Direct Link to Your Database

Our integrated API's are able to link up to your student and staff database. This means a quick joining process as their details are already in the system. This can be a lifesaver during Fresher's as it saves your team admin time and reduces queues in reception.

Remove Payment Barriers

We offer a wide range of payment options for your members, with everything from Direct Debit to Recurring Card Payment (RCP).

Did you know that International students without a UK bank account can't use Direct Debit? By offering RCP you are making your facilities available to an otherwise forgotten-about market of International students. 

Check out how the University of Portsmouth has taken advantage of our Payment Gateway here.

"Recurring card payments provide a much easier method to pay for memberships for everyone. Having the option to add multiple cards means less time is spent on making payments, and more time can be spent on enjoying our facilities."

Sporting and Leisure facilities within higher education settings are playing a bigger role in where students choose to study. Active students are found to be happier, experience less anxiety, and report feeling more confident in finding a job after graduation, according to research conducted by BUCS. 

As a result, it’s no wonder we are seeing ‘Facilities Spend’ becoming a factor that’s taken into consideration within league tables such as The Complete University Guide league tables for 2023, including spending on sports facilities.

With more emphasis on leisure within higher education, and your departments having a more critical role than ever within your organisation, I am looking to support our higher education customers further, and my role will be crucial in that development. Book in a chat with me today!
