This week’s customer spotlight is HEC Paris Business School.
HEC Paris is an international business school in Paris, France that is one of the oldest business schools in the world. Offering impressive MBA, PhD, and other educational programs meant contracts needed to be organized efficiently and able to be accessed by people all around the world. Concord spoke to HEC’s Information System Manager, Gael Boisseau, and lawyer, Maud Romieu, about how Concord has transformed their ability to move quickly and work more efficiently.
Getting signatures quickly was difficult as HEC students and offices span the entire globe. The school worked mainly through manual contract processes, and mailing these contracts back and forth could be time-consuming.
