University of Bozen banks on single card with multiple contactless applications

Andy Williams   ||   Nov 13, 2008  ||   , , ,

Time and attendance, identification and access authorization are three of the applications available on the campus card used by students at the University of Bozen-Bolzano in Italy. Other applications on the card supplied by Swiss contactless card provider LEGIC Identsystems, include electronic payments, a library card, Internet access, voting card and printing and copying.

Based on two sector solutions–access control and time and attendance by Interflex as well as the electronic payment system by Automaten Seitz–the university has developed an additional range of solutions which have been seamlessly integrated with its own university information system. Previously separated systems have been brought together to guarantee an all-round service for students and staff.

As soon as students enter the university or registers, they receive a personalized smart card with their photo, name and library number. With one press of a button, the account is registered in the science network, library permissions are created, access authorizations are granted and the card printed and coded – all in less than five minutes.

To ensure the service remains as transparent as possible, users can view all data via the Web. Further, the campus card can be blocked using an online application.

The LEGIC smart card itself displays the dates in which the card is valid. This is in a rewritable field so if the card is renewed, the new dates can be printed on the card. The Bozen campus card is also expandable. Additional applications can be added at any time.
