Futureproofing Card Issuance: Transitioning from Desktop to Cloud-Based Card Issuance Software

Futureproofing Card Issuance: Transitioning from Desktop to Cloud-Based Card Issuance Software

The prevalence of the cloud is seemingly everywhere, and more and more traditional applications are heading in this direction.  Whether it’s to watch the latest Netflix show at home or create a presentation using Office365 we use cloud solutions around every turn and the benefits are obvious.  We no longer need to download any software, information is synced between all your devices, and you can literally access the application from anywhere.  As such, it’s no surprise that cloud-based card issuance solutions have started to pop up with varying level of capabilities.  The appeal is real and moving to a cloud-based card issuance solution may be easier than you thought.   

In this session, we will cover: 

  • Pros and cons of moving to a cloud-based card issuance solution
  • Best practices for a smooth transition
  • Futureproofing the solution so you don’t have to deal with an outdated or discontinued product 

You will leave this webinar with some questions that you can take back to your organization to help determine if switching to a cloud card issuance solution is in fact right for you.

Presenters:
David O’Driscoll, Sr. Director, Strategic Initiatives, HID Global
Andrew Morris, Solutions Manager, Sales, HID Global

Jorrun Liston:
Welcome to Futureproofing Card Issuance – Transition to Cloud-Based Card Issuance

Jorrun Liston:
Welcome! We’re recording this presentation and will post it soon to naccuTV.

Jill Meginnis:
Thank you for the comment on my pups!

David O’Driscoll:
I will add that our partners will assist with creating templates for you as well. Particularly with the current promo now that service is rolled in to the offering

John Ogle:
Is there any special hardware needed to issue to remote locations?

Kevin Halligan:
When the console is configured for user selected release, is a there a configurable option to search using a unique field? Eg. We have 172 people with the names “Manpreet Kaur” in our campus card system. Or 2,042 people with the last name “Kaur”.

Kevin Halligan:
Can I create a “printer pool” for each campus? If so, how would I define what printer pool a job should be queued in? Can this have a default set based on the user account or would it need to be set on each job.

Kevin Halligan:
Can the card design be auto selected based on another value available on the account in the campus card system such as PeopleType? We don’t want our student operators to be able to choose. (Atrium example)

Kevin Halligan:
What network options are available for the console (Wi-Fi, LTE, Ethernet)

Kevin Halligan:
OK, yes, like an ID number instead of a name

Kevin Halligan:
Thank you!

Jorrun Liston:
Great info. Thanks Andrew and David!

Lauri MacLeod to Everyone:

Jen McDonald – Georgian College:
