FastDirect Has Ecommerce!
FastDirect Communications has partnered with Pace to make it easy for your school to accept credit card, debit card, and ACH (electronic checks) payments. Parents can easily pay for anything from tuition to yearbooks!
The parent-school connection is strengthened when parents are able to pay for a variety of school-related fees without having to leave FastDirect. All major credit cards and debit cards are accepted and payments can be sent directly from bank accounts (ACH). When a parent makes an electronic payment, the financial transaction file is updated in real time, requiring no data entry by the school.
In addition to viewing FastDirect’s Finance transactions and balances, administrators also have access to robust reports on the Pace Insight portal – a business intelligence engine that gathers disparate payment data and transforms it into actionable information. You choose how you want the data aggregated into intuitive reports. Follow a transaction from initiation to deposit; making bank reconciliation a breeze. Your school has access to custom and turn-key reports!
Pace is a premiere financial technology company providing fully-integrated access and business intelligence engines that create an elegant, fully-compliant payment interface for your school. A robust data warehouse, bank reconciliation tool, and enterprise reporting suite transform disparate data points into actionable analytics for your school.
