Atrium Goes Live with New Rutgers University Partnership

**June 30, 2015: Atrium, the exciting new campus card solution, is pleased to announce the Go Live of its new campus card solution partnership with Rutgers University.** Rutgers, founded in 1766, is one of the oldest colleges in America, and was one of the nine “Colonial Colleges” founded before the Revolution. It has since grown into a leading research university with several campuses across New Jersey. With more than 66,000 students and 22,000 faculty and staff Rutgers is one of the largest universities in the country. The Rutgers Atrium solution comprises over 179,000 cardholders and twelve best-in-breed systems across four campuses including Sequoia (dining), Barnes & Noble (bookstore), Follett (bookstore), USATech/Apriva/Canteen (vending), MEI/Apriva/Pepsi (vending), Pharos (print/copy), USATech (laundry), DishOUT (on and off campus with over 70 merchants), ITC (activity), Banner (student information system) and JSA StudentLink (online account management).  Tammy Johnson, President & CEO of Atrium, said of the partnership, “Rutgers University appreciated Atrium as a modern, non-proprietary, hosted campus card solution that meets their demanding meal plan requirements, connects to their numerous best of breed campus systems and is backed by a team of campus card professionals offering 24/7 client care - all for a fixed cost with turn-key implementation.   Especially exciting for us is that adding a university of Rutgers' size to our Atrium family realizes our vision that Atrium is a great solution for institutions of any size.” “The requirements for our campus card solution have changed substantially in recent years with the advent of mobile payment, need for open connectivity to an array of disparate campus systems and increasing complexity in our meal plans. We determined Atrium best met these requirements. We have found Atrium to be incredibly responsive and our Go Live was achieved on schedule.”, said Juan Gorondi, Application Developer, IT R&D, Dining Services, of the partnership. About Atrium: We started with a simple question: What do campus card directors and administrators need in a modern card system? What would make your life easier? What would save you money, but still provide a better experience for your students? We formed a Customer Advisory Board, including card administrators and industry leaders, from institutions large and small, and engaged them in discussion. They told us they wanted an intuitive user interface, accessible anywhere, anytime. They asked for robust reporting, with point and click tools. They sought security, 100% availability and personal service from seasoned card industry professionals. They were under pressure to do more for less, and provide an improved experience for students. We came up with a campus card management solution with the functionality of traditional systems… re-imagined for the future. Atrium was born. Atrium is powered by JSA Technologies, renowned for personalized service from seasoned card administrators.  Atrium is an extension of proven card system technology in use today at over 100 of the nation’s leading universities and colleges. Atrium technology has securely processed over $2B in financially sensitive transactions since 1998 without incident and is used today by over 1.4 million students.
