Lincoln, Neb. (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
FACTS Management Company, the nation’s technology leader in the tuition management and payment processing industry for private and faith-based schools, has made its two most popular online services for families available in Spanish with just one click.
Families using the FACTS Enterprise Tuition Management and Payment Processing system and the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment program can now access those services in Spanish by simply clicking the “Español” button at the top of the screen. After clicking the button, a user’s entire session is in Spanish, even when moving to other web pages of the two services.
FACTS, a division of Nelnet, Inc., of Lincoln, Neb., is the nation’s leading provider of tuition management and financial aid assessment services to more than one million families at nearly 6,500 schools and serves a broad diversity of families.
Our Nation’s Diverse Population
Spanish-speaking citizens form one of the fastest growing segments of the U.S. population, with more than one in eight citizens speaking Spanish at home. Although most U.S. Spanish speakers also speak English, many prefer Spanish when using the Internet. Schools and families who use FACTS Management’s online tuition management and financial needs assessment services have been asking for Spanish versions of those services, and FACTS has delivered to meet that demand.
Popular Online Services
FACTS Management’s Enterprise Tuition Management and Payment Processing system, gives families the ability to manage their tuition accounts online. The system provides such account information as payment schedules and payment history. Families now have one-click access to the Enterprise system in Spanish.
Another very popular online service is the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment program. The program makes it possible for families to provide the necessary personal and financial information a single time in order to be considered by several schools for grants and financial aid. It is the most widely used needs analysis program for private and faith-based K-12 schools in the nation. The FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment program is also now available in Spanish.
The Spanish translations of the two programs have been performed by professionally-trained human translators who are native Spanish speakers and who have passed rigorous translation tests.
“As the leader in our industry, we serve thousands of schools across the country,” said Jim Owens, FACTS National Sales Manager. “Those schools serve a broad variety of communities and cultures. It has always been our goal to provide access to our services to as many families as we can. Making our most popular online services available in Spanish is just another way that FACTS is achieving that goal.”
