The challenge

faced by Cardiff University

Cardiff University identified the need to provide a complete security solution for the issuing of high security printed and electronic degree documents to improve process efficiency and document security.

With document issuing taking up to 8 weeks and the risk of documents being lost in transit, the university identified the challenges they face to provide their students and graduates with printed degree documents.

Advanced secure solutions

Advanced Secure Technologies have worked with Cardiff University to produce their full suite of secure degree documents and also supply them with our certification security solution – Digital Certificates. Our solution streamlines their issuing process, allowing their students and graduates immediate access to their verifiable electronic degree certificates and transcripts.

Cardiff University’s experience

Using our solutions

“Cardiff University has worked with Advanced Secure for many years and they continue to provide excellent support and innovation for the issuing of our secure degree certificates and transcripts.

Having adopted Digital Certificates early on, we have been able to stay ahead of the many challenges posed by the pandemic. Thanks to this, our students and graduates can access, share and verify their secure electronic certificates and transcripts from anywhere using their smartphone devices.

This has meant that our graduates can share their secure eDocuments with employers and other institutes for further study within days of their award being conferred. By providing our students and graduates with a self-service portal, we have been able to uphold our student satisfaction during these difficult times.

Furthermore, Digital Certificates has enabled our university’s registry department to provide an online service for document reprints, verification requests and eDocuments for our Alumni.

Advanced Secure have continued to work closely with us in order to refine and enhance the system to meet our changing requirements.”
