CardSmith rolls out Mobile Account Center

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Campus card services provider CardSmith is launching a mobile version of its online Cardholder Account Center.

Students, parents and other authorized users can use their smart phone to check balances, view transactions and revalue their meal plan or Campus Cash accounts through a scaled down mobile-friendly version. The smart phone interface also enables users to switch to the full Web site if desired.


CardSmith tested the mobile account solution with a number of clients throughout the fall 2012 semester.

Usage and adoption have been high and performance has been good, CardSmith said. All current and prospective CardSmith clients can now add mobility to their cardholder account center for their programs without incremental charges or fees.

Enhancements for 2013 are already in the works and include digital offers/rewards and the ability to pay by phone. [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.
