SCT has introduced to the higher education market a cost-effective, seamlessly integrated solution to validate and process credit card payment transactions directly through Banner2000 administrative solutions. The process can be initiated through self-service Web modules, interactive voice response and other administrative transactions. The application is the result of the interface between SCTs Banner2000 for higher education and the TouchNet Payment Gateway.
The system routes the credit card payment and settlement information to a customers bank to be validated. It then provides the settlement transaction directly to the Banner2000 or Plus2000 database. This enables SCT customers to have a supported solution that keeps them in control of the transaction. SCT, Malvern, PA, (800) 223-7036, www.sctcorp.com.
