OneStream Customer Success Webinars – The Best of 2018

One of the unique things about OneStream Software is the company's commitment to delivering 100% customer success. This isn't just a marketing slogan, it drives everything we do from engineering, to services, training, support, marketing and our partner ecosystem.

Real Stories of Real Value

The result of this commitment is a dedicated, and growing base of customers who just love to share their stories. This is assuming their corporate communications departments are OK with them going public! OneStream has a growing number ofcustomer testimonials on our web site – both in written form and in short videos. And we also have a growing library of 60-minute customer success webinars.

The webinars allow us to give customers the stage and let them tell their full stories, and answer questions from attendees. In 2018, we produced 7 of these customer success webinars, and the stories are powerful examples of the benefits our customers achieve by replacing legacy CPM products, and in some cases spreadsheets, with OneStream's modern, unifiedSmartCPMTM platform.

In case you weren't able to catch these when they were initially published here are the highlights of our 2018 customer success webinars, with links to the replays. Enjoy!
