Credential Verification Service adds a new “virtual” dimension to your ID Card program.

QR Codes (QR stands for “Quick Response”) are smartphone-readable 2-D barcodes that have been big in Japan since their introduction by Toyota as a means of rapidly tracking car components. In 2011 QR Codes began to be used extensively in Europe and in North America to act as a bridge between printed material in the physical world and virtual records in the cloud.

The InstantCard CVS (Credential Verification Service) is an example of how QR codes can significantly enhance the services obtained from your ID badges. Once a badge is issued, employees continue to take training and certification courses. Rather than re-printing the badge each time a new certification is obtained, the QR code allows on-line checking of current up-to-the-minute certifications and qualifications.

Anyone with a QR-code reader app in their phone or tablet will be able to use their camera to read the QR code, either from the actual Photo ID card, or from the image on the screen. They will immediately see the following information displayed in their phone, with current records pulled from the InstantCard server’s data base storing information associated with each ID card issued:

The InstantCard CVS system can generate QR codes on the front or the back of the card. Multiple codes can be printed on each card. Data on sites referenced in a QR Code can also be password-protected.

In essence, CVS allows you to have multiple virtual “sides” of the card. Rather than being limited to just the “front” and “back” of the card, CVS allows you to create and view unlimited pages, or “sides”, of a single card.
