Flexible Card Design Options
To help you start designing ID cards right out of the box, AlphaCard School ID comes with three pre-designed student ID card templates that can be fully customized.
If you prefer to design your own cards the step-by-step design wizard walks you through the process and makes it easy to add text, graphics, and logos like your school mascot, and encode magnetic stripes and barcodes.
With the Professional edition, you can also create multiple layouts per card template. AlphaCard School ID will hold an unlimited number of card design templates so you can distinguish between students, staff, and other ID cards.
School-Focused Data Management Options
AlphaCard School ID allows you to easily create and store details for an unlimited number of people including students, staff, volunteers, contractors, and visitors. Choose which information you want to store and print – built-in options include student ID number, grade, homeroom, and even emergency contacts.
To streamline data entry you can create customized drop-down lists and choose which information is required for each type of card. You can even import or manage data by connecting AlphaCard School ID to an existing Microsoft Access, Excel, MS SQL, MySQL, SQLite, Oracle, and ODBC/OLE database.
AlphaCard School ID supports most digital cameras, as well as a selection of digital signature pads and fingerprint capture devices. For quicker check-in of visitors, volunteers, and contractors, you can also scan a government-issued ID to auto-populate the data fields. If you already have student or staff photos stored on your school's network, can you easily connect them to AlphaCard School ID.
