We were keen to broaden the breadth of payment methods available to Brunel customers. We knew this would benefit the university by improving our cashflow too. This all needed to be based on a fully secure and compliant payment process.
The Solution: Enabling PCI DSS Compliance
Counter receipting has allowed the University to implement efficient face-to-face payments, whilst remaining PCI DSS Compliant. Secondly, taking payments over the phone securely through Paye.net and then, most importantly, an online payment solution, allowing greater flexibility for our students. The system also allows easy upload into Brunel’s systems and can be further developed with other areas of the University as needed, since it has an online interface.
An easy solution that fit best with our needs to: not only improve our cashflow, with transacting timely payments, but also improving our student experience with the breadth and flexibility of payments options available to them.
A system that’s easily manageable, as our resources are limited, which also fully meets the University’s expectations. The excel SQL for reporting purpose is superb and allows much faster resolutions of queries. All transactions are recorded into a single database making reconciliation much easier too.
