Do You Have an ID Card?
We notice electronic ID badges everywhere now. They have become quite a common tool used for identification purposes in both everyday settings such as at retailers or in health centers, as well as in steeper professional setting such as with hospital personnel and executives at top corporations. Since ID cards have now grown to being such common security feature, the software behind them has expanded as well.
There are many different types of electronic ID badge software, from basic to full-featured software. And there is great importance in choosing the appropriate ID card and system. But which ID card and associated software is best for you? Consider the following software options to find out.
Basic electronic ID card software is just that—basic. This level of software will suffice if you need to print only a few hundred basic cards per year, which are not going to often be re-used. Basic electronic ID card software usually only has a limited internal database function, using up to about eight data fields. With this software, only one 1D barcode or magnetic strip encoding Sis included, with only one non-network workstation. If you are a small organization or business, a basic ID card software option should work just fine.
If you are a medium-sized organization or company and are seeking a few more advanced features and functions with your ID badges, a medium-featured software choice may be best for you. Although it does not include every possible feature, a medium-featured software ID card system includes more than the basic software system. This level of software includes 2D barcodes, unlimited data fields, printing and reprinting of cards, internal/external database connectivity, import/export capability and more.
If your ID card needs are for a larger organization or corporation, a full-featured software ID card system would be more for you. This level of ID badge software includes extensive database connectivity and capability, versatile database functions, barcode and magnetic strip coding as well as smart card coding. Full-featured software even offers full network capabilities as well as single workstations.
