LHC turned to InstantCard to create a streamlined, centrally-managed system for issuing employee ID badges. With InstantCard, all employees are entered into a single employee database that manages the ID badge process.
InstantCard created customized templates for each location, based on a single master template that ensured uniformity across the organization. The master template ensures that templates can be easily copied among locations, so a new site can be added with the same set of templates already in use.
Templates can be set up to allow for unique elements (text, image, logo, etc.) at each location. The templates are associated with specific divisions, so only specified locations have access to a given template.
As new employees join, franchisees merely enter employee data, attach the digital photo, and the cards are printed and mailed out automatically to them. This requires no involvement of the franchise operator, other than to initially set up the program and designate the approved card layouts. Each franchisee gets the benefits of a group-wide service, at no additional cost to the franchisor.
“Franchises present a unique challenge for producing photo ID cards, since the typical franchise has many small, geographically distributed locations. The ability for online services such as InstantCard to reliably and cost-effectively handle the detailed logistics in this environment is the single most-appreciated aspect of our service,” said David Finkelstein, Founder and President of InstantCard.
