One of the biggest challenges school administrators face is communicating monies due to parents. Small amounts due accumulate quickly and lead to a school having a heavy receivables book and ultimately little cash flow. To avoid instances of late or missing payments, schools can take their payment acceptance online for easy and secure processing.
Improve Parental Engagement
A school payment solution tracking tuition, transport, extracurricular, and even cafeteria fees can be very beneficial to both parents and schools. At Payment Savvy, we understand how both parties operate and offer custom omnichannel payment options. Whether it be an online payment form, pay by text, or even IVR, offering options allows parents to choose the most convenient way to pay.
At the same time, an online school payment solution minimizes the need for parents to physically visit the school to make payment. It also avoids the frustration of parents wanting to confirm amounts due. It also guarantees the school children will never miss out on a school activity because of delayed payment.
Advantages of an Online School Payment Solution
As you can already see, an online school payment system makes it easier for parents and school administrators to manage monies due. Other benefits include:
- Choose different payment options such as automatic recurring or one-time payments
- All forms of payment accepted – credit card, debit card, and even electronic check
- Payment solutions are fully integrated into bookkeeping programs, such as QuickBooks
- Parents can generate payment receipts and track balances in real-time.
- Automatic payment reminders
