The University of Colorado at Boulder, already utilizing The CBORD Group for housing management, online ordering, foodservice management and student discount memberships has now switched its campus ID card debit system to CBORD’s Odyssey PCS System.
University enjoys ease of operations from full-service provider
Ithaca, New York–When employees at the University of Colorado at Boulder discovered they could increase the quality of service to students and make IT operations on-campus more efficient at the same time, they knew they had a win-win opportunity. By switching their campus ID card debit system to the Odyssey PCS system from The CBORD Group, Inc., UC Boulder added another powerful tool to its well-known student life technology services.
“IT leadership requires as much art as analysis, as much vision as value, in budgeting and incorporating systems,” says Robert Dixon, Director of IT for Housing and Dining Services at the University of Colorado at Boulder. “We have repeatedly chosen CBORD not only because of their superior support, but because of the integration benefits of the system-family, now and for the future. CBORD’s user interface is clean, clear, and solid, and empowers management and staff to mine data independent of assistance from IT operations. Consequently, IT and business operations can be productive in providing historical and trending data analysis through such shared systems that can provide a clearer direction for leaders.”
The University of Colorado at Boulder has been expanding its use of CBORD systems for several years. The school currently uses CBORD products across its campus for ID card privilege control (Odyssey PCS), housing management (Odyssey HMS), judicial conduct tracking (Odyssey HMS Judicial), online ordering (Webfood), back-of-house foodservice management (Foodservice Suite), and student discount memberships (Student Advantage).
“We are very excited to have the University of Colorado at Boulder as such a significant solutions customer,” says Bruce Lane, Executive Vice President and COO of The CBORD Group, Inc. “Our efforts are always to provide solutions that improve the lives of students, their parents, and university administrators. UC Boulder is a perfect example of the synergy CBORD systems create together on a campus, which helps Robert and his colleagues do what they do as efficiently and effectively as possible.”
