Visitors to stand D1950 at IFSEC International 2014 will find the Essentra Security team are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to demonstrate new innovative ID solutions which have recently been introduced to make the in-house production and management of ID cards almost effortless, as well as cost-effective.
Essentra Security is Europe’s leading specialist distributor of ID systems, printers and accessories and according to UK Director of Sales, Richard Moore, the timing of the show could not be better. “As in previous years we will be demonstrating the very latest generation of ID printers from leading manufacturers such as Magicard and Evolis, and among the new printers on demonstration will be the SD460 printer and laminator from Datacard and the enhanced DTC range from Fargo.
Also on show will be the new BadgeMaker card design software which Essentra Security are confident will attract considerable interest from customers who are looking for an all-in-one software solution for the design and production of ID cards as well as data management.”
With the launch of BadgeMaker, Essentra will be the first in the UK to offer Smart Card Encoding functionality for DESFire EV1, plus the software will offer a clear upgrade path from the legacy idpro software, one of the UK’s most successful ID Card software packages. There are now two main elements to the BadgeMaker software package. BadgeMaker IDENTITY focuses on data management and effective ID card production. It makes it easy for card holder data to be imported from file formats such as CSV and Excel, whilst individual records can be added or modified manually.
A comprehensive photo capturing tool features facial recognition, automatic cropping and a three-picture snapshot, whilst the multiple view options available with BadgeMaker IDENTITY, which include Grid View, Detail View and the Photo Slider, allows users to efficiently find and verify a person.
BadgeMaker DESIGN enables users to create their own professional card designs that can include backgrounds, dynamic fields and images. One of the many great features of BadgeMaker DESIGN is that users are able to create a library of designs and if/when required they can easily be assigned to different BadgeMaker IDENTITY projects.
“We are experiencing increasing demand for cost-effective ID printing solutions from businesses and organisations who wish to have the flexibility of onsite issuance of security cards,” said Richard Moore. “Our knowledge and experience in the ID Card Printing market means we are ideally positioned to develop this business further and with BadgeMaker included in our ID solutions portfolio, we will be able to demonstrate to IFSEC visitors that we are in a very strong position to help them with all their ID card requirements.
