Customer case

E. Leclerc

The French retail giant reconciles the national and local vision using Dialog Insight and its distributed marketing feature.

For 70 years, E. Leclerc has pursued an objective: to democratize consumption and provide as many people as possible with access to all products and services. Accessibility is first and foremost a question of price. Prices that must remain the cheapest, whatever the product.

For E. Leclerc, accessibility is also a question of proximity and information. And to offer new markets such as parapharmacy, jewelry, and culture, the brand had to fight battles, fight against obsolete laws, break monopolies and develop new know-how*.

Our mandate

The E. Leclerc brand is confronted with several issues

– Standardization, centralization, quality and data control 

– Managing commercial pressure

– Compliance with the DGPR

– Convince and engage local stakeholders, i.e. stores and their owners

– Maintain a high degree of autonomy at the local level

The main objectives

The aim is to offer local and national actors a powerful and easy-to-use tool while maintaining an overview of the customer journey and its data, but also to centralize opt-ins to meet the legal obligations linked to the DGPR.
