The Importance of Standardized Names

  Whenever you manage a complex data base, with thousands of data records, you will certainly encounter the "nomenclature" problem. This is the need to have a naming convention for calling things by standardized names. As a simple example, the titles "Assistant Foreman", "Asst Foreman", and "ASSIST. FOREMAN" may all mean exactly the same thing. But these three terms will look [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

You’re making my job more difficult.

... and it's a good thing. We're in the process of redeveloping the Credential Verification Service user interface (UI). While our current UI works great, we're constantly trying to make your job all the easier by streamlining how you interact with the service. I am the one who is charged with some of the initial ideas for the UI. So, [...]

How does CVS handle seasonal or temporary employees?

The Credential Verification Service has an "active" flag for each employee.  All employees default to "active" status.  However, at any time, employee's status can be switched to "inactive".  This does not delete any data in the data base.  However, when such an employee's card is scanned, the message "Employee not active in the CVS System" will be displayed.  No billing [...]

New CVS “How-To” Videos

At InstantCard, we understand that new technology, like CVS, can be a bit overwhelming.  For me, every time there is a new version of my graphic design or video software I hesitate a bit before hitting "download." While the idea of new software and functionality is exciting, the prospect of changing to a new system can be a little taxing.  [...]

The New CVS Video

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 [...]
