Biometric technology continues to evolve and disrupt the world of campus credentialing and verification. Colleges and universities use biometric readers in a variety of locations to both positively identify patrons and provide faster, more secure access. Now this technology is more accessible than ever before.

Direct Connect is the latest development in our suite of biometric solutions for CS Gold and Odyssey customers. Removing the need for Squadron hardware, Direct Connect enables easier installation of IDEMIA biometric devices with a smaller technology footprint.

View our recording to hear how the University of Rhode Island, a CBORD Odyssey customer, is using Direct Connect and IDEMIA MorphoWave Compacts for an all-you-can-eat campus dining center. With a simple wave of the hand, enrolled campus cardholders can enter the dining facility while a meal is deducted from a meal plan.

Becky Estey and Shaun Kavanagh of URI discuss the planning, installation, and enrollment stages of implementing biometric readers and share lessons learned during the process. Chris Lockwood, business analyst for CBORD card systems, explains how Direct Connect works with CS Gold and Odyssey systems and requirements for implementation.
