The SmartSolutions® Suite is a modular, open-architecture solution, custom tailored for a wide range of environments. It is also a seamless integration of various technologies such as smart cards, radio frequency identification (RFID), biometrics, near field communication (NFC) to name a few. These technologies have been further engaged into automation devices such as copiers, vending machines, telephones, barriers, info kiosks etc. to come up with end to end solutions that would cater to the special needs of the clients.
The SmartSolutions® have been further enhanced with the business process in mind, here are some samples of the key industries for USC:
SmartCampus® is the USC’s response to the growing need to know real time information of the whereabouts of students and their activities in a campus at any given time. This information will serve as a security measure and a non-evasive way of monitoring the needs of the students. The school administration can immediately react to that needs, which has to be done in order to enhance the comfort and peace of mind of the parents. One good solution USC came up with is a module which sends short messaging services to the parents whenever their children comes in and out of the school premises. It is a very simple yet a practical solution for parents of young children.
The campus is a genuine mini community where the school’s administrators want to integrate convenience into accessing campus services in order for the students to focus on their studies and enjoy the total experience of learning.
It starts with issuance of smartcard ID’s which the students uses as fast throughput access control system, through the main gates, into the buildings and even as daily attendance into the classrooms. It can also be used as an e-purse for payments in the canteen, bookstores and libraries for fines and photocopying. This generally minimizes the risk on a student’s safety brought about by carrying large amount of cash, and increases ease of transaction. In addition, the same student ID is also their library card, gym card, medical card and parking card and alumni card later on.
SmartOffice® integrates with most intelligent building systems in the industry. Office administrators will greatly benefit from this product because this enables them to provide a secure and comfortable environment for their employees and tenants.
Other than for the usual time and attendance and access control, other office facilities such as lifts, copiers, personal computers other low voltage devices in the meeting rooms can be properly managed and maintained. It can also be used as an info kiosk card to ease up inquiries from employees to the HR department, where they can view download and print with the aid of their smartcards plus biometric devices their existing loans, leaves or other personnel related information.
SmartVisitor® is the ideal and smartest solution available for managing visitors and controlling their access to your facility. With its easy, unique and practical functionality, you will always be in total control.
You can even enter your own customized list of names to keep out former employees, solicitors, and other unwanted guests. In addition, the program can integrate with existing access control to further ensure your safety. You can also incorporate a digital or web camera to capture visitor photos and print to ID badges in less than 10 seconds.
Now is the best time to stop clumsy check-ins, late meetings, lax security and bad impressions. With SmartVisitor®, it will show your visitors that you value their safety & security and you really mean business!
SmartClub® enables secure capture and transfer of significant data and information by providing both front- and backend processing of accessibility rights to facilities. This also provides a seamless flow of leisure activities for golf courses, theme parks, resorts, and other membership-based organizations. From the entrance through a barrier, to info kiosk for members’ messages or information to the access of the lockers, spas, as e-purse for golf ball dispensers f & b payments etc.
In addition, availability of various form factors such as wrist tags, key fobs and watches imbedded with a contactless chip can easily be integrated in this type of environment to ensure convenience for club members. It also gives the members a sense of exclusivity if their club engages in futuristic technologies.
SmartCare® reduces the risk of losing important medical
records and history.
It ensures all pertinent data are easily retrievable in case a patient needs to be transferred to another clinic under the care of another physician. This also helps improve manageability of data, in that if a server bogged down, the patient can still be provided accurate medical care. This can be done through usage of hand held devices which can read the medical history of the patients anywhere, anytime!
USC has worked with special hospital a certified RFID product that not only manages patients’ information but also location and availability of hospital staff and critical medical equipments. This ensures high optimization in an environment where information critical to saving lives especially in times of medical emergencies.
SmartTag® provides the highest level of scanning automation and accurate inventory through automated control.
This solution works against pilferage and promotes accuracy for procedures in libraries, video rental shops, manufacturing facilities, airlines, as well as the agricultural sector. Once again special tags in various form factors, frequency and adaptability to other materials such as metal, magnets, small inventory such as jewelry has been developed for this solution.
USC has also integrated both the functionality of the smartcards and ICODE™ tags for this particular solution. In addition they have developed a system which converts the barcode information into the system called the BARSIM.
SmartPoints® caters to establishments like fine dining restaurants, specialty shops, sports houses, health and beauty shops, supermarkets and department stores, hotels and resorts. This card based loyalty solutions provides convenience and security in data collection and transmission. Loyalty points can be used immediately and even in an offline environment.
USC has developed more interesting solutions for this market segment which includes electronic raffles and instant printing of coupons from the info kiosks all enabled by the smartcard based loyalty card.
NFC technology can come in handy in these industries where the NFC phones can act as a low cost handheld solution. With this emerging technology the contactless payment will definitely garner wider acceptability.
SmartSecurity® aims to monitor attendance and control the access of unauthorized persons for special high security events or high security offices and buildings. In this solution additional secure printing of the cards are implemented to assure a multi level extra covert security feature which cannot be found but even the ID card holder cannot find himself without the proper tool and knowledge.
USC has developed a “visitor management module” which integrates picture taking and scanning and printing of cards for visitors which assures full accountability of every individual that enters the premises.
In addition, USC integrated NFC technology by issuing several personalized NFC phones to the VIP’s at the 12th ASEAN Summit which they proudly used as their access cards for the summit events locations.
SmartVille® monitors what goes on at home or apartment if and when the owner is out of town.
These would readily provide owners real-time information if unauthorized people enter the premises without their knowledge and approval, or if the cars and other equipment in the house are taken out or used without permission. This would generally promote a higher level of home security for people who often go out of town for business or vacation.
In addition all authorized access of family members or household help can be sent via SMS to the person authorized to receive such information even when they not in the premise.
USC has also developed a solution together with a lift supplier to be able to use the smartcards only for floors that the tenants are allowed to step out of. This ensures that no one will loiter around areas they are not allowed to access.
SmartMall® promotes interoperability
in tracking and maintaining loyalty points
for mall owners, retailers, and customers.
SmartToll® generates a smoother traffic flow on
expressways, thus giving the users comfort

a product and use their cards to earn loyalty
points. They can buy an item from one store
that is participating in the program and
their purchase points will be stored in
their smart cards for future redemption.
This solution may be used to eliminate vehicle
pile ups and bottlenecks especially during
rush hours, weekends and holidays.
SmartCity® is the ultimate testimony of USC’s relentless drive to pursue pioneering technologies.
The SmartCity® is the ultimate environment to enjoy the capabilities of the contactless smartcard. Each citizen will be issued a smartcard ID which will give them access rights to community centers, hospitals and schools. At the same time, this one card can be used for other purposes such as voters’ id, senior citizens privilege card, loyalty card, library card and many more.
With the right infrastructure this SmartCity® citizen ID card can migrate into an e-purse card which can be used for as a seamless transport ticketing, micro payments for and around various establishments within the SmartCity® area. It’s the best launch pad and inspiration for a much needed National ID in the Philippines.
SmartTranscription® ensures confidentiality in transcribing
medical records and, at the same time, maintains
a readily available source of data in case
the files need to be accessed by authorized
This also provides a faster and safer way
to store and transfer information from the
medical service provider to its clients.
