Washington-based campus card provider Blackboard Inc. says some 14 colleges, universities and K-12 institutions, have selected the Blackboard campus commerce and security management platform. These institutions have joined hundreds of others which have signed up for campus ID card technology, on- and off-campus payment solutions, facility access control and other security solutions.

Some of the organizations that have recently selected Blackboard include: Cushing Academy, a K-12 boarding school in Ashburnham, Mass.; Endicott College, Beverly, Mass.; Fort Lewis College, Durango, Colo.; Jones County Junior College, Ellisville, Miss.; Maine College of Art, Portland; New York Law School, New York City; Northwest Nazarene University, Nampa, Idaho; Phillips Academy, Andover, Grades 9-12 boarding school, Exeter, N.H.; Point Loma Nazarene University, San Diego, Calif.; Ringling School of Art and Design, Sarasota, Fla.; Shenandoah University, Winchester, Va.; Tecnologico de Monterrey, Monterrey, Mexico; University of Arizona, Tucson; and Wallace State Community College, Hanceville, Ala.

“We had a wide range of needs, including the ability to process financial transactions at campus shops, minimize the need for cash at vending and laundry machines, provide door access, manage campus printing in support of our sustainability initiatives, and provide a tool to take and manage student attendance,” said Valerie Roman, director of technology at Phillips Academy. “We were looking to address these needs with an integrated solution which could be phased in over time. We partnered with Blackboard based on its long track record, solid financial standing, strong customer base, and high customer satisfaction.”

With the integrated Blackboard Transact platform, institutions can streamline business operations and increase revenue while meeting a wide range of commerce and security needs. Specifically, the platform enables organizations to:

  • Facilitate campus ID card issuance; on-campus, off-campus and online commerce; cashless payment processing for dining, bookstore, vending, laundry, copy and parking services; financial reporting; self-service account management; and

  • Monitor all campus and student activity with integrated door access control, video surveillance and mass notification capabilities.
