EFS ENHANCEMENTS MAKE YOUR DAY EASIER

EFS is continuously looking for ways to improve our products to make life easier for the users.  You may have noticed some changes.

  • We told you last month about the new Mobile Optimized Parent Payment Website which has many features that aid in making the payment process smooth and easy with less confusion.
  • You may notice a NEW Comment Box which allows a parent/payer to add a comment when making a payment (e.g. uniform size when paying for athletics, schedule dates when paying for Before & After School Care, etc.). This allows you to capture specific information from a particular purchase.
  • Another enhancement is in the Reports area. The Payment Item Configuration Report provides the school district an efficient way to verify settings of their payment items within the EFS system.

This is a static report that auto generates daily and as a result of this, a Daily Report will generate each business day regardless if there is payment activity or not. On days where payment activity does not take place, your reports will now display as “Inactive”.

If you have any questions about any of these enhancements, please contact us.
