Toronto, ON– Aug 15, 2011– ITC Systems, a leading provider of campus card solutions to colleges and universities has proudly partnered with University of Ottawa in creating a campus-wide e-Commerce solution consolidating its current multiple campus card systems. This vast multi-year project comprises of snack/beverage vending, bookstore purchases, dining purchases, laundry charges, printing/copying, and other e-commerce transactions.
With the implementation of ITC Systems’ MultiPlan online student account solution, students reap full benefits of using a MiFare-based one card for all transaction payments across campus. The card functions like a debit card where transactions are recorded in real-time through an online account hosted by the university. Students can also check their account balances at any time through the web, while administrators and merchants can obtain activity reports they specifically need online as well.
“We considered various vendors and were most impressed with ITC Systems commitment to deliver a bilingual solution and ability to go beyond course delivery of campus-wide solutions and card technologies”, said Patrick Genest, the University’s Manager of Food & Card Services. “We also furthered this opportunity by looking to utilize contactless payment technologies as it becomes more prevalent in the merchant world.”
“We are proud to be supporting University of Ottawa’s decision in moving forward with a full-suite campus card program that will in no doubt enhance overall student experience and campus life,” said Dan Bodolai, VP of Business Development of ITC Systems. “This program creates great value not only for the students but is also designed to help streamline the university’s administration services.”
University of Ottawa’s Card Services is scheduled to go live with their one-card campus program as of September 2011.
