The Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (WAICU) will partner with campus card data integration company SwiftData Technology as part of WAICU’s One Card program.
WAICU is the official organization of Wisconsin’s 24 private, non-profit colleges and universities. Under WAICU’s One Card program, all 24 member institutions will be able to implement SwiftData’s Pinwheel Data Management Engine (DME) at a discounted price.
SwiftData describes its Pinwheel DME as a vendor-neutral, standalone data integration platform that helps campus IT and auxiliary departments by outsourcing data integration automation for campus card and door access systems.
Development of the new program began in January with a WAICU higher education one card symposium attended by 38 representatives from member colleges and universities. The symposium provided members an opportunity to identify the features they needed and desired in a one card system.
“Managing on campus one card data integrations can be a daunting task,“ said Bill Schultz of WAICU. “In our quest to put together a first class program for WAICU members we turned to Swiftdata for their industry leading data integration management tool. Pinwheel DME will save our members time and money with the ability to easily automate the integration of one card data between disparate systems.”
