FREE, on-demand whitepaper reveals how to achieve increased productivity, reliability and security
Every campus card issuance operation wants flexibility in its system structure and a custom solution that meets its needs. Achieving that, however, can be less than straightforward without the proper background and expertise. In HID Global’s free “Key Elements to Successful High Volume Distributed Card Issuance” whitepaper, see how an issuance operation can achieve this flexible, tailored process through distributed card issuance.
Distributed issuance system options differ from another, perhaps more familiar formula — centralized issuance. Centralized issuance is dependent on a lone, large-volume printer, and card production can often be suspended for extended periods of time for maintenance, hampering productivity. Moreover, for institutions with multiple sites or campuses, centralized distribution can add time and expense to the credential issuance and distribution process.
For multi-campus institutions, central issuance forces the card office to either package and send finished credentials directly to individual cardholders, or alternatively, require cardholders to report to a centralized location to obtain their new ID.
Enter distributed card issuance.
In the whitepaper, read about the most vital system criteria that should be considered when networking printers into a high-duty cycle distributed card issuance system. Also hear about the advantages of High-Definition Printing (HDP), how it differs from direct-to-card printing, and which method is best suited to the type of credential your operation is issuing.
Also hear how high-duty cycle distributed card issuance can be scaled to lower operational and service costs, as well as optimize credential output – regardless of whether the finished credential requires physical, electronic or visual personalization.
Scalability, cost savings and optimized output make distributed card issuance a viable, effective alternative to centralized issuance for higher education institutions large and small. For campuses looking for a viable alternative to a centralized issuance model, HID’s free “Key Elements to Successful High Volume Distributed Card Issuance” whitepaper is a good place to start, as it highlights all the key elements of a productive, secure and reliable distributed credential issuance system.
