ID Works Software Standard Edition

Product Summary

Datacard® ID Works® Standard identification software offers more features for flexible and secure design and production for your ID program. You can quickly and easily design cards, reports, and production forms, enter and retrieve data and connect to a variety of image capture devices and industry-leading card printers. ID Works Standard software delivers everything you need to move your card program, including smart cards, to a higher level. All features included in ID Works Standard Designer software and the ID Works Standard Production software, are available in ID Works Standard Edition software.

Datacard® ID Works® Standard Designer identification software lets you design cards and reports, creating projects independent from the card production process, with the flexibility to design cards from one software application and produce them from another. You can increase security and reduce costs per workstation by allowing employees not involved in identification enrollment or production to design cards and reports.

Datacard® ID Works® Standard Production identification software lets you produce photo IDs completely independent from card design. You can enter and retrieve data, quickly capture images with a "hands-free," software-controlled camera, securely connect to ODBC databases and send data for encoding magnetic stripes and smart cards. It is a powerful, stand-alone production platform.

Datacard® ID Works® Standard Reporting provides users with the ability to design, query, and print reports. Sample reports are provided for corporate, government, healthcare, loyalty and education vertical markets. Reports are generated from ID Works databases allowing you greater flexibility and variety for designing image or text-only reports.
