London, 21 April 2021 – APEXX Global, (“APEXX”), the multi-award-winning global payments platform, has partnered with Esenda, the disruptive payments company focused on independent schools, to help improve the security and efficiency of school fee payments.
Finance teams at independent schools spend valuable time and resources managing the laborious task of fragmented and sometimes paper-based fee collections. Current processes require large amounts of manual intervention and are often unsecure. In addition, these payments can incur large and unnecessary transaction fees for both the schools and fee payers.
Esenda’s one-stop interface has a smart and secure service, and parents and bursars are able to manage all payments through one central system, including anything from a music lesson, ski trip or annual tuition fees.
Esenda’s large variety of payment methods and currencies gives schools the ability to collect fees from all over the world securely. Furthermore, parents are kept up to date on their transactions with live notifications, eliminating the need for them to chase us for payment confirmation.
Esenda integrates Apexx’s payment infrastructure to its platform, allowing schools and fee paying parents to benefit from its secure and partner-agnostic technology, as well as increasing efficiency and reduces costs.
Bertie Simpson, CEO Founder at Esenda, said: “There are over 2,500 independent schools in the UK, many of which continue to expend unnecessary time and resource reconciling fees through outdated and fragmented payment systems. Our one-stop-platform truly revolutionises the process of education fee payments for fee payers and bursars alike.”
Douglas Adams, VP of Sales at APEXX, said: “We’re delighted to have partnered with Esenda to improve the outdated and insecure process of school fee payments.”
