Disparate Department Fiefdoms

With dozens of departments each with a preferred methodology, it is hard to find solutions that work for everyone.

Dozens of Merchants, Processors, + Systems

Misalignment means each department may have its own system, preferred merchant, and processing systems. 

Rogue FinTech and Shadow Finance

Without understanding the consequences, your stakeholders may devise and install their own, unsecured solutions. 

PCI Compliance + Audits

Your systems intake tons of credit card and cardholder data, increasing the challenge of meeting PCI compliance standards.

Knowledge Transfer + Loss Risk

Should your payment processing specialist leave, you risk losing data and critical, valuable knowledge. 

Low Payment Collections

Inefficient or ineffective systems decrease your ability to collect payments and drive revenue growth across campus.
