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.
