"The partnership with Trimdata has been a pleasure and has saved the Financial Services staff at Macomb much time and effort."
The time financial services staff used to spend processing and accounting for checks can now be invested in higher value work on behalf of Macomb’s students. Macomb students have the convenience of immediate access to funds for books before the start of classes. The students no longer have to wait for the processing and mailing of checks. Financial aid student traffic has doubled at the campus bookstore in the two years that this process has been in place.
"It is working wonderfully. We are getting very positive reviews from the students."
The arduous paper-based book voucher system, with multiple steps and chances for error, made the process of securing textbooks difficult for students and financial aid offices. The University's goal - streamline the process with an architecture that would meet their technical and security needs. For the Spring 2015 term. Johnson & Wales University implemented FA ~ Link for their 4 campuses.
