As one semester trundles by and another gets set to start, it’s vital for school offices to be aware of their ID card printer and supply needs. There’s no more unsettling feeling than, when faced with an onslaught of new ID card requests, an office is unprepared and faced with an emergency.
A solid Top 6 list of ways to be ready for a new year of ID card business can be found here. From inventory to system upgrades, the list covers every aspect of readiness for offices getting ready for the return of college students.
Of all the aspects of a student ID Card system that is most underrated is the need for students to become aware of the benefits associated with the card itself. A new semester is the perfect time for college campuses to focus on outreach in order to make students aware of the benefits of a smart ID Card.
Students are often unaware of the multitude of uses for their student ID card. A thorough marketing plan can inform students on how to add money to the smart card, where on campus they can use their card, and what online resources are available to them.
Another aspect of readiness that should be focused on is making sure the staff is up-to-date on any system changes or upgrades. Having staff learn new features of the card printing system on the fly will not only lead to longer wait times for students, but will produce an increase in errors.
