Heartland Payment Systems announced its latest offering for higher education institutions with the debut of WĒPA. Employing cloud computing, WĒPA is designed to eliminate an institution’s dependence on equipment purchases or leases, hardware and software licenses and maintenance and server integration fees.
The University of West Florida is working with Heartland to install WĒPA on its campus. Kiosks will be available at various locations across campus, including the UWF Student Center, libraries, computer labs, residence halls and classrooms.
With WĒPA, students can upload documents for printing wherever Internet service is provided and then print them at WĒPA kiosks, which can be placed anywhere on campus to meet the needs of the school community. And when not in use for printing, the kiosks also double as a campus communications tool – displaying announcements, emergency notifications/alerts, sporting event schedules and other types of promotion.
WĒPA supports multiple platforms including Windows, Mac, Linux and UNIX, and offers students the option to print their documents in black and white or color, as well as double-sided prints.
