Compilatio's story begins in 2005.
Since 2005, Compilatio has offered tools to help detect and prevent plagiarism. Frédéric Agnès, founder and CEO, attests to how issues related to plagiarism prevention and detection have evolved:
"Compilatio users were first attracted by the ability to track down cheaters by using software to detect similarities in texts. They are now increasingly interested in services that encourage the values of digital citizenship and integrity. They use similarity-detection software as a pedagogical tool, in addition to other resources to reinforce learning (guides, training, etc.)."
