Heartland launches college campus mobile apps

02 April 2012  |  2012 views  |  0 Source: Heartland Payment Systems

Heartland Payment Systems (NYSE: HPY) Campus Solutions division has launched three feature-laden, user-friendly mobile applications for higher education institutions and students, including the first-ever mobile payment application and virtual campus ID card.

Available for Android and Apple iOS, Heartland's new apps enable students and administrators to use their smartphones or mobile devices for on-campus purchases and to access information connected to Heartland's Campus OneCard™ System, a robust campus management system and multi-functional campus ID card. The new mobile apps include:

1. MyPay -- In addition to being a virtual campus ID card in lieu of their physical ID, the MyPay app enables students to make on-campus purchases at bookstores, vending and laundry machines, dining locations, print and copy stations, and more. MyPay can significantly reduce wait times, as students can send their payment information to the point-of-sale terminal while waiting in a checkout line, allowing cashiers to simply press a button to complete a transaction.

2. MyAccount -- Similar to a traditional bank account app, MyAccount enables students to manage their OneCard account, check balances, report a lost/stolen card, add funds, purchase services such as campus events, meal plans or parking passes, as well as upload photos for the student ID system.

3. OneCard Mobile Admin -- This app provides school administrators the ability to manage the OneCard System from their mobile device, giving them administrative features and functionality. Some of the functionality includes viewing student card use information and managing building and room access control for additional security benefits to meet the growing needs of campuses.

"While many higher education institutions are offering mobile apps for campus resources and information such as maps and events, our mobile apps help campuses meet student expectations while staying ahead of the on-campus technology curve," said Fred Emery, vice president and general manager of Heartland Campus Solutions. "Giving students convenient mobile payment and account management options provides tremendous benefits to higher education institutions while simultaneously delivering an enhanced and engaging experience to students."

Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA, will soon debut the MyPay mobile app for payments in the student union, other locations on campus, and for copy services and vending. "We're very excited to be one of the first colleges to implement these new cutting-edge mobile apps," said Doug Vanderpoel, director of auxiliary services at Mount Holyoke. "We try to deliver new and innovative ways to enhance the campus experience for our students, and this convenient and flexible technology will enable us to do that. Campus administrators also benefit from being able to manage the OneCard System and conveniently access critical information from mobile devices anytime, anywhere."
