RICHMOND, Va. and SAN MATEO, Calif., April 26, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Atrium, a premier provider of mobile-first campus card management solutions, and Zippin, the leader in checkout-free technology, have announced a partnership to bring frictionless commerce to universities and colleges across the U.S. The partnership will deliver convenience and speed for students, faculty, staff and visitors, and flexible, quick-to-deploy AI technology for dining and retail operators.
Zippin combines multimodal sensors, vision cognition technology, and machine learning to provide the best frictionless in-store experience for its partners, including Aramark Corporation, Compass Group, Levy, Lawson (Japan), and Americanas (Brazil). Its checkout-free technology is well-suited for high traffic areas like college campuses, sports venues, airports, convention centers, amphitheaters, and convenience stores, and is a natural complement to Atrium's proven card system technology.
Tammy Johnson, Atrium president & CEO, said, "Atrium has been reimagining the campus card for the mobile generation in partnership with our clients since our launch. Partnering with Zippin to bring students a mobile-first, checkout-free dining and retail experience is a next step in this journey. Students will embrace the convenience, and operators will reap operational improvements."
"Today's students are typically digital natives, looking for fast, frictionless experiences everywhere in their lives. It's all about harnessing the power of technology to make everyday experiences better," said Gary Jacobus, senior vice president of business development at Zippin. "Time-strapped students no longer have to decide between making it to class on time or grabbing a snack or drink. Checkout-free technology eliminates lines and the need to make a trade-off. We're thrilled to bring our AI-driven approach to our partnership with Atrium."
