Watch Transact's Case Study


Purdue University wanted to deliver its students a “swipe and go” experience that made it easy to navigate the campus and perform secure transactions without having multiple cards. The university sought a partner capable of delivering secure experiences capable of exceeding student expectations with one card for all aspects of student life.


Following an exhaustive RFP process, Transact Campus ID Card Production was selected because it enabled Purdue to provide students with one card for managing student access on campus, as well as performing seamless transactions ranging from vending machine purchases to laundry loads. The secure solution alleviates the need for cash and shows instant balance updates so students can effectively manage their account balance. Through its partnership with Transact, the university now delivers one connected ID and payments experience.
