You Need Visibility To Make A Plan
Until you have a complete picture of how your campus payment systems are working — how many systems there are, what departments are actually doing, how much you are spending, and how much revenue is lost — you can’t make a plan.
Let us do the tedious work — interviewing departments, determining improvements, researching solutions — and then give you the overview so we can modernize your higher education payment systems together.
The State Of Payment Affairs
Legacy technology and antiquated processes mean departments lack the tools to improve operational efficiencies, PCI compliance and costs.

How We Assess Higher Education Payment Systems
In an exhaustive review of your current payment processing systems, we gather data from every department to create an inter-system map of your payments, opportunities, and risks.
Survey & Interview Departments
Send us out to the far reaches of campus, where we’ll meet with every concerning department, investigate and document processes, and uncover what’s really happening with payments.
Find out if devices are PCI compliant — and working. We’ll review payment systems and provide you a detailed presentation similar to your annual audit, except that we’re here to mend non-compliance.
Analyze Statements & Vendor Agreements
Give us your documentation stacks and we’ll comb through every detail, revealing new insights and data that doesn’t quite line up with cost-effectiveness.
Identify Payment Gaps
Find out where revenue isn’t coming in like it should and identify what departments need to improve payment acceptance across campus. With this information, we’ll optimize your higher education payment systems.
Get actionable recommendations based on our fieldwork expertise. After building solutions for several Big Ten, Ivy League, state and community colleges across the country, we know how to implement higher education payment systems that work.
Design a Roadmap
Take control of your systems with payment processing solutions across dozens of vendors that address department needs, reign in shadow finance, and give you complete visibility of your PCI compliant higher education payment systems.
