Words about MyCreds™️…

“With MyCreds™️, Red River College has streamlined our service delivery by leaps and bounds. What used to take a full day is now taking 1 hour across hundreds of students. We are able to provide faster response times and our staff can now fulfill requests as soon as the student makes them, giving them access to their document within a few minutes. Students and staff are giving solid marks to MyCreds™️ and its user-friendly environment. We are excited to expand our use of the platform and will soon be launching Parchments. We recently launched Confirmation of Enrolment and Confirmation of Graduation letters, in addition to our transcripts.”

– Mandy Robinson, Acting Registrar and Director of Enrolment Services, Red River College

“There were two of us in the same cohort, so we were excited to receive our digital Business Essentials Badge from the University of Regina issued through MyCreds™️ and then share it on our company social media account. The Badge is fun to share, but also a tangible way of demonstrating that we invest in employees, strive to constantly improve and deliver excellent customer experience.”

– Anita Warriner, Executive Director, International Rural Exchange Canada
