Our story

Aprais are the global pioneers in building stronger business relationships. Since we established the category over 20 years ago, we have advised the world’s leading marketers and agencies on more than 26,000 relationships, across 70+ countries with multiple clients, in 13 languages. This has enabled us to build a large bank of data that allows companies to accurately compare their business relationships with those of their peers.

We realise relationships are built on trust, so we operate with complete confidentiality, impartiality and to the highest security standards. For this reason we do not publicly mention our clients by name and focus purely on improving relationships. We will not get directly involved in fee negotiations, agency searches or pitches.
