Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Singapore American School, providing American-based curriculum for pre-school through grade 12 to 3,800 expatriate students in Singapore, has selected the CS Gold one-card solution from CBORD to manage card-based purchasing, security operations and more.

Singapore American School uses CS Gold to manage a variety of functions including dining purchases, printing, bookstore purchases, library privileges, and online account management. More than 10,000 ID cards will be issued to parents and students, thereby increasing campus security by requiring proper identification to enter the campus. A card-based access control system is also planned for installation this fall.

Additionally, the card is formatted to meet Singapore CEPAS contactless card standards, which means that students can, not only use their campus cards for quick and easy transactions across campus, but the also for payment (off-campus) at a nationwide network of merchants.

CEPAS is a single multi-purpose stored value card used throughout Singapore as payment for services including transit (bus, mass rapid transit, and light rail transit), taxi service, driving (electronic tolls, parking), retail, and more. [end]
