Due to ever-rising costs in education, institutions are leveraging new innovations and reorganizing information processes to more efficiently administer services. Unfortunately, most institutions have computer systems that are not integrated and do not share common databases.
Key applications, such as student ID, library card management, access control and food service card information are frequently maintained separately. The impacts of this non-compatibility include excessive time and money spent maintaining disparate systems and data input being duplicated multiple times to address different system needs.
As educational institutions make strategic decisions to improve the efficiency of their information management systems, they are integrating their various processing platforms and using one “smart card” to address all these applications.
NewNet’s Payment Gateway Solutions (traditional dial and IP-based accelerators) assist educational institutions by enhancing security for data transport from “smart card” use for building access, meal plans and other data.
The IP-based Transaction Accelerator, AccessGuard 1000 system is designed to process high-volumes of IP based information queries generated from a “smart card” terminal device. The secure payment solution delivers the fundamental security needed to enable safe and reliable transport of sensitive end-user information.
NewNet’s Total Control STG enables fast processing of authorization requests, involving single-session transfer of small amounts of data.
