Three challenges facing ID card programs
Organizations face challenges that can be costly when managing their identification card (ID) programs if they don’t consider the impact to their business. Some of these challenges are a result of the type of printer ink technology used for ID card programs. Three challenges facing card printer program administrators include:
Environmental exposure. Exposure to environmental factors, such as UV light, can impact a badge when someone wears the badge in a visible way during work (both outdoors and indoors). Exposure to fluorescent lighting can take its toll on the badge and it’s even worse when employees are working outdoors. When people get done with work and put their ID badge on the dashboard of their car during the drive home, the effects are compounded.
Many organizations will try to address this issue by buying expensive UV blocker laminates. And they often have a higher reissuance of cards due to damage from exposure to light.
