Release 39 - New Tuition Fee Billing module and OpenApply integration
The SchoolsBuddy team have release a brand new module to handle Tuition Fee Billing for customers using OpenApply and ManageBac! Our new OpenApply integration combines new applicant records with current student records from ManageBac so that you can invoice and record payments for all your school community.
How it works: Billing information such as who's responsible for payment, corporate contacts and payment plan types can be collected, stored and updated in OpenApply at the time of application or re-enrolment.
Use extensive filters to select the right students to bill - do they receive a scholarship? Who pays for lunches? SchoolsBuddy handles all these criteria. You can also reduce the standard fees before generating an invoice to account for any discounts needed.
After invoicing, raise a credit note to reduce fees, or record receipts to email parents when payment has been received. You can also resend invoices, credit notes and receipts as needed. Our handy invoice dashboard gives you all the tools you need to see and chase up unpaid invoices.
