Utah university, credit union launch instant-issuance OneCard with Visa debit

Utah Community Credit Union has partnered with Utah Valley University, Orem, Utah, to implement a campus card program that includes keyless building access, a bus pass, access to athletic events and a Visa debit card. The new program was engineered by Runge & Company, a consulting firm specializing in card issuance systems.

The new UV OneCard Plus supports a contactless chip-based door access system, “GreenBucks” campus purchases including discount-dining services on campus, a bus pass and access to athletic events and other activities. Students, faculty and staff can add Visa debit and ATM capability to their cards by linking them to their credit union checking accounts.

The embossed OneCard Plus can be instantly issued on UVU’s campus at the credit union’s branch in the Sorensen Center.

“UVU will be the first school to offer such an array of features and technologies in a campus card,” said Erik Runge, Runge & Company’s president.

“Runge & Company was instrumental in creating the partnership between the credit union and the school,” said Jeff Sermon, president and CEO of Utah Community Credit Union. Runge & Company designed a card issuance system that is compatible with existing campus technology, including integration with UVU’s Datacard ID Works and Blackboard systems, as well as the credit union’s card management system and instant issuance hardware.

“Runge helped structure a financial relationship that includes a revenue plan to build student participation and maximize card usage, as well as scholarships, internships, and campus sponsorships,” Sermon added.

UVU, with an enrollment of 25,000, was formerly known as Utah Valley State College until its name change July 1. Utah Community Credit Union, based in Provo, Utah, operates 17 branches and serves more than 96,000 members.
