Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

University's ONE Card will save school money

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is getting ready to launch its ONE Card that consolidates an assortment of features including photo identification, physical access into buildings and parking, library services, meal plans, Blazer Bucks and time and attendance records.

“UAB as a whole is going to save a considerable amount of money in this process by eliminating unneeded card systems,” said Jon Corliss, project manager for the ONE Card Project. “Also, consolidating to a single card per person will bring substantial savings.”

The core project team involves members from Human Resources, Physical Security, Information Technology, Parking & Transportation, and Customer Service and Quality Improvement.

The university is expected to launch the card in December, but re-carding the 30,000 cardholders will probably take up to six months. The only out-of-pocket cost for students would be for lost or damaged cards.
