Campuses Implement On-Line Card Offices with Odyssey PCS and WebVTS

Ithaca, New York—The CBORD Group, Inc., a leading provider of campus card, cashless, and foodservice management systems for the College & University, Corporate, and Healthcare markets, today announced they are pleased with the overwhelmingly positive results they continue to receive from their College & University clients who have installed the CBORD/JSA WebVTS interface.

CBORD worked with JSA Technologies in Washington, DC to provide an interface that would permit Colleges and Universities to combine its Odyssey PCS Campus Card System with JSA’s WebVTS system. This interface gives students, and more importantly parents or relatives, the ability to make deposits on to cardholders’ accounts via the Internet right from the comfort of their room or home. Students with Internet access can instantly (24 hours a day, 7 days a week), make deposits, check balances, view and print up to 6 months of transaction history and report cards lost or stolen. WebVTS also simplifies payment procedures by automatically performing settlements and printing reports, which help card offices validate and track sales.

CBORD clients using the Odyssey PCS/WebVTS interface include SUNY-Fredonia, SUNY-Stony Brook, Syracuse University, Trinity University-San Antonio, University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth and the University of Saint Francis, among others. WebVTS is easy to use, and encourages increased deposits to cardholders’ accounts, allowing more funds for spending on campus. By providing a web based presence for campus card systems, CBORD and JSA have not only made life easier for students and their parents, but have also increased revenue opportunities for campuses.

JSA Technologies is part of CBORD’s growing list of Campus Elements™ Partners, a select group of companies providing solutions for higher education that allow CBORD clients to integrate multiple systems with the standard in Campus-Wide Card Systems, Odyssey PCS. A wider variety of card related applications allow CBORD customers to increase student services and create more opportunities for campus-wide system users to gather data, increase revenue, and support increased services across campus.
