The Simple Life with a Single Vendor Solution

School administrators are overworked and understaffed. All schools face having to do more with fewer resources. Public, private, and charter schools, face a difficult environment of hiring, staffing, and providing services at a decent level to their communities.  

At EduTrak, we know it’s an incredibly challenging time to be an educator. That is why we’ve created a single vendor solution for all your school’s payment needs. Let’s have a look at how using EduTrak’s payment solution can help ease your overworked business office.  

Sometimes Two (or More) is Not Better than One 

Many schools are still operating with payment software from multiple vendors. Your food services department uses one vendor for their needs while another company handles all activity registrations and payments. Yet another vendor handles your school’s ticketing. And then there is the library which has its own vendor to handle fees. And, we haven’t even discussed tuition, scholarships, and grants. It’s no wonder many school administrators keep a bottle of extra-strength headache relief medicine on their desks. 

Using multiple vendors that do not align on the back end makes reconciliation and reporting next to impossible. The troubles compound when your business office attempts to batch the payments for deposit, which requires tracking multiple merchant processing providers as well as having to reconcile each application to your bank on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. 

Using multiple-vendor software also requires parents to create a login ID and password for every account which they must keep track of causing a friction-filled interface. And if technical issues arise, and they do, your business office will have multiple customer service numbers to call in the hopes of a speedy resolution.  

If your administration staff is already stressed by their workload, they may lack the resources and time to keep track of each vendor and the ability to support all of the different solutions.
