Updating Your Campus ID Card Issuance Process

There have been a lot of advances recently in ID card printing technology that are making the issuance process much easier.

The efficient and secure printing and issuance of identification cards has historically been a challenge for colleges, healthcare facilities and K-12 campuses.

According to the 2021 Campus Safety Access Control and Lockdown Survey, a significant portion of colleges and healthcare facilities have a slow ID card issuance process (40% and 34% respectively); printer reliability/maintenance challenges (36% and 46%); smart card management problems (46% and 42%); and the inability to issue cards outside of the card office (38%).

Fortunately, there have been a lot of advances recently in ID card printing technology that are making the issuance process much easier.

To learn more about these advances, Campus Safety interviewed HID Global Product Manager Nils Wahlandar. In this interview with Nils, he talks about the difference between on-premises and cloud-based systems, the benefits of moving to the cloud, the hardware that’s needed to issue cards to remote locations and more.
