7 New Payment Features: Cash, Credit, Payment Plans, Late Fees, and More!

FinalForms Media

The FinalForms Team understands what schools need when they ask for new features. While past payment features covered the basic need to process online payments, there was a level of service that remained out-of-reach. 


The most recent round of Summer 2018 updates includes 7 major updates that transform FinalForms into a full service online payment system:

  1. Payment Documentation
  2. Multi-School Family Caps
  3. Partial Payment Status for Payment Plans
  4. External Payment Mode for Checks and Cash
  5. Late Fees
  6. Billing for Missing Equipment
  7. Improved Receipts for Parents

 

Julie Renner, Director of Operations, validated the Sales Team reports and Client requests for improvements. “In my 23 years as an educator, payment plans were always a headache. I knew FinalForms could help.” Renner coordinated with the Development Team to plot the plan for optimization. The enhancements are scheduled for delivery in July 2018.

When FinalForms CEO Clay Burnett returns from a conference or meeting, his first stop is often the track. Burnett’s boundless energy leads both teams and individuals to reaching heights beyond what most think possible.

Since 2015, Burnett’s tracksters racked up 6 State Championships, 2 Silver Medals, 2 Bronze Medals and 5 additional podium spots. Remarkably, the feats include a 3-peat in the Girls 4x800m and a 1600m State Record: 4:05.62.

Burnett is a cerebral, charismatic force to be reckoned with in any arena of competition. “My focus is maximizing potential when it counts the most,” states Burnett. His aura visibly brightens when peak performance is the topic.

“Clay’s ability to gauge competition, uncover weaknesses and utilize strengths is unique. He creates capable teams and boosts performance to an exaggerated level. He’s an admirable leader,” explains rival Coach Chris Ickes of Kenston High School.

During the same years Burnett earned statewide respect for his track program, he’s elevated FinalForms to the lead of the education technology industry. The FinalForms team of educators and peerless product quickly create enthusiastic advocates out of every day users. Burnett’s track record for business includes 6 consecutive years of triple-digit growth and a nearly perfect client retention report.

“I’m excited about what’s to come. We have revolutionary ideas on the whiteboard that will really open your eyes in the next few years. Stay tuned!” Burnett exclaims as he walks out the office door, back to the track.
