Selected by an international panel of experts, BlackBoard Inc. took home a SESAME in the category of Banking/Retail/Loyalty for the BlackBoard MF4100 Contactless Multifunction Reader.

Designed for use in a range of campus applications including copy, point-of-sale or laundry, the MF4100 can be mounted to the wall or installed onto a table top. In addition, the device provides multimedia player capabilities including audio and full video, as well as cardholder interaction via a 5.7” LCD touch screen panel.
