Signs it’s time to upgrade your outdated ID system!

by david 10. July 2012 09:15
Are you constantly struggling to create photo IDs quickly? Do you find that it’s taking you more time than it’s worth to print cards? Or are you currently using an outside source and it's taking weeks just to get your IDs mailed to you? If so, then it’s time you update your photo identification system or look into implementing one in your organization!  
I recently did some traveling for a couple of IDville tradeshows, and I was astonished at the amount of professionals I talked with that commented, “We currently do print our own ID cards, but our system is so outdated that they look cheap and generic.” The purpose of your ID card is for security and identification. It’s critical that each ID is professional looking and customizable to suit all your needs. Not every company needs access control or added security features such as bar code scanning, but your ID system should have all those capabilities.

IDville, photo identification and security experts, make designing and printing photo ID cards easy. 
Set up is simple: Getting your ID Maker system set up is as simple as installing the software and plugging in the equipment. That’s it! We even have brief videos to show you how simple it really is.  
Invest less time and money: Unlike most technology these days, an ID card system does save you time and hassle. There are still a lot of companies that print paper badges, cut each one out and laminate them separately. That takes a lot of time compared to the ID Maker System that prints 1 card in less than 30 seconds! 
Lifetime support: Have a question during set up? IDville includes lifetime technical support in the purchase of your ID system. If you ever need assistance, we are only a phone call away!
Implementing or updating your current photo identification system can be overwhelming. So don’t hesitate to call one of our Identification Specialists at 866.438.4553 with any questions you may encounter through the implementation process. Happy ID printing!

2012 Society for Human Resource Management Annual Conference a success for IDville!

by Kayla 29. June 2012 15:15
I just returned from the 2012 Society for Human Resources Management Annual Conference and it was a huge success! It was a packed show with over 14,000 attendees and 650 exhibitors. "The exhibit hall was like the size of a small city with vendors from around the country giving away awesome gifts while pitching their products and services. It was impressive!” commented David, Identification Expert. This is the second year that IDville has particiapted in this conference and it's been a wonderful experience.
IDville participated as an exhibit sponsor June 24-26 in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center. We were able to speak with over 1,100 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.  To view sample ID cards, check out our ID card library. 
Part of the fun was seeing the eagerness of the attendees to sign up for our raffle prizes! We raffled of 2 sets of 2 tickets to the world famous Georgia Aquarium and a $200 Visa gift card. Congratulations to Sandy from Georgia and Laura from Michigan. They were our 2 lucky winners for the aquarium tickets. Also congratulations to Rod from Nebraska who won our $200 Visa gift card. Enjoy! Be sure to “like” our Facebook Fan Page and check out photos from the conference. 
I look forward to attending the Society for Human Resource Management Annual Conference in 2013 in the wonderful city of Chicago and seeing some familiar faces!

June is National Safety Month: Promote Safety with ID Maker & Quantix!

by Kayla 7. June 2012 09:35

It’s National Safety Month! Every year during the month of June, the National Safety Council encourages organizations to get involved and participate in National Safety Month. How do you plan to participate in promoting safety this year?

Here's a little background information: National Safety Month is an annual observance to educate and influence behaviors around the leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths. At  IDville  we’re excited to participate in National Safety Month by promoting visitor management tools and ID Maker™ Systems to ensure the safety of all staff and visitors.
Learn more about National Safety Month
Tracking visitors is an important part of ensuring safety, but it can easily get overlooked if a visitor management system hasn’t been implemented. Not only does it keep buildings safe from theft and violence, it promotes a feeling of security and well-being throughout organizations.  If your organization doesn’t encounter a high volume of visitors on a daily basis, our temporary ID systems and visitor bundles include everything you need to start your visitor program.

Photo identification systems go hand-in-hand with safety when it comes to the staff that makes up your organization. The ID Maker System is a quick and simple solution to identify who has authorization to be on the premises, who is a visitor, and who is a staff member. Utilizing HID Prox cards for ID badges permits access control to each person who enters the building and promotes a higher level of security.

During National Safety Month each week is centered on a critical safety issue. This year’s issues include Employee Wellness, Ergonomics, Fall Prevention, and Driving Safety. Workplace safety is one of the most critical functions of any organization. Whether it’s ensuring the physical safety of your employees or providing a sense of security, it’s vital to ensure each and every staff member knows what is expected of them when it comes to safety.

There are various fun ways to engage your employees in National Safety Month. I suggest committing to having one meeting a week centered on the weekly topic and have a trivia game at the end. You can reward employees for participating with an extended lunch break, gift cards, coupons, etc. Or why not round up some teams to help perform A Million Acts of Safety. It’s a great way to get your employees involved and help promote workplace safety in your organization and in the community. Happy National Safety Month!
