A Card Management System (CMS) is the component of the Information System (IS) in charge of managing the life cycle of the multiservice card, from its creation to its deactivation. As such, it communicates with the other components of the establishment's IS (management of education, human resources, access controls, print management, etc.). It also exchanges with the services of its partners (IZLY, European student card, transport, partner establishments, etc.).
Commercial solutions exist and are widely used in French higher education (Unicampus, P4P, ...). However, the community felt the need to equip itself with a specific tool, developed within it, perfectly suited to its ecosystem.
The ESUP-Portail consortium therefore took charge of its development, entrusted to the University of Rouen Normandie: ESUP-SGC. The CNCEU is a partner of this open source solution, already adopted by a dozen establishments in France. It natively and quickly integrates the services of our community (IZLY, Europen Student Card, etc.).
