The CBORD Group's goal is to ensure you're identified, housed, and well-fed. The company makes food service management software, as well as college campus cashless dining, housing management, student discount, and student ID card and security systems. CBORD's more than 6,000 customers include many major colleges and universities ( Boston University, University of Mississippi, The College of William & Mary), as well as hospitals, retirement homes, restaurants, and grocery stores. It distributes its software globally. Founded in 1975, CBORD is a subsidiary of high-tech industrial goods manufacturer Roper Industries.
CBORD’s products are available in the US and Canada, as well as in Australia and New Zealand, South Africa, and several European and Middle Eastern countries. It has offices in five US states (California, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, and Texas) and New South Wales, Australia.
One key to the company’s performance is the strength of its Xchange program, which includes technology and other firms who partner with CBORD in serving their shared customers. Program participants include Cisco, Ingersoll-Rand Security Technologies, Microsoft, Barnes & Noble College Booksellers, and Follett Higher Education Group.
In addition to its Xchange program, CBORD is focused on new offerings that meet the technology needs of its clients. In 2013 it added GET Food (online and mobile dining orders) to its cloud-based GET commerce platform. Also that year the company launched a smartphone app (CBORD Mobile ID) that allows customers to use their smartphones in place of their ID cards.
