Making decisions about your campus card system and its future can be a tricky endeavor without having the right information handy. There are countless considerations that can all play into important decisions around card technology, access control hardware, future technologies and industry trends.

The best way to account for these considerations is to ask questions, seek information and consult with professionals who know their stuff. That's the idea behind ColorID's Identity Summit events. Hosted regionally across the country, ColorID will be visiting San Francisco, Calif. Tuesday, July 24th to put on their one-day, informative event.

"We’re excited for the opportunity to host our first Identity Summit on the west coast with the University of San Francisco," says Mark Degan, Director of Corporate Marketing at ColorID. "Attendees will learn a lot at this free event, and some are even taking advantage of the surrounding location to check out the sights, as well."

The next Summit will be held on the University of San Francisco campus and led by technical identity experts from ColorID. The company and its representatives will provide attendees with information backed by their experience serving more than 1,200 higher education institutions around the globe. The Campus Identity Summit is also designed to bring together forward-thinking, university managers and administrators to create an engaging, informative environment in which attendees can learn about campus card technology.

"Since our last Identity Summit at George Washington University in March, a lot has happened," says Todd Brooks, Director of Product Management at ColorID. "We’re excited to address a lot more incoming questions from campuses about hot-button topics like the latest in cloud-based issuance services and mobile credentials."

New and advanced campus identity technologies are becoming available at a rapid rate, so it's important to stay on top of the trends. Campuses across the country are asking questions about new credential alternatives like mobile and biometrics, as well as contactless credentials and cloud-based identity.

"Institutions are particularly interested in any and all pathways that lead their campus toward operating in a proprietary free environment," says Brooks. "We've been fielding a lot of questions about how to create an ecosystem that enables campuses to pick and choose products and services they want without being told it can’t be done."

In addition to learning about industry trends and emerging technologies, attendees will also learn about the importance of having a Campus Identity Roadmap to help guide future decision making. The Summit will discuss what a Campus Identity Roadmap is, the process of constructing one, as well as the benefits of having a strategic, working document that will keep a campus' identity environment on the leading edge both in the near term and down the line.

Grubhub joined the Drake CampusCash program just one short year later in October of 2021, and the partnership has provided Drake students with a wider variety of off-campus dining options than ever before.
