Anaplan Higher Education Webinar Series

Over the past three years, Anaplan has seen incredible growth in its adoption for all types of planning and budgeting within colleges, universities, and even full systems. More and more institutions are placing their confidence in our platform, our approach, and in our partners. It’s this unique combination that has resulted in such rapid acceptance across all segments.

We’re continuing to add to this library of customer stories told in their own voices that can be leveraged by and benefit the wider higher education community. This is a drastic and needed departure from how this important market has traditionally been served and speaks to the extremely wide range of ways that institutions continue to benefit from Anaplan.
