Marine Juillard - 26-juin-2014 18:18:24
London (UK) — Numberly, a digital-data marketing firm specialising in helping advertisers leverage their marketing strategies, and Albatross Global Solutions, a market-research firm specialising in improving retail performance and understanding consumer trends in the luxury sector, have teamed up to study the behaviour and expectations of today’s consumer of luxury goods. Their latest, exclusive study will be unveiled at a joint event in central London on 3 July 2014.  The work conducted by numberly, together with Albatross Global Solutions, has made it possible to measure how consumers of luxury goods engage in the luxury experience, both at boutiques and online. On Thursday 3 July 2014, on the occasion of a business breakfast meeting held in London, Albatross Global Solutions and numberly will reveal the results of the latest study they have conducted: The Journey of a Luxury Consumer — Expectations and behaviour of clients of luxury brands around the world. This will give Albatross and numberly the opportunity to unveil their yearly forecasts for the luxury sector. The event in London will start at 8.30am and will be held at the May Fair Hotel, in central London (Stratton Street, W1J 8LT). Representatives from a range of luxury brands will be present, including Bell & Ross, Bottega Veneta, Boucheron, Cartier, Christofle, Erès, Kering, Lacoste, Ladurée, L’Oréal Luxe, and Tod’s. Journalists wishing to attend the London event should contact the Press Office of the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK no later than 1 July 2014. In September 2013, numberly, in partnership with Albatross, held a similar event in New York City (USA): the two companies unveiled their first report of its kind into the behaviour and the expectations of luxury-sector consumers. Each study has been conducted to high standards, with a survey polling 3,290 relevant consumers, i.e. individuals who have purchased a luxury product in the six months prior to the study. The consumers polled came from North America (USA), Latin America (Brazil), the Far East (China and Japan), and Europe (various EU countries). Consumers were asked about their expectations, their choices, their experience, their level of satisfaction, and their online behaviour when buying a luxury product. Christophe Caïs, Albatross founder, explains: “Albatross and numberly have a shared passion to increase the sales of our clients through results that will empower the brands to tailor strategies, advertising and training to reach the affluent consumer.” Dorothée Lacroix, numberly UK Director, adds: “Even if the store remains the main channel for luxury brands, the brand websites are gaining prominence. We want to help global luxury brands to optimise their online advertising strategies with relevant solutions for their international customers.”   About Albatross Global Solutions Albatross Global Solutions is a leading market-research firm specialising in improving retail performance and understanding consumer trends in the luxury-goods sector.

YOU DON’T NEED A CRM launches Smart Prospect Lists

Marine - 25-juin-2014 11:25:13
YOU DON’T NEED A CRM, a company specialising in CRM solutions tailored to the needs of microenterprises and SMEs’ sales forces, has announced the launch of its innovative Smart Prospect Lists — a spreadsheet that is packaged with a business-development management tool in SaaS mode, thus making it possible to reconcile cold calling with the management of prospective contacts. The company, which already sells its solutions to businesses across Britain, is opening a London office.   Sunny Paris, CEO of YOU DON’T NEED A CRM, explains: “Having a physical presence in the United Kingdom and, particularly, in London, is of crucial importance for our development. Not only are UK businesses very well connected and responsive to the type of service that we are offering, but London, through its dynamism and the diversity of its inhabitants, is an essential base for reaching out internationally.”   YOU DON’T NEED A CRM already has clients in over 20 countries around the world, including Britain. Opening a London office will help the company grow across the UK and internationally. Neil Thomson, Commercial Manager of 2020 SolarPV ( www.2020heating.com ), a British company that markets and installs solar panels, says, “We need to follow up our leads until they either become a customer or are lost, and YOU DON’T NEED A CRM does that job very well. Input of new leads is simple and flexible. Recording follow-up calls is easy. And setting up a reminder for the next call is quick. Every day, we can look at the list of ‘Next Actions’ and make the appropriate calls. YOU DON’T NEED A CRM helps us to keep on top of our sales process in a simple manner, without having to labour under the weight of a complex CRM [system].” Sebastien Blanc, General Manager at Struq ( www.struq.com ), a leading UK-based technology company delivering performance advertising to major retailers worldwide, says, "We tried a lot of CRM solutions: most failed because they are hard to use and are a burden for sales representatives. We love You Don’t Need a CRM because it actually helps sales people do their job: they use the stand-by feature to be reminded of next steps, data is up to date and, as a result, sales leaders have accurate information about what’s going on. It is very easy to use and has a great User Interface. I definitely recommend this tool for any sales team in need of an efficient pipe-management tool.” Far too often, microenterprises and SME salespeople are forced to navigate between several tools in order to manage their business-development work. Typically, these tools will include a spreadsheet with limited features for the contacts files (which members of the sales force use in their cold calling), on the one hand, and a classic CRM tool, often complex and expensive, to manage opportunities (once the initial contact person turns into a genuine prospect and the business need has been properly identified), on the other. “With the launch of the Smart Prospect Lists, it becomes possible for sales people to benefit from the best of both worlds!” explains Sunny Paris, CEO of YOU DON’T NEED A CRM. “With our technology, an online spreadsheet is integrated directly into the YOU DON’T NEED A CRM application, which makes it possible to import lists of contacts or development files and to work without changing your practices. This makes your life easier and far more productive!” Smart Prospect Lists is a tool that helps manage one’s contacts, from cold calling through to the management of prospective leads. Salespeople can thus carry out their cold calling (or emailing), amend their files, and transform — at the click of a mouse — a contact into an opportunity, when the person contacted has shown signs of interest. A crucial advantage is that all the data relating to the prospect (i.e. the prospect’s attributes) are correctly defined in the system, and in real time. Once the prospect has been transformed into an opportunity, the salesperson benefits from all the effectiveness of the YOU DON’T NEED A CRM platform, which will help him (or her) to finalise the sale. The platform features an integrated management tool for To-Do tasks; full synchronisation with the schedule in order to manage follow-ups; a comprehensive history of information exchanges; an activity-flow monitoring functionality; and, finally, detailed statistics, among other functionalities. About YOU DON’T NEED A CRM Launched at the end of 2013 and headquartered in Paris (France), YOU DON’T NEED A CRM is a company that specialises in business-development management solutions in SaaS mode that are specially tailored to the needs of microenterprises and SMEs. Following the company’s commercial success and its fast growth since its launch, YOU DON’T NEED A CRM has decided to open an office in London (UK), which will assist the business in its development across Britain and in other export markets worldwide. The YOU DON’T NEED A CRM solution is already sold to clients in over 20 countries around the world, including the UK.

France’s difference when it comes to Intelligent Transportation Systems

Aurore Bernard - 12-juin-2014 10:44:18
The trend, across cities around the world, is for ever-higher densities in urban population. Benoît Perino, UBIFRANCE’s expert on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSs), says that, once a city reaches a critical size (i.e. a population density of up to 20,000 people per square kilometre), urban mobility becomes a paramount issue. Public-sector authorities need to solve such issues as to how to manage road traffic flows, give commuters up-to-the-minute information, and run efficient back-office payment systems to make these essential services financially viable.  High tech makes a difference, and France has been a precursor in ITS technology for over 40 years now, designing and building ‘the future is now’ solutions. The ITS market in France is worth €4.5 billion overall, generating 45,000 jobs. Naturally, Paris is the premier showcase, although every major French city displays impressive achievements in urban transportation. In Paris, the métro is being automated and ‘traditional’ tickets are on their way out, being replaced by dematerialized Near Field Electronic paid-entry systems such as Navigo that whisk passengers through the turnstiles. Navigo will soon to be deployed across Thalys services — the bullet train serving the high-speed line between Paris and Brussels. One of the key players behind these ultra-efficient, yet complex, ticketing solutions is ERG Transit Systems SA — a specialist company capable of designing ITS ticketing systems for target groups of users ranging from 10,000 to 10 million passengers a day, in cities such as Hong Kong, Melbourne, Rome, Singapore, and maybe San Francisco soon. Managing environmental impact and highway safety is a prime concern, and French technology has met another ITS challenge on its highways (the country’s autoroutes), providing traffic reports and free-flow tollbooth collection (or ETC, for Electronic Tolling Collection). This complex mix of infrastructure and back-office consolidation of on-line toll collection works now in the United States, while respecting each individual state’s strenuous and complicated guidelines for toll-collection management, yet still designing a reliable, interoperable system that makes financial sense. Systems have also been designed to identify licence plates on trucks in order to apply the eco-tax, as the vehicles pass under electronic sensory equipment. Obviously, a variant of this multi-mode system is equipment that checks for vehicles exceeding the speed limit, combined with the processing of massive volumes of data in order to properly assess fines. French players have developed solutions that are environmentally and user friendly. Autolib, introduced by Blue Solutions, Bolloré SA’s subsidiary, has put up to 1,800 electric cars on the streets of Paris and its region (with 59 suburbs of the French capital included in the scheme) – an environmentally friendly initiative soon to be launched in Indianapolis (USA), where the scheme will be known as Speedy Car. Any visitor to Paris has seen, or perhaps even used, Vélib’ bikes to get around. The Vélib’ scheme, launched and managed by JC Decaux SA in 2007, maintains a fleet of 17,000 bicycles used by an average of 85,810 riders every day and extends to over 30 suburbs. The running of the Vélib’ scheme requires real-time back-office management software and a convenient, yet secure payment system — always the prime ingredients for a successful ITS. What about the role of UBIFRANCE, France’s export-support agency? UBIFRANCE interacts with the key players in the sector, such ATEC ITS France ( www.atec-itsfrance.net ), a professional association that brings all the ITS industry together in order to shape the public debate and lobby in favour of future land-based transportation projects. Another important player is TOPOS, an association that is particularly active in the south-west of France ( www.topos-aquitaine.org ) and has a special interest in developing geo-localization in the transportation field. In fact, a highlight with an international dimension for the entire sector will be the World Congress for ITS in Bordeaux (in south-western France), to be held from 5 to 9 October 2014. As Benoît Perino of UBIFRANCE sees it, “There is a high potential for ITS in France and internationally. There are a lot of French SMEs with great, highly advanced technologies. Our role at UBIFRANCE is to accompany them, so that they can meet local operators and authorities throughout the world and have their technology integrated into turnkey projects.”  

UBIFRANCE showcases over 100 French leaders in rail at InnoTrans 2014

Aurore Bernard - 22-mai-2014 17:51:43
UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, will present an array of leading companies at the InnoTrans trade show, in Berlin (Germany), from 23 to 26 September 2014. More than 100 French companies will be exhibiting on the 1,200m² French Pavilion (Halls 26b, 11.2, and 3.2). This pavilion will be held in partnership with Fer de France, and co-sponsored by CENTRALP, SCOMA, and Leroy Automation. A further 80 companies will be exhibiting on individual stands at the trade show.   InnoTrans, now in its 10th year, is the leading international trade show for the railway industry and, more particularly, for technology and engineering in the rail sector. The trade fair is an excellent platform to promote leading French companies in the sector and will take place between 23 and 26 September of this year in the German capital.   In 2014, the number of exhibitors on the French Pavilion will represent an 11% increase on 2013. The 1,200m² French Pavilion (Halls 26b, 11.2, and 3.2) will be sponsored by Fer de France, the Inter-professional Association for France’s railway industry, as well as three of the exhibitors on the pavilion — CENTRALP, a specialist in embedded software and electronics; SCOMA, a designer and manufacturer of safety parts; and, finally, Leroy Automation, an expert in rail automation.   Fer de France was founded in 2012 with the aim of uniting all public- and private-sector players across the rail industry in France, from engineering companies, industrialists and rail-infrastructure managers to planning agencies, passenger/ freight carriers, and institutional bodies. Members of Fer de France include Alstom, Eurotunnel, the French Transport Ministry and SNCF, France’s national state-owned railway company.   Fer de France’s turnover is estimated at over €30 billion, which sustains more than 340,000 jobs. Since 24 September 2013, Fer de France has been chaired by Pierre Mongin, who is also Chairman and Managing Director of RATP, the operator for urban-transport services across Paris and its region.   Seven regions of France will be represented on the French Pavilion at InnoTrans — Alsace, Burgundy, the Centre region, Midi-Pyrénées, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Pays de la Loire, and Picardy — together with the Alsace Chamber of Commerce & Industry (CCI), the Burgundy CCI and the Promotional Agency for the Centre region. Representatives of several high-tech clusters of excellence, including Northern France Rail, Neopolia Rail, Mecateam Cluster and Mipyrail, will also be present.   The equipment displayed on the French Pavilion will cover all categories in the sector: car layout, infrastructure, on-board embedded-electronics systems, technologies and solutions for passenger information and ticketing, public-transport companies, rail testing and engineering, rolling-stock units, and mechanical components for rolling-stock.   Thanks to its proven expertise and the ability to innovate of French sector players, France’s rail industry is widely acknowledged internationally. In Europe, the French railway sector ranks second only to Germany, with 1,500 businesses and a turnover in excess of €4 billion, one quarter of which comes from exports.   Developed in partnership with Fer de France, the www.french-rail-industry.com English-language website is a promotional portal covering every aspect of the French rail sector and listing the major events that member entities are due to attend over the course of the year.   A specific InnoTrans tab leads to the list of exhibitors on the French Pavilion, at the trade fair, complete with the precise location of their stands. The website also features a showcase of French players in the sector, which includes useful information for non-French buyers about each company as well as a dedicated contact section, making it easy to get in touch with the companies directly.   About UBIFRANCE   UBIFRANCE is the French export-support agency. As the partner of reference for French-based companies wishing to export, UBIFRANCE offers a complete range of services based on the provision of information on export markets, legal issues and regulations, as well as international finance and tenders, while also supplying sectorial data.   In addition, UBIFRANCE offers export advice and targeted support to companies’ commercial activities, such as exploratory visits, partnership meetings, foreign exhibitions and international press communications.

France’s 400 specialist companies are among world leaders in oil and gas

Aurore Bernard - 16-mai-2014 11:02:31
There is Total and, then, there are the others: that is how some people underestimate the oil-and-gas sector in France. In actual fact, the French landscape for this sector is far richer than that: “What people need to know is that the French offer is positioned among the [industry] leaders worldwide,” explains Agnès Hagyak, Project Manager for Hydrocarbons at UBIFRANCE head office, in Paris. France’s para-petroleum sector includes over 400 enterprises and creates 55,000 jobs that are “highly qualified at the technical and scientific level,” points out Agnès Hagyak.   In terms of exports, France even has the second largest para-petroleum sector in the world, behind the USA, at N° 1. France equals Norway and the UK in this respect. Overall, 90% of French suppliers’ combined turnover in the oil-and-gas industry comes from exports.   Total and GDF Suez, among other major players in the world, naturally draw a lot of attention. And y et, there are also many French-based companies that are not as well known, which deliver high-performance products and services internationally. As pointed out by Agnès Hagyak, Project Manager for Hydrocarbons in the Paris head office of French export-support agency UBIFRANCE, “France’s para-petroleum sector includes over 400 enterprises and creates 55,000 jobs that are highly qualified at the technical and scientific level.”   Many of the companies in the sector are SMEs that boast a very high level of technical expertise . These companies are a hotbed of creativity. When it comes to meeting industry needs in relation to technologies, equipment and services that are required for exploring, producing, transporting and refining hydrocarbons, French expertise is undisputed.   French know-how is especially recognized in the area of offshore- and deep-water drilling — and, specifically, for any type of technical platform sited in the high seas. French companies in the sector, which are thoroughly international, can easily position themselves in very specific niche markets: they are not at all afraid of customizing their solutions — quite the opposite, in fact.   For example, there is Bardot Group, an SME with an international presence, specialized in para-petroleum equipment. In particular, it provides tooling solutions with technical polymers and structures that are soldered by robotic equipment, along with the development of the means to attach and assemble these structures. With such expertise in a niche market, Bardot Group has had the opportunity to work on sites in Angola, the USA (Texas), Brazil and Malaysia. And Bardot Group is hardly the only French-based company of its kind that has proved capable of such export-led success.   Other examples include Nexans, which is a specialist in the manufacturing of cables required by the sector. An expert in electrical engineering (automated solutions, instrumentation and command systems), CEGELEC works very successfully on international projects. There are still other players in the market: Air Liquide, Bureau Veritas, Entrepose Projets and Ponticelli, among many others, are all renowned specialist companies that deliver innovative solutions in the oil-and-gas industry.   ▪ For further information, please contact Ms Agnès Hagyak, Project Manager for Hydrocarbons at UBIFRANCE Paris, on agnes.hagyak@ubifrance.fr

French know-how in agro-tech among the very best in the world

Aurore Bernard - 16-mai-2014 10:53:52
With the mechanization of farming and other advances in technology, France has demonstrated its know-how in developing high-performance agro-technology solutions worldwide.   France is the second largest importer and the fifth biggest exporter, in international markets, when it comes to farming-industry technologies, which ranks the country as one of the major players in the sector, with 9% market share worldwide.   “French companies are recognized and quite present internationally,” explains Tatiana Miron, Export Advisor for the Agriculture & Food sector at UBIFRANCE in Paris.   France has 230 companies that export farming equipment. Most of them are SMEs (60 % of the total). Among them are companies such as Grégoire Besson, Kuhn, Exel Industries and Manitou.   “Overall, 70 % of French production in farming equipment is exported,” points out Tatiana Miron.   When the exporting company is French-based, experience shows that there is a lot of goodwill among locally based farmers and other businesses. For example, in South Africa, exports of French-made farming machinery increased by 6 % between 2012 and 2013. Local farmers and business people started noticing the Kuhn, Manitou, Pellenc or Berthoud logos hard at work in the countryside, up and down the country. “These companies found the right distributors and they are focused on specific niches, ones whose needs they really understand,” explains Tatiana Miron.   In a completely different business segment — that of equipment designed and manufactured for the food industry — “France is still the reference throughout the world,” says Tatiana Miron. “When the exporting company is French, doors open more easily.”    With an international market share of 5.40 %, France is ranked fifth in this industry segment, behind Germany and Italy, two leaders in the market for food-industry equipment.   Innovative, flexible and well-adapted to their export markets, French-based businesses are able to meet local demand effectively. “The French offer is well-positioned for producing machines and implements for industrial preparation of food and drinks,” says Tatiana Miron.   France is also strong in baking/pastry equipment, in biscuit making, but also for specialized implements designed for meat. According to Tatiana Miron, “All of these specialties are growing at an exponential rate. France is displaying all its ability to innovate. Flexible and well-adapted to each market, French companies have become highly specialized.”   This certainly is the strategy that the major French players (and brands) in the sector — such as Bongard, Serac and Cermex — have adopted. They combine an in-depth knowledge of various export markets with a high level of responsiveness in order to bid successfully for contracts, responding quickly to calls for tender. This competitive edge is what has allowed these specialist players to reinforce their presence in several market niches, and to continue expanding internationally.   For further information about French companies in the agri-f oods sector, please go to:   Livestock, Meat, Processed meat products   Fishery and Aquaculture products and processed   Agricultural equipment and Food processing, Packaging

Vivapolis is re-inventing the future of sustainable urban development

Aurore Bernard - 16-mai-2014 10:47:38
Imagine the city of tomorrow: that is the daily challenge many French companies are ready to meet today, all of them re-grouped under the Vivapolis brand.   French know-how in providing solutions in the field of sustainable urban development definitely has takers elsewhere in the world. Today, major cities throughout the world are searching for very specific expertise when it comes to developing, renewing and re-inventing themselves. France has many high-caliber players — such as Bouygues, Vinci, Eiffage, Alstom, Veolia   and Egis — together with innumerable SMEs positioned on highly technological niche markets that respond to the crucial challenges of tomorrow.   Initiated by the French authorities, Vivapolis regroups French-based players with a wide range of expertise that they have to offer in order to meet the needs of cities all around the world. “Simply because it is always easier to focus attention on a name everyone can recognize,” explains Caroline Olivier, Environment Project Manager at UBIFRANCE Paris. “More than 70 French enterprises focused on sustainable cities have risen to the challenge by joining Vivapolis. In that sense, Vivapolis is re-inventiong the future for cities worldwide.”   Demonstrations of the   proven know-how available in France abound with projects such as the Grand Paris, the Grand Lyon, the Euro-Mediterranean project in Marseille, or the Urban Community of Bordeaux, among other initiatives. In every case, there are many issues that need to be faced such as mobility, managing energy, and dealing with pollution.   One common thread shared by all these urban-development projects involves improving the quality of life and social cohesion in these cities to make them more attractive. Several ambitious projects have been started to develop appropriate responses. One key example is the Auto-Lib transport system in Paris, aimed at reducing traffic in the city with non-polluting electric cars. Bordeaux Euratlantique , an extensive construction endeavour, is revealing of the wide scope of initiatives that Vivopolis is capable of.   Relying more particularly on the development of eco-quarters, the project combines energy efficiency, water recycling and a solar-energy plant.   Vivapolis is ready for the export market and many international projects illustrate this: it is already present in Morocco, where public-sector authorities hope to benefit from French know-how to develop the new city of Chrafate, in the Tanger-Tetouan region. “The Moroccan authorities requested assistance from the French to help them carry out this ambitious project,” explains Caroline Olivier.   The same thing is true for Turkey, which has the youngest population in Europe. The Turkish authorities expect French companies to help them integrate this young population more effectively into a cityscape that is constantly growing.   As for China, its gigantic projects require showing up with turnkey proposals. Over the past 10 years, French companies have already carried out more than 200 projects in approximately 50 Chinese cities. Another highlight is the French eco-quarter that is going to be built in the Tiexi district, in Shenyang. In the urban-transport field, Alstom and its joint-venture, Satée, won a deal amounting to €75 million to provide locomotives for 550 wagons on Subway Lines 3 and 4 in Chengdu, the fifth largest city in China.   For Caroline Olivier, “Vivapolis involves a large number of French companies working on sustainable cities, responding to key issues in urbanization for emerging countries as well as for the renewal of major cosmopolitan [urban] areas worldwide.”   French companies are getting the benefit of cutting-edge technology, with the use of state-of-the-art technologies, proposing 3D simulations for these international projects in order to allow decision-makers to visualize different possibilities for a district or a city. These virtual scale models showcase all of Vivapolis’ partners and their respective specialisms. The technology is now being tested in relation to initiatives in Astana (Kazakhstan) and Santiago (Chile).   For further information, please go to the following URLs: Vivapolis powered by French creativity   Cities : a collective adventure   Directory of French companies
