Boost Security with Plastic ID Cards

Apr 5th 2014 at 12:23 AM

Have you been looking for ways to boost security, but still keep it convenient enough for your employees at the same time? You don't want to force everyone to stand in long lines before they enter the building, simply because someone has to look them over, pat them down and go through all of their belongings. While highly secure facilities might require this sort of safety precaution, most businesses do not. That is why you should go with a slightly different form of security. An online based plastic ID card might be exactly what is going to work best for you and your employees. The plastic ID cards are easy to use, can be updated in a matter of moments, and there is no limit to the number of employees you are able to support at once. Best of all, should you ever fire someone, have to let someone go or they leave on their own terms, you can remove them from your online database just as quickly as you added them.

A security checkpoint is meant to be secure. While picture IDs are nice, just having a picture on a card and that is it really isn't going to do much in terms of improving this. Sure, the card has an image of the person that is holding the card, but these cards are so easy to replicate, that anyone who has see the card can probably duplicate it, if they really wanted to enter your place of business. Instead, you need to look at a different form of security. With the online-based plastic ID cards, you take your security in a completely different level, all without making it difficult for your employees to deal with.

With the plastic ID cards, there is a barcode printed on it. This is similar to any other barcode you might find on a store-bought product. This barcode, when scanned at a gate checkpoint, is going to directly connect to your company's online network. With the network, the security checkpoint is going to scan to make sure the barcode matches information you have listed on the network itself.  Once the information checks out, the gate opens and the person can move on through. All of this happens in a matter of a second, and your employee can move on through the checkpoint. This barcode is specific to the person, which is important because you can add even more security clearance to their barcode later on, should you desire. With these plastic ID cards, you can have different levels of security clearance, and it all is upgraded through the online network.

Because the barcode scanners that operate the door checkpoints are connected to the Internet, you can have someone removed with just a few clicks of a mouse. This way, if someone is fired, they can be instantly cleared from the database, preventing them from getting back into the building. This helps keep everyone safe inside your building while you protect all your employees.
