Digital payments in education
Saving time for better outcomes
Reduce administration time and give teachers back more than 2000 hours for classroom learning. Also take up to $2.6 billion in cash out of Australian schools’ system. How? By digitising school payments to drive efficiency, reduce risks and improve the experience of students and parents.
Deloitte recently conducted an investigation into the changing nature of payments within the education sector, with a particular focus on the use of electronic payment mechanisms in primary and secondary schools.
Our findings corroborate anecdotal market observations indicating there is considerable benefit in eliminating outdated manual processes. Moving to digital mechanisms in non-teaching administration activities greatly improves efficiency, effectiveness and convenience, and lets stakeholders focus on higher-value activities, in particular enabling teachers to spend more time on improving learning outcomes in the classroom.
