ACI Worldwide, one of the leading global providers of electronic payment and banking solutions, recently announced that Pennsylvania-based Eastern University has selected the company to power its payment plan and tuition payments across multiple channels. With an enrolment of about 4,000 undergraduate and graduate students, Eastern University wanted a proven electronic payment system that required no additional programming to integrate with its ERP system.
The University also wanted technology that provided a low total cost of ownership. ACI’s UP Bill Payment Solution as well as its integrated strategic partnership with Ellucian made it the school’s ideal payment partner. ACI is a market leader in providing bill payment systems to colleges and universities with more than 300 higher education institutions in the United States and Puerto Rico utilizing its payment processing solutions.
