Nature of organisation: Privately held Corporation. Credentials Solutions is a Software as a SERVICE (SaaS) COMPANY that develops and supports hosted applications for select colleges and universities that are designed to deliver an enhanced purchasing experience for students and alumni who request transactional services from our client institutions. Our goal in each of our applications is to streamline the back-office processing, controls and reporting for the institutions we serve.
