CBORD’s GET Funds provides students mobile account management

Monday, April 23, 2012

The CBORD Group rolled out GET Funds, an online and mobile commerce software application that puts account information in the hands of students wherever mobile smart phone services are available.

GET Funds gives students 24/7 account access utilizing a mobile phone or computer. Students can instantly look up account balances and transaction histories, make or request account deposits, report campus cards lost or found, view locations that accept the campus card for payment, and more.


Students can also deposit money into their own accounts or instantly send messages to parents requesting funds. Parents then make online deposits to the specified accounts.

GET Funds integrates with CBORD’s CS Gold, Odyssey PCS and OdysseyOne campus card systems, making it easy to manage existing accounts without complicated interfaces or conversions.

“The mission of GET Funds is to provide the ultimate in convenience and value in students’ day-to-day lives,” says Cindy McCall, CBORD’s marketing vice president. “Colleges and universities are looking for ways to provide quality services to a new generation of students. CBORD listened to the users and responded with a solution that meets the needs of today’s students.” [end]

For now, the Daily Helmsman reports that the program will undergo a trial run with Garibaldi’s, Domino’s and Ubee’s – all restaurants located near the campus. More locations will be added as the program grows, however, and the Student Government Association claims there are already a number of local restaurants looking to sign up.

So too went many of the rewards programs and other perks for consumer debit. The lesson was clear … when regulation removes money from one area it has unforeseen consequences, and most often the consumer feels the pinch.
