AXA is a French group rooted from the merge of various insurance companies whose the most ancient was created in 1816.

L'Ancienne Mutuelle de Rouen was a small French insurance society created during the XIXth century whose main function was to cover the agricultural risks in Normandy.

Over this cooperation the future group of AXA will be developed.
In 1978 l'Ancienne Mutuelle takes the control of the Compagnie parisienne de garantie, renamed Mutuelle parisienne de garantie. The cooperative Ancienne mutuelle is renamed Mutuelles Unies.

In 1982, Mutuelles Unies buy the Drouot Group. The whole of this becomes the first private insurance group in France. In July of 1985: AXA becomes the corporate denomination of the all Mutuelles Unies /Drouot.

During a cold call process considered like ?aggressive?, the client will not have pleasure to discuss with a salesperson, he will fell attacked and will not want to buy the product that the company is trying to sell him. Otherwise canvassing enables this link between the seller and the buyer. In the insurance's world: between the general agent or salesperson and the client. By canvassing the general agent or the involved salesperson highlights company's available products he is working for. [...]

[...] Schedule and details of the commercial operation In order to set up the commercial strategy to sell both products I had to organize the schedule of the activities and the steps I was going to proceed knowing that this commercial planning takes into account notions of commercial negotiation, computer skills and marketing. The steps were the following: Selection and classification of the clients to canvass in the portfolios of the general agents. I had to construct an Excel table and put into alphabetic order the 115 clients I had to carry out. Then I entered each data of each client (postal address, zip code, electronic address, phone number, cell phone number, first postal letter send's date, first phone call's date, and relaunch phone call's date).
