Facts Tuition Management helps school with attendance, billing, enrollment, parent notices, newsletters, teacher professional development, and website development. Schools are charged for each additional functionality they use. At times, the software can be click-intensive, requiring multiple steps to get something done. Facts Tuition Management is intended to be used by everyone at the school – picture teachers with iPad in hand.

TUIO’s affordable and easy-to-use solution focuses on school management. Simplifying and automating administrative tasks for your school. TUIO includes tuition management, enrollment management, a student information system, and a fundraising platform at no extra cost. That’s why organizations across North America are choosing TUIO!

The difference between TUIO and FACTS tuition management

No longer burdened by traditionally clunky administrative processes. 
Now, you need to choose the right one for your school and parents!

Facts Tuition Management is a division of a large publicly traded company called Nelnet Inc. With so many departments and products, technical support can be slow and unresponsive. If you don't need support and are tech-savvy, FACTS might be for you! As a robust software, FACTS has a full spectrum of all the features and functions a school could dream of. The features are each a separate division and therefore are separate costs.

TUIO's only division is providing you with the best school management solution.

With TUIO, school administrators can easily send invoices, create payment options, manage accounts receivable, automate the collections, and report on transactions through a user-friendly interface. Parents access TUIO online through a parent portal where they can view outstanding and future invoices, update payment preferences, pay fees, automate payments, view payment history, and access receipts. Our online system reconciles payments in real-time to provide schools with accurate financial snapshots.

“We have used several other systems prior to TUIO, including other electronic systems. I can say with confidence, nothing compares to TUIO. Our families did not like the previous systems. We have received positive feedback from families about TUIO and if the parents have any questions, they can ask TUIO directly. Luckily we have not ran into many problems!”

Save time with good software

Ever spend more time learning a new tool than doing your job? Ever take more time troubleshooting tech issues than doing something manually? That should not be the case!

With TUIO, your staff and parents start using the software after a one-hour live onboarding session. Included in the software is ongoing live customer support. Comparatively, last year, Facts Tuition Management launched a new program for K-12 professional educators to provide in-depth coaching sessions for teachers and administrators.

“Unlike our last billing system, TUIO listens to what we think would help make their program more convenient for us and they actually see what they can do.”

Why school administrators prefer TUIO over Facts

Bigger isn’t always better. Make sure your parents and staff can actually use the system you implement! Keep it smart but simple. 

With TUIO, both staff and families receive live in-person support from a TUIO rep. Yes, that’s real humans in real time! Support is accessible by chat, phone, or e-mail. We pride ourselves in prompt, helpful solutions.

Not only is TUIO more affordable than Facts Tuition Management -- we waive all NSF fees, resolve failed parent payments on your behalf, and send same day business payouts, instead of in 3 - 7 days like FACTS.

Use TUIO risk-free, with no monthly or annual fees.

Our intuitive dashboard makes starting your school with TUIO a breeze. Our software is so easy to use that our onboarding process only requires a 1-hour meeting. By keeping it simple, we keep staff and parents happy - and save you time!
