A Wealth of Community Knowledge and Insights

New Opportunities for the Future
On top of all that, Liaison’s acquisition of TargetX in October simultaneously broadened the reach of BusinessCAS and consolidated some of higher ed’s most popular tools under one platform — at a time when other companies were closing because of the pandemic.
