One card lets students own their campus experience

With a single campus ID—card, mobile, or biometrics—give your students access to everything from vending machines to financial aid to a safe trip across campus. And students’ seamless and cashless transactions mean greater efficiencies and reduced operational costs for you.

Easy commerce and tracking

Make it easy for students to buy stuff—one card lets students purchase books, do laundry, even pay for a pizza off campus— without cash! Plus, make attendance and event tracking pain-free with verification and tracking solutions.

Make your campus more secure

Integrate security systems to protect students and make your campus more secure. With one card you can control door access, integrate video surveillance, provide a mobile safety app, and ensure quick emergency response. Help students feel--and be--safer.

Funds disbursement simplified

Give students easy, secure electronic access to financial aid and student payroll funds disbursement. Streamline your financial systems and curb excess fees and costs for your students.

Merchant and marketing services

Turn-key off-campus merchant services add significant value to your card program. Cardholders use the same pre-paid spending account and we provide complete acceptance, recruitment, settlement, and comprehensive support for merchants.
