Timely, Targeted Resources for Transitioning Your Campus

As colleges and universities resume classes, we understand the complexity schools face in balancing social distancing with the new thinking, tools, and technologies required to safely conduct business.

To assist institutions as they transition to contactless commerce and credentials, we've created this central resource that includes:

  • Our new ebook, Your Guide to Creating a Contactless Campus
  • Updates on products and features with contactless commerce and credential functionality and benefits
  • Quick links to touchnet.com news, blogs, podcasts, and webinars
  • Partner news
  • Curated content, and more

We all look forward to moving beyond the pandemic. Until then, visit this page often to stay informed of the latest, most relevant information and news for colleges and universities.
