Alida empowers Bollé Brands to guide product portfolio expansion decisions with customer insights
PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Alida (formerly Vision Critical), creator of the world’s first CXM & Insights Platform, today announced Bollé Brands, a leading eyewear and head protection group, has chosen Alida to help the company drive elevated customer experiences and inform its growth strategies for their sportswear and lifestyle products.
“At Bollé Brands, 2 of our key strategic pillars are E.P.I.C and Consumer First. E.P.I.C, which stands for Excellence in Product Innovation and Creativity, aims to place product innovation and development at the heart of Bollé Brands strategy. What makes innovation successful and finally drives more business is fulfilling and also anticipating the needs of our most important stakeholders; our customers,” said François Benaben, President of the Sport & Luxury division at Bollé Brands. “Our ultimate goal is to disrupt the markets we are in with innovative products that cater to the needs of our customers. I’m thrilled to kick off this project as the Alida platform will enable us to build a bridge between our two strategic pillars and will allow us to create more business while at the same time enhancing the consumer experience.”
The Alida platform will support the company’s expansion into sportswear and lifestyle eyewear through proactively listening to and understanding its customers’ continuously evolving needs.
