In contrast to our free of charge licenses that only provides ARIS for educational and research purposes, ‘ARIS Discount’ also allows the use of ARIS for administrative, productive, and commercial purposes within the eligible customer segments. This offer covers our ARIS Basic, ARIS Advanced and ARIS Process Mining Advanced products.

Among other things, the license allows the use of ARIS to model and optimize any university processes and campus management systems within the university administration.

The ‘ARIS Discount for Universities’ license can be freely configured. For universities, we recommend starting with ARIS Advanced with 1 ARIS Designer, 10 ARIS Viewer.

After redeeming your Discount Coupon, the shop price will de reduced by 70% and you will receive your ‘ARIS Discount for Universities’-License for 9.959,04 € / 24 months or 414,96 € / month excl. VAT.
