Before partnering with BCdiploma, Sommet Education’s institutions faced several challenges in the creation and distribution of diplomas.

Additionally, a significant challenge for Sommet Education as an educational group was to establish unique credentialing processes across its various schools, while still respecting the individual characteristics and needs of each institution.

Glion was looking for a solution to modernize and streamline its diploma creation and management processes, as well as to offer its students a unique service that matched its prestige.
