Prediction #1 –  Mobile Becomes Primary Enterprise Credential

 

With TSA adoption of mobile identification, food contractor mobile payments, and "geo-fencing" for mobile door access, campuses will transition to virtual student credentials and enterprise mobile privileges for increased security, institution cost savings, and greater student satisfaction over the next five years.

 

Prediction #2 – Campuses "Leapfrog" Over Contactless To Mobile

 

Many institutions will opt to avoid Contactless (13.56 MHz) and "leapfrog" directly to virtual credentials and mobile-ready applications throughout their campuses for reduced long-term infrastructure and operational costs.

 

Prediction #3 – Campus Card Marketing Focuses On Social

 

With global mobile communications, campuses will focus most of their marketing on social media - including virtual coupons and geo-activated promotions.

 

Prediction #4 –  Mobile Apps Replace Card Readers

 

With the dramatic increase of virtual campus card credentials (smartphones), the number of "unattended" campus credential applications will increase via mobile apps.

 

Prediction #5 –  Mobile Collaborative Partnerships Increase

 

Mobile application facilitators will increase their partnerships with campus multi-application system vendors to provide institutions with more integrated mobile applications.

 

Prediction #6 –  Plastic Campus Cards Become "Optional"

 

As Mobile Millennial students and employees embrace virtual campus credentials (smartphones), mandatory issuance of plastic campus cards will diminish.

 

Prediction #7 – Downsizing Of Campus Card Vendors

 

Of the five prominent campus card system vendors and seven campus card multi-application systems, at least 50% will be sold or merged into existing systems by the end of the decade.

 

Prediction #8 –  Increased Universal Technology Options

 

With global technology standards, the desire for non-proprietary equipment and credentials (supported by multiple vendors) will increase significantly by institutions - especially in an era of increased vendor turnover.

 

Prediction #9 – Door Access Vendors Conundrum

 

Despite strategic focus on enterprise campus security, door access system vendors will generate increased market confusion with competitive technological rhetoric and proprietary systems.

 

Prediction #10 –  Mobile-Ready Vending Captures Market

 

Vending machine contractors will provide more institutions with embedded, mobile-ready, multi-credential, wireless readers that are vendor-agnostic and alleviate PCI issues.
