Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

CardSmith utilized at retirement communities

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

CardSmith announced that it has implemented its card program management service at three continuing care retirement communities - two in North Carolina and one in Virginia, all of which are managed by United Church and Home Services.

Under the program, residents of the facilities are issued personalized cards with pre-paid spending accounts that can be used at designated point of sale kiosks across the facilities.


United Church and Home Services have a custom Web-based transaction solution without local systems or software of any kind, and residents have 24/7 access to accounts through a dedicated cardholder account center.

United Church and Home Services say that everything is off to a good start and that they plan to expand the system to more of their locations over time. They also hope to extend the services to include vending machines and other activities the residents attend. [end] 

CardSmith in is rolling out real-time account activation for its clients using the company’s IDMS system.

IDMS, CardSmith’s card printing and production system, continuously updates the company’s transaction system anytime a card is printed or replaced. This means that students can walk out of their campus card office with an active, transaction-ready credential. Providing students with an active ID at the time of issuance eliminates delays associated with batch file processing, a common occurrence in other systems.
