Private Schools Found a New Revenue Stream Jan 10

Private Schools in North America Found a New Revenue Stream

There is a new breed of lightweight full-featured school billing software beginning to raise eyebrows, and it’s causing schools to rethink how they do collections. Schools that previously outsourced their tuitions are turning around and finding better options for performing tuitions collections, cheaper, and simpler. Private schools in North America now have options for taking back the millions of dollars that previously went to third party companies.

Here’s how: Outsourcing companies are charging about $40.00 to families over the tuition cost of sending their children to private school. But a new breed of much less expensive software has risen and is beginning to hack away at these behemoths.

EduTuit SFS is a complete full-featured school payment software. It still automates all the tasks outsourcing companies perform, but costs up to 75% less. Some clever schools are switching to the new system, yet charging parents the same amount as the previous year, netting schools as much as $30,000 per year or more on their balance sheet. Parents manage their own accounts, and schools can print reports or export data to their ledgers.

The software isn’t just for private schools, but public schools are just as interested in the software system. Schools can use the customizable features to dress-up the site in their colors, graphics, and text, giving it a personalized feel. It can be linked back to the schools primary website or be used as their stand-alone site. One school in Colorado found EduTuit SFS useful for billing parents for STEM supplies. Parents can be optionally compelled to pay for everything in order to complete enrollment, and if they haven’t paid the school then the system will continue to send reminders to pay. Other schools love the usefulness of the Field-Trip system, which broadcasts announcements to parents, who can also pay online. Print a report on the day of the field-trip and know exactly who has paid and who hasn’t. In addition there are many other features, such as online credit card or ACH payments, fundraisers, and a school store where schools can sell anything online 24 hours per day.

Schools wanting an alternative to Smart Tuition, Facts Management, or Rediker may want to take a good look at EduTuit SFS School Software. It’s making tuitions collections easier and much cheaper.

Public schools wanting to automate enrollment, charge parents for fees, field-trips, STEM, sell things, or run a fundraiser, should also look into it.

Blog post by Mark Weber Dec 20

Johnny Juarez had a music school called Rock Zone in suburban Buffalo, New York. Students would come to the Rock Zone weekly for music lessons, and they (or their parents) would be responsible for paying for those lessons. As a business owner, musician, and marketer, Johnny had a lot on his mind. It was hard to keep track of who paid what when for music lessons. If only Johnny had known about EduTuit’s CFS—“Course Financial System.” It’s a smart way to handle the collection of tuition payments from students. EduTuit’s CFS serves a very helpful function to any school (or business) charging students, clients or customers tuition and other fees. CFS doesn’t require any downloads or installations; instead, CFS is a customizable, secure pay site so you can take payments over the Internet for course transactions. CFS has many benefits, including its powerful auto-pay scheduler, automated billing and invoicing, as well as an opportunity to sell stuff online in a school store. As a stand-alone web portal, CFS works on its own or can interface with your existing website. In addition, EduTuit’s CFS allows you to design, schedule, and, most importantly, sell custom courses for anything. Want to offer online painting lessons, anger management seminars, or divorce counseling? CFS is the way to get paid online in a professional, easy-to-use manner. With several great features, EduTuit’s CFS can truly help people with their online billing needs. Hi Victor, It's a good thing you're offering! -Mark Weber

K-12 Independent School Facts Tuition Makes a Full Recovery Jan 23

If the parents at your school are paying an outsourcing company $43 per year to make tuition payments, then your school can recover 75% of that money today by switching to EduTuit as their payment processor and continuing to charge parents the same amount. This leaves $33 per family to be redistributed how the school chooses.

A school with 1000 families can recover $33,000 per year by making the switch.

Schools Save Tens Of Thousands By Changing School Billing Systems Jan 17

Outsourcing tuitions collections was a phenomenon of the past twenty years which many schools are now rethinking and replacing with leased school payment software, alone or as an addendum to their school management system.  Schools who outsource their tuition collections, enrollments, and school billing systems can take back up to $30,000 or more per year.

So many schools are abandoning the full service outsourcing model and looking for simpler more efficient alternatives. This is why we spent years in development and created EduTuit School Financial System (SFS), to address this real need. EduTuit is a free enrollment, scheduling, and billing system for schools. And with EduTuit each school gets their own unique web presence which is highly customizable using the school’s colors, logos, banners, pictures, and messages.

            Free school management software
            Personalize for your school
            Powerful and versatile
            Field trip manager
            Scheduled billing
            School store
            Fundraising
            Reporting
            Invoicing


Schools can decidedly configure EduTuit to charge parents the sum of what they paid in the previous year, including the costs parents paid to the outsourcing companies, and then redistribute the difference into the school or pass back a portion to the parents.  EduTuit only charges $10 per student, whereas outsourcing companies charge as much as $40 - $50 per family.  A school with 1,000 students can recover $20,000 - $30,000 per year this way.  Everybody saves money and that impacts schools directly by having the versatility to redistribute the income, instead of leaving it to an outside company.

Resuming your tuitions collections through EduTuit is easy.  It was designed to shift a majority of the work-load onto the parents to manage their own accounts.  No additional staff is needed, no IT department, only an internet connection and a single administrator.  “This is how our vision of the internet works for schools in the future: Schools sign-up for a service and parents pay for it, parents make their payments online and the monies go directly to schools.”  Existing enrollment databases can be imported by EduTuit, and new enrollments usually can be done in 30 seconds or less.  It’s virtually no more work than before, and it’s a huge savings.  Technical support is included in the cost, and everything is hosted on our award winning partners’ secure servers.

Other receivables such as lunches, field trips, fundraisers, school store items, or any miscellaneous fees can all be paid by parents online.  There is no other system with the power and flexibility of EduTuit SFS.   Sign-up now for the current school year or start planning for the next.  Give us a call today to find out how we can help you take back your tuitions collections.

How To Toggle Autopay Nov 24

Normally parents will adjust their autopay status themselves, but some schools may have elected to make autopay mandatory. Therefore they may need to toggle autopay off for some parents. Simply check the parent from the appropriate box and click [Update]. Parents in the top box have autopay on, and parents in the bottom box have autopay off.
