We have some exciting news to share- IDville plans to go on the road again and travel to 23 tradeshows across the United States this year! We plan to focus on the education, government, and healthcare industries. If you plan to attend any conferences in these industries this year, you may just happen to see us at the next show! 

At each tradeshow, ID card system and visitor management system demos will be performed on-site to demonstrate the ease-of-use of these products. The demonstration walks attendees through the card creation process, including photo taking, card design, and printing.

Attendees who visit our IDville booth will receive a free gift and the chance to win a Visa gift card. At last week’s International Health, Racquet, and Sportsclub Association show in Las Vegas, we raffled off 2 Cirque Du Soleil tickets. Congrats to Michael from the New England Fitness District- we hope you enjoyed the show! 

         Congratulations Michael!
Congratulations to Michael- our Cirque Du Soleil ticket raffle winner!

If you can’t make it to an upcoming tradeshow- don’t worry. I’d be happy to schedule a demo to show you how easy it can be to create employee ID badges or track visitors. Email me today or call one of our System Specialists at 1.866.438.4553.

New White Paper Shares the Importance of ID Card Systems and ID Badges

by dan 27. March 2012 07:00
dan

We are excited to announce the release of our white paper “ID Card Systems – Why Identify?“ This white paper is perfect if you’re researching the benefits an ID card system can bring to your workplace.

ID card systems outfit students, staff, and visitors with a photo ID badge that can be worn on the premises each day. It also helps to identify visitors who may not have a legitimate reason to be on the premises. You can use your ID card system to restrict access to the building by using proximity cards, also known as contactless cards, and this has been established as a workplace prevention strategy.

Download Now

The primary benefits of an ID card system are increased security and efficiency, and an ID card system can offer these benefits with at a lower cost than other forms of security. When you download the white paper, you’ll get clear examples of the benefits in both education and healthcare environments.

For example, schools that require students and staff to display an ID badge create a safe atmosphere. You’ll also find that ID badges are more cost effective and inviting in a school than other forms of security, such as cameras, guards, and metal detectors.  Plus, you can increase efficiency with ID badges by integrating library and lunch systems through a barcode on the badge. All this can be done by designing your own ID badges!

Healthcare organizations can also prevent both physical and intellectual security breaches by implementing an ID card system. With more medical records being stored electronically, it is crucial that you protect patient information by restricting facility access. ID badges can communicate authorization levels and help staff members clearly identify who does and does not belong.

Over time, an ID card system pays for itself, and you’ll quickly see financial, security, and morale returns on the investment. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of an ID card system can get detailed information and data in our “ID Card Systems – Why Identify?” white paper in the Knowledge Center.

Top 10 Reasons to Identify with ID Cards

by david 24. October 2011 11:20
david

Do you identify staff and visitors at your organization? Why not!? Here are my top ten reasons you should identify with an ID card system. 

1. Safety is everyone's priority - Not just building and grounds safety, but personal safety should be an important part of your building plan. Know who is roaming your halls and corridors and manage building or room access with a single card.

2. Time and attendance capability - Track hours for payroll with ease. You can transform an access card to a photo ID plus an access card by creating a plastic overlay that adheres to any proximity or HID card.

3. Make the best use of your time - Avoid labor-intensive paper laminate cards that don't last. Plastic ID cards have more functionality and security, and they print in less than a minute per card.

4. Make the best use of your dollars - An ID Maker System is all-inclusive without any hidden costs. Everything you need to get started today for creating and printing ID cards, right out of the box. Learn more about ID Maker Systems

 5. Appropriate for use in government and healthcare industries - Remain compliant with federal and state ID card and information mandates when you design and print your own ID cards.

6. Multiple functions on a single card - From a student perspective, incorporate a photo ID with cafeteria and library services. For the office, combine a time card with building access.

7. Reduce waste and costly reprints - Sturdy plastic ID cards last 20 times longer then a paper laminate card.

8. Reduce fraudulent reproduction - Make ID cards tamper-proof with unique security features such as holographic overlays, ghost photos, and printer memory card capabilities.

9. Create your own rewards/membership programs - Advertise your business with a rewards card, or print your own gift or key cards. The possibilities with an ID Maker System expand beyond identification.

10. Lifetime, technical support whenever you need it - You are never on your own! With every system purchase, you get free technical support for as long as you own the system. We're the experts, and we do it right!

Top 10 Workplace Safety Tips for National Safety Month

by david 24. May 2011 07:54
david

June is National Safety Month, and previous Identify Newsletters on the subject have recommended you take the month of June to refocus your safety efforts. This year, make it a goal to implement all of our top ten safety tips before the end of the month to help you create and maintain a safe environment for your employees.

1. Create a safety team. Form a team of employees who are enthusiastic about safety, and give them first aid, CPR, and fire prevention training.

2. Wear your ID card. When employees wear their ID cards, it’s easier to spot visitors and know if employees are in the correct location. Encourage all employees to wear their ID cards when in the building by giving them the proper ID card accessories.

3. Have a fire drill. When was the last time you had a fire drill at your organization? Schedule a fire drill for your entire organization to ensure employees know how to safely exit the building and where to meet once outside. Practice for inclement weather, such as tornados, too.

4. Choose breakaway lanyards. The release on breakaway lanyards is an added safety feature that protects the individual wearing the lanyard. If the lanyard were to be caught in a piece of machinery or wrapped around the individual’s neck, the lanyard would release and prevent injury.

Shop Safety Themed Products

5. Create an emergency communication system. Preparing for the worst is the best way to ensure the safety of your employees in an emergency. Create a communication system that you can use throughout your building if you were to have a safety breach or inclement weather. Test the system periodically to make sure it is in working order.

6. Implement a visitor management system. Part of creating a safe work environment is knowing who is in your building. A visitor management system tracks visitors and supplies them with an ID badge to wear while in the building.

7. Safeguard employee ID card information. If your employee ID cards have RFID chips in them, protect against identity theft with an RFID Secure badge holder. The holder blocks RFID signals and will ensure employee and company information isn’t stolen.

8. Don’t stand on swivel chairs. Train employees how to properly use equipment around the office and provide any tools they may need to safely do a job. For instance, you may need to purchase a step stool to help employees safely reach items on high shelves.

9. Restrict access to your building. Proximity ID cards sync with your access control system and only allows authorized individuals into your building. This is a simple way to protect your staff from any outside threats.

10. Reward great safety records. An effective way to improve safety in your organization is to reward safe behaviors. Recognize teams and individuals who have outstanding safety records and accomplishments with lapel pins or employee awards from Baudville, our sister company.

ID Card Systems in Healthcare Protect Information and Improve Safety

by david 10. May 2011 08:11
david

Healthcare professionals perform a balancing act everyday. More demands on their time, more hats to wear, and in economically challenging times they are doing it all for less compensation.

Technological advances make their jobs easier, however with that ease comes a new set of challenging circumstances. As facilities move towards electronic file keeping, the possibility of security breaches increase. A recent study indicates 1.5 million Americans have been victims of medical identity theft costing over $28.6 billion in damages.

Motivation may be high to commit medical identity theft, but federal mandates are now more stringent to deter this costly crime. The HITECH Act put in place weightier consequences including steep fines for those that violate privacy protection laws, as well as a wider definition of what information is protected, and who is responsible for protecting it.

Create a Safe Healthcare Environment with ID Card Systems What this means to the healthcare industry is convenient data housing but with increased accountability to manage that information, and prevent it from being compromised.

A key component in the prevention of security breaches and overall safety is an ID card system. Medical facilities are not limited to employees. Hundreds, maybe thousands, of patients, visitors and vendors stream through their doors every day posing countless opportunities for sensitive information to fall into the wrong hands. Identifying who is in the building at all times, and for what purpose, reduces the security risk and puts everyone at ease, so the focus becomes exceptional care and service - not hall monitoring. Let an ID card system do that for you.

Ultimately what you're looking for in an ID card system is value - manageable up front cost on a system that delivers on safety. When looking for an ID card system, consider:
 Who will be using the system?
 What features do you need?
 How much can you spend?
 What are the latest applications in the industry?

For more information regarding ID card systems in healthcare, read our complete white paper, “Secure ID Card Systems for the Healthcare Industry.”
