HID Global Announces Cloud-Based Personalization and Issuance Solution for Cards, Credentials
HID Global, a provider of trusted-identity solutions, has introduced its HID FARGO Connect cloud-based solution, which is designed to simplify and streamline the issuance of ID cards and credentials. FARGO Connect offers a new approach to ID issuance, the company reports, replacing the paradigm of standalone printers tied to a dedicated PC workstation.
With this solution, ID cards can be issued from anywhere and from any device via a Web interface in a trusted environment. FARGO Connect allows users to remotely monitor and manage consumables, helping them to avoid out-of-stock issues and better manage replenishment processes.
Among the first to use the FARGO Connect system is Kent State University. The process of issuing student IDs to thousands of people during orientation has been simplified and streamlined through its shift to a cloud-based approach.
"As one responsible for issuing thousands of IDs at our Kent Campus and at our other sites, I see HID FARGO Connect as providing us a next-generation platform for producing cards for our students that impacts them in only positive ways," said Michael O'Karma, the university's office systems coordinator for flashcard operations, in the prepared statement. "The advantage to the students is that they do not have to wait in line any longer, and the advantage to us in the administrative office is that we can provide a better service that's more cost-effective and efficient."
HID FARGO Connect uses secure cloud technologies with end-to-end encryption and transport layer security. Users can create new cards, encode data, issue replacements and manage print queues, all in a single trusted system designed to meet regulatory security and data privacy requirements.
