Watch Transact's Case Study


Santa Clara University wanted to provide its students with a safer, more seamless experience on campus. Students wanted easier ways to access on- and off-campus amenities, order food, and pay for things. In the spring of 2020, the institution got the push it needed to transition to Transact Mobile Credential and Mobile Ordering to create a more technology-centric campus.


Santa Clara University worked with Transact to implement its Mobile Credential and Mobile Ordering. Mobile Credential offers numerous benefits for both the university and its students, from decreasing its carbon footprint by eliminating plastic student ID cards and the need to retool locks, to quicker, easier transactions, shorter wait times, and fewer lines. Mobile ordering offers just as many upsides and saves students time. The easy-to-use app gives them the flexibility to order, pay, and pick up food, books, and other necessities based solely on their busy schedules.
