Strategies and Proven Methods for Selecting a Trusted Third-Party Solution Provider
Colleges and universities are increasingly shifting the responsibility of payment processing and PCI compliance to Third-Party Solution Providers. These providers help lower PCI scope for schools and provide value-added services to save time, increase security, and lower processing costs. However, choosing the wrong provider can result in problems that detract from their value.
Join us as we discuss the benefits of leveraging Third-Party Solution Providers and examples from campus leaders of their strategies in selecting trusted providers.
