Benefits of Photo ID Badges

Have you been considering the implementation of an ID badge policy at your organization? Below are several benefits of requiring your team to wear ID badges while at work that might help tip the scales toward ID badge use.

 

 

1. Safety & Security

2. Visitor Management

3. Time & Attendance

4. Improved Team Morale 

5. Customer Service

6. Student Services Combination 

7. Company Branding

Safety & Security-One of the most obvious and most important reasons for team members to wear ID badges is safety of the people and security of the assets in your building. Whether in a business, hospital, school or warehouse, safety should be a huge priority. ID badges are an uncomplicated way of identifying and safeguarding students, staff, visitors or customers. ID badges can also be used for external and internal door access to keep your building, assets and paperwork secure and determine who will have access to which areas of your company. Without policies to show who should be in the building and where they should or shouldn’t be, people will be able to just come and go at will. 

Visitor Management-The use of ID badges in schools or businesses by all staff and/or students allows you to know who’s in your building and what the purpose and duration of the visit is. Requiring your students and staff or employees to display an ID badge will ensure that you can distinguish who should or shouldn’t be on property. For added visitor control, IDville’s Visitor Management solutions will benefit any industry. 

Time & Attendance-ID badges can also be a great tool for time clocks. This allows team members to clock hours efficiently while avoiding the hassle of maintaining a time card. Simply adding a barcode to your ID badge design for your time and attendance system will result in less paperwork and filing due to more efficient and streamlined timekeeping processes.

Team Morale-Having all team members wear an ID badge will improve everyone’s sense of inclusion. It will also allow a great opportunity for employees to recognize each other by name when passing by, even if they don’t work together regularly. Customizable ID badge accessories can also help to create a sense of unity among your team, regardless of position or department. Some companies have even begun setting up programs with local businesses where their employees will receive discounts by showing their ID badge – what a great way for your team to really feel important! 

Customer Service-If you’re in the service industry, requiring the display of ID badges allows customers to easily identify employees and put a face with a name, both building a rapport between the customer and employee and increasing employee accountability. Customers will be more apt to be able to address employees by their first name and because their name is prominently displayed, employees will be more likely to “be on their best behavior” while at work. Also, when customers can easily locate an employee when they need assistance this will improve the customer experience – boosting your company reputation. 

Student Services Combination-There has been an increase in schools using student ID badges for more than just student identification. Several schools have added functionality to ID badges for library check-out, meal credit, access to residence halls, equipment check-out, student sporting events and activity admittance, lab access or even for discounts at local businesses. 

Branding-Having an appealing, memorable ID badge is a great way to promote your company brand to both current and potential customers. By designing attractive, full-color ID badges prominently displaying your company name, logo and brand colors, you’re creating a great branding tool and customers will easily recognize your brand in the future. 

Whether you’re looking for a simple photo ID badge to identify people on property or you want a badge with “the works”, a simple decision to implement an ID badge policy will open numerous doors to future possibilities with those ID badges. Advances in technology create increasing uses for ID badges and the possibilities will continue to grow. With the security, convenience and improvements in customer service and team morale, an ID badge system pays for itself many times over.

Excuse me, I lost my ID card!

If you don’t currently print ID cards onsite at your office, hearing “I’ve lost my ID card” from your employees is probably a nightmare. When employees lose an ID card that means you have to not only wait days or potentially weeks to receive the ID, it also means that you have to reach to your outside vendor and send out information for the new ID. This can be a cumbersome process but can easily be avoided with an onsite ID card system. 
 
The ID Maker suite is an ID card system packaged with all of the components you need to be up and running and printing IDs within 15 minutes.  With new and improved software and capabilities, it’s easier than ever to design professional IDs from your own desktop. You no longer need to wait days or weeks to receive your employee IDs!
