Pennsylvania-based Eastern University has selected ACI Worldwide, a provider of electronic payment and banking solutions, to power its payment plan and tuition payments across multiple channels.
ACI said that its UP Bill Payment Solution along with its integrated strategic partnership with Ellucian will benefit the university with low cost ownership and no additional programming to incorporate with its ERP system.
Scott Fitzgerald, vice president of ACI Worldwide, said: "With the rising cost of university education across the country, we are pleased to provide Eastern University with an easy and engaging way for their students’ families to set up payment plans."
Lisa Weller, senior director of Student Accounts at Eastern University, added: "When we selected Ellucian Colleague for our ERP system, we inquired with other schools in the Ellucian community about payment plan and tuition payments.
"After receiving countless endorsements for ACI’s UP Bill Payment Solution, we learned that it could meet all of our ecommerce requirements, offer full integration with our Colleague system and provide a low total cost of ownership."
