Review current card reader solution

Project Description

The request was initiated by Gerda Schilling:

07 Nov 2017: Kofax is not the correct solution for the high volume of cards.  IT needs a reliable electronic solution, but there is no available budget.  The cards will have to be aligned over campuses, and the Executive Director: T/L has to approve the recommendation.

Boeta Pretorius & Pieter Enslin will discuss the strategy (and future) with Robert Balfour.

The team investigating possible solutions should include ALL IT divisions and campus IT, UODL, TAG/TALL department and possibly Centre for Student Counselling and Development.
