  • Villanova University has partnered with PaymentWorks to handle all onboarding of all new Payees. PaymentWorks is a cloud-based software that is free of charge to our Payees. This software lets you enter all your information about your company or as an individual and allows this information to be reviewed quickly and efficiently by the University. This also helps reduce the risk of fraud for both the University and the Payee by ensuring information is accurate and verified as required. Updating your information is done quickly as you can request all updates through PaymentWorks as well. Payees will also be able to monitor their invoices and see exactly when their payments will be processed for payment. Once set-up in PaymentWorks, you will be able to link to other Universities and companies that already use this system for their vendor management.
