Educational institutions from K-level to higher education must provide a safe and secure environment. These institutions can meet campus security requirements while effectively managing the costs by implementing a single student ID card as a platform for multiple ID applications. Photo ID badges serve to visually identify students, staff, and visitors at a glance and integrate with other applications: food service account management, library checkouts, physical access to facilities, logical access control to computer accounts, as well as tracking student activity and attendance. Student ID cards also provide remote access for student assignments, examinations, and student paper submissions. Additionally, temporary ID cards are issued to visitors for visitor management control services.
Certain areas within the campus, research labs or IT departments, may require even higher security such as biometric access control, facial recognition or fingerprint verification. A growing number of college campuses use smart ID cards as an all-in-one solution to further enhance the student experience by using the card for applications such as vending, cafeteria, print & copy control, laundry, library, door access control, lab attendance, activities tied to pay, trips, assets, equipment, textbooks, AV/computers, rec center, and many more.
Market drivers include high security, reduced overall cost, and support for multiple applications. The Valid USA WebLink ID and K12 Visitor Management application (VMA) enable schools to realize these benefits.
WebLink ID and K12 VMA form a robust and cost effective security platform for school administrators to provide a safe and secure campus. The application suite registers, authorizes, and tracks access to facilities and extends an ID system to provide secure credentials to authorized staff, students, and visitors.
WebLink ID – Photo ID Enrollment and Issuance
WebLink ID securely enrolls identities and manages the ID card issuance process and scales for a single-site campus to multi-site school corporations. Any authorized PC with internet (hosted SaaS server) or intranet (on-premise server) access transforms it into a feature-rich photo ID card processing workstation. This reduces the overhead of managing local PC installations and license keys.
The application’s core is a highly-configurable and adaptable workflow processing engine which accommodates YOUR institution’s identity verification and ID card issuance requirements. System administrators define and create the required workflows through an intuitive user interface. Future changes to the workflow process or adoption of new credentialing functions are implemented enterprise-wide throughout multiple sites from a centralized module offering ultimate portability and business process consistency without negatively impacting day-to-day operations of individual sites.See more information regarding WebLink ID
