Success Stories

At BPI, we pride ourselves on our responsiveness to the needs of both existing and potential customers. Insala's fast and reliable customer service and support have enabled us to do just that. When BPI UK were faced with a tight deadline to develop a career center website for a customer, Insala quickly met our needs. 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.

Their ability to get REALLY good information, and MUCH MORE information than they typically could get on their own, and have it presented so quickly and effectively, is very powerful. It gives us a big sales and marketing advantage.
