Ithaca, N.Y.-based the CBORD Group, which provides campus cards, access control and food service solutions to universities and other industries, plans to move its Farmington, N.Y. training facility to Duluth, Ga. near Atlanta to make its training operations more easily accessible for its more than 6,000 clients.
Additionally, the new facility will provide a blended learning approach supporting both classroom teaching and online learning capabilities.
The new training facility will be shared with CBORD’s sister company, Horizon Software International, a provider of software and services to the K-12, healthcare, and military markets.
CBORD’s upgrade and investment in this new training facility stems from client-driven feedback. Users say it is sometimes difficult to get to the New York client education center. Duluth is just 27 miles from Atlanta, which hosts Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport that serves more than 25 airlines.
CBORD’s new facility will provide education on CBORD’s campus and cashless card systems, food and nutrition service management software, integrated security solutions, housing and judicial process management software, and more. The new facility’s training schedule will become effective in October 2009.
