Client testimonials

AG2R La Mondiale

Private health insurance / Insurance

Everial has acted as AG2R La Mondiale’s archiving partner since the 1990s.

Our relationship can be summed up in three words:  “Trust, reliability and support”.

Thierry Patte, Logistics Director

Crédit Agricole


The Crédit Agricole regional bank for Côtes d’Armor entrusted its Payment protection insurance (PPI) files to Everial, thus ensuring secure conservation, integrity and streamlined access to those managing them.

Crédit Agricole


Crédit Agricole Anjou-Maine entrusted the management and conservation of credit and client files to Everial, thus benefitting from a secure, simple, swift, money-saving solution to data access.



While relocating the head office, Axéréal decided to also restructure and optimise the management of their archives and related procedures, using improved monitoring and
traceability. This was folded into the sustainable development strategy.

Caisse d’Epargne


The Caisse d’Epargne Rhône-Alpes chose to outsource the conservation and management of its archives to a single service provider in order to: pool all inventory (internal and outsourced) smooth the filing process, handle recurrent flow, and ensure that the various departments needing to search or send files could do so independently.

We really appreciated the smooth, swift implementation of Everial’s solution. Everial’s overall control of physical and digital document flow also consolidated our confidence in our choice of partner. Not only did we save a lot of space by outsourcing the conservation of our hard copy files, our Insurance department increased productivity thanks to facilitated searching and viewing of digital files on request. Staff were able to concentrate on premium tasks required in our industry.

Xavier Le Mener, Logistics Officer

We forged a great partnership with Everial and are highly satisfied. We have full confidence in Everial’s expert knowledge of archiving. We especially appreciated their responsiveness, professionalism and high regard for security measures.

M. Rogemont, Credit Document Search Officer

The relocation schedule was very tight. In a matter of weeks, Everial staff had transferred the archives, all the while ensuring business continuity. Their strengths were their great responsiveness, adaptability and insight into our needs, stemming from the remarkable listening skills demonstrated by Everial staff.

Stéphane Moulai, Indirect Purchasing Director

Everial’s strength throughout this project was the sheer professionalism and skill of their staff as they worked alongside us. They got fully involved in all spheres of banking in our many cross-cutting lines of business. The Everial project team participated fully in drawing up the procedures and operating modes, describing the various archiving processes. They also contributed to the training phase for our various entities.
