Educational Computer Systems, Inc. (ECSI) was recently selected as the new Student Loan Billing Servicer for the University of Pittsburgh, a large public University located in Pittsburgh, PA.

The University was currently utilizing ECSI’s Electronic Promissory Note Solution. As a result of the positive experience and successes they were enjoying with ECSI, the University of Pittsburgh decided to expand the existing relationship and utilize ECSI’s Stand-A-Loan (SAL) Solution to service their entire student loan portfolio.

“The reasons we selected ECSI are mainly due to the positive relationship we had established with them, along with their technology, support, and service,” Dennis DeSantis, Associate Vice Chancellor, Student Financial Services at the University, said. “We are looking forward to the integration of all of our processes to improve staff efficiency and streamline services to our borrowers and alumni.”

“The University of Pittsburgh has been a school that I have personally pursued for over 15 years,” said John Lynch, President and CEO of ECSI. “It means the world to me that we can now include them in the ECSI family of clients. Our Electronic signature process for promissory notes helped prove to Pitt that our technology is advanced and delivers value, especially when integrated with our core loan servicing platform. We look forward to a long and lasting relationship with this fine institution.”
