There are three major pressures facing universities; demand-side pressures, revenue pressures, and increasing regulatory compliance. Through benchmarking practices, a university can complete strategic performance evaluations, better allocate resources, and share best practices with peers in order to address these issues and turn data into improvements.

Auburn University utilized ABC Insights® data to compare IT, Facilities, and Development labor spend data against peers, allowing them to identify areas for improvement, by comparing the results to their strategic priorities.
