►What drives us
First of all, we are driven by a conviction: international mobility, especially when it concerns a destination far from ours, represents an intense source of personal development. This conviction is confirmed by the stories of those who have had the opportunity to live this type of experience since the beginning of our activity. Beyond the discovery of another country, of another culture, beyond memories, it is perhaps the possibility of taking a step back from one’s own culture and one’s self which constitutes the most powerful return of this type of experience.
We then have the feeling that despite the visible cultural differences, the French-speaking world and India have a solid basis of compatibility. History and recent economic or diplomatic exchanges bear witness to mutual respect and kindness. Exchanges between France and India are particularly likely to develop at the educational or professional level. The prospect of being able to contribute to this inevitable rapprochement is for all staff a great source of motivation.
Finally, support is at the heart of our concerns. The well-being of the people we support is an important driver. The quality of stay in a country with different lifestyles and cultural approaches depends on factors like cultural shock preparation, meticulous hosting structure and stakeholders’ selection and small details that can have a significant impact on the course of the stay. These are the elements we have tried to continuously improve in order to optimize the quality of this type of experience.
►Our pricing and development policy
Most stakeholders in the international mobility market are developing through a network of intermediary organizations. They are either specialized in promotion or in reception services, but rarely mix both. As a result, margins are added and the price of services is high. In addition, continuity of services is not optimized. We pay particular attention to keeping our services close to their real values, maintaining reasonable margins in order to make our services accessible to a broad category of budget. Not having intermediaries also helps us keep competitive prices. We also have chosen to focus on developing the quality of services rather than developing volume of application despite the fact that our market has been significantly expanded.
