ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading international provider of electronic payment and banking solutions, today announced that Ohio-based Franklin University has selected ACI to power its online payments.
As one of the largest private universities in Ohio, with a growing enrollment approaching 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students, Franklin University wanted a proven payment provider with technology that required no additional programming to integrate with the University's ERP system. It also wanted technology that provided a low total cost of ownership. ACI's electronic payment solutions and integrated strategic partnerships with wide-ranging ERP providers made it the ideal payment partner for the University.
ACI is a market leader in providing electronic payment solutions to colleges and universities with more than 300 higher education institutions in the United States and Puerto Rico utilizing its payment processing solutions. For more than twenty years, colleges and universities have relied on ACI's solutions to provide students and parents with convenient and secure methods to pay tuition and fees--phone, web and in-person payment systems for 24/7/365 convenience and reliability.
"When we set out to implement the self-service payment option with our Colleague software, we needed a trusted vendor with strong solutions that had a close relationship with Ellucian," said Christine Kurth, director, University Information Systems, Franklin University. "We asked other institutions for recommendations and they overwhelmingly praised ACI. ACI's solution was easy to implement and fully integrated with our Colleague system."
"We are pleased to provide Franklin University with a convenient and secure online tuition and fees payment option," said Eric Labiak, senior vice president, ACI Worldwide. "Our online payment options will deliver an enhanced payment experience for the school's continuing education students."
