St Louis, MO – February 15, 2017 – ITC Systems has confirmed a partnership with Yakima Valley College that has resulted in a campus-wide commerce solution. ITC Systems has decades of experience in campus card solutions for colleges and universities, and company CEO Campbell Richardson says he’s honoured by the YVC’s decision to bring its business to his company.

“One of the reasons we’ve become specialists in commerce solutions for colleges and universities is that we enjoy the complexity of the projects we undertake on their behalf,” Mr. Richardson says. “What’s more, YVC is entirely focused on enhancing the student experience in every way possible and we’re very pleased to be able to support them in that effort.”

Mr. Richardson says he expects it will take time to consolidate YVC’s existing systems and implement new contactless payment technologies that are consistent with those coming on-stream in the world of retail. The project involves snack/beverage vending, bookstore purchases, dining purchases, printing/copying, and other student facing commerce transactions. For the ultimate in convenience, the students and their parents are able to add value to the students account online using a debit/credit card.

YVC’s choice of the ITC Systems’ Multiplan online student account solution means students will have one card for all transaction payments across campus. The DESFire contactless card will function like a debit card where transactions are recorded in real-time through an online account hosted by the university. Students will also be able to check their account balances at any time through the web, while administrators can obtain the technical reports they need online.

Mr. Richardson says the ITC Systems’ team and YVC’s project team is looking forward to working together this year and beyond.

“Campus card solutions are important for everyone on campus and we all appreciate the opportunity to make a difference,” he says.
