SAN FRANCISCO and ITHACA, N.Y., OCTOBER 1, 2018 Ulyngo, the leading multi-channel marketplace for universities, announces a partnership with CBORD, a leading provider of campus card technology for colleges and universities. The partnership enables CBORD account holders to enjoy a more seamless payment experience when transacting through their campus Ulyngo marketplace environment.
Ulyngo’s marketplace unifies and centralizes the daily commercial activities of students, offering a single location for a student to buy a bike from a new friend, register for a university-wide 5K run, pay their club membership dues, and sell-back a textbook to their campus bookstore. Thanks to the CBORD-Ulyngo integration, students can now complete all of those transactions, and more, with their campus card.
Giving universities the ability to streamline student transactions was key in the development of this partnership.
“CBORD is committed to providing solutions that help our customers improve the student experience,” says Rob Wakelee, CBORD product owner. “Students can now use their campus account via the GET CBORD Student solution to pay for academic and lifestyle necessities in the Ulyngo marketplace environment.” GET CBORD Student is a cloud-based solution and app from CBORD that offers students a way to pay for food and services both on and off campus using the funds on their campus card.
The CBORD–Ulyngo partnership enables an integration between the two technology solutions. The integration can be offered to a campus quickly and easily, benefiting both university clients and end users.
“We’re excited to be partnering with CBORD, one of the leading technology providers in all of the higher education market,” says Alex Jekowsky, founder and CEO of Ulyngo. “Universities have been asking for this integration to happen, and we’re thrilled to be pairing our product with their systems in order to provide a great service for universities, student organizations, and college students across the country.”
CBORD and Ulyngo plan a rollout of the integrated mobile and web marketplace solution in the first quarter of 2019.
