With only a small number of students and faculty members currently using the system, ASU director of business applications Laura Ploughe stated the system may not only be used for opening doors in the future.
Ploughe explained further that the Sun Devil’s plans to expand the NFC system to support laundry and vending, campus transit and cashless payment.
