Kent receives double accolade for payment processing

Payment processing at the University and staff involved received a double accolade at the WPM Annual User Conference Awards 2015.

WPM are the process specialists and payment experts within the higher and further education sectors. The annual awards recognise the success of institutions and individuals who are achieving success with the WPM Payment Platform, and are developing payment acceptance best practice in the sector.

At the ceremony in Manchester, Neil Oliver, Assistant Director of Finance at the University, received an award to acknowledge his contribution over the years in engaging with other WPM users and hosting visitors wishing to learn about the University’s systems.

Holger Bollmann, Director at WPM said: ‘With so many fantastic examples of efficient and effective online payment acceptance in the HE and FE sector, it was extremely hard to recognise just a few standout individuals and institutions this year. I would like to wish warm congratulations to Neil for winning this award.’

The University also received an HE award nomination along with the Universities of the Arts London, Liverpool and Sheffield under the category of Payments Champion, which recognises institutions from the HE and the FE Sector making best use of their WPM systems and benefiting from their efficiencies.
