The University of Alabama at Birmingham is getting ready to launch its ONE Card that consolidates an assortment of features including photo identification, physical access into buildings and parking, library services, meal plans, Blazer Bucks and time and attendance records.
“UAB as a whole is going to save a considerable amount of money in this process by eliminating unneeded card systems,” said Jon Corliss, project manager for the ONE Card Project. “Also, consolidating to a single card per person will bring substantial savings.”
