DivideBuy boosts revenue and customer base for education firm, E-Careers

E-Careers is an education institution that provides industry recognised courses and up-skilling solutions to individuals and organisations. Serving a fast-changing world, E-Careers ensure innovation is at the heart of everything they do; resulting in programmes that are engaging, effective, accessible and affordable.

The Challenge

E-Careers is a leading provider of industry-recognised courses and upskilling solutions for individuals and organisations. This global education brand aims to provide greater opportunities for customers by allowing them to spread the cost, rather than paying for training in one lump sum. It had worked with another consumer finance company previously but wanted greater accessibility and affordability for students, and to collaborate with a payment provider with a similar ethos. 

Among its requirements were a payment solution that allowed them to accept a wider range of students, reducing cart abandonment rates and boosting user experience – plus greater re-payment flexibility. That’s as well as a quick, uncomplicated application process, a pre-approval facility for students to check eligibility for credit, and 24-hour capability. 

The Solution

DivideBuy proposed a tailored interest free credit solution allowing E-Careers to attract a wider variety of customers without punishing applicants deemed more ‘risky’. Our industry-compliant solution covered all their needs, offering greater flexibility and affordability for students. The switch to DivideBuy meant E-Careers was able to offer more extensive, higher-priced courses – giving students the option to spread the cost over a longer period.  

With its more rounded view of an applicant, DivideBuy’s system provided E-Careers with a higher acceptance rate, increasing their customer base. E-Careers said the integration, offering 24-hour services over the phone and website, was extremely simple – one of the easiest it had ever offered.  

Key Results
  •  Vastly improved student numbers.
  • A higher acceptance rate due to personalised credit decisions.
  • Increased revenue and better ROI in marketing. 
“Our partnership with DivideBuy provides opportunities for even more people to better their careers and improve their prospects. We’ve found their team and services to be knowledgeable and informative, very easy to work with, and always around to help. I’m delighted to report that the partnership is helping us with one of our key goals - to address the UK’s skills gap.”
