Integrated online payment portal provides convenience and greater efficiencies for K-12 districts and parents
Harris School Solutions is pleased to announce the integration of eSchoolPayments, an online payment portal for parents, with Activities Account Web (AAWeb), the flagship centralized solution that provides precise management of school funds and transactions. eSchoolPayments will benefit districts by collecting a variety of fees seamlessly, processing private and secure credit card transactions without storing credit card information, and providing payment information automatically to the general ledger and cash accounts. Parents will benefit by having the ability to access a user-friendly system to pay fees anywhere with an Internet connection, eliminating the need for students to bring cash or checks to school. eSchoolPayments is safe and secure and improves district efficiencies by automating the receipt process, while reducing cash and check collections.
AAWeb simplifies school and district processes to track and reconcile activity funds including athletic and club events; when combined with eSchoolPayments, time-consuming processes are automated, thereby reducing error-prone manual entry. The solution is convenient for business offices as it offers multiple levels of security, automates district-wide reporting and protects sensitive account information through secure, real-time access.
Deana Kovalcik, Vice President of Sales for Harris School Financial Solutions stated, “We are very excited to announce the roll-out of our online payment portal. Parents will now be able to log in, view fees due, and make a payment from the convenience of their own home for all of their kids, whether or not they attend the same school within a district. As a parent, I know this is a feature families will appreciate.”
