In partnering with FrontStream Payments, the Central Washington University Alumni Association will be gaining the benefits of FrontStream’s unique University Alliance Program. The program is designed to serve alumni business owners with a full suite of affordable and secure payment acceptance solutions while facilitating alumni donations to the university.
The CWU alumni merchant program provides an automated, ongoing revenue stream to the alumni association that affords university leaders with significant planning and implementation advantages. Through this new, easy to implement contribution program, FrontStream can now help foster good will, much needed resources and also greater synergy between CWU, its alumni and their businesses.
“FrontStream Payments’ University Alliance Program is a truly unique vehicle designed to enhance a university’s giving process, offer departments and alumni business owners competitive payment processing advantages, and seamlessly integrate the two into an automated contribution method for alumni supporters,” said Nina Vellayan, Chief Executive Officer and President of FrontStream Payments. “We are honored to be working with Central Washington University and look forward to providing this distinguished institution, and its alumni, robust and secure payment solutions along with our innovative donation program.”
With FrontStream Payments’ processing solutions on board, departments in the university and its alumni business owners, can take advantage of the entire FrontStream suite of payment acceptance and point of sale integration technologies. These solutions include, but are not limited to, the FrontStream proprietary gateway platform designed with the assurance of total security, PCI compliance, and flexibility, the end-to-end menu of FrontStream’s merchant processing offerings, and the company’s unique software integration expertise designed to seamlessly link FrontStream’s automated technologies with other educational software applications already in use.
“The CWU Alumni Association looked at several new affinity partners over the past four years, but chose only FrontStream. We were impressed by the quality of FrontStream's product and reputation, and believe that our members will be as well. It's an excellent addition to the services we already offer and we're excited to be partners in this new undertaking,” said Jim Armstrong, Executive Director of the CWU Alumni Association.
In addition, CWU affiliated merchants are able to bundle any of FrontStream’s robust electronic payment products into a personalized solution to take care of business at hand. Acceptance of traditional debit and credit card payments, offering the reliable eCheck payment alternative, setting up automatic recurring payments, and even creating a stored value account option are all accessible alternatives using the FrontStream Payments’ platform. Furthermore, every FrontStream product and uniquely bundled business solution can be used over the counter or through a browser-based web portal.
“FrontStream’s product and technology teams will persist to cultivate valued educational partnerships like this one with Central Washington University,” continued Vellayan, “They not only speak to our focus on fostering strong and long-lasting relationships in the education sector, but they also present valuable opportunities for addressing the electronic payment needs of institutions, students and families through our industry-centric, point of sale applications.”
