Build an integrated campus-wide solution that encompasses ID cards and credentials, access and security, foodservice and nutrition, retail and point of sale, and commerce.

Cards & Credentials

Campus IDs and credentials are at the center of college life. They serve as identification, provide physical access to buildings and rooms, and enable payments on and off campus. Accelerate your card program with on-premise and cloud-based options.  

Campus Cards and Credentials


Simplify student life with one mobile app that streamlines student engagement with campus services. Students simply open the app on their Android or iOS device, scan the barcode, and go. You can also expand the reach of your campus card program off campus by engaging local merchants to accept campus IDs as payment.

Retail & Point of Sale

Whether your operation is small or has multiple dining venues and retail locations, streamline and modernize your point-of-sale processes with the latest hardware and software. Easily provide access to nutritional and allergen information, and offer online ordering and flexible payment options that support social distancing. 

Retail and POS


Lean processes need to drive every campus foodservice program. Universities are facing campus-wide budget cuts, customers are spending less, and shortages in the supply chain are making items difficult to stock. Maintain a strong dining program with smart tools for menu planning, inventory management, and food production.

Access & Security

Physical safety is top of mind for everyone on campus. Enable your security staff to control and monitor who has access to buildings at which times, grant or revoke that access easily, and quickly lock down a building or group of buildings during an emergency.
