Minimal Accounting and Administration Required
Flexischools provides complete cashless management - we collect and distribute the funds, and perform refunds to parents as required. This is the most time-consuming aspect of running a cashless system, and other providers push this onto the school.

Flexischools looks after all of the operations, technology, and distribution of funds to various accounts. Flexischools also processes refunds to parents as required.
