New White Paper Shares the Importance of ID Card Systems and ID Badges

by dan 27. March 2012 07:00
dan

We are excited to announce the release of our white paper “ID Card Systems – Why Identify?“ This white paper is perfect if you’re researching the benefits an ID card system can bring to your workplace.

ID card systems outfit students, staff, and visitors with a photo ID badge that can be worn on the premises each day. It also helps to identify visitors who may not have a legitimate reason to be on the premises. You can use your ID card system to restrict access to the building by using proximity cards, also known as contactless cards, and this has been established as a workplace prevention strategy.

Download Now

The primary benefits of an ID card system are increased security and efficiency, and an ID card system can offer these benefits with at a lower cost than other forms of security. When you download the white paper, you’ll get clear examples of the benefits in both education and healthcare environments.

For example, schools that require students and staff to display an ID badge create a safe atmosphere. You’ll also find that ID badges are more cost effective and inviting in a school than other forms of security, such as cameras, guards, and metal detectors.  Plus, you can increase efficiency with ID badges by integrating library and lunch systems through a barcode on the badge. All this can be done by designing your own ID badges!

Healthcare organizations can also prevent both physical and intellectual security breaches by implementing an ID card system. With more medical records being stored electronically, it is crucial that you protect patient information by restricting facility access. ID badges can communicate authorization levels and help staff members clearly identify who does and does not belong.

Over time, an ID card system pays for itself, and you’ll quickly see financial, security, and morale returns on the investment. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of an ID card system can get detailed information and data in our “ID Card Systems – Why Identify?” white paper in the Knowledge Center.

Green ID Badge Accessories are for March Madness and St. Patrick’s Day

by dan 13. March 2012 08:00

We’ve been seeing a lot of green in Michigan lately. The snow has melted and the weather has warmed up, so grass is starting to turn green. We’re excited for the upcoming NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament starting this week. I’ll be cheering on the Michigan State University team, so you know I’ll be wearing green! Plus, St. Patrick’s Day is Saturday. With so much green going on, we had to talk about green ID badge accessories.

If you want to put on a green lanyard or badge holder to prevent yourself from getting pinched this St. Patrick’s Day, we have you covered. You have lots of green lanyard options to choose from, and you can even design your own with our full color custom lanyard options.

Shop ID Badge Accessories 
Our translucent badge reel comes in a bright green color. When you pair it with a green colored frame badge holder, you have a great St. Patrick’s Day accessory!

If you’re not as excited about the color green as I am, you can also find ID badge accessories are green and good for the environment. When you design custom lanyards, choose the recycled vivid color lanyard  option. All the lanyards are made from recycled pop bottles!

You can select a “green” badge holder, too. Our biodegradable badge holders  are made from a corn-based biodegradable film and will easily attach to your recycled lanyard. Complete your ID badge with the 100% recycled badge stock.

This spring, go green with your ID badge accessories to support the environment or your favorite team!

In today’s business environment, your organization is probably looking for ways to do more with less. We’re excited to announce that we have launched a new time and attendance solution that can help you do exactly that.

The QuantixTM time and attendance system is the latest addition to the IDville offering that helps companies reduce clerical work, save money, recover lost time, and reduce human error. A Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) option, Quantix requires no servers or software to be installed on the user’s network and can be rapidly implemented. With the intuitive Quantix system, you will be able to have the new system up and running in a few weeks as opposed to the months some systems can require.

The Quantix system offers several cost savings opportunities to customers and streamlines attendance and payroll for companies with as few as 10 employees. Customers can see how much Quantix will save their organization with IDville’s online Return on Investment Calculator.

The new time and attendance system has several features that makes reviewing employee timecards and payroll much easier:

Using Quantix, supervisors can:
 View and edit employee timecards
 View in/out board with last punch
 View infractions, hours, and overtime
 View and edit employee schedules
 View personnel data
 Run PDF or excel attendance reports

Using Quantix, employees can:
 View timecards and either clock in/out, transfer departments, or fill out their timesheets
 View schedules

The new QuantixTM time and attendance system gives small businesses the tools to manage employee time cards and payroll without breaking the bank. This system makes process efficiencies and cost savings accessible to organizations of all sizes.

New IDville Products Available

by dan 8. September 2010 10:43
dan

New this week, we’ve added 10 new products to the IDville offering. As part of our mission to stay current with emerging identification and workplace security trends, we’re introducing several innovative products. Here are a few of our personal favorites you should check out:

 USB Lanyard. Professionals in all industries rely on USBs to keep their data portable and protected. The new USB Lanyard makes it convenient to carry your data with you wherever your work takes you. The lanyard detaches to reveal a 1GB USB drive. This item can be valuable to teachers who can always carry class records with them.

 RFID Secure Badge Holders. With many organizations relying on smart cards to contain employee information and access control, it’s important to protect personal information from being stolen. As part of our new product offering, we now offer RFID Secure Badge Holders. The badge holder prevents identity theft by blocking RFID signals that can access the personal information stored on the card. ID cards easily slide out of the holder for scanning.

 Badge Reels. Fun and functional badge reels encourage employees to wear their ID cards at all times. For night shift employees, consider the Carabiner LED Badge Reel that shines a bright LED light at a push of a button. For a more light-hearted crowd, our Flashing Badge Reels are sure to be a hit!

Click through our online catalog or browse the website to view all our new products that will keep your people safe and secure.
