ParentPay and Pebble to revolutionise school finance
Pebble, provider of the school finance solution, Fund Manager, have signed-up to the ParentPay Partner Integration Framework within 24 hours of its launch at BETT 2013.
This exciting development will mean customers of Pebble and ParentPay will soon have access to a highly efficient one stop shop for managing private funds in school.
ParentPay, the market leader in online payment for schools, announced the Partner Integration Framework at BETT 2013, giving new and existing partners access to a comprehensive set of APIs for bi-directional data exchange to enable secure and seamless integration between systems.
The framework means schools will benefit from more tightly integrated solutions, reducing the errors and admin burden associated with manual data imports and replication.
Ryan Green, Managing Director, Pebble commented: “This is a positive step forward for both businesses. I’m excited that we are the first partner to be announced under the new Partner Integration Framework. We’ll aim to make this a truly comprehensive integration between Fund Manager and ParentPay. Our goal will be to provide significant administrative savings to customers that use both our systems.”
ParentPay will work seamlessly with Pebble’s Fund Manager so that customers can create new payment items in either system, report payments made against individual items, download payment settlement data and fast track bank reconciliation.
Clint Wilson, Chief Executive, ParentPay added: “This agreement is an excellent example of both Pebble and ParentPay’s commitment to ensure we are delivering efficient cutting edge solutions for school finance, payment collection and income management.”
“The Partner Integration Framework is an important evolution in our product offering, ensuring our partners gain controlled but effective access to data and services, whilst providing maximum value to our customers.
I’m delighted that Pebble will be working with us under this new framework.”
