Hank Payments Continues to Expand Its Education Platform Usage with New College Win

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – December 14, 2023) – Hank Payments Corp. (TSXV: HANK) (“Hank” or the “Company”), an emerging North American leader in the Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) market with a platform that modernizes budgets and payments for enterprises and consumers is pleased to announce the signing of a contract for its education product platform (“Hank EDU“) with an Oklahoma based college with annual enrolments exceeding 3,000 students.

The college will initially launch Hank’s proprietary student credit balance disbursements called FAST FUNDS for remittances to students. The FAST FUNDS product will replace the college’s previous solution, thereby improving the productivity, cost-effectiveness and security of the current process.

The FAST FUNDS disbursement product will provide students with multiple options on how they receive their disbursements:

  • Within minutes using Direct to Debit card or prepaid card
  • Within minutes using Direct to PAYPAL Account
  • Within days using Bank Transfer
  • Within 5 to 10 days using check

The Company expects that its FAST FUNDS product will reduce the colleges disbursement expense by up to 70%. FAST FUNDS will also reduce the staff requirements to process disbursements by minimizing check production. Integration will commence in January and the college is expected to launch in the coming months.

Michael Hilmer, Chairperson and CEO commented, “Our material funnel is starting to deliver the closings we expected, and we are delighted that this college wants to launch early in the new year.”
