Flexible Card Systems for universities and schools of higher education

Card system for universities

The CCM CampusCard Manager from IDENTA is a user-friendly, flexible card management solution for higher education institutions and student unions.

A single, multifunctional student card, the so-called CampusCard, is the goal of many higher education institutions and student unions. Many desired applications and functions when selecting suitable chip technology - all combined on a secure chip card for students and administrative staff.  

An overview of possible university applications and functions 

• Student functions: Student ID/staff ID, validity period, debiting of semester fees
• Semester ticket for public transport: VDV applet
• Access cards for car parks, buildings, sports halls
• Library: ID, costs for inter-library loans etc.
• Canteen, cafe bars, vending machines on campus: Payment with a card
• Printer card and copier card and much more

The Campus Card Manager card management solution is much more than just a card system. The CCM collects and combines card-relevant data from manufacturing to the personalisation, during the service life up until the expiry date of the student ID or until it is lost/blocked (card lifecycle management). CCM provides this data and information at a later date for selected applications. In addition, card layouts are created and managed using the card data. If desired, the multifunctional student cards can be personalised, printed and coded - perfect for the increasing challenges of effective campus management!
