CBORD adds 25 new campuses to GET platform

Andrew Hudson   ||   Aug 05, 2015  ||   

CBORD has seen a number of new campuses climb onboard with the company's GET platform in 2015. Since the beginning of the year, CBORD has added 25 new customers to the company's mobile commerce platform, including Florida International University, University of Oregon, Northern Virginia Community College, Keene State College, and on the health care side, Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Designed to be a one-stop shop for the life of a student’s ID, the GET platform allows a user to add funds to various accounts, check usage of meal plans, investigate where they can spend their funds on- and off-campus, and order food.

“Our customers have been clear: they want united commerce functions that cross all parts of campus,” says Susan Chaffee, director of product development for CBORD. “We’ve been in online ordering and online account management for years, and during this time have come to fully understand how a single touch point for the patron can be a value driver for an entire auxiliary operation.”

Keene State College, one of the newly added GET campus partners, has seen the benefit of the GET's all-in-one format. “There is a significant upside to having card office, dining and marketing functionality in one app,” says Rebecca Hunt, marketing manager with dining services at Keene State College. “Offering food ordering within the app students are already using to manage their accounts allowed us to add value and, perhaps more importantly, increase visibility and use of the GET platform. Ultimately, this streamlines and simplifies our Owl Card Office services and marketing.”

It's no secret that the student ID is vital for nearly every part of student life, whether access to athletic facilities, academic buildings and dorms to paying for copies, parking tickets, and supplies in the bookstore. It's for this reason that losing a student ID can feel like being marooned on an island with no way to access meals or a dorm room.

“A student with a lost ID on a Friday night can mean a student with a lost weekend," says Chaffee. "The newest GET feature will allow payment at POS with the app — a function that will expand GET’s impact beyond the auxiliary department and dining facilities."
