Payment Solutions for Education

Universities and third level institutions that embrace electronic payments enjoy higher turnaround in reimbursement expenses and supplier payments. Simple, cost effective and secure electronic payments backed by unrivalled service are just some of the reasons why Fexco Corporate Payments is the number one choice for the Education sector.

Like any other business, third level institutions are seeking ways to operate more efficiently. Getting greater visibility on spend; improving supplier relationships and reducing costs can be hard to realise. Other significant challenges include:

  • Over reliance on paper leading to increased incidents of payment fraud.
  • Late payments caused by lost cheques.
