St John’s College, South Sea is a leading co-educational day and boarding school in Portsmouth. St John’s has over 460 students from ages 2 – 18 years with a strong international student population.

“At St John’s we found that we were spending valuable time and resources managing the laborious tasks of fee collections. Current processes were requiring large amounts of manual intervention and we found both ourselves and fee payers were incurring unnecessary transaction fees. We needed a product that was able to dramatically increase efficiency while reducing costs.

With Esenda, we were easily able to implement their smart and secure service, to achieve exactly that. We are now able to manage all of our payments through one central system, anything from a music lesson, ski trip or annual tuition fees.

Esenda’s large variety of payment methods and currencies gives us the ability to collect fees from all over the world within a secure environment. Furthermore, parents are kept up to date on their transactions with live notifications, eliminating the need for them to chase us for payment confirmation.”
