Best Practices for ID Card Issuance

07/01/21

K–12 schools and colleges both issue ID cards to students, faculty, staff, and visitors to campus. The logistics of creating and printing smart ID cards with technical capabilities are more complicated than you might think.

From processing times to personalization, and from software streamlining to printer hardware selection, educational institutions have a lot of factors to be mindful of before committing to a solution.

Here to break down the process are Senior Product Marketing Manager Mike Mans and Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives David O’Driscoll, both with HID Global. Mike’s experience is in mechanical development, digital measurement systems and advancing technology. David, meanwhile, leads global initiatives in expanding the secure issuance business at HID into new markets and with existing customers.
