New White Paper by IDville Details the Importance of ID Card Systems and ID Badges.

IDville white paper explains how healthcare and education organizations can increase security and efficiency with an ID card system.

Grand Rapids, MI - IDville, the leading identification and security expert for business, education, healthcare, and government, has released the white paper "ID Card Systems - Why Identify?" In the white paper, IDville shares its 20 years of experience to describe the benefits of an ID card system in the workplace.

ID card systems outfit students, staff, and visitors with a photo ID badge that can be worn on the premises each day. It also helps to identify visitors who may not have a legitimate reason to be on the premises. Many organizations use their ID card system to restrict access to the building by using proximity cards, also known as contactless cards, and this use of ID badges has been established as a workplace prevention strategy.

IDville's white paper outlines the primary benefits of an ID card system to be increased security and efficiency, and an ID card system can offer these benefits with at a lower cost than other forms of security. IDville's white paper gives clear examples of the benefits in both education and healthcare environments.

Schools that require students and staff to display an ID badge create a safe atmosphere in the building. IDville also asserts that ID badges are more cost effective and inviting in a school than other forms of security, such as cameras, guards, and metal detectors. Plus, schools can increase efficiency with ID badges by integrating their library and lunch systems through a barcode on the badge. Schools can accomplish all this by designing their own ID badges with an ID card system.

IDville notes that healthcare organizations can prevent both physical and intellectual security breaches by implementing an ID card system. With more medical records being stored electronically, it is crucial that healthcare organizations protect patient information by restricting access. ID badges can communicate authorization levels and help staff members clearly identify who does and does not belong.

Over time, an ID card system pays for itself, and organizations will quickly see financial, security, and morale returns on the investment. Organizations that are interested in learning more about the benefits of an ID card system can get detailed information and data in the "ID Card Systems - Why Identify?" white paper on IDville.com.
