National Administrative Professionals Day

IDville and our other Baudville brands all have a common mission to make your workplace better. Not just better, but the BEST! That means we have a lot of work to do but one of the main pillars is to make all employees feel welcome and appreciated. Today is an awesome opportunity to help our followers do just that. If you haven’t heard yet, today, April 27, 2016, is National Administrative Professionals Day and it’s all over the place; just look on Twitter. We really hope you thought ahead and planned a fun gift and or celebration for anyone in that role but if you didn’t…

 

 

…here are some last minute ways to appreciate your co-works. (Note: You don’t have to be the boss to show appreciation!)

    1. Quickly and quietly have the staff sign a Thank You card.
    2.  Write a list of projects you couldn’t do without them and share with the whole team.
    3. Cater a fun lunch for the office/team.
    4.  Order flowers for immediate delivery (Maybe write a note suggesting you ordered it days ago?)
    5. Put in some effort to think or another yourself! 

 

 

Best Practices and other notes:

  • Your effort level is noticed so plan ahead and put some real thought and effort into celebrating your co-workers.
  • This practice can be and should be done with more people than just co-workers (family, significant other, friends, etc.)
  • Think about their likes and dislikes and plan something they would like. A surprise party is fun but not everyone’s cup of tea.

How to Pick Your First ID Card System

by Kelli 21. April 2016 11:28

Boss: We need to make our workers and workplace more secure.

Employee: Duh.

Boss: Let’s implement the use of employee identification cards that opens locked doors.

Employee: Sounds like a great idea.

Boss: That’s because I’m always right.

(Employee rolls eyes)

Boss: Good, go do it.

Employee: Oh. Me? Okay…Google here I come.

 

If you are looking for your first ID making system you probably have no idea what you’re doing or where to start. This post will walk you through the questions you need to ask yourself before you are ready to invest in a system for 5+ years.

1. Should we outsource our card making needs or make them in house?



2. How many cards will we need to print per year?

3.  Will we need to print on one or both sides of the cards?

  • The backs of cards are great for contact information, a product cheat sheet, fire alarm instructions and more.  

4. Will we only need PVC cards or will we need mag strips, bar codes, proximity cards or other?

5. What else will we need? Software, camera, ink, lanyards and other accessories?

6. What’s my budget?

We have a lot of helpful information on IDville.com aimed at helping employees like you look good in front of your boss. Some of those pages include FAQ’s, IDville Advantage, Video Library, Info Packets and more. If you choose to make your ID cards in house and know all your needs, you are ready to choose your system! You can search by printing volume and one vs 2 sided printers. You can purchase all your printer needs and card accessories right from our website or you can call our system specialists at 1.866.438.4553 and they can walk you through the process and answer any detailed questions you have. Whether you order online or call in, you will receive a designated account manager that will stick with you for the life of your printer if you have any questions with your ID system at any time.

Hopefully this was helpful with your ID Maker decisions and we are always a call away if you have any questions.

Happy printing!

IDville and Financial Literacy Month?!

April is Financial Literacy month and that may not seem to have a direct connection with our brand, but we always do our best to help our customers make the best choices with their hard earned money…or office budgets. That’s why we focus on two things… relationships and value.

Relationships: IDville has numerous ID Maker Systems and plenty of other accessories to choose from, so how do you know what your needs are going to be and what products are going to solve them? Simple. Our System Specialists. If you are looking to invest in the security of your workspace, I recommend talking with one of them. Each caller receives a dedicated account manager so that we can start to gain a real understanding of the customer’s needs over time. You can give them a basic understanding of your organization and what your security goals are and they can start to figure out what best fits your needs so you aren’t ordering something that you won’t need. They will also be your trusted contact for any questions you have about the system and accessories.

Value: With all our ID Maker printer systems, you receive a multi-year warranty, lifetime call support, a 30 Day Guarantee and access to any accessory you can think of. Our goal is to better your workplace and with all these added benefits, you can sleep soundly knowing that if anything goes wrong, you have the whole IDville team behind you. We will even send you a working ID Maker for free if you are having trouble with yours, while we figure out the problem!

Financial Literacy month is a good time to re-evaluate your purchases and invest in what will add value to your workplace. If you have questions and want to start a relationship with one of our System Specialists, please call 1.866.438.4553. If you want to simply learn more about IDville products and what we stand for go ahead and request a free info pack. Shop smart and invest in what matters.
