Describe your company's current technology and solutions
Parchment is a comprehensive digital credentials platform. As learners move from high school to post secondary and on to graduate or professional programs they will continue to acquire credentials that document their academic achievement. Each of these credentials can be collected and managed within the Parchment credential profile. Also universities, colleges, and high schools use Parchment to send digital transcripts, replacement diplomas, verificatiions and other records. Parchment also lets administrators issue digital diplomas, certificates and microcredentials to learners who in turn can share with employers and on social media.
