Blackboard acquires Cardsmith

Blackboard has acquired Cardsmith, a leading Cloud provider of campus- card solutions and turn-key- card-program-management services. CardSmith joins Blackboard’s growing set of student-identification services and broadens the credentialing-deployment options the company offers schools and institutions. CardSmith’s multi-tenant Cloud technology enables universities and K-12 schools and districts to deliver a comprehensive student-credential solution without requiring software management or physical servers. Because of the acquisition, Blackboard can now offer Cloud and locally hosted processing solutions with in-house or outsourced management to a much wider range of schools.
