Provide a modern, mobile-friendly experience

According to the Inside Higher Ed 2022 Survey of College and University Business Officers, campuses are facing declining nationwide enrollment due to ongoing cultural shifts, alternatives to higher education, and higher earning potential without a degree. Differentiate your institution with cloud-based tools that deliver the mobile-centric experience your students want.

Campus administrators must now do more with fewer resources, while students still have heightened student ID expectations. Free up time and save vital resources with Transact IDX®'s helpful automation and intuitive user experience.

Transact IDX® for Campus ID solutions case study

"We're confident that we're off to a strong start with Transact IDX®."
Keith Doyle, IT Systems Analyst and Applications Development Lead, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary challenge:

Gordon-Conwell's main residential campus is located in Hamilton, Massachusetts, but the college operates satellite campuses in Boston, Charlotte, and Jacksonville.

They needed digital management of meal plans such as balance checks and discounted points purchases to save time, given that students often ask cashiers for detailed account information.

Enhancing Student Services with Transact IDX®:

Transact’s mobile-first cloud transact system streamlined student services underpinned by the campus card, according to Keith Doyle, IT Systems Analyst and Applications Development Lead for Gordon-Conwell. It is already starting to pay dividends for students and staff.

"I like the fact that we can give people direct access to their accounts," says Doyle. "That is a huge win for us."
