CBORD releases CS Notify, mass notification solution

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Nov 17, 2010  ||   ,

The CBORD Group announced the introduction of CS Notify, an advanced mass notification system designed to meet both the emergency and general multi-mode communication needs of any campus.

CS Notify leverages CBORD’s campus one-card system and access control solution – CS Gold and Odyssey PCS – to continuously keep the database of campus staff, students, administration, and others current. Information is updated automatically as students enter and update their information in order to use regular CBORD online software applications for meal plans or ID cards.

In addition, CS Notify integrates with CBORD’s CS Access system software to enable new features for end users. For example, when an authorized student cannot access a residence room because of a lost ID card or forgotten PIN, the student can send a simple text message to the system and receive verified, automatic, one-time access.

CS Notify is designed to target audience groups simultaneously through a variety of mediums, including SMS text messaging, email, point-of-service reader displays, and intercom and public address systems.

Villanova University, Pa., is using the CS Notify system to send text messages and emails to targeted groups for purposes ranging from athletic ticket lottery notifications to building maintenance updates. The university also uses the system to reach incoming freshmen and to encourage them to submit their ID card photos online over the summer.
