Higher Education

Creating a Bright Future

The business of higher education is as dynamic and demanding as that of any Fortune 500 company. Unpredictable enrollment, dependence on government funding and shrinking endowments can make it difficult to balance budgets and deliver the level of service students and faculty demand.

Efficiently collecting and processing tuition and fees from a student body requires robust collection capabilities. At the same time, professors, staff and suppliers depend on your ability to make payments accurately and on time. Add the ongoing need to maximize the value of endowments, investments and other assets and the business needs can seem overwhelming.
