TYPE OF BUSINESS: Selection to Succession. When your people decisions must be right, Accord Management Systems and their selection tools are the answer.

The right behaviors drive the right results. Harassment hotline is a 24/7 live operator that responds to the needs of your franchisees and their employees. This protects the franchisee from frivilous law suits. The bottom line is, that if you can't measure it, you can't manage it, and Accord Management Systems helps you get the people side of business right.
