Photo ID System Creates Secure ID Badges for Quiksilver Employees

by david 3. August 2011 09:00

Quiksilver, Inc. is a sportswear apparel company that designs, produces and distributes clothing, surf, skate and snow equipment for young-minded people. Started by Alan Green and John Law in 1970, Quiksilver quickly became a phenomenon and is now sold all over the world. Currently employing approximately 3,500 people, the business continues to be run on its original principals of word-of-mouth, quality and unbelievable service.

Todd Dickson, Quiksilver's director of building security, came to IDville in search of an up-to-date photo ID system that was "user-friendly and that did not break down every other day!!" (We could guarantee that!) He needed a photo ID system that would allow him to create different types of badges on one system.

With thousands of employees at different levels within the company, I knew Dickson needed an affordable way to create unique IDs. He was going to be printing a lot of photo ID cards with Quiksilver being such a large company.

When Dickson contacted IDville he had some questions regarding the photo ID system choices. "The IDville representatives were very well-versed with the product which showed me a lot. Although cost was a big factor in our decision, as the prices are very reasonable, the professionalism was leaps and bounds ahead of the other companies we'd contacted."

I ultimately helped Dickson decide on the Single-Sided ID Maker Advantage because he was planning to print a large number of cards, on one side only and security-enhancing overlays were not important. Dickson purchased two of these photo ID systems to be used at two different locations.

Quiksilver’s photo ID badges are tamper-resistant. Their card design includes the employee photo along with the company logo; for added security a watermark of the employee's photo is also in the corner. "IDville continues to meet and exceed my expectations! It has become a great resource for my photo ID badging process."

National Safety Month is a Great Opportunity to Refresh ID Cards

by david 7. June 2011 09:45

If you read last week’s post, you know that June is National Safety Month. All this month, we’ll be sharing tips and ideas that can make your organization a safer place.

National Safety Month was established in 1996 by the National Safety Council to increase public awareness of safety and health risks in workplaces, homes, and communities. This month is a prime opportunity to bring safety to the forefront of your organization and establish its value as a great workplace.

Create your own Employee ID CardsJune is an excellent time to refresh your workforce on company safety procedures. Begin Safety Month with a reminder of your identification policy. Going over the policy is certain to get everyone on the same page when it comes to proper use and display of their ID cards.

Don’t have an identification policy? Make a resolution to create one. Identification in the workplace improves safety by providing a visual identifier of individuals in the building. This makes it easier to identify who do and does not belong in the building. Thanks to identification software and easy-to-use photo ID card systems, you can create the identification policy that will have the greatest impact on safety for your organization. 

Safety Month is a great opportunity to update staff ID card pictures, too. At staff meetings, have your digital camera ready and offer “picture-retakes” for anyone interested. Employees will be more likely to wear their ID when they are happy with their picture. Hand out new lanyards or badge reels to everyone to encourage them to regularly sport their new ID cards.

Safety is an essential piece to creating a work environment where employees look forward to coming to work. When you create a safety-conscious culture at your organization, employees will thank you with increased productivity and engagement.

Workplace Safety

ID Cards Make Work a Safer Place

by todd 1. June 2011 08:56

Get More Safety Tips for National Safety MonthEach June, the National Safety Council (NSC) encourages businesses to promote and improve safety during National Safety Month. You can use the NSC's timely reminder to review your organization's safety policies and practices. Safety policies and procedures prevent accidents, injuries and death in the workplace. Implementing employee ID badges is an important part of a safety policy and can make your organization a safer place for employees.

Visual Recognition
ID cards provide visual recognition of every person in your building, making it easy for security personnel or employees to identify persons who don't belong.

Building Access – Coordinate employee ID cards with access control through HID proximity cards. An access control system allows all employees to enter the building at will while requiring visitors to enter through a monitored entrance. You also have the ability to disable an employee's card if he is no longer allowed in the building.

Picture Directory – Using ID Maker software, you can easily create an employee photo directory for your employee handbook or intranet. The picture directory allows employees to become familiar with new faces around the building.

Visitor Management – Utilize your photo ID card printer to create visitor ID badges. Visitor ID badges signal to employees that the visitor is permitted to be in the building. Create badges for contractors or consultants who visit regularly to encourage an atmosphere of teamwork.

National Safety Month is the ideal time to implement an ID card safety policy or upgrade your current policy. When employees feel safe at work, they are more productive, engaged and less likely to use disability benefits. To conduct a thorough review of your organization's safety policies, reference our Workplace Security Audit available in our Knowledge Center.

Increase Security in the New Year with Photo ID Cards

by david 4. January 2011 09:59

Welcome to 2011! Do you have any New Years resolutions? This year, IDville made a resolution to help more companies create safe and secure work environments where learning, productivity, and innovation thrive.

Photo identification is a critical component of a safe work environment. In fact, it’s very common for schools, hospitals and businesses to have a photo identification card policy. If you already use photo ID cards at your organization, do you have a policy in place?

A photo ID card policy clarifies for employees, students and staff what the expectations are regarding an ID card. For instance, are ID cards used for buying lunches or checking out materials? Are individuals required to display their ID card with them at all times?

Start the New Year off right by putting a formal photo ID card policy into place. It doesn’t have to be long or elaborate. Follow our guidelines to craft your own policy for your organization.

An ID card policy should:

 Provide guidelines for information and design elements that must be included on ID cards.

 Outline the expectations for wearing and displaying the ID card.

 Describe how replacements can be obtained and the cost, if any.

 Explain all the ways ID cards are used. For instance, access control, time and attendance, making purchases or checking out materials, etc.

For more ID card policy ideas, look at similarly sized organizations in your industry. Their policies will provide a good benchmark for your own.

Something new is coming to IDville!
