Why You Should Use Capture Devices

Capture Devices Data capture devices can add security, convenience and advanced functionality to your ID card program in a variety of ways. These devices range from magnetic stripe readers and barcode scanners, to signature capture pads, fingerprint scanners, and more. Incorporating data capture into your program improves accuracy, speeds up operations, and helps make your ID cards more secure and functional.

DiscountID carries a full line of data capture devices fit for any situation, whether you need a magnetic stripe reader for checking in members at a health club, or a signature capture device for adding electronic signatures to the back of your cards.

Scanners and readers really can play a pivotal role in your ID card operation. Think about it. Without the reader, the card serves as visual proof of identification. Add a reader and now we're talking about new levels of functionality, from check-in/checkout processes, to time-and-attendance, meal plans, and more. Fingerprint scanners and signature pads, on the other hand, work to ensure your cards are secure, completely unique, and protected from illegal duplication. Adding security elements such as fingerprints and electronic signatures is a great way to increase the level of card protection, while also making cards more effective for critical identification purposes.

What's the key to taking a good ID photo? Well, besides the presentable appearance of your subject, it's all about lighting and a clean background. Without the proper lighting, even the most meticulously groomed model is going to look bad.
