We knock on at least 20 doors a day

« A passion for canvassing »

Charlotte canvasses the city of Lyon for new clients all week long. "We knock on at least 20 doors a day", exclaims this employee who "enjoys having direct contact with clients". Her clients large and small appreciate this daily accessibility. They are all attached to a single centre and build special relationships "with us of course, but also with their delivery people and their account managers. This creates strong bonds in a family ambiance", she explains.

« Good work tools »

Behind the wheel of her company car, Charlotte "is never completely alone!" For the past five years, Business Development Representatives have been equipped with iPads (in addition to their business smartphones), that provide them with key information in real time to enable them to respond to new opportunities. This means that appointments made by Elis’s call centre can be honoured on the ground almost instantaneously. Lastly, although Charlotte reports that she flourishes by working independently, she also appreciates "the complete confidence" that her Regional Sales Manager has in her.
