Podcast: PockeTracker at Madison Area Technical College

Andrew Hudson   ||   Aug 24, 2017  ||   , , ,

A growing number of campuses are using mobile devices to facilitate ID card verification. One of the solutions that's ready to meet this trend head on is Vision Database Systems' PockeTracker solution, which leverages sleds -- or pieces of hardware that attach to the outside of existing smartphones -- to read the full range of campus card technologies.

In today's podcast hear from Zack Walker of Vision Database Systems on why a solution like PockeTracker is such a good fit for campus environments and his thoughts on Madison Area Technical College's advanced deployment of the system. Then, hear from Madison College's Doug Gerbitz, who has overseen the PockeTracker deployment across the college's system of campuses, about the ways in which mobile ID verification is being utilized.

Today's podcast is just a small preview of our free 25-minute, on-demand webinar where we dive deeper into how campuses can use smartphones to log attendance and other vital student traffic information. The webinar discusses both the mobile capabilities of PockeTracker with its handheld sleds, as well as the backend system that handles reporting and privileges.

The webinar is also where you can hear more on how Madison College is using mobile ID verification to monitor access to its campus health clinic, issue valuable city bus passes to students, and monitor student access to the college’s campus-to-campus shuttle service.
