I recently started working with InstantCard to help launch their new Credential Verification Service.  I was (and still am) excited about this project for a number of reasons.  One reason is that it afforded me the chance to produce some video content–something which I really enjoy.  Another reason, and probably the most important one, is that I really think this is an awesome product.

As a graphic artist, I often send things which I am working on to friends or colleagues whose opinion I trust.  One such friend happens to be a software developer I sometimes work with.  His honesty and attention to detail make him a great sounding board for my projects.  So, while working on the new CVS video, I sent him a draft to get his opinion.  This is the conversation which followed:

Indeed, I am impressed with this service.  And, my friend was correct–It helps to believe in the product.

As part of learning about CVS for the video, I was able to play with a trial account (you can get a trial account for free to test it yourself–just ask).  While the simplicity of the use of QR codes is ingenious, I was really impressed with the online management system.  It’s surprisingly versatile for something which is so easy to use.

For the moment, CVS is being mostly used in the construction industry, so we made that the focus of the video.  I genuinely do believe, however, that it will prove to have some really cool applications which we haven’t even thought of yet. (If you can think of one, feel free to leave a comment.)

If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look at the final version of the video.  Let me know in the comments if you agree with my friend.
