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. But, a quick view of our site and its images would suggest that we place high value in the ID card part of our service. This is true.

So, if […]

New Ransomeware Targets Linux

At CVS we’re all about safety and security. And, additionally, we happen to have quite a few Linux machines at the office. So, the following was of extreme interest to us; and, perhaps, will be to you as well.

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 […]

Happy Labor Day!

In honor of labor day, we decided to present you with some Labor Day facts.
But, this is CVS, so we encoded them in QR codes, of course.

(These were taken from this Forbes article, but what’s the fun in reading them directly. Happy scanning!)
One of the biggest reasons we developed the Credential Verification Service was to make the workplace more secure. […]

One foot in the past

… but, to be fair, when we say “one foot in the past” we don’t mean that far into the past.

We often have people ask us about additional options for their CVS ID cards. While people immediately see the benefit of our credential management technology, they sometimes worry that they have to give up other ID card options in order to […]
