ASSA ABLOY will be working alongside student housing software solutions provider, StarRez to integrate the companies’ offerings.
The partnership will see ASSA ABLOY’s PERSONA Campus software and StarRez’s student housing solution blended to enable campuses to manage electronic access control for student housing via the same StarRez platform that is currently used for other housing management functions.
PERSONA Campus is an access control software that enables database integration and software interface with enterprise, transactional and housing systems. PERSONA also supports both mag stripe and contactless technology, enabling easy migration to higher security credentials.
PERSONA software can also enable custom access based on a specific user, facility, or individual lock. The software is compatible with a variety of offline, Power over Ethernet and Wi-Fi locks from ASSA ABLOY’s Corbin Russwin and SARGENT brands.
StarRez, meanwhile, is a student housing software solution that features online housing applications, online roommate and room self-selection. Using StarRex, students can select their roommates and rooms online, search eligible roommates, view their lifestyle profiles, message one another and directly request roommates.
StarRez also supports management and staff administrative functions such as billing, reporting, e-mail/e-mail merge and can be completely integrated with other campus systems including student information, student financial accounts, online payment processing, single sign-on via existing campus portals, security access cards and meal plans.
