PHOENIX–(COMMERCIAL THREAD)–Today Transact, a leader in innovative identification and payment solutions for a connected campus, announced that it has been awarded the Ethos Connected badge from Ellucian, a leading provider of technological solutions for higher education. This badge certifies that Transact now offers real-time integration of the Ellucian banner for payments using Ellucian Ethos.

“The value of this integration for our campus partners is hard to overstate,” said Peter Scharnell, senior director of product management at Transact. “This ensures that using our systems, students and administrators are able to process payments and see those transactions reflected in their Student Information Systems (SIS) and Financial Systems (FI) in real time.” . This helps them deliver an improved and streamlined student experience and provides access to solid data for institutional priorities such as student counseling and retention.

Ellucian’s widely used open and flexible technology ecosystem provides scalable and efficient solutions for modern campuses. The integration of Ethos based on Transact Exchange strengthens Transact’s partnership with Ellucian and facilitates a seamless user experience.
