sQuid, provider of contactless eMoney solutions for campuses and The London School of Economics and Political Science announced the launch of sQuid on the LSE card.
Students and staff can go online to pre-load the card with funds to spend at various on-campus restaurants, cafes, and libraries. The card also has a loyalty purse included, and LSE plan to introduce incentives and promotions so students and staff can gain rewards by using their cards throughout the campus.
Thanks to a partnership by sQuid and smart card bureau, Euclid, students and staff at LSE can use the one card to access facilities and make contactless payments throughout the campus. The multi-function smart card incorporates ID, access control, eMoney, loyalty and library membership.
New students starting at LSE are already being issued with the new LSE card, which includes the sQuid technology. Existing students and most staff will get the chance to upgrade their card by the end of the year.
