Staff ID Cards
Canny employers are cottoning on the fact that a staff ID card can do so much more than just identify an employee. By printing on a technology card it can by synced with your building’s access control system, to your printer/copier for print and copy release and it can even be used for paying for lunch in the staff canteen with cashless catering.
Top Tip: ..
Efficiency and security are bywords within all spheres of employment. Gone are the days when every face in the workplace was known, and supervision was conducted from a glass-sided stronghold perched above the factory floor, or from a desk at the far end of the office occupied by an eagle-eyed manager. Practices that involved untold hours spent queuing to clock on at work, painstaking form-filling and ledger-filling and the centralised location of keys to permit access around the building have long gone. With them has also gone the atmosphere of mistrust that prevailed in many workplaces.
Programming the Inepro SCR708
How to program your Inepro reader to specific outputs or restrict to specific technologies
The Inepro SCR708 offers a huge amount of features and flexibility not seen in any other reader on the market. Using the Analyser and the Programmer tools you can, within minutes create a custom firmware which suits your exact needs and then quickly roll this out to multiple units.

You’ve probably put a lot of thought into the design of your name badges and ID cards. You’ve made sure they’re branded with your logo. They have the right personal information. And the quality of print represents the quality of your company. They look great and you feel proud.
But whether you’re simply printing your own name badges on paper, or operating a full plastic ID card system, there is one final aspect to your identification process that you may have overlooked. And it’s one that will still have impact – the badge/ID card holders you use.
Do you have employees who regularly fly or stay in hotels?
Are you fed up with staff and/or customers losing their keys?
Do you manage children’s clubs or school trips?
Or perhaps you’re looking for a simple way to keep your brand in front of your customer on a day-to-day basis.
If you’re answering ‘yes’ in any way to the questions above, then it’s worth considering how mini cards could help you run things more smoothly.

The Brief for a New Staff and Visitor Management System
For over five years we have been supplying our client with staff ID cards and personalised lanyards so when they needed to impl..
Both event organisers and event attendees appreciate a well-organised name badge system.
The pocket-sized ID cards we’re all used to seeing are familiar and reassuring. They help to keep things running smoothly, look professional, and are very easy to use.
However, there are events and occasions when that convenient credit card sized version just doesn’t quite do the job.
So what’s the solution?
Oversized Name Badges
At big events such as sports fixtures, concerts, conventions and exhibitions etc., security is undoubtedly a challenge. The crowds are lar..
Innovative, diverse and in a constant state of change; for the many businesses offering their creative services, the events industry is an exciting and competitive environment.At ID Card Centre we understand that one of the key ingredients to a successful event is paying close attention to the little details, as this is what can set you apart from the competition.We also appreciate the stresses that event organisers are under (I used to be one for over 15 years!) such as tight client budgets, last minute changes to delegate lists and needing to print badges at the very last minute but still ge..
Answer: The need for secrecy and privacy.
The A list wedding had an exclusive magazine deal and couldn’t risk photos being leaked before going to press.
The new Formula One car’s closely guarded new design could not be seen by competitors.
And well, the government work is so closely guarded we can’t mention anything other than it involves the MoD.
So how do you overcome the need for secrecy and privacy in all these stations? Especially in a time where 71% of the UK population own a smart phone (and 93% own a mobi..
