Paymerang Recaps Innovation in Education Conference in Philadelphia

On May 5th and 6th, Paymerang held its inaugural Innovation in Education Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Schools throughout the Northeast gathered to network with Paymerang team members and others in their profession.

To kick off the conference, attendees met for an engaging night of networking with peers and the Paymerang team. The next day, attendees gathered for a full day of dynamic speaking sessions from keynote speakers, including industry experts and thought leaders.

Nasser Chanda, CEO of Paymerang, welcomed guests with a discussion about the current state of education in America and the global automation environment.

“Today’s young people will, in the coming years, be governing the world,” Chanda said. “Their thoughts and actions will be shaped by what they know and have experienced, making education, in many ways, one of the best predictors of a nation’s future success.”

Chanda explained the role that business offices play in the future of education. The business office is a strong force in connecting the school community and helps navigate challenges in education, including academic performance, teacher staffing, student enrollment, and more. Paymerang is proud to partner with schools across the nation, empowering business offices to focus on these issues.

Throughout the day, attendees learned about optimizing their use of Paymerang’s platform through Invoice and Payment Automation speaker sessions. Later, they learned about fraud prevention and mitigation from the FBI. This session was relevant as education is the top industry affected by fraudulent attacks, according to a 2021 Baker Hostetler Data Security and Incident Report.

Additionally, participants went inside Paymerang’s Innovation Studio for a sneak peek at upcoming products and gave feedback that we will implement as we further develop new technology. Customer feedback is important to Paymerang, and we demonstrate through our industry-leading Net Promoter Score.

The conference wrapped up with an interactive scavenger hunt around Philadelphia. Before dismissing, those in attendance shared how they will implement the new strategies they learned during the conference to improve their business office. They left inspired and empowered by the information they learned during these unique speaking sessions.

Paymerang values our education clients, and we thank them for helping us make our inaugural Innovation in Education Conference a success! We look forward to expanding our user conferences into the hospitality, healthcare, senior living, public sector, and manufacturing industries in the future.
