    Hi Kathleen, In regards to developing customer service standards, I would recommend that you review the 'Clientelling: Beyond Customer Service' webinar on our Recorded Events page. This session provided a lot of great information about how customer service standards can be elevated while working both with vendors and clients. Hopefully that provides ... Read More

Our main challenge is finding a software solution that allows one point-of-sale to accomplish selling products as well as processing parking services (daily permits, annual passes, locker rentals).

We have discussed mandatory plans but wondered if they worked for a community college ... Read More

    Thanks Ray! After looking at the articles, I would never do this program without a refund policy at the end of the semester. It is a student engagement, retention type program. I think it is very important to communicate that what we are trying to do is engage students in campus life and the academic environment. The refund portion is important for ... Read More

    I thought I would pass these articles of Suffolk County Community College along who implemented this in/around 2015.  I believe this may be one of the only CC to do such a thing.  Their dining vendor is also the UofM's vendor.  I think Danny points out two great examples.  My prior school who also got the idea from the UofM.  I have been told this may ...

    David,  I would encourage you to look at the Dining Dollars Plan at the University of Tennessee or the University of Memphis. I think the plan would work great on a Community College campus. it is a fully refundable program that allows students a small amount of money for dining only per semester and then refunds any unused portion at the end of each ...
