[Nick]Nameplate: Bacon Boy

by Maggie 22. June 2015 14:01

Do you have any nicknames for your coworkers or employees? Create a custom engraved nameplate to proudly display them. It’s such a simple way to boost company morale! Here’s an example of one proudly displayed at IDville. It never fails to make me grin! 

It is my honor to introduce you to one of our super-system specialists at the ‘ville, Lee, more commonly referred to as “Bacon Boy.”  

You might be wondering-“How is one deemed the ‘Bacon Boy’?”

Well, the story behind the infamous “Bacon Boy” is really a pretty simple one. Here it is, straight from the horse’s mouth:

Bacon Boy: “During my interview process, Jennifer (sales manager) asked the hard-hitting questions and then informed me that two senior members of the team were going to interview me also.

In walked two experienced system specialists, Jason and Alan. They introduced themselves, and then Jason took over. After a few minutes he turned to Alan for his turn of questioning.

Alan said with a stern face ‘I have one important question. You can take as much time as you need to think about this, but think hard about your answer before you reply. What is your opinion on…bacon?’

I couldn’t decide if I was more shocked by the question at hand or that he was able to hold a straight face while asking it. Little did I know that what I was about to say next would create an identity for me that would stick.  

I said, ‘I think bacon is one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind.’ With the tension broken, I proceed to inform them about a revolutionary way to cook bacon called the bacon weave (shown right). A bacon weave is exactly what it sounds like-strips of bacon woven together to create a blanket of bacon.   

From that moment on, I received multiple inquires to the art of the bacon weave and was deemed bacon boy. They even created a custom nameplate for my special nickname that I display proudly at my desk!”

Well there you have it folks-the story behind the one-of–a-kind nameplate and the nickname.

And nobody ever wonders what Lee will bring as his dish to company potlucks anymore…bacon of course!

If you call in today, you might get lucky enough to talk to this super-system specialist!

For more information on custom nameplates, visit us online at www.idville.com or call one of our specialists at 1.866.438.4553. To speak with Bacon Boy, dial extension 176.

Student ID cards: Securing the Identity Chain

by Maggie 28. May 2015 12:05
Maggie

Security is a made up of a chain of elements. Don’t let the campus card be the weakest link.

 

In a recent article from CR80 News, Andrew Hudson warns his audience about the use of university ID’s in orchestrating identity theft or other fraudulent activities.

Universities and schools- be aware of this!

There have been cases of students who have fraudulently obtained an ID card that is then used to obtain more secure IDs. Should this student then use the newly acquired credentials for identity theft or criminal acts, the paper trail could be traced back directly to the university. 

For example, to obtain documents such as a Social Security card, the applicant must first produce a U.S. driver license, state-issued ID card or U.S. Passport. But if for whatever reason these documents are not available, other documents including the student ID card will be considered.

Even though using a university ID to participate in illegal activity is an extreme case, it is worth paying attention to as identity theft and fraud becomes more advanced. “If not for the sake of the cardholders, then it should be done to avoid the liability that a university could incur if its credentials were used illegally.”

Student ID cards are a key security feature of campus life, but should only be accepted within campus limits. In order to protect individuals and universities, student IDs should not hold legitimacy for obtaining more secure IDs. 

Student ID cards are a strong link on the identity chain, let’s keep them that way!

To learn more about how IDville can keep your student ID link strong on the security chain, contact one of our system specialists at 1.866.438.4553, or shop online at http://www.idville.com.

ID cards in the news: IDNYC

by Maggie 26. May 2015 10:07

“8 Million New Yorkers. 1 Card For All Of Us!”

Starting in January of 2015, New York has been issuing free municipal identification cards for all New York City residents…and the line is out the door and wrapped around the city.

What is IDNYC?

It's a government-issued photo ID card available to all New York City residents over the age of 14, including undocumented immigrants, who in the past had no identification they could use to access services such as open a bank account, use a city library or use to pay utilities.

“IDNYC benefits every city resident, including the most vulnerable communities—the homeless, youth, the elderly, undocumented immigrants, the formerly incarcerated and others who may have difficulty obtaining other government-issued ID.”

The goals of this new card are to enhance public safety, grant access to services to the public, and provide a series of benefits to cardholders, like free one-year membership to museums, zoos, concert halls, and botanical gardens.

Right away, the demand was overwhelming! Lines were wrapped around the building and appointments were booked up to six months to get an ID card

Over 100,000 New Yorkers have already benefited from this, and a projected half a million immigrants will benefit from the card.

Although there have been concerns regarding some potential negatives of this card, there have already been a lot of positive outcomes.

Here are just a few:
• The increased access to cultural institutions is creating an erudite population.
• Identification decreases the number of individuals who are arrested for not being able to verify their identity, which reduces stress on the overwhelmed courts and crowded prisons.
• Identification (while not providing work authorization) legitimizes a person in an employer’s eyes.

Identification is something we often take for granted-until we don’t have it. It is easy to overlook how essential identification is to thrive in a community.

This movement is spreading to other cities, providing new opportunities for those who didn’t have means to identification before. With safety and the well-being of city residents in mind, this new municipal identification program is doing great things to build a strong community and enhance the city experience of all city residents. What a great way to contribute to the beautiful American melting pot!

SHRM 2013 was a success for IDville!

by Kelli 25. June 2013 10:00
Kelli
After being back for a week we are finally caught up from all of the excitement that the 2013 Society for Human Resources Management Annual Conference brings every year and what a success it was! It was a packed show with over 14,000 attendees and 700 exhibitors. Identification Expert, David, commented that “the exhibit hall was packed! It was great seeing so many vendors from around the country giving away awesome gifts while pitching their products and services. It was impressive!” It was a very successful third year attending this conference. 
 
IDville participated as an exhibit sponsor June 16-18 in Chicago at the McCormick Place Convention Center. We were able to speak with over 1,300 HR professionals about the importance of photo identification and security in the workplace. 
 
As a new addition to the IDville team, it was great to meet new people and see their excitement towards implementing and/or updating their current photo identification system. It seemed as though many of the HR professionals I chatted with were either frustrated with their outdated ID system or their current system was simply too complicated. By having our ID Maker Systems on hand we were able to perform live demos to show how easy it is to design and print IDs from your desktop.  
 
Part of the fun was seeing the eagerness of the attendees to check out our new bling lanyards and sign up for our raffle prize! We raffled of a $200 Visa gift card. Congratulations to Alexandra from Texas. She was our lucky winner.  Enjoy! Be sure to “like” our Facebook Fan Page to receive exclusive monthly discounts and see photos of all our tradeshow travels.
 
I look forward to attending the Society for Human Resource Management Annual Conference in 2014 in the warm and sunny state of Florida and seeing some familiar faces!
