Customer story: JS Group
JS Group integrates Payit™ into their Aspire platform to support students’ bursary payments.
JS Group have developed one of the leading platforms to support issuance of student bursaries. They have integrated Payit into their Aspire platform to improve the ‘last mile’ of this service – the payment – to support a better student & university experience.
Staff no longer have to manually collect, verify, update or process student bank account details, freeing up this resource for other workstreams.
Unlike traditional payment methods, Payit means that there is no requirement to hold, store and destroy student bank details.
As payments can be issued each semester rather than one lump sum, Payit can help mitigate the loss of funds that occurs when students leave before the end of their studies.
Funds can be made available in real time, transforming the student experience.
Payit enables students to choose the account they draw the funds into at the point of receipt. This flexibility ensures the student can always access the money, even if they have account restrictions.
Funds can be made available in stages, helping students to budget and maintain financial wellness.
Through the use of the Payit API solution, JS Group has developed Aspire Cash, resulting in a better payment experience, reduced administrative costs and improved understanding of how cash awards are used by students.
Through working with Payit and adopting innovative payment technology, we have been able to develop a solution that could save universities between 5-15% of the total cost of their bursary administration and programmes*. Over and above that, by using Aspire Cash universities can provide a better and more responsive experience forPeter GrayJS GroupCEO and Chair
