In order to address constantly evolving fraud and theft threats, businesses are deploying multiple levels of security, of which access cards are a critical component. Innovative, print-on-demand (POD) solutions enable a new generation of "intelligent" access cards that contain various technologies such as bar code, magnetic stripe, smart card contact and contactless, and radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies.
This white paper defines how human resources and security departments can print intelligent ID cards to identify employees, visitors and patrons, and manage access to facilities, equipment, and services through a range of "intelligent" access card technologies including:
- Bar code
- Magnetic stripe
- Smart card contact and contactless
- Radio frequency identification (RFID)
