Multicard announced the launch of polypurse, an Internet-based platform for managing the cashless payment functions of its Swiss ID card for campus environments. The company’s polyright card serves as an all-in-one ID credential for payment, building access, library privileges, locker or bike rental and a wide array of other applications.
This new online platform offers the ability to manage cash functions of the card, in addition to extra features and convenience, including online account management and reporting, for the tens of thousands of student and employee cardholders at universities across Switzerland.
With polypurse, cardholders can perform a range of cash card management operations online, including checking account balances, verifying transactions and re-loading the card with cash value via a bank account or credit card.
In addition, polypurse enables cardholders to securely access value-added local services such as Mobility CarSharing for short-term city car rental and velopass for bike rental.
