Create and print school ID cards on site for greater flexibility and security
Whether you are a major school, college, high school, middle school or primary and nursery school, using badges and cards in your institution allows you to access many features : identification, secure access control,…
Ensuring people’s security with a school ID card
The growing risks associated with malicious trespassing mean that you want to be well-equipped to optimize the security of the people who enter your institution: students, teachers, employees, visitors, service providers, etc.
Using your school’s badge as identification allows a first level of essential “visual” control. This school ID card can also control access to the entrances to buildings, rooms, etc., limiting the risk of trespass.
All of this directly contributes to the protection of people and, at the same time, your equipment.
Preferring “contactless” solutions, so that using the school badge will be faster and more hygienic
The threats that you face may also be health-related. The flow of people in schools is dense and, as such, it can encourage the spread of viruses. To limit this phenomenon as far as possible, the use of contactless systems is becoming more widespread, particularly through the use of RFID chips.
This technology is particularly suitable for student cards because, in addition to being more hygienic, it gives them a multi-application dimension. The technology is reliable, easy to implement and
it saves time when dealing with significant flows of people.
Making digital data management more secure by printing your own school ID card
Security also has to do with data security. You are required to process a lot of personal data, and it is your responsibility to keep this data confidential.
One of the main best practices in this regard is to keep this information internal: if you share it externally, you run the risk of this data being hacked or copied. This is why it is beneficial to choose solutions that are internal to your organization, including school badges.
Optimizing your internal organization and your investments
New technologies, changes in regulations, changing contexts, etc. require you to adapt on an ongoing basis. It is therefore important that you have access to internal tools that are easy to use on a daily basis, allowing you to remain flexible.
This also means choosing software that is intuitive and hardware that is ergonomic. It must last over time, and it must be possible to upgrade it, in order to also be able to meet your future needs, which you may not have yet identified.
Investing in equipment over the long term also allows you to deal with the budgetary constraints you often face. You can limit costs, specifically as follows:
- Using a card printer internally avoids the use of an external service provider and allows you to better control printing time frames,
- Instant, on-demand printing means that you don’t need to consider minimum orders, and it allows you to have a fixed card cost,
- The options for upgrading your card printer allow you to adapt it to your changing needs, without having to purchase something new.
There are so many elements to take into account when choosing equipment.
Promoting equity between all students with multi-service school badges
All students must be able to access the services that you offer with the same level of ease. Using a medium that can operate independently allows you to provide each student with the same access conditions.
This is the advantage of having a student or school card in credit card format: once it is given to each student, it is self-sufficient and can be used by everyone.
Dematerializing actions that can be dematerialized
The dematerialization of certain processes in schools can save significant amounts of time and money. Various actions can be dematerialized, such as the signing of documents. A touch signature tablet will allow you to limit the use of paper (printing, scanning), while also facilitating the internal processing of these documents and making the signature step secure.
You can therefore use the electronic signature for school reports, signing attendance sheets, internal regulations and even for your attendance register, in order to control access to your buildings.
School badge: lots of possibilities
Your card printer allows you to print all types of cards and badges:
- Student card, school ID card,
- Teacher, employee or visitor badge.
- Cafeteria cards
- School trip badge
- School transport badge
Depending on your needs, you can choose all the elements of their customization: graphical elements, security, encoding , etc. This makes each card the ideal tool.
