Elevate the Student Experience

The student experience is about more than their time in the classroom. It’s also about their experience everywhere else on and around campus. Provide the services college students need with the technology they want.

The university ID is the key to accessing auxiliary services both on and off college campuses. Most students use their card every day to make purchases; provide a photo credential; check in to classes, events, or activities; open doors; pay for laundry; and so much more. Offer contactless credentials so students can navigate campus with convenience and ease.

Set your school apart with technology solutions built for higher education.

Create a seamless campus experience that offers convenience without sacrificing security.

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

How We Help Throughout Campus

Card and Credentials

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.

Access and Security

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, automatically grant or revoke privileges, and remotely lock down buildings during an emergency.



Manage all aspects of residence life with smart tools and the latest technology. With automatic room assignments, student self-service, and automated check-in, you can redefine the way you manage housing and how students experience your program.

Retail and Point of Sale

Retail & Point of Sale

Whether you have one or multiple dining venues and retail locations, streamline and modernize your point-of-sale processes with the latest in hardware and software. Offer online ordering and healthy payment options that support social distancing.



Simplify student life with one mobile app that streamlines student engagement with campus services and expands the reach of your campus card program. For any card and account-related activity, students simply open the GET app, scan the barcode, and go.



Operate a lean foodservice program with an integrated, leading-edge technology solution. Use smart tools from CBORD for menu planning, food production, and continuous evaluation to maintain a strong dining program in the new normal.
