Today’s ID card technology offers more options than ever before when setting up an employee ID program. Depending on your company’s needs, you can produce cards ranging from basic photo IDs for worker identification, to multifunctional badges that track time and attendance and control access to company buildings and computer networks.

How do Companies use Employee ID Card Systems?

Staff IDProper identification in a company setting is a key component of maintaining secure operations, particularly visual identification. ID cards can be worn by employees at all times as well as by temp workers. Typically, ID cards are worn on badge reels or lanyards by the employee and should be highly visible to managers and building security personnel.

Time and AttendanceFor time management of hourly employees, we recommend time and attendance ID cards. These kinds of cards keep track of when the person clocks in and clocks out for accurate weekly hour reports. Time and attendance often use magnetic stripes or barcodes that are scanned by a reader and integrated with tracking software.

Access ControlMany small businesses, large corporations, and companies use access control cards to limit entry to certain areas of the building. This extra layer of security helps deter unauthorized individuals from attempting to gain access to these sensitive areas. An access control card is a sure-fire way to prevent unauthorized persons such as intruders from gaining entry to restricted areas and compromising security.

Multifunctional & Smart CardsEmployee ID cards serve a much greater purpose than simple photo identification. Many companies are utilizing data storage technologies (e.g. barcodes & magnetic stripe cards) to monitor important data of their employees such as their status, position, and the date they started working. Additionally, Smart cards have become a common type of technology employed by companies and can be used as access control cards.

Visitor BadgesIt’s quite common for companies and organizations to issue visitor ID badges as a way to ensure everyone entering the building is properly identified. Typically, visitors will first register at the reception area and obtain a visitor badge before gaining access to certain areas of a facility. This prevents potentially dangerous intruders from freely roaming company buildings. One of the best ways to increase the level of security in an office building is to establish an effective visitor management system, and ID cards are a vital part of this process.

Cashless PaymentCafeterias tend to be the norm at medium- to large-sized companies where hundreds of employees work. Employees will often purchase lunch and dinner to get through their shifts, whether it’s at a restaurant or at the company in a cafeteria, snack shop, or at a vending machine if available. ID cards can be used as payment cards for staff, making payment a consolidated process that is managed much more effectively.

Business CardsLet’s face it — many of today’s business cards are flimsy and easily tear, especially when crammed inside a wallet. For almost all workers and employees, it’s necessary to have a high-quality business card to hand out at networking events, to friends & family members, and to acquaintances. PVC business cards are sturdy, meant to last, and are the perfect solution for a long-lasting business card.
