Client Success Stories
Here are the most recent success stories. You can also see the complete list.
"We are an Auxiliary department," said Craig Howard, WSU's Director of Administrative Services Information Systems. "We're not thinking just about dining or just about the card office. We wanted an inclusive app for student affairs, and that's the vision we see with GET™."
After a decades-long hiatus, the Cal Poly Pomona Foundation reintroduced the Poly Trolley food truck in May of 2013. The foundation had realized areas of campus were being underserved and decided on a fully mobile food truck to address the dining demand. The truck has returned to campus redesigned and refurbished with the latest technology, allowing for speed of service, accessibility, and a revolutionary campus dining experience.
The University at Albany in New York (UAlbany) places student engagement and satisfaction at the heart of its Auxiliary Services, and its SUNYCard is a powerful tool in delivering these values. The University recently rolled out online photo upload through CBORD's GET platform, and even set up "selfie stations" in orientation residence halls to make the process easy and fun.
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.
