Simplifying Payment Processing For Universities

What We Do
Honestly, No One Does What We Do
Tech-agnostic, client-centric payment experts.
We’re advocates for simplicity. And universities are anything but. By helping universities reduce complexity and scope, we help Treasury Directors and Finance Executives increase revenue with custom-designed payment processing solutions.
We’re also independent operators partners, working collaboratively across technologies to give you the custom solution you want.
Of course, after navigating hundreds of systems, processors, and accounts, we offer a strong perspective on which payment solutions are the most secure, efficient, and cost-effective.
Arrow Payments is the primary extension of the Treasury, Finance, and IT teams.
Manage Existing Payment Systems
We can jump into your current systems and manage, monitor and optimize your payment processing solutions.
Assess + Audit Current State
We perform Discovery Projects to give you deep insights into your current state and provide recommendations that address complexity and compliance.
Set Up Merchant Accounts
We offer a single point of contact with every merchant account and processor, simplifying processes across the university.
Procure + Install Equipment
We’ll track down, order, and install PCI compliant hardware and devices to address payment processing trends and cardholder demands.
Integrate Payment Systems
We can integrate your systems and give you a custom dashboard so you have complete visibility into transactions and payment systems.
Achieve PCI Compliance
We help you reach your PCI compliance requirements by devising compliant solutions, auditing your systems, training employees, and supporting SAQs and audits.
Deliver Ongoing Service
We never go away (unless you want us to!). We are an extension of your team and are at-the-ready to help you with everything payments.
Arrow Payments has done it all – from discovery, identification of key issues, recommended courses of action; to onboarding a new payment processor and preferred Qualified Security Assessor, and providing long-range customer service.
It’s About More Than Payments
Business is personal.
We believe business is a force for good. We strive every day in every way to improve the lives of our clients — by solving the most stressful challenges — and our team, by providing a place to work and grow.
Life is about so much more than work. It’s about growth. Collaboration. Authentic communication. Listening. And love. We believe love is how we care for our clients, respect one another, and watch over ourselves.
Put Good Vibes Out Into the World
Giving back is in our DNA. That’s why every year we donate on behalf of our clients to organizations that serve those in need.
Find out why giving back is important to our identity and how we make it a part of our everyday.
Thanks so much, Marci (and Deborah and Bryan and Dawn and the whole Arrow team)!! We have felt the exact same way and can’t thank you all enough for bringing the Arrow magic to our campus!
Have a peaceful holiday with your families. Looking forward to see you IN PERSON in the new year!
