It is hard to walk into any office today and find employees who don’t wear employee IDs. one of the ways to effectively enhance a company’s security level is to have everyone working for them identified in some way which makes the issue of creating suitable employee IDs really important.
Is there a way to make IDs that help a company effectively execute their security plans?
A perfect ID should always bear a company’s logo on it as this increases the chance that people will immediately recognize the organization the person works for. Ensure that the logo is done in a way that brings out a company’s brand message. Realize that forged cards can be used by bad people to do bad stuff out there that ends up ruining your reputation.
Find a way to make cards that look good while at the same time retaining their functionality. Design the card in such a way that it satisfies your security and branding requirements. You can come out with a color system that helps to identify specifics such as departments and floors.
The amount of security details and other functionalities determine how large or small the card will be. A dual-sided card allows you to add important information at its back such as the purpose of the business and emergency numbers.
Since one of the purposes of a card is employee identification,it goes without saying that an ID card should have a clear photo of the specific person who bears it. The security people should always verify whether the picture on the ID card clearly resembles the person who presents the card at the entry point.
For more detailed security capabilities,the details of an employee could be encoded using barcodes,smart chips,magnetic stripes,and RFID tags. A card reader may then be used to read the details on an ID card and either give access or deny it into the building. This can save money for the company as fewer security personnel will be needed.
Printing costs money and since you don’t want to keep spending money printing the card all the time,consider using long lasting materials such as PVC or simply have plastic HID cards processed for your employees.
These are not the only components of a perfect worker identification card but they are some of the most important.
