ID Badge  /  Campus ID

The ID Badge, Campus ID, or User ID Badge are the holy grail of campus security. Created innocently enough with a name and picture, the user ID Badge has evolved. The first evolution added a bar code, today it is a QR code, but the code is often times used for library, cafeteria and some access/check-in functions. Those bar/qr codes evolved as well into magnetic strips for door access and then smart cards.

ID Badge, Smart Cards & Campus IDs

Smart cards (with the user ID Badge) and Campus  ID’s allow Bluetooth and NFC readers to identify the user. Once identified campus premise access controllers can open doors. Payment systems can allow purchases at POS/registers, laundry machines and vending machines. College book stores and associated vendors can lever them for payment as well. With all of its campus applications,  IDs are important in the campus life.

The Evolved Campus Security User ID Badge Apps

IDentifyed has created the next evolution of Campus user ID badges, the Campus ID becomes an APP that provides many additional functions on campus. IDentifyED provides all the traditional functionality of a plastic ID; User Name, Picture, QR or Bar code, and the option to add an integrated software based HID SEOS Smart credential.

ID Badge App

What’s the big deal about a Campus Security ID Badge APP? Well, as important as the user ID badges are, today’s ID is still a piece of plastic or in many cases 2 pieces of plastic (ID and Smart Card). User’s pictures need to be placed uploaded into a user printing application. Plastic has to be printed. Plastic has to be deployed. Plastic can get lost or stolen. If lost or stolen plastic has to be replaced.

User self-registration and photo uploads.

Users can upload a favorite picture of themselves (not more waiting in lines), no more photo equipment, no more dedicated staff who spends their days taking pictures of users.  Users can simply enter their campus login and password—without requiring help from campus security or IT. Fill out a simple app form and whammo, user ID badge.

No plastic ID badges are required.

Requires no plastic, no printing, no printers, no printer supplies and no distribution. If you want to have both plastic and app-based, go for it! Thousands of IDs can be created in minutes with little to no administration or cost.

The ID Badge App is Never lost and never stolen.

IDentifyed data is housed in the hyper-secured cloud, so the user ID badge is never lost, never stolen, and can be revoked (if ever needed) with an administrator’s click of the mouse.  User loses their phone? No problem. Download IDentifyed to the new phone and login. That’s it. No waiting in line at security, no lost card fees, no printing, no pain and no dedicated resource to issue IDs.
