever-changing nature is a crucial factor for enhancing business performance.

A 100% Made in France Solution

Our teams are based in Villeneuve d'Ascq, in the Hauts-de-France region. To better serve your needs, we manage the entire lifecycle of our solutions in-house, from inception to completion. From designing training prototypes to crafting courses, from developing the LMS tool to deploying content on training platforms, every step is executed by our dedicated teams. This approach grants us control over every facet of the solutions we provide, ensuring swift responses to any challenges that may arise and allowing us to meet your exacting standards.

Our history

Company Inception

Mandarine was born when Laurent Maurer founded it, originally named Mandarine Business School. This marked the inception of our journey, accompanied by the introduction of our proprietary logistics tool, Teachoip. Teachoip is an online application developed by Mandarine to efficiently manage and organize all training activities.

RDV Formation Inception

This offering provides web conference-based training in small groups with a maximum of 10 participants.

Capital Raise

We secured a one million euros investment from Croissance Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Bpifrance, and Picardie Investissement to accelerate our expansion in Europe and North America. This led to the creation of our MOOC Office 365 platform, which replaced our RDV formation offering. Our platform provides web conference-based training and 24/7 access to Microsoft 365 tool training videos.

Name change

Mandarine underwent a name change, becoming Mandarine Academy. This change aimed to establish a brand with a distinct visual identity, enhance our visibility and reputation, and position us as a key player in digital support. We introduced a packaged offering consisting of a dedicated training platform and support provided by our project managers.


Originally located in Roubaix, Mandarine Academy moved to Villeneuve d’Ascq to be closer to the technical hub and universities in the Lille metropolitan area.


DiLeaP inception. DiLeaP is a customizable training and support platform with a simple and fast setup. This platform is scalable through its management space accessible to all members of the change management team.


Creation of the "Ecoach" format, small group coaching sessions with an instructor.

Digital Illiteracy

Mandarine Academy is actively involved in the fight against digital illiteracy, a problem that has been revealed and exacerbated by the health crisis. Our training programs also adapt to new conditions, and we find ways to make them more participatory, especially through the use of Klaxoon. Our training logistics tool DiLeaP Logistic, which replaces Teachoip, undergoes changes to facilitate the organization of the many video conferences we conduct every day. Launch of knowledge certifications.

New Interface

Redesign of the interface of our training platform, especially with the launch of MARS: Mandarine Academy Recommend System, an intelligent content recommendation system developed in the context of our research collaboration with the University of Lille. Redesign of catalogs as well, to implement sequenced courses. Launch of our first serious game.

Name Change for MOOC Office 365

The MOOC Office 365 is now DiLeaP 365. We are expanding the subjects of our training content beyond Microsoft 365 tools, including content on cybersecurity and CSR. To reflect this change and show our users and clients the full potential of our product DiLeaP, our training platform is taking on this new name. This also marks the birth of DiLeaP for Teams, DiLeaP AI Tutor, the integration of OpenAI into our tool, and the first edition of our CSR training catalog.
