Using identity to provide a secure and efficient learning environment.
Identity solutions for educational establishments go far beyond a means of visual security. For example identity credentials can safeguard young students from nurseries through to elementary level by ensuring only authorized individuals can collect them at the end of the school day. They can be used to prevent unauthorized access to school sites, buildings and classrooms. In higher education establishments student credentials are typically multi-functional, combining ID with access to buildings, facilities and networks, alongside other applications such as cashless payment, library access and time and attendance.
Student and staff ID cards
Understanding and tracking who is on site is critical to maintain security for students and staff alike. Student IDs can ensure that only authorized individuals are on site and can be used to track access and attendance.
Matica offers a range of on-site desktop issuance solutions that combine ID management software with secure card printing and encoding. These credentials can be further enhanced with integration to the school’s access control and time and attendance systems.
Multi-functional higher education IDs
A university ID is more than a simple visual identity. It is a multi-functional credential that can be used multiple times and for multiple applications throughout the day. This can include cashless payments for canteens, vending machines and resources such as photocopiers and printers. In addition, this credential can be used to grant access to classrooms, student accommodation or for logical access to networks, data and information.
Matica has a range of issuance systems that combine flexible personalization with the high level of electronic and physical security required for payment applications.
Visitors to educational establishments must be managed in accordance with policy, typically with a focus on student security. Matica’s range of desktop issuance systems enable pre-registration, instant on-site issuance and lifecycle management of visitor cards.
