Our client is an innovative and agile learning and media company impacting the lives of millions every day. The unique cross-media position offers the widest reach and tailored marketing solutions for our business partners.
Based in over 10+ European countries and employing more than 5,000 professionals.

Our client offers a number of learning platforms via the Internet, referred to in short as CFA (Customer Facing Application or formerly Educational Application) in order to be able to use the content of the teaching methods digitally.
To use the content, students (and teachers) must purchase a License. This is done by placing an order for a Product. If a user then actually wants to use the content and accesses it via the CFA, it must be checked whether he has ordered the necessary license for this and that it is still valid.
Recording the orders, converting them into Licenses and validating the existence and validity of the required License is the responsibility of the Distribution & Access system (D&T for short).
