The Insala team were able to translate the BPI France website into British English and launch the website in record time. As a result, we were able to deliver our career center services to the customer with timescales that exceeded their expectations.

This past winter was definitely remarkable. We found that the E-mail Broadcaster function is the easiest and fastest way to reach all our candidates to inform them of any changes in our office hours - including having to close due to inclement weather, delayed openings, or early closure. Additionally, we use this function to promote our seminars and workshops, and the career coaches can reach all of their candidates in one simple email. This tool is a tremendous asset.
