Purchasing ID cards online provides a wide range of benefits to most corporations. If you are planning to implement an ID card program in your organization, you should carefully consider whether outsourcing makes sense for your company. Most companies with a typical card production profile find that, when they make a cost comparison, an outsourced service is far more economical. Savings can be up to 75%, relative to purchasing of in-house equipment.
There is an increasingly large range of industries where photo ID cards have become the norm. Among the range of InstantCard clients, first and foremost are the multi-site corporations which gain flexibility, accountability, and significant cost savings through outsourcing. Companies which provide transporation and delivery services recognize the need for clear, positive employee identification. Likewise, many businesses whose employees provide services in homes and offices require their staff to wear photo ID cards at all times. A wide range of companies in the medical profession are large consumers of photo ID badges, including home health care companies, and well as hospitals, clinics, and medical facilities.
Government entities, especially state and local, nearly all use photo identification cards. For example, most Police, Fire, and First Responders carry professional ID cards. Schools, colleges, and universities nearly all issue photo ID cards for students and staff members. Closely associated is the non-profit sector, whose staff members often have to display ID badges with their pictures. And many professional and voluntary organizations routinely issue membership cards to their members for identification purposes.
ID cards are often used to present training credentials, so that people who have completed a professional training or certification program can easily show their qualifications. In fact, InstantCard has developed a unique, online credential verification service which allows anyone to check the current validity of credentials with a cellphone.
A final area where Photo ID cards have become industry “best practice” is in the area of employee safety. Photo Lockout-Tagout tags are being widely and systematically used in factories and manufacturing environments around the country to protect workers from accidents.
