The company carried out a complete rebranding in 2022, and redesigned its offers.
Thanks to Sigilium the new brand image was automatically deployed, for all the teams. At the headquarter, but also in the 23 training centers.

why regain control of the company's email signatures?
Email facts and figures
It's always a mess to ask your teams to update their email signature manually. That's why this channel is constantly under used and by the way underated among the communication tools. However, the email is the first touchpoint with the brand. Email signatures are an essential asset for the brand, and for your communication strategy.
During your BtoB's customer journey, the email channel is unavoidable. Email signatures are the first touchpoint with your brand, in all email exchanges.
Don't forget your contacts spend much more time checking their email inbox, than in Linkedin or other professional social media.
It is therefore urgent to regain control of signatures and make it:
- a tool serving your brand
- a powerful channel for targeted communications
- an effective and measurable media
- Each of your coworkers send an average of 2000 email /year outside of the company.
2h23, this is the average time spent by your interlocutors in front of their mailbox each working day.
