TouchNet OneCard Mobile ID Now Available For Android
Northern Arizona University adds JacksCard for Android for student population
LENEXA, Kan. – TouchNet, a Global Payments company, now offers mobile student IDs for Android smartphones. After a successful rollout of mobile student IDs in Apple Wallet, Northern Arizona University is launching its JacksCard on Android ahead of the Fall semester through TouchNet’s OneCard Mobile ID.
NAU students can use Android mobile devices to complete any action they would previously complete with their physical JacksCard – access to dorms, buildings, libraries, dining, purchases at bookstores, purchase tickets, entry to events, and more. This new offering is made possible through integrations between TouchNet OneCard Mobile ID and the NAUgo app (powered by Modo Labs).
“We're excited to partner with TouchNet and Modo Labs to add Android users to our digital credential capabilities,” said Dr. Steve Burrell, NAU’s Chief Information Officer. “Our partners shared in our sense of urgency to create digital equity and extend these high-demand state-of-the-art capabilities to all of our students, faculty, and staff."
TouchNet’s OneCard Mobile ID for Android is available through either a school’s existing mobile app (such as the NAUgo app) or TouchNet’s 360u mobile app which streamlines the experience for all users. Additionally, OneCard Mobile ID offers more secure transactions that protect users’ data, better on campus security through improved access management, as well as advanced reporting in regards to student activities, payments, and point-of-sale transactions through an aggregated method that also protects each user’s privacy.
Beyond digital and physical security, mobile student IDs encourage more contactless transactions and help provide additional peace of mind as students, faculty/staff, and visitors come back to campus.
“The addition of mobile ID for Android is an important step to creating a truly contactless campus,” said Adam McDonald, President of TouchNet. “With our Android solution in place, we now offer mobile student IDs for nearly every student, helping to close the digital divide and deliver the experience students have come to expect on campus.”
OneCard Mobile ID for Android works wherever the physical campus ID is accepted and is available to all OneCard schools. To see if your campus is ready for mobile student IDs and to learn more about TouchNet’s integration with Android, visit the Mobile ID page.
