In this installment of NACCU’s Talking Campus ID Tech series, Touchnet’s director of OneCard sales, Fred Emery, discusses the differences between on-premise and hosted card system solutions.
Deciding whether to maintain a campus card system on premise or outsource to a third party via a hosted model is a major consideration for any institution. But the decision only comes after considerable conversation and strategic planning for each campus’ specific environment.
Emery lays out a clear understanding of these considerations by breaking down the major differences between hosted and on-premise solutions, as well as the benefits of each model. Then, he examines the reasons universities opt for an on-premise or hosted solution based on many of the common concerns that modern campuses have.
The campus identification and transaction industry’s professional association, NACCU, takes great pride in its ability to educate members and the entire higher education community. That’s the idea behind the association’s “Talking Campus ID Tech” video series.
The video series details key campus identification technologies and features subject matter experts from the NACCU member community talking about key topics like this installment dedicated to barcodes.
The videos are presented by NACCU and produced by NACCU and CR80News. The full series can be viewed at NACCU.org.
