Are you doing or planning on doing business in Quebec? This market has a unique set of localization challenges that Intuit and their partners have overcome though a successful partnership. This panel will discuss how the vendor is working to meet the client needs; how they navigated the linguist pool and identified solutions for harnessing and retaining the best talent; how they defined the optimal model based on the client’s need and identified processes and tools to enhance their relationship. The discussion will incorporate perspectives from the Intuit journey to give a balanced insight into the challenges of this distinct market.

Takeaways: Vendor perspective: discover creative ways to work around the challenges of sourcing for the Quebec market. Corporate perspective: see how the in-house and external vendor models actually operate. Hindsight is 20/20: learn what our panelists wish they had done prior to making a decision about their model of choice.
