From cost to capability: How technology is transforming the higher education experience

In 2023, Australian universities face a challenging landscape due to shifting student needs, changing demographics, and the need for diversified revenue streams. Ecommerce and payment technologies are emerging as game-changers in this scenario, benefiting a wide range of stakeholders—prospective and current students, administrators, staff, and alumni. 

These advanced platforms facilitate easy and quick transactions for services ranging from course materials to alumni donations, thereby enhancing the student experience. Automated systems and intelligent technologies streamline payment processes, reducing operational complexities and costs. Additionally, data analytics tools enable universities to capture student information, allowing for personalised services, targeted marketing, and customised academic experiences. These platforms also tackle “shadow finance” by providing financial transparency and accountability that traditional systems often miss. Furthermore, robust security features ensure financial safety, building trust across the university community.

In this ever-evolving landscape, embracing advanced ecommerce and payment platforms has emerged as a strategic asset for universities. This event will delve into key questions, including:

  • How are universities today leveraging ecommerce to personalise the student experience?
  • What strategies can universities adopt to streamline payment processing and reduce operational costs?
  • How can eCommerce platforms aid universities in mitigating risk and enhancing financial transparency across their institutions?
