Atrium Goes Live with New Rutgers Partnership

August 10, 2015

We’re pleased to announce the June 30th Go Live of our 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 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.  This was one of the smoothest large-system migrations I have experienced in over 25 years in IT.” said Juan Gorondi, Application Developer, IT R&D, Rutgers Dining Services, of the partnership.
