< 5,000 students

Fewer users doesn't equal fewer problems. Smaller universities are often challenged with similar workloads as their larger brethren, but with leaner IT departments and budgets. Universities and higher education institutions with anywhere up to 5,000 students require an efficient software deployment solution that can be managed with ease and deployed with confidence.

AppsAnywhere has found a place of favor within IT of universities and colleges with up to 5,000 students worldwide by elegantly solving challenges the largest 'overkill solutions' can't. All with a lean price point that's easy to approve.
