Ask the experts: Imaging systems ...

What imaging/card production software do you recommend to your clients and what card printers?

Chris Rizetto, Director-Higher Ed, Vision Database Systems
We recommend our RapIDcard line of products.   Typically for colleges or universities we recommend either our IDMS (ID Management System), or Pro versions because of their flexibility and integration capabilities with other campus systems such as SIS, an existing card system, meal plan, library, etc.   Also, our software is able to use most cameras and printer brands.

We are a “one stop shop” and offer all ID card components including choice of most printer brands/types.   Recommendations are based solely on client needs and requirements.

Mark Reinart, Mgr, Marketing & Business Development, Diebold
Diebold sells the DataCard ID Works solution with an easy to use seamless interface to CS Gold.  CS CardLink makes the ID badging process fast and efficient.

Diebold offers a wide range of ID badge printers.  The most popular models currently are the DataCard Select and Magna series of quality printers.

Jeff Zander, General Meters Corporation, Vice President
General Meters has designed GMCID software (aka: ID32) which allows images to be sent/shared across the campus network, prints photo seating charts and semester validations and most importantly, permits the ID database to integrate with the OneCard (debit/access/meal plan) database so captured images can be viewed from within any card holder record and at all Administrative Terminals.

We use primarily Fargo printers however, we are able to work with virtually every ID card printer manufactured in the US, Canada and Europe.
