CBORD solutions for higher education integrate residential life, foodservice, and cashless retail systems that improve the student experience, increase revenues, and give staff data to streamline operations and inform strategic planning.
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 offers card systems to fit the needs of your campus. CS Gold® is an on-premise solution that allows schools to customize the system as their needs change. Odyssey DirectTM is a cloud-based, SaaS (Software as a Service) solution that requires little or no IT support. Both solutions offer powerful capabilities that deliver access, commerce, and security features with scalable growth options. Our wide range of applications, advanced software architecture, and easy-to-use graphical user interface makes CBORD card systems the most robust solutions available today.
CS Gold supports a variety of integrated modules designed for applications all across your campus: CS AccessTM for door control systems, CS Meal PlansTM for meal plan management, CS Action and Response ManagementTM for triggered alarms, CS NotifyTM for emergency mass communication, and many more. Choose the modules that best suit the needs of your campus.
Odyssey Direct offers the same support for access control, meal plan management, discretionary spending, vending, copying and printing, laundry, attendance tracking, activity processing, card production, and more—all hosted by CBORD and accessed through a web browser. There is no software to install, no card system server to maintain, and no database administrator required, making it an ideal solution for institutions with resource constraints.
CBORD provides integrated food production solutions that enhance the student experience. Our systems provide nutrition and allergen information, and online meal ordering, all easily accessible from any smartphone. Our back-of-the-house production systems provide tools to maintain quality and consistency, along with operational cost management.
As your foodservice operation expands, and more locations are added, the back-of the-house food management process becomes more complex. Whether you are supplying a franchise location, setting up branded concepts, or providing catering to a number of locations, CBORD technology is designed to simplify and control an increasingly complex operation.
CBORD FusionTM is a cloud-based foodservice operations and cost management solution for all campus dining venues, with tools designed for managing both retail and board dining. Track inventory and purchasing with mobile hardware allowing you to be productive outside your office. The system is designed for campus operations to improve and control processes from the loading dock to multiple dining venues.
CBORD Fusion's ability to manage complex menu design makes it easier to meet students' expectations of restaurant-style service, quality, and variety. It’s a fully web-based, hosted, SaaS (Software as a Service) solution. This dramatically simplifies the startup and maintenance cost and time, especially for campuses with limited IT resources.
Foodservice Suite® gives you the tools you need to streamline internal and external event planning throughout the entire catering lifecycle, from sales to production and billing, with modules like EventMaster®PLUS!TM and NetCatering®. Give your customers the power to create and manage their own catering reservations online. They can find available meeting spaces and make food and beverage selections without phone calls, faxes, or drop-ins to the catering department, leading to higher customer satisfaction and greater efficiency.
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.
CBORD’s housing management solutions start working before the student arrives on campus. Students use the MyResCenter® Web portal to complete their housing applications, select room assignments, meal plans, and more. Staff can customize the process to the needs of the university. Create a floor-plan-style display as a visual interface for room selection, so residents can click on a room to view room details, or select the room for assignment.
Some organizations allow students to choose their own rooms, but typically they use the Automatic Assignment module which takes student preferences into account while simplifying room placement. The MyResCenter Web portal gives residents the convenience of performing these tasks quickly and easily, without staff intervention. The state-of-the-art, customizable design shows your university employs leading edge technologies.
Once students arrive on campus, the check-in process with ResCenter® is fast and efficient, minimizing lines and making a great first impression. Checked-in students have immediate access to their room using their card or an app on their phone with this integrated system. An online room condition reporting form ensures that everything is as it should be on day one. ResCenter is designed for flexibility, student self-service, and easy integration.
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.
CS AccessTM is CBORD's IP-based door access control technology tailored specifically for higher education. Its powerful privilege management allows schools to track and configure door access 24/7, and even tie the software to integrated alarms management, surveillance, and notification solutions for a fully integrated campus security system. Because security personnel are rarely found behind their desks, staff can remotely manage access assignments and more via mobile devices and the Internet.
CS Access easily accommodates dozens of building administrators’ planning schedules at thousands of locations, for tens of thousands of users. CBORD’s extensive experience with access control and security helps provide a state-of-the art access control solution that goes well beyond the process of unlocking doors.
AvailTM is a hosted access control solution, which makes it easy to implement, manage, and expand. Accessible from any web browser, Avail is a cloud-based access control system designed to improve campus security with minimal resources required. It harnesses the power of CS Access and delivers it in a hosted package ideal for small to medium campuses.
Whether they are controlling parking gates, turnstiles, elevators, or any other access point, your students move throughout the campus with ease and confidence using a system of intelligent controls that are flexible and forward-thinking. CBORD solutions include ID card printing, photo capture, eligibility verification, and access control, all in a secure data environment, and all available from a smartphone.
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.
With GET FundsTM Account Management, students can manage their own campus card accounts any time. With GET FoodTM online ordering, students view menus from participating merchants, place orders through a simple, intuitive process, and pay via campus card or credit card.
UGryd® is a PCI-compliant transaction-processing host that acts as the backbone of CBORD off-campus programs. The powerful technology allows for real-time transaction processing with secure connections between universities and merchants, eliminating the need for phone lines, modem banks, and excess hardware on campus. UGryd settles daily with merchants and supplies real-time views of daily settlements, as well as monthly merchant statements.
Student Advantage® is now a part of GET and is giving all campus card holders discounts on everything they need for school. By combining the benefits of Student Advantage with student ID cards, schools generate additional income while providing a valuable savings tool to their students. The Student Advantage University ID Program streamlines the enrollment process and strengthens the value of the student ID card. The University ID program is fully integrated with CBORD’s Odyssey PCSTM and CS Gold® systems.
CBORD’s retail solutions fit any campus environment, powering full countertop point-of-sale (POS) terminals, handheld retail units, kiosks, and online and mobile ordering for any food service or convenience store location.
Using data from the NetNutrition® module in Foodservice Suite®, students can view menu offerings from their computers or smartphones, filtered by dining location, allergens, or other preferences (vegan, kosher, locally grown, etc.). That same nutrition and menu information can also be displayed on digital menu boards. Print nutrition labels for a specific menu or group of items and easily export data to other third-party label systems.
C-StoreTM integrates point-of-sale and inventory management data for a college convenience store, all accessible on a mobile device. Vendor integration simplifies purchasing procedures by streamlining the ordering and receiving process with vendor item and price information. This automates price updates, orders, and invoice entry, which promotes accurate and timely inventory levels and costs.
