Official Launch of Heartland’s OneCard Mobile App Marks First Single-Point Access to Campus Life

After successful completion of pilot testing at several colleges and universities, Heartland Payment Systems (NYSE: HPY) is officially launching its unique OneCard Mobile app – a fundamental shift in leveraging mobile technology to create a single point of access to campus life for students. Designed to operate on Apple iOS and Google Android platforms, OneCard Mobile is a proprietary app based on patent-pending technology that enables campus administrators to offer students a single resource that serves as a virtual ID card, a payment system for all campus services and activities, and for permission-based access to events, buildings, rooms, libraries, and other facilities.

“Students today are inseparable from their smartphones, so we decided to rethink the entire campus mobile technology model,” said Melissa Peirano, General Manager, OneCard for Heartland Campus Solutions ECSI. “Why not create a mobile app that combines a secure, pre-paid mobile payment system with student ID functionality that provides convenience to students, peace of mind to parents, and a helping hand to administrators looking to streamline operations while creating the right impact, the right connections, and a better image? That’s what OneCard Mobile does, and pilot testing proves that students, parents and campus administrators are enthusiastic on many levels.”

Campus administrators have expressed their approval for many reasons, ranging from optimized operations and sustainability to enhanced recruitment and increased sales for campus events, dining halls, and vending machines. OneCard Mobile is a configurable and scalable app that campus administrators can use as their single mobile resource for student needs. It provides more data than alternative systems, which can help administrators automate the communication of information and promotions based on student interests.

“In addition to enhanced services, security and convenience for parents and students, campus administrators like the optimization of operations OneCard Mobile provides,” said Fred Emery, Vice President, Sales, for Heartland Campus Solutions ECSI. “They can also configure the app to offer as much functionality as they’d like, and add new functionality as they go along. Anything with a URL can be easily added. Administrators also appreciate that they can brand the app with their own school colors and logos, helping them to build their campus brand.”

Parents appreciate the control they have over how much money is placed in secure OneCard pre-paid student accounts, while students express enthusiasm for the convenience of combining their student ID with mobile payments for campus goods and services, as well as access to campus facilities in a single mobile app.

To mark the occasion of the OneCard Mobile launch, Heartland Campus Solutions ECSI released a video showing how students enjoy using their OneCard Mobile app around campus during their day.
