ParentPay / ESS Update

ESS are delighted to be able to share some exciting news with you.

Following the recent clearance from the Competition and Markets Authority, we announced yesterday that ParentPay Group has now formally completed the acquisition of ESS from Montagu Private Equity. A copy of the full release is available to read here.

ParentPay Group is Europe’s leading provider of cashless payment and parental engagement solution for schools. ParentPay started the cashless payment revolution in schools in 2004 and has since simplified the lives of millions of parents and streamlined the payment operations of thousands of schools by removing cash from the classroom.

ParentPay and ESS have highly complementary products, people and values. Our aim remains to deliver easy-to-use yet powerful, well-supported products to help schools operate more efficiently and effectively, ultimately to create more time for learning and to improve education outcomes.

ParentPay has a reputation for continuous innovation and excellent customer service. By joining forces with ParentPay, we can provide a more comprehensive offering in the future and we expect to accelerate innovation through shared expertise and increased investment in product development.

Our teams will continue to operate as normal, and you can contact us in the usual way. We’ll be sharing more information with all our customers and partners in the Autumn term.

If you have any immediate questions please contact your ESS contact in the normal manner.
