Another Successful SHRM Conference!

The dust has settled on another great year at the SHRM 2014 Annual Conference and Exposition and we can honestly say it was another great show! What an amazing event to be a part of and what an honor to be able to network with so many great professionals in the world of human resources! 

IDville participated as an exhibit sponsor for the fourth year in a row June 22 – 24 in Orlando, FL. We were able to talk with over 1,600 Human Resources professionals to see how identification is handled in their workplaces. 

SHRM was such a great opportunity to see current customers’ excitement about the success of their ID Maker® systems and to chat with others whose buildings are looking for a security upgrade through the use of ID badges. 

Some of the excitement of SHRM was, of course, watching people’s excitement to receive one of our badge accessory favorites – “bling” lanyards. Booth visitors also took part in games and raffles to win other great prizes, including a FREE ID Maker Value System

All-in-all SHRM 2014 was a great success. We’re so thankful to be able to get out of the office and meet some of our loyal customers and help others to create a secure environment for their team members. And of course, we’re already looking forward to SHRM 2015 in the sparkling city of Las Vegas!

Is Your Building Safe?

by david 12. May 2014 10:33

It’s Building Safety Month! There’s no better time to focus on the safety of your school, office building, warehouse or any other building you’re responsible for. When people think of building or workplace safety they typically think about preventing workplace injury on the job. But what about workplace violence committed by unwelcome guests gaining access to your building? There are 7 easy steps your company can take to keep your employees safe in the workplace and below are a few policy tips to keep your employees or students feeling secure. 

Restricting door access at your facility is one of the key ways to ensure your employees or students are safe. Issuing photo ID badges that double as access cards is a great solution. With photo ID badges you can make sure each person in the building has access to the appropriate areas and anyone without a company or school ID should be questioned.  

Enacting a policy for visitor management is another great way to keep your employees or students secure. All visitors who enter the building can be required to sign in and possibly even receive a visitor ID badge . This will show team members that not just anyone can come into the building whenever they want. Having guests sign in is also a great way for administration and/or management to remain cognizant of who’s in the building at all times.

What better time to really take stock of your building’s safety than during Building Safety Month? The identification experts at IDville will be more than happy to give you more information about the importance of identifying students, employees and visitors.

Minimize ID Badge Reprints!

by david 8. April 2014 11:00

Are you constantly replacing lost or damaged ID badges for your employees or students and staff? Not only will protective ID badge holders save you time, they’ll also save money spent on frequent ID badge reprints. 

From healthcare to manufacturing to education, ID badge holders are a great way to extend the life of your ID badge and protect the data on your badge. Wearing your ID badge inside a badge holder will protect that badge from spills and cracking or peeling. Choosing the right holder and attachment style for your employees or students and staff will also minimize the chance that they’ll lose their ID badge.   

Badge holders are a useful way for your team to display their ID without having to punch a hole in their ID badge. Giving your employees or students and staff a convenient and valuable way to wear their ID badges will increase the likelihood that they will keep their ID badge accessible – which is always a bonus! ID badge holders will also help to easily differentiate between departments or grade levels by using different badge holder colors or styles.  

Badge holders can be found in vinyl, silicone, plastic and many other durable materials. From holders that strap around your arm to those that zip shut for added security, there’s sure to be something for your ID badge needs, no matter what industry you’re in! Even if your company policies require that an ID badge is swiped for door access or to log on to a computer, we have badge holders that accommodate that need as well. 

IDville features several different ID badge holder options with several colors, styles, attachments and for both vertical and horizontal badges. No matter what your badge holder needs are, you’ll find what you need at IDville!

Keep It Clean...

If you own an ID card printer, regardless of what brand or manufacturer, it’s important to make sure your printer is being cleaned on a consistent basis. Most ID card printer manufacturers suggest a cleaning every 700-1,000 prints to keep your printer running smoothly. 

Much like getting the oil changed in your car, this routine maintenance on your ID card printer will help keep it running efficiently and will ultimately extend the life of your printer. Using a printer cleaning kit will remove the dust, dirt and lint from the inside of the printer. 

Not cleaning an ID card printer regularly can lead to a buildup of debris on the print head, which may damage it and leave white streaks across your ID cards. The typical cost to replace that print head is around $500. On the other hand, a printer cleaning kit will likely cost less than $50 and it will only take a few minutes of your time to get your printer cleaned, protecting the valuable investment you made in your ID card system

IDville has printer cleaning kits for every major ID card printer manufacturer. In comparing the cost of maintaining your printer through using our printer cleaning kits to the cost of buying an entirely new ID card printer, the solution is obvious. We also feature quantity discounts on our cleaning kits so you can stock up and save. 

If you’ve never cleaned your printer and need some assistance, you can contact our system specialists at 866.438.4553 and they’ll help you protect your investment by walking you through the cleaning process.
