Independent Payment Solutions Advisor Arrow Payments Adds Transact As Recommended University Payments Solution

Companies Collaborate to Advance Mutual Goal of Simplifying Payments for Higher Education

PHOENIX (August 26, 2021) – As colleges and universities increasingly shift the responsibility of payment processing and PCI compliance to third-party solution providers (TPSPs), Arrow Payments, an independent payment solutions advisor and PCI-qualified integrator, has added Transact to its portfolio of recommended university payments solutions.

“Large institutions have decentralized merchant locations and processing systems. These challenges are often combined with limited time and resources, and the difficulty finding affordable talent with payments, technology and PCI expertise,” said Bryan Jurewicz, chief operations and revenue officer, Arrow Payments. “That’s where we come in. Arrow assists institutions with third party vendor assessments, selection, setup, training, and support for payment solutions, like Transact’s, that are fully PCI compliant. Campuses get the benefit of a team of experts, the latest technologies for their particular needs, and most importantly, peace of mind.”

With more than $45 billion in facilitated payments annually for more than 12 million customers across 1,300 campuses, Transact is the leader in innovative credential and payment solutions for a connected campus. Through Transact’s relationship with Arrow Payments, institutions can obtain secure university payment processing systems and comprehensive support.

“Both Transact and Arrow are focused on simplifying payments for higher education,” said Mike Sullivan, vice president, Transact. “The team at Arrow are independent, client-centric payments experts who help universities reduce complexity, scope, and processing costs while increasing revenue and custom-design of payment processing solutions. We are pleased to be added to their list of recommended solutions and to work collaboratively with them across technologies to better serve our mutual clients, colleges and universities.”
