Find us in Training Magazine

Training Mag recently featured our service in their September/October 2017 edition of Tech Talk.
Employers that need to verify that workers are doing only jobs they’re trained for have a new solution with Credential Verification Service’s new verification wristbands. Each silicone wristband is stamped with a unique QR code. When the durable wristband is scanned with a smartphone or tablet, the employee’s updated […]

Thanks, Apple.

As you’re probably well aware, our service makes heavy use of QR code technology. But, while QR codes have been around for quite some time, native support for the 2D bar codes has been lacking in most mobile devices.

We don’t mind answering calls from people saying “I took a picture of the QR code but nothing happened.” But, it was […]

We now support worksite check-in and check-out

The Psychology of Your ID Badge Design

We had a client recently ask if it was necessary to use our system with ID cards. Perhaps you have the same question—the answer is that it is absolutely not necessary.

So, if […]

New Ransomeware Targets Linux

According to The Hacker News, a new version of KillDisk ransomeware targets linux computers. In case you were unaware, ransomeware is a […]

Thanks, CVS, for the Holiday Party Small-Talk!

Recently, I was at a holiday party with a bunch of people whom I had never met before. So, naturally, I asked generic questions like “what do you do?” One guy responded with “I’m a construction manager.”
“Really?!” I asked as though he had just told me that he was Santa himself—we had just finished creating a new landing page for […]

Request a FREE Sample CVS ID Card

Somehow, in our excitement over redesigning our website, we eliminated the page allowing you to request a free sample ID card.
This was a gross oversight—The plastic ID badges are the heart of the Credential Verification Service. And, giving you the chance to see how durable, professional, and pretty they are is very important to us. (Did we mention they’re pretty?)
We […]

InstantCard Introduction Video

At the heart of the Credential Verification Service are the plastic, credit card-style ID badges on which is printed each QR code. After all, CVS was born from InstantCard—America’s first 100% cloud-based ID card service. (Read more about our story.)

Headlong into the Precarious

We created CVS as a way to increase work site security through mobile technology. Because of this, we’re not only interested in keeping up with happenings in the construction industry, but also in keeping up with the ever shifting trends on the technological horizon. Naturally, something like the recent Samsung Galaxy Note 7 crisis raises alarms for us. But, perhaps […]
