Villanova University’s student ID program, known as Wildcard, can now be used to order print jobs via the Web from the school’s two print centers, which recently adopted WebCRD from Rochester Software Associates to handle online Web-based job submissions and automated production.
Now, due to a partnership between RSA and Villanova’s campus card provider, The CBORD Group, users can pay for print jobs with the same ID card they use throughout the university.
“The integration between WebCRD from RSA and the CS Gold campus card solution from CBORD makes it easy for cardholders to print documents quickly and easily, and helps the university reduce labor and overhead costs,” said Read Winkelman, CBORD’s vice president of sales for colleges and universities.
“Students wanted to be able to submit their papers and reports, often a mix of color and black-and-white pages, anytime of the day or night and not have to think about the printing process,” said Michael George, Villanova’s director of central services. “Professors wanted to finish writing exams at home and then submit the exams to be ready for an early morning class.”
Students, faculty and staff simply log into their own account on the system and submit their documents in a secure process. Upon production, Villanova faculty and staff orders are hand delivered, while students pick up their jobs at the print center where most production work takes place.
