ContactOffice enters the Higher Education market in Belgium
The “Paul-Henri Spaak” higher school has selected ContactOffice as messaging and collaborative solution. Leader on the French higher education market, ContactOffice now enters the Belgian market with this first higher school located in Brussels.
Administrative staff and teachers have been using their new collaboration platform for a few weeks. Thanks to their customized virtual office, they now benefit from shared calendars, contacts and documents. Because of the reorganization of higher education in Belgium, the customer needed e-mail addresses on two domain names: each user has his primary address on the main domain and an alias on the secondary domain, all messages being delivered to a single mailbox.
The higher school’s head of IT department comments on the quick adoption by end-users:
“Everybody here likes this new tool. It’s very easy and straightforward. We plan to capitalize this enthusiasm and bring new ways of collaborative work that most will abide by.”
Other higher schools in Belgium have already shown interest in a ContactOffice customized version because it allows smooth electronic document distribution and easy communication with students and staff members, for instance.
