Timber Single Sign-On(SSO)

Timber Single Sign-On (SSO) Integration

Every campus has a portal where Students and Faculty login to view their resources, schedules, news, etc. With the addition of a new module, your Timber website will integrate with your Campus Network.

No matter what device they use (or where they are physically located), when Students and Faculty are signed-in to your Campus Network, they will also be signed-in to your Timber website.

How does the SSO Integration make your job easier?

  • Provides a seamless experience for students, as the bookstore’s website becomes “just another Campus resource”.
  • Eliminates customer confusion about usernames/passwords (which are no longer needed)
  • Eliminates Textbook Fraud
  • The Student e-Mail address and ID are auto-filled on the Checkout page
  • The previous order-history will be preserved with their existing Bookstore/Timber account

Customers without a Campus login (parents/alumni/fans) can still use the site as they currently do.

For Bookstores that process Faculty/Department orders, your website will recognize Faculty too! Their orders can be processed as reservations, rather than forcing them to make a credit-card or FA payment.

What are the costs?

  • There is a one-time installation fee of $760. We based this on an average setup time of about eight hours.
  • There is a $10 monthly cost, as the app requires us to set up (and maintain) a separate server to support your site’s SSO login requests.
