‘Emergency Cash payments now happen in 30 minutes when they used to take a week’

BNU has taken a long term approach to the deployment of JS Group student finance tools. Their relationship with the JS Group started in 2014 when they adopted the Aspire Credit tool to fund targeted students to purchase course specific resources. Then in 2019 they started to use the Aspire Cash tool because they found the allocation of cash support to complicated to administer.

‘Emergency Cash payments now happen in 30 minutes when they used to take a week’ said Dan Gerrish – senior student well-being and engagement officer. ‘The Aspire Cash tool takes away a significant administrative burden and gives us real visibility about what students spend the money.’
