Monday, November 18, 2013

UNCW was recently featured on TouchNet LIVE! an online video webcast that highlights progressive colleges and universities presenting their campus commerce successes. This recent episode on November 12 included UNCW’s Carole Wilson, who explained how the university has lowered merchant fees, expanded and leveraged the Marketplace platform and reduced risk and costs with the TouchNet Ready Program.

Wilson, a systems accountant in the Financial Systems Office, has worked collaboratively with Information Technology Systems to provide innovative online credit card opportunities to the campus for departmental revenue-generating programs while strengthening UNCW’s compliance with the credit card industry’s PCI standards. Since 2008, UNCW has implemented 53 sites that accept credit card payments via the TouchNet Marketplace platform. TouchNet is also UNCW’s solution for paperless student tuition and fees’ billing, eRefunds and student payment plans.
