PayClearly, an automated payments solution, has partnered with N2N Services to give Higher Education institutions the ability to integrate their ERP systems with accounts payables, streamlining an otherwise time-consuming process.
A strategic partnership with N2N Services, a leading provider of integration systems for Higher Education, allows PayClearly the ability to offer a fully integrated accounts payables payment solution. Universities and colleges use complex ERP systems such as Banner, Colleague, Workday, Oracle and Jenzabar, among others, that contain data necessary to the AP departments daily tasks. This streamlined approach to payables can evolve a department’s processes to allow for a much higher level of efficiency, leading to great savings and revenue-earning rewards.
“Our purpose is to solve payment problems and make the payments process as easy as possible,” stated John Jamieson, Senior Vice President of Sales at PayClearly. “N2N’s simple integration into higher education ERP systems removes multiple, cumbersome steps for controllers, university accountants and all accounts payable staff, allowing for a one step process within one enterprise software. The process becomes truly seamless, leaving time on the table for other important tasks while saving the department money.”
“We are confident that our integration platform, Illuminate, combined with PayClearly’s solution will not only help higher educations’ accounts payables processes but also provide those departments with long-term financial savings,” said Danielle Whitney, N2N Services Vice President of Business Development . “N2Ns integration platform is built to positively affect campuses helping provide higher levels of technology for optimal operational efficiency.”

ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time electronic payment and banking solutions, today announced a strategic relationship with N2N Services, Inc., a leading platform provider for higher education systems integration. ACI will integrate its campus commerce system with N2N’s turnkey cloud integration platform, Illuminate, to improve students’ payment experiences. The need for higher education institutions to improve integration between payments and student information systems is highlighted by a recent Ovum survey, which showed that 88 percent of institutions had plans to do so in the next 12 months.
N2N’s Illuminate empowers its customers to create, manage, secure and monetize APIs, and build bridges between two APIs without any need for programming and additional infrastructure. With a network of more than 200 academic institutions, N2N is offering students and families the benefit of a comprehensive, simple payments experience with ACI’s campus commerce system. Through the N2N platform, higher education verticals will be able to connect their student information systems, including Ellucian™, Campus Management®, Peoplesoft® and Jenzabar® with ACI’s student payment portal and simplify payments while improving payments security. In addition, colleges and universities will be able to offer more ways to view and pay student bills, whether through modern mobile experiences, simplified account management or interest-free payment plans.
“We are committed to enabling enterprises of all sizes to participate, benefit from and compete in today’s digital economy enabled by APIs,” said Kiran Kodithala, CEO, N2N Services Inc. “Partnering with ACI on its solution for the higher education vertical will allow our customers to deliver more payment options to students and families, which will help reduce delinquent payments, make refunds easy and improve the overall payment experience. In the future, we hope to expand this program beyond higher education.”
“It’s neither easy nor convenient for students and parents to manage student payment accounts because they typically have to go through different websites to pay tuition bills in full, set up payment plans or resolve delinquent accounts,” said Andrew Sajeski, business leader, biller solutions, ACI Worldwide. “This partnership will deliver an innovative payment portal to all of the schools in N2N’s network and provide one place for payments, payment plans and delinquent collections.”
More than 300 higher education institutions trust ACI Worldwide for improving student satisfaction and payments security with its campus commerce systems. On average, higher education institutions report a 24 percent increase in student satisfaction after partnering with ACI Worldwide, according to independent third-party research.
