Contactless smart cards represent an important new direction for campus card users. They not only provide more secure transactions, but they are the gateway to secure multiple applications, meaning one student ID card can provide the solution for any number of uses such as ID verification, building access control, on-campus purchases, library and network access, parking, and even mass transit.
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) May 22, 2010
RockWest Technology Group (RTG), a market-leading expert in contactless card technologies for higher education and campus integrated solutions, presented at the National Association of Campus Card Users (NACCU) annual conference, held April 18th – 21st in Phoenix, AZ. The NACCU conference brings together a variety of campus card professionals and users to learn about the latest technological advances, marketing innovations, and business practices of implementing, operating, and expanding a successful campus card program.
RTG’s Education Business Development Manager, Steve Benitez, presented jointly with the Identification Systems Group on the topic of contactless smart cards vs. magnetic stripe cards as a secure, reliable and convenient multiple application solution for campus users. Ultimately, contactless cards represent the new frontier in campus card technology. Benitez states: “Contactless cards provide a single point for identity management, from enrollment and ID issuance through to the student’s campus life cycle. Better security, better coordination of services, and better reliability means a better on campus experience for everyone.” Benitez discussed how contactless card systems allow for faster, more secure transactions, store much more data, and support multiple applications on a single card. He summarized by stating, “Contactless smart cards represent an important new direction for campus card users. They not only provide more secure transactions, but they are the gateway to secure multiple applications, meaning one student ID card can provide the solution for any number of uses such as ID verification, building access control, on-campus purchases, library and network access, parking, and even mass transit.”
