Here's how you can use smartphones to verify student IDs

FREE, on-demand webinar details PockeTracker mobile ID verification

Andrew Hudson   ||   Aug 04, 2017  ||   , ,

Verifying student IDs on campus is a vital task for every institution. But as the modern campus continues to evolve and the number of ID verification environments grows, so too does the need for flexibility and mobility in how student IDs are verified.

A growing trend in verification is the use of mobile devices to facilitate the scanning of IDs, and a growing number of campuses are taking notice. With this in mind, we partnered with Vision Database Systems to discuss the use of mobile devices for ID verification.

In a free 25-minute, on-demand webinar hear how campuses can leverage existing smartphones to log attendance and other vital student traffic information all while scanning the full range of campus card technologies. In the webinar, we discuss specifically the PockeTracker solution from Vision Database, which leverages sleds — or pieces of hardware that attach to a smartphone to scan student IDs — and the solution’s backend system that handles reporting and privileges.

The solution has already been deployed at campuses across the country, and joining the webinar is one of the institutions that is using PockeTracker to it’s fullest potential — Madison Area Technical College. Hear how Madison College is using mobile ID verification solutions from Vision Database to monitor access to its campus health clinic, issue valuable city bus passes to students and monitor student access to the College’s campus-to-campus shuttle service.

If your campus is looking for an increasingly agile and flexible means to verify campus cards, or if you've already considered a mobile-based solution, our "Mobile ID Verification Made Easy" webinar will offer some valuable insight into how to get started.
