French term or phrase: "grille d'analyse"
The full sentence is "Nous sommes en train de réaliser des grilles d'analyse qui seront a terme sur notre site: elles montrent les bénéfices apportés par nos solutions selon chaque type d'interlocuteur". I understand that the company will publish on its website the results that they obtain with their (software) product with different kind of people using it (managers of different sectors, CEO, etc.) (The software in question helps in the study of the human potential within a client company.) Could it be "analytical frameworks"? Someone else suggested "grids, tables or matrices", but the context gives me the feeling this wouldn't be presented so much as a grid as a more elaborate presentation. Am I wrong? Any comment? Any suggestion?

visual graphic


Explanation:
Sounds to me like this is some sort of visual graphic analysis - bar graph, pie graph, etc. I think it says, "We're developing a visual graphic to be set up on our site that will show how our various offerings benefit each personality type." The correct word for grille is always "grid", but a grid can be of different types.
Bon courage!

analysis matrix or cost-benefit matrix


Explanation:
This sounds like a spreadsheet or other tabular presentation of the benefits being presented. Matrix is more common than grid in such a context, at least in the US.
Good luck.
