Our voices matter

Alida croit en un monde où les clients sont considérés comme la source de vérité la plus fiable. Tout savoir de ce qu'ils pensent (y compris les vérités les plus difficiles à entendre) peut en effet aider les entreprises à prendre de meilleures décisions, qui pourront soutenir leur croissance et favoriser la fidélisation des clients à long terme.

C'est pourquoi Alida a créé sa plateforme de Total Expérience Management ; une solution de gestion de l’expérience alimentée par une communauté de clients les plus engagés qui échangent en continu pour aider à développer l’entreprise durablement. Grâce à cela, les clients Alida bénéficient d'un meilleur accès à leurs clients, de meilleurs taux de réponse et des insights plus fiables obtenus plus rapidement qu’avec les méthodes traditionnelles d’étude.

Les valeurs d'Alida


Nous ne restons pas dans notre zone de confort et refusons de nous contenter de ce qui nous est familier.


Nous respectons les points de vues et les émotions que chaque individu a à offrir.

La curiosité

Nous sommes en quête de connaissances et de vérité. Nous ne cessons jamais de chercher à nous améliorer.


Nous ne cachons pas qui nous sommes ni ce que nous défendons. Nos différences nous donnent de la force.
