Campus card programs are important drivers of the student experience. A “one-card campus” brings convenience and security to create happier students, safer facilities, more efficient employees, and a stronger bottom line. CBORD systems allow campus card users to make payments in laundry rooms, bookstores, off-campus vendors, athletic stadiums, and more. Each of these convenient card payment acceptance points is a potential revenue generator for schools.

CBORD provides complete integrated security management systems that include access and privilege control, identity management and integrated video capabilities. They support emergency lockdown from anywhere based on rules you define, real-time monitoring, and control of doors and privileges. When students and parents see that you’ve invested in a modern, leading edge integrated security system, and they interact with the systems, they feel protected.

GETTM is a cloud-based commerce solution from CBORD that expands the reach of your campus card system efficiently and securely. A hosted solution brings many benefits, including no hardware to maintain, PCI-compliant transactions processed by CBORD, automatic upgrades, and easy expandability. GET is a secure, convenient way to expand your students’ dining options while driving new sales and avoiding additional overhead.The GET platform is a singular mobile app experience for all card- and account-related activity. Use GET My CardTM Mobile Payments to pull out your phone, launch the app, and pay—it's that simple. Using a 2D bar code scanner, any point of sale (POS) system can accept the GET app for payment.

CBORD technology allows you to focus your time on engaging your students instead of filing paper and hunting for metal keys. Instantly activate resident access privileges. Swipe a card to check in. Swipe a card to get into your room. With automated check-in, your move-in day lines all but disappear; with online room condition reporting, you no longer hunt for paper inventory sheets from the start of the semester; and with contact management, you know what you communicated to whom, and when.
