Business operations

Access to high-quality services
at a cost-effective price!

The traditional definition of a Shared service concentrates on bringing together 'back office' functions, often from geographically different areas.

One of RM ESI's success stories has been to successfully adapt and deliver both the traditional "back office" tasks in HR, Finance, Business Operations, Class Room Technologies, and the more complex "Non-Back office" tasks in areas like Technical Product Management, Group Licensing, Marketing Services and the like.
