Smart Products in Education
Throughout the UK education system, smart card technology is being solidly embraced by schools, colleges, and universities.
Multiple applications are being stored on the smart card. Examples include physical access control, recording attendance and punctuality, providing secure access to IT Systems, and enabling cashless payments. This is raising the level of protection for students and facilitating better services.
Although many educational establishments remain on legacy systems; we feel it is only a matter of time before smart card technology will be deployed to bring their applications and services together.
Universal Smart Cards has been at the heart of this drive helping educational establishments explore smart card technology, the standards and how to get the best print results.
We also advise on easy ways to safely carry cards and how to print and encode smart cards in one pass for easier deployment.
