When starting an ID card printing and issuance program, one of the many considerations you’ll make for your company or organization is selecting which ID card software to use. There are several options available at different price points, each with varying sophistication in terms of features.
If you’re looking for the cheapest solution, the bundled software that comes free with your ID card printer is your best option. Do note, however, that bundled ID card software often have the most basic of features. While you can design, add cardholder information, generate barcodes, and print beautiful ID badges using free ID software, you will likely not have the option to save your custom ID data or store cardholder information in a database. This significantly limits your capability to generate ID issuance reports or your ability to do quick badge reprints.
Luckily, ID card software developers know that customer’s needs change over time, which is why they have created upgrade packages where additional functionality like database support can be added. One of the benefits of having database support in ID card software is the ability to print and encode multiple ID badges at once instead of printing one ID card at a time, complete with variable cardholder information, and all without your manual intervention.
Finally, if your company or organization requires more robust features like multi-user access, enhanced security, upgraded database capabilities, network access, and a host of other features, you can opt for the professional or advanced edition of your chosen software.
What’s great about the ID card software industry is that developers offer trial versions of their software so users like you can test the software before making a purchase. Of course, this also helps eliminate any incompatibility issue with the computer and operating system you are using.
