Large Banner College Drives Collections With Simplified Payments

Colleges and universities are under increasing pressure to not only deliver an affordable education to students but also offer students and families modern, convenient ways to pay. For one large west coast college, this meant transforming its payments platform to meet the needs of today’s student body.

“It was important to us that we choose a company that could work with our Banner platform. We reached out to business administration networks and peers and we consistently heard ACI was the preferred vendor.“
