TouchNet® is the leading provider of campus commerce solutions for Higher Education. For over 20 years, TouchNet has focused on higher education, providing simple access to complex systems.
World class software is the result of partnering with forward thinking universities to automate sound business practices. University officers know what they need and help identify those processes ripe for automation. Through an extensive client community, we find best of breed business processes and automate them within our software. Then the rubber meets the road. Together with our university partners, we put those automated practices to work, refine them further, and then share the best practices with other universities. One thing we learned many years ago is that higher education is not a market, it's a community.
TouchNet U.Commerce® software and services are available for most countries. In addition to integration with campus ERP systems, TouchNet also works with other higher education software providers through our TouchNet Ready partner program.
Strong integration brings all of the important systems together. A complete commerce management system connects your ERP system, finance system, and other applications into a single payment solution. TouchNet U.Commerce supports your local banking relationships by connecting to a large number of banking systems and credit card processors. We also support a large number of currencies.
More than just integration, it's real-time integration that's the key. The moment a payment transaction is authorized, your student records, general ledger, or other system of record is updated and in sync. No batch files to upload or maintain. No multiple systems of record. Imagine one centralized payment system for all payments across a university campus, online and in person.
TouchNet is committed to advancing opportunities for the neighbors in our community. We provide support and corporate leadership with direct contributions, community service, and in-kind donations to the United Way of Greater Kansas City and to Heart to Heart International.
TouchNet supports Heart to Heart International, a leading provider of medical aid to people around the world. Each year, Heart to Heart's humanitarian work touches millions of people in the United States and around the world through health care development and crisis response initiatives.
TouchNet provides ongoing technology, systems support, and services for Heart to Heart's secure online giving. We absorb all credit card processing fees so Heart to Heart can receive 100 percent of donor contributions. TouchNet employees work between 500 and 700 combined hours every year at the Heart to Heart distribution center. Each year employees donate individually through our dedicated internal fundraising campaign, and each contribution is matched with a TouchNet corporate donation.
Nearly 90 percent of the contributions to the United Way of Greater Kansas City go to programs and services in the Kansas City metro. TouchNet’s support of the United Way aids their focus on education, promoting financial stability, and improving health to help all people achieve their potential.
