"The Online Store has been quick and easy to implement providing secure financial transactions at a low cost to the college. We have been able to serve our diverse range of customers more efficiently and effectively and the pressures on our enrolment processes during the busy September period have been eased. Since going live last month, the demand for using the store internally has increased, with new ideas and projects being developed daily. The college originally purchased the store to help with administration with it's full cost and distance learning courses, as well as its commercial activities."
Rachel Jones, Vice-Principal, Warwickshire College
"The Online Store has allowed us to, with a minimum of cost and effort, provide a simple and effective service to our internal stakeholders to allow them to take payment for their goods and services online. This is fundamental to our vision of a customer service-driven, professional and leading institution and we would now not be without this service. We look forward to driving the Online Store forward with a number of initiatives to make best use of our internal resources and expand the range of items and services which can be purchased."

The E-Payment solution has proved to be resilient and reliable and the knowledgeable technical support team helped us to launch the project within a very short period of time. The fact that our Customers can make payments at any time of day or night, from any location has been of a huge benefit, both to them and to us."

"WPM successfully guided De Montfort University through the development set-up and activation of an online payment portal for the collection of monies from our student population. During the development phase and the ongoing use of the live system we have found WPM to be both responsive and attentive when tweaks or modifications to our processes were required. We have found their professional knowledge and experience in the sphere of Internet payment collection to be invaluable."
