Innovative smartcard facility management for Universities and colleges. Using a single smartcard, Fidelity are able to offer a wide variety of key services typically found in campus environments including cashless payments, print and copy control, access control and registration.

The Fidelity solution is designed around the concept of students carrying a multi-application smartcard. One single card can replace cash across a campus and additionally provide students with access to a range of IT services and entitlements. Fidelity’s G-PoS software is used at the point of sale for catering with the back office control being achieved with Fidelity’s Total Control Premier.

The back office card control software is Facility Pro Manager which defines card user rights, permitting the allocation of subsidies and discounts to individual users. This software also tracks, records and processes each transaction providing comprehensive management information. The final part is the integration of all income derived from the card being transferred into the University’s accounting software. This can be broken down by source ie printing income, copying income, vending income etc and seamlessly integrated into a third party accounts package.

Reduce or completely remove cash from the campus to save time, reduce overhead and improve security.
