TORONTO, March 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MTFX Group of Companies, a leader in corporate foreign exchange and global payments announced the launch of its educational institution payment platform Paymytuition. The Paymytuition payment platform has been running in test phase over the last several months and is now available to educational institutions across North America.

We look forward to servicing the educational vertical by doing what we do best which is offering "high-tech, high-touch" solutions at a fraction of the cost of our competitors," said MTFX's Chief Market Strategist Arif Harji.
