INSIDE Contactless smartcard technology has been implemented in the Australian International School Singapore (AISS), which is the first school in Singapore to integrate the CAMPUS cashless payment application into the identity cards carried by staff and students.
This CAMPUS system is being deployed by Smart Card Innovations to provide multi-application card solution including identification and optional cashless payment for transactions within the school campus, for students, staff and parents. This system allows students and staff to conveniently purchase food at the canteen, uniform and stationary, pay for excursions, photocopies, prints, track attendance, and work with existing libraries infrastructures. The AISS smart card is a contactless card with a smart chip which stores the cardholdes personal information and provides access to a cash value that can be topped up using the eNETS Virtual Account, an online payment service that is powered by NETS account. The unique finance arrangement allows schools to participate in the program at very little set up cost and once the system is operational it is self-funding. The eNETS Virtual Account Card is a cashless,electronic payment system that stores monetary value and user information on secure servers at NETS. Virtual Account VCard account holders can use the Internet to access their accounts and make secure payments via the Internet, mobile phones and smart cards. Should a card be lost, staff, students and parents can access their eNETS Virtual Account VCard account online and disable the card.
