A new handheld card reader from The CBORD Group will help schools track attendance at athletic events and other outdoor activities. Later, data can be uploaded to the school’s database.
Ithaca, NY–The CBORD Group, Inc. recently released the Troubadour card reader for Odyssey PCST, providing clients with mobility for privilege verification and debit transactions in an offline environment.
Ticketing, roll call, and attendance tracking are moving away from being paper-based on many campuses. The Troubadour streamlines these and other functions, while providing comprehensive reporting capabilities.
Designed to record transactions at outdoor and athletic events, the Troubadour verifies transactions against a “snapshot” of the Odyssey PCS database. Once the event is completed, transactions are uploaded through a user interface. Reporting is available from both the terminal and Odyssey PCS.
“Troubadour is simple to use, and requires very little training and no technical expertise,” says David Parson, OneCard Manager at the University of Indianapolis. “It has been very well received on-campus, and has allowed us to expand our use of the Odyssey PCS system with very little effort.”
