Another Successful SHRM Conference!

by david 8. July 2014 10:35
The dust has settled on another great year at the SHRM 2014 Annual Conference and Exposition and we can honestly say it was another great show! What an amazing event to be a part of and what an honor to be able to network with so many great professionals in the world of human resources! 

IDville participated as an exhibit sponsor for the fourth year in a row June 22 – 24 in Orlando, FL. We were able to talk with over 1,600 Human Resources professionals to see how identification is handled in their workplaces. 

SHRM was such a great opportunity to see current customers’ excitement about the success of their ID Maker® systems and to chat with others whose buildings are looking for a security upgrade through the use of ID badges. 

Some of the excitement of SHRM was, of course, watching people’s excitement to receive one of our badge accessory favorites – “bling” lanyards. Booth visitors also took part in games and raffles to win other great prizes, including a FREE ID Maker Value System

All-in-all SHRM 2014 was a great success. We’re so thankful to be able to get out of the office and meet some of our loyal customers and help others to create a secure environment for their team members. And of course, we’re already looking forward to SHRM 2015 in the sparkling city of Las Vegas!

Upgrade your ID badge printer with IDville

by Kelli 28. April 2014 10:44
IDville introduces a new “Trade In – Trade Up” program to its ID card printer customers. Those who own an ID card printer will be able to send their old printer back to IDville’s facility and will then receive a substantial discount on their brand new ID Maker® Zenius or Primacy ID card printer system. 

Customers will be able to take advantage of up to $200 in discounts with this innovative upgrade program. It’s as easy as talking with one of the Identification Specialists at IDville who will give instructions about how to send the current printer to the facility. Two to four weeks later, the customer will receive their credit based on which replacement ID Maker® one box system is chosen. 

The chosen ID Maker® one box system will include everything needed to print the first 200 ID badges along with a webcam and photo backdrop. Those ID badges can then be used for almost any needs the school, business or healthcare facility may have. ID badges are most typically used for quick identification of students and staff, door access, library book checkout, membership cards along with many other convenient practices. 

With companies looking to save as much money as possible, the Trade In – Trade Up program is a perfect way for them to upgrade their current ID card printer system without breaking the bank. 

Anyone interested in taking advantage of IDville’s “Trade In – Trade Up” program can call 1.866.438.4553 before July 31, 2014 to get started. The Identification Specialists at IDville make the trade-in and upgrade process easy and stress-free.

Trade shows: my secret to understanding customer needs!

by david 7. August 2013 08:53

After attending over 40 tradeshows within the past year I have seen my fair share of the country.  What I have really noticed is that almost everyone wears an ID badge!  From the contractors used at the exhibit halls, to my taxi cab drivers,  to the baggage handlers loading luggage onto the plane, everyone is wearing an ID badge!   

The one ID accessory that I see being used the most by women is our new Rhinestone lanyard. These new, sparkly lanyards have made it fun and stylish for woman to wear their IDs.  We recently gave these lanyards away at the SHRM conference in Chicago and our booth was almost overrun by human resource professionals wanting these shiny gems!

The most popular ID badge accessory I see being used by men are our carabiner badge reels.  These badge reels are sturdy and dependable and allow you to wear your ID badge on your belt loop and then clip onto your keys so that you don’t forget the ID the next day.  Make sure to check our carabiner badge reel supply as we also have reels that have a measuring tape and flashlight built into them!

One of the most rewarding things about being on the road promoting IDville is running into current customers who have one of our ID Maker ID systems. It’s great to hear them rave about their ID Maker system being easy to use while allowing them to make a professional badge that no other system can create.  Customers are always quick to flip open their purse or wallet to show me their ID and how they designed it with their logo and artwork.  Many of the customers that I worked with as they chose an ID printer use the custom card design that I originally made for them per their request!

Interested in an ID system and want to see a custom ID card design with your logo?  Fill out your info here and one of our sales reps will contact you ASAP.

I will be at the following shows over the next couple of weeks.  Stop in and say hello!

International Association of Fire Chiefs – Chicago 8/16 & 8/17

Midwest Security & Police Show – Tinley Park 8/20 & 8/21

Top 10 Reasons to Identify with ID Cards

by david 24. October 2011 11:20

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!
