The Importance of Standardized Names

  Whenever you manage a complex data base, with thousands of data records, you will certainly encounter the "nomenclature" problem.

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. [...]

While the idea of new software and functionality is exciting, the prospect of changing to a new system can be a little taxing.  [...]
