The recent rapid increase in school fee targeted cyber-crime has put payment fraud prevention at the top of the agenda. Esenda’s primary focus is mitigating this risk through clever, cloud-based systems design, the adoption of the highest-level security standards and the world class technology infrastructure offered by Amazon Web Services. Our platform is also backed by some of the world’s leading, regulated payment partners. 

Yes. Esenda gives the school flexibility to offer a wide range of local and cost-effective international payment methods, increasing the speed of fee collections and enhancing the payment experience. Integrated, real-time payment tracking and collection confirmations gives transparency to both the school and payer alike.

First of all, the Esenda administration platform is free to implement and use. With this in place, Esenda’s credit and debit card payment functionality can save educational institutions thousands of pounds by dramatically reducing merchant costs and eliminating premium fees on a wide range of transactions. Our experience shows schools can save XX% in transaction fees alone. If you’d like to find out exactly how much you could save, give us a call and we’d be delighted to undertake a review against your existing costs.

Esenda’s integrated payment system can form part of your current billing and accounting processes for seamless implementation and automatic reconciliation, saving hours of manual work in the finance office.

Furthermore, we know schools can spend days accounting for payments that fall slightly short of the invoiced amount. Esenda will automatically detect those shortfalls and top up the remaining funds to make sure the payment matches the invoice.

Esenda offers a wide range of currencies and payment methods and these options can be tailored to each school. Payments can be made through bank transfers, foreign exchange or via credit/debit card options. Get in contact to find out what options and currencies we have available.

Esenda has the unique ability to be integrated into your current systems through your MIS, invoice or billing provider. We will tailor our solution to meet your needs. Alternatively, you have the option to provide the service as a stand-alone platform, importing or uploading the invoices that need to be settled.
