Here at Karri we genuinely care about change. We are proudly pioneering the cash free school movement and are passionately dedicated to removing the need for cash on school grounds, ultimately making learning environments safer for students and teachers alike.
Eliminating the need for cash on school grounds seems like an ideal situation right? Removing the stress of large amounts of cash on premises where there are hundreds of children seems like a total no-brainer. On paper, this may be the case, but it can be a daunting thought for any financial team to step away from what you know and swap over to a totally cashless system.
With Karri, creating a cash free environment does not have to be such a mammoth task for your school’s financial team. In fact, the Karri system halves your administrative time whilst creating a safer environment for both teachers and students.
As pioneers of the cash free school movement, Karri is here to unpack the basics on moving your school away from cash and onto an online, cash free, safe and secure system.
Let’s start at the very beginning…
What is Karri?
Karri is the only product currently in the school space that combines real-time messages, reminders, a secure payment platform and a comprehensive financial management system. Simply, Karri takes the hassle out of school payments. From civvies days to outings, to sports tours and school fees. Karri can be used for any and every school payment.
Karri is powered by Nedbank, meaning your money is ALWAYS secure.
How does it work for parents?
Karri is 100% free for parents to use. They simply download the app for free onto their smartphone, create a login and start making payments to the school. Parents will receive notifications when there is an upcoming payment, along with the details of the collection and the option to add a reminder to the calendar on their smartphone. Simple!
With a built-in chat feature on Karri’s app and a dedicated support team, your parents have access to assistance at any point should they need help.
How does it work for the school?
There are no hidden costs with Karri. It’s time to wave goodbye to your credit card machine, hefty bank deposit fees and painful reconciliations. By using Karri, you not only save hundreds of hours annually in time but also in money. Karri works on a sliding scale fee, therefore the more money you collect through the Karri app, the smaller the fee you pay. Plus, you can use the Karri system TOTALLY fee free until the end of October 2019 if your school banks with Nedbank. Find out more about this initiative by calling our support team on 021 300 1867.
