Pay360 – Improving student experience, and efficiency & security of payments.
Jon Cole, Head of Management Information Services, Morley College and Charlie Smart, Business Applications Manager, University of Hertfordshire

In today’s world, there are an unprecedented number of ways to make and receive payments.  Traditional methods like cheques are reducing on their own, cash is reducing but not at the rate a lot of organisations would like, while payments with phones, apps, cuff links and rings are increasing.  How does a university adapt quickly enough to match their customers’ needs, without costs rising and efficiency falling. Oh, and there is PCI DSS to satisfy along the way too.  University of Hertfordshire and Morley College will talk about some of the moves they have made to keep up with generation Z whilst improving student experience, efficiency and security, without needing to turn to a plethora of different suppliers.
