FREMONT, CA: Transact Campus Inc. has developed a Capacity Management solution to follow the social distancing necessities and keep the students and staff safe on campus. With the help of Transact Capacity Management, educational facilities can manage the number of students in a specific campus area at one time.

According to Erica Bass, Vice President of Product Management at Transact, “Our client campuses need new ways to control the flow of their students in dining halls, bookstores, libraries, and more. Transact is delivering new capabilities with our mobile solutions to best serve students, faculty, and staff, and overcome unique challenges presented by social distancing and contactless interaction requirements.Contactless payments and authorized access? Check. Mobile Ordering? Check. And now, our capacity management solution is helping campuses manage reservations for dining halls and book pickup and set limits for crowds to help with schools’ plans for managing their on-campus students.”

Transact Capacity Management can even assist the institutions in managing windows of time for arrivals and maximizing dining halls, residence halls, and other locations. Students can schedule reservations for dining halls, campus move-in, and course material pickups, and appointments with the assistance of healthcare providers, advisors, and student help desk assistants. The schools can also benefit by regulating capacity limits with events requiring registration to evaluate attendance and overwhelming arrival slots.

Transact’s COVID-19 Response Information offers more resources like the Five Strategies, Support a Safe Return, Campus eBook, and solutions for higher education leaders for supporting the safe reopening of campuses.
