Payments Are Complex
How Do You Connect The Dots?
With dozens of stakeholders and hundreds of non-integrated payment systems, wrangling the complexity of payments — and building higher education payment solutions that work — simply isn’t happening.
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.
Average Number of Payment Systems
Treasury Departments Still Manually Reconciling Multiple Systems
