Harrow School Case Study: Technology to fit culture

When Harrow School, a prestigious boarding school in London, was looking to ditch a cumbersome invoice process, they knew the solution would have to adapt to its unique culture.

In this short video, Daniel Emkes, Director of Finance and Systems, explains how Concur Invoice took the pressure away from busy users and helped them to approve invoices on the go. The overall process is now centralised and more efficient for all.



“We have an unusual culture and an IT project is not going to work unless the technology fits with the culture – that’s where Concur comes in.”


Hear from Harrow School as they discuss their culture and how they found an invoice solution to fit.
