The CBORD Group has entered into an arrangement with South Carolina to enable the state’s agencies and public colleges and universities to purchase CBORD’s campus card systems without having to issue a request for proposal as is traditionally required by the state.
Ithaca, New York–The CBORD Group, Inc., the leading provider of campus card privilege control systems, was recently awarded a contract with the state of South Carolina, making it possible for the state’s agencies and public colleges, universities, and other institutions to purchase its campus card systems without issuing a Request for Proposal (RFP).
A Request for Proposal is typically required by the laws governing public institutions in South Carolina. To allow schools to forego this practice, CBORD entered into a comprehensive review process with the state, and its products were ultimately approved.
“This is very exciting news, both for CBORD and for South Carolina institutions purchasing card systems,” says Randy Eckels, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, The CBORD Group. “The process of issuing and reviewing an RFP is typically very time- and resource-consuming, and can be prohibitive to schools considering new campus card systems. These schools can now come to CBORD, confident they will receive a high-quality product delivered quickly and efficiently.”
CBORD offers the largest portfolio of campus card systems in the industry—CS Gold, Odyssey PCS , and OdysseyOne . The systems scale to fit institutions of any size, and provide functionality for access control, dining, vending, electronic security and surveillance, off-campus commerce, student discount programs, card production, and much more.
