Houston, October 23, 2018 — Morae Global Corporation, the full-service, technology-enabled, integrated solution provider for the legal and compliance function, has been selected by Pearson, an industry-leading learning business, to provide support in creating a Transaction Services Center (TSC) to optimize resources and deliver services more quickly, accurately and cost-effectively.
The TSC will be a single function within the legal department and will be responsible for the end-to-end handling of customer, expenditure, licensing and author agreements currently handled by various teams.
Working closely with Pearson senior vice president & associate general counsel technology, strategy, & shared services Robert A. Mignanelli, Morae Global professionals will function as a partner in providing the necessary expertise and technology to successfully implement and operate the TSC. Pearson rolled out its initial migration phase in Aug. 2018, with the TSC to be fully operational by Q1 2019.
“The legal profession continues to experience upheaval and disruption with general counsel increasingly transforming their internal and external resources to optimize service delivery,” says Mignanelli. “After an extensive market evaluation, Morae Global was chosen because of their deep expertise in using technology, metrics and analytics to deliver transactional services quickly and efficiently.”
The announcement follows the increasing shift to shared services across Pearson as they seek to become more efficient and streamlined. Benefits of the TSC will include: increased consistency through global standardization of processes; expanded flexibility with the ability to quickly scale up or down to meet the needs of business; improved cost-effectiveness and value creation through a reduction in duplication and improved lower-cost locations; and a smarter allocation of work.
“We are thrilled that Pearson, one of the world’s leading learning companies, has chosen Morae Global to help transform their legal and compliance function,” says Morae Global Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Shahzad Bashir. “Working with Pearson’s forward-thinking law department continues our mission to help our clients by reinventing the business of law.”
