Montana State University Billings

Montana State University Billings

When Montana State University Billings wanted to improve security in its residence halls, the IT team knew it was time to move away from its legacy, standalone software systems. Read on to learn what made CBORD's new Avail™ hosted access control solution the perfect fit for this long-time Odyssey PCS™ user.

Syracuse University

Syracuse University

Syracuse University uses CBORD's Odyssey PCS™ to power its SUID card system, which provides students with access to their SUpercard declining balance accounts. The university recently partnered with CBORD to implement the MICROS® Simphony™ software platform, along with more than 230 MICROS Keyboard Workstation 270 units in its sports stadium, the Carrier Dome.

Boston University

Boston University

Boston University (BU) uses the CS Gold® campus card system for card production, meal plans, discretionary spending, privilege verification, laundry, vending, and more with iCLASS® contactless cards. BU also recently implemented a biometric solution in its Marciano Commons dining location, which serves more than 5,000 meals per day. The integrated system offers a quick, secure way for students to access their meal plans and gain entry.

Texas Christian University

Texas Christian University

Texas Christian University selected the MICROS® Simphony™ system for use at the newly reconstructed Amon G. Carter Stadium. The enterprise system integrates with CBORD's CS Gold, which means students can now use their cards for food and beverage purchases at athletic events in addition to the many areas on campus that currently accept the ID card for payment and privilege control.
