IDSecurityOnline.com, a leading provider of ID card printers and photo ID systems, announced today that the company has launched a new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) Scholarship Program in 2018 to help shape our leaders of tomorrow. Taylor Delp, a pre-med senior at the University of Maine, was awarded the first $1000 Scholarship from IDSecurityOnline in early February. This new scholarship program was developed as a way for the company to give back to the education community and help students achieve their educational goals.
Over the years, IDSecurityOnline has worked closely with K-12 schools and universities worldwide to help improve safety measures with the right ID Card Solutions; and is now adding to its roster a new way of supporting the education market by helping students progress and move closer to earning a degree.
For a small business like Guaranteed Subpoena Service, hiring an outside company to issue its ID badges is a no brainer.
The Union, N.J.-based process serving company pays about $6 to print each ID and gets free shipping. With about 30 employees, it costs $180 to print all of the badges, compared to a card printer that would cost more than 10 times as much. “We can’t justify paying $2,000 for a machine when they’re charging $6 front and back for an ID. You just can’t beat the price,” says John Metta, chief technology officer at the company.
Guaranteed Subpoena Service joins a growing number of small and medium size companies that are opting to outsource their ID card issuance instead of doing the job in house. Smaller businesses like the simplicity of being able to farm out the job because they don’t have to worry about buying and maintaining issuance equipment and software, stocking card supplies onsite and paying employees to handle the work.
A s a school administrator, it is important to choose the right ID card solutions to keep your university safe and secure. In today's world, you can never be too safe or have too many security measures in place. Widely used for identification, access control, and time and attendance purposes, ID cards help identify at a glance who should be on campus, and more importantly who should not be there.
Access control and ID card technologies have evolved over time and are a huge focus for most universities around the country. Currently, the one issue that many universities face that can impede security best practices are budget constraints. When faced with a low budget for security, universities need to look at the big picture and explore all the options available to them and work with a vendor that can help them select the right ID card solution that won't break the budget.
With this philosophy in mind, IDSecurityOnline.com was born in 2009 to provide affordable, durable and easy-to-use ID card solutions to all, including schools, universities, hospitals, event facilities and Fortune 500 companies. Today, IDSecurityOnline.com is a leading provider of ID card printers and photo ID systems and recently ranked #214 on the 2014 Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive list of America's fastest-growing private companies. IDSecurityOnline.com has earned the #214 position on this list thanks to Schonzeit's forward thinking and strong entrepreneurship. Under Schonzeit's leadership, the company has seen an astonishing three-year sales growth of 2,093%. In addition, IDSecurityOnline.com has been named the 4th fastest growing security company in the United States and ranked #16 on the list of Top Companies in New York and #20 on the list of Top Companies in the New York City Metro Area.
In order to keep its on-campus security demands on pace with its growing student population, Mildred Elley College turned to ID Security Online’s ID card solution.
The solution entailed HID proximity sensors, which were installed in the Manhattan campus’s main academic building entrances, and HID ISOProx II cards.
Each card is personalized with a student’s name and picture, and is swiped over a reader for entry into the campuses’ academic buildings.
Each card has “a unique ID number that is programmed inside the piece of plastic, which is associated with a person in the software,” says Brett St. Pierre, Director of Business Development, Education Solutions with HID Global. “If the card is ever read, there’s no personal information about that person, it’s just an ID number. That ID number is then used for different applications on campus, primarily for access control.”
