Many schools experience challenges around disconnected SIS and financial management systems, with their issues ranging from not having a single system of record to payment reconciliation being difficult and time-consuming. FACTS Premier Billing solves these frustrating issues by combining every school billing necessity into one experience.
FACTS schools who use Premier Billing benefit from a single experience for tuition payments, school lunch, childcare, incidental fees, family demographic management, and the application/enrollment/re-enrollment process.
