Who are Fortuna’s target customers?
- Customers are those applying to MBA programs across the globe (applicants).
- 50-60% are Americans in their mid-20’s who define themselves as professionals.
Challenges They Faced
Customer affordability: Fortuna wanted a payment solution that would make their big-ticket product/service more affordable and attainable to their customers.
Manual Billing: Fortuna used a manual billing system where invoices would be issued and payments were broken down into 3 separate installments, tracked via a spreadsheet.
Discounts: In lieu of a formalized payment plan, Fortuna felt that they needed to offer a discount to customers.
Why Fortuna Admissions Chose Splitit
Streamlining the payments process: Fortuna lacked any kind of formal payments process and the company often had customers who did not follow through on their full payments. Easily integrated and implemented, Splitit is the perfect solution as it formalizes the payments process and ensures full payment collection from clients.
Payment flexibility: Fortuna’s services are costly and so offering installment payments makes their services more accessible to a wider range of clients.
Accessibility: Splitit’s solution is intuitive and easy to use. It does not involve any daunting registration or application process.
Global cross-border solution: Fortuna has numerous international clients who need to be able to make payments from anywhere in the world. As a cross-border solution, Splitit was a perfect fit.
Approval rate: Because customers use an existing debit or credit card, Splitit offers a 100% approval rate (when they have the full available credit).
- Decreased administration time.
- Decreased number of non-paying customers.
