Alliance Migrates All RenWeb Online Payment Processing to FACTS Management/Nelnet Business Solutions

February 22, 2010 – RenWeb School Management Software and FACTS Management/Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) today announced a partnership that will provide RenWeb member schools the security, reliability and speed of the industry leader in K-12 online payment processing.

Under the agreement, FACTS/NBS will provide its secure online payment processing engine to service all of RenWeb’s online payment products, including Pay Now for parents’ online school payments, and Pay Easy for scheduled debits of parent credit card and bank accounts. This will also enable RenWeb to launch other new online payment services, which will be announced in the coming weeks.

A major benefit of the partnership, FACTS/NBS will securely provide RenWeb customers accelerated credit card payment processing speeds, reducing the credit card payment deposit intervals down to two days from the time a parent makes a credit card payment to when it deposits in the school’s bank account.

“This partnership with education’s most trusted and respected payment processor represents a major coup for RenWeb schools,” said Brad Lee, CEO of RenWeb. “Now RenWeb’s online payment customers will enjoy the same security, reliability, convenience and speed provided by FACTS/NBS to thousands of schools. Plus, the new two-day credit card deposit interval FACTS/NBS will provide represents a significant improvement over our current credit card intervals.”

FACTS/NBS currently provides payment processing and tuition management for nearly 5,000 schools. The company’s control procedures are audited under the SAS 70 audit standard (an audit designed for service organizations like FACTS/NBS), and its data security is audited in compliance with applicable PCI data security standards. FACTS/NBS is a member of NACHA (the automated clearing house rule-making body), the Midwest Payment Exchange (one of NACHA’s 19 regional associations), and the Council for Electronic Billing & Payment (one of NACHA’s leadership councils).
