SmartCity® Campus Solutions

SmartCity® is a worldwide leader in Campus card systems with over 90 sites globally having issued over 5 million SmartCity® cards. Why? Because SmartCity® can host all main campus applications on a single card, giving cardholders and the university a simple platform to purchase goods and access services.

SmartCity® is a modular suite from which institutions can select applications ­ such as canteen payments, laundry, vending and photocopying ­ or implement a complete campus system.

Value can be added to SmartCity® cards using the internet, allowing parents to load funds to a student's card remotely.

In addition, all SmartCity® cards can support up to six separate purses (accounts) ensuring that value on one purse (if dedicated) can only be spent in a particular location, such as the bookstore.

SmartCity® applications can use contact or contactless chip cards. Both chips can be combined on a single card to provide the best of both technologies and can easily be added to magnetic stripe or prox cards.

With our Merchant Acquirer, SmartCity® cards can be used off-campus in participating stores and restaurants, extending the reach and convenience of your campus card.


Optional Modules

All or any of these applications can be chosen for your SmartCity® system and can be added over time as your system grows:
