Reston, VA (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
FrontStream Payments and Adirondack Solutions have collaborated to offer an integrated solution that combines Adirondack Solutions’ MyHousing student management system and FrontStream’s flexible fasttransactTM Payment Platform. The MyHousing self-service system allows students to choose roommates, select rooms, change their personal preferences, view their current and future assignments, purchase dining plans/points, and much more. Integrating FrontStream’s fasttransactTM platform with MyHousing provides educational institutions with a seamless payment portal for their residents and allows parents and students that interact with the MyHousing system to quickly and easily submit payments for college and university housing.
“Offering self-service payment applications that give parents and students greater access and control over when, where and how they can make housing payments helps simplify the overall college experience ,” states Nina Vellayan, FrontStream Payments’ Chief Executive Officer and President, “Our fasttransact™ payment management platform, which includes our consumer web and mobile products and seamless data integration features, couples perfectly with the MyHousing application from Adirondack Solutions.”
With the addition of fasttransactTM to the MyHousing student management software system, students, parents, educators and administrators will experience an intuitive, front-end web payment interface for submitting and tracking payments. The custom integration between the two systems provides administrators of the MyHousing system a single log-in and automatic access to real-time payment data information. Since the fasttransactTM payment platform is fully customizable, each institution can brand their payment pages and collect funds using FrontStream’s hosted, secure pages in a fashion that best fits their needs.
“Adirondack Solutions is very excited about this new, out-of-the-box solution with Front Stream. We feel it will truly benefit our mutual customers, ,” says Bill Gunger, Vice President of Sales at Adirondack Solutions, ““The new gateway will allow students seamless avenues to make housing payments directly from the portal. Our technical staff(s) need to be commended for creating this innovative payment option for the housing education market.”
As an added value to FrontStream’s core payment processing ability, the fasttransactTM platform is administered entirely through a groundbreaking, back-end interface known as the Partner Portal which gives each platform user 100% control and the ability to personalize payment pages on demand for maximum flexibility. Via Partner Portal, administrative users can quickly and easily adjust configurable payment options for front-end users, including future scheduled payment, split payment and automatic recurring payment options. Configurable payment types, including all major credit and debit cards, eCheck processing, and convenience fee options have also been built into the system, allowing for rapid set-up and deployment.
The power of the Partner Portal is further augmented by a feature-rich data management system, complete with real-time reporting, downloadable demographic data unique to each organization, and targeted marketing tools that allow schools to engage parents and supporters anytime using email and SMS text channels to communicate important announcements.
“This solution represents FrontStream’s dedication to providing the Education sector with secure and conveniently integrated solutions,” Vellayan continues, “We continue to monitor market needs with enhanced technology delivered through our all-in-one, modular payment platform.”
