A year full of changes

In a constantly changing environment where everything evolves rapidly, it was time to change our identity and our tool. Three major new developments therefore emerged this year with the renaming of our BtoB database, the overhaul of our platform and the launch of our new website.

lefac.com reinvents its platform and becomes andzup: a digital B2B prospecting booster for communication and media professionals

andzup, the new B2B brand from TBS Group, brings a breath of fresh air to lefac.com with a fully redesigned platform offering a smoother, more dynamic user experience. With this overhaul, andzup enables you to identify and qualify leads in France and Europe, in no time at all. The result is an optimised platform with an intuitive user journey designed to win over new markets.

A name change in line with the platform’s mission

It was time for lefac.com to get a makeover and make way for andzup: a dynamic, positive new brand with an international focus. The more modern name was the obvious choice for the Group’s country managers, symbolising a focus on the future for all our partners. This transformation marks an important step in the company’s evolution, supporting its development in Europe.

A versatile solution to boost performance

andzup is more than just a database. It is revolutionising prospecting thanks to its multi-data platform and 360° view of information. The result is structured, customisable content for sales representatives and decision makers seeking new markets. Its unified, intelligent solution helps companies grow, with bespoke, selective results.

A new website designed to personalise the user experience

A new redesign could not happen without a new website: with its new interface, andzup offers a full range of informative features dedicated to decision makers: expert articles, newsletters, white papers and even pitchlists. The site offers new ergonomics and a brand new design to improve the user experience.

Are you tempted by the andzup experience?

Our sales representatives are available to present the andzup solution to you in a few minutes.
