CBORD unveils mobile food ordering platform

Zack Martin   ||   Apr 16, 2013  ||   ,

CBORD announced the release of GET Food, an online and mobile ordering system designed to expand college and university students’ dining options and improve convenience. GET Food is the latest addition to CBORD’s GET commerce platform. This new technology also enables students to manage their campus card accounts and do much more from any computer or mobile device that’s connected to the Internet.

GET Food extends the campus card’s purchasing power to food venues on campus and off. The solution is designed to simplify online and mobile. Students simply log in to view menus from participating merchants and venues on campus and off and they can place orders using the appropriate campus card accounts.

GET Food is integrated with CBORD’s CS Gold, Odyssey PCS and OdysseyOne campus card systems, making it easy to implement and extend purchasing power without complicated interfaces or conversions.

GET Food is a part of GET, a cloud-based commerce solution from CBORD that transforms a traditional campus card program into a physical and virtual commerce environment. GET provides online and mobile access to campus card accounts, both for account management – GET Funds – and spending –GET Food.

GET can benefit the school and the student. Students enjoy a mobile one-stop shop for managing funds and expanding their dining options. Universities appreciate a hosted commerce platform that integrates with their existing campus card systems and enables them to offer their students mobile features.

Merchants and campus dining venues benefit from a virtual storefront with advertising that attracts students to their businesses, potentially increasing sales. Parents value a secure means of getting funds to their students to be used in a controlled spending environment while broadening their dining horizons.

Salem State University has deployed the system and received positive feedback, says Robert Thayer, manager of the ClipperCard Program, at the Mass.-based institution. “They say the online ordering is convenient, the site is intuitive, and they are recommending it to all their friends. From a university perspective, we appreciate the security of online ordering and the convenience of offering account management, online ordering, and transaction processing all through the GET platform. We plan to keep expanding its use to other venues.”
