University Campus Card Schemes and Student Attendance Monitoring Solutions
As technologies have evolved over the years, universities have built up a variety of Campus Card Schemes to match their needs. Whilst each individual scheme has its own merits, university administration staff report finding that correlating all the information into useful data is becoming an uphill struggle. Also, with the increased security requirements and political pressures on the UK Border Agency, university staff have to look closer at how they can better monitor the attendance of overseas students.

An Integrated Campus Card Scheme provides
- A Student Attendance Monitoring Solution
- Increased Student Retention
- International Student Monitoring
- Meeting the requirements of the
UK Border Agency
- An Integrated Cashless Payment
- Increased Cafeteria Trade
- Reduced Costs from Handling Cash
- Excellent Opportunities for Branding
- Harmonisation of their Database
- Increased Campus Security
Further integration of a cashless payment system for copy and print, on-site cafeterias, bars and sports facilities increases security whilst reducing shrinkage and the actual cost of handling cash. Companies like MasterCard have developed solutions for cashless payments but a university may require a more bespoke or closed loop solution. Fenbrook Consulting can advise on the implementation and business benefits of all the various cashless payment solutions including the mobile wallet.

When the University of York underwent major expansion they were looking for a way of simplifying their various campus card and token schemes. Fenbrook Consulting were engaged to carry out in-depth research into the uses of each scheme and to propose scheme objectives which were easy to manage, easy to use, secure and made business sense.
“I was very pleased with your approach to the project, the quality of your research on our behalf, and the breadth of knowledge on the subject that you were able to focus on the University’s thinking in this area.”
– Tim Bird, University of York
Trevor has recently finished a report for The University of Bedfordshire on the various Attendance Monitoring Solutions with particular emphasis on the need to satisfy the UK Border Agency’s regulations.
