D-to-B (data to business)
How do you move from a business specialising in commercial and financial information in the early 1980s, to a company selling databases in the 1990s, and then to an international group specialising in data intelligence, with a worldwide reputation for its expertise and capacity for innovation?
By listening to your customers, adapting to new patterns of behaviour, grasping the opportunities presented by new technologies and getting your team on-board with a long-term project driven by enthusiasm and success!
The growth in our turnover is the result of a development policy based on three main drivers:
- Innovation, which allows us to refine our services and design new ones to respond to our customers’ needs
- International development through the creation of Inforisk Altares Africa and the acquisition of the Dun & Bradstreet Benelux subsidiary.
- Winning and retaining the loyalty of our customers based on the excellence of our teams and Altares’ long-term support strategy.
