Here at IonTuition, we are passionate about making the student loan repayment process easier than ever before. By partnering with companies that opt to provide their employees with access to student loan repayment benefits, we work towards harnessing technology to make paying back student loans more intuitive and achievable.
100% Digital Communications
Communication is the heart of customer relations. Being able to connect to our users is essential to helping them succeed with their repayment.
Before the smart phone and reliable Internet access, companies leveraged phone calls, emails, and snail mail to relay important updates on customer accounts. Today, SMS alerts have become a popular choice for notifications. They’re helpful because they don’t clutter an inbox, they’re easily seen, and easily deleted. IonTuition includes custom text messages to keep users abreast of their current loan status.
Like most financial tools, we’re a software as a service. Our tool lives in the cloud and is accessible from any internet-enabled device. There are no physical IonTuition locations for users to access our services — we’re a digital entity, unlike a banking app that is supported by brick and mortar branch locations.
WebChat & Voice
Technology has the power of connecting our world with increasing ease. This connectivity means that there is more access for all to expert advice. Instead of spending money on meeting with a local CPA or another financial advisor, technology makes it possible to simply hop onto a platform like ours and talk to a counselor.
At IonTution, we added this important feature so that it is simple to chat or call an expert student loan counselor. This counselor can connect with student loan servicers to help set up new and improved repayment plans.
We implemented this feature into our platform because we understand the value of not feeling alone. Technology makes it possible for anyone to feel like they have help nearby. Rather than staying up late at night worrying about how to handle your student loans, speaking to a counselor can provide peace of mind.
Digital Refinancing Marketplace
Another way that technology helps improve student loan repayment is by making it simple to compare refinancing options. It can be intimidating to walk into a banking establishment and ask about refinancing. With technology, this can be done from the comfort of home, allowing for more time to research available options. This gives you the power to make the very best financial decision for your future, without feeling the pressure of a sales pitch.
At IonTution, we have implemented this feature into our platform so that searching for refinancing options is even easier. We provide a network of vetted refinancing lenders to compare; that way, you know you are working with an established financial institution. Through our platform, you can compare rates and terms to find the best fit for your particular needs.
Technology Can Improve The Future Of Student Loans
With student loan debt numbers rising, it is imperative that companies start implementing assistance with student loan repayment. The advent of improved technology means repaying student loans is becoming more manageable. If you are an employer who is interested in offering an added benefit of student loan assistance to your staff, please reach out to our team to learn more about our unique platform. We can help your employees leverage technology to create a better plan for their financial future.
