How QR Codes Revolutionise Staff ID Card Management

What are the benefits of using QR codes on staff ID cards?

Using QR codes on staff ID cards offers numerous benefits for both organisations and employees.

These advantages include enhanced security due to control over sensitive data, quick verification of employees at entry points, and the ability to customise the information encoded based on specific access control needs. QR codes also improved tracking and reporting of employee movements, simplifying administrative tasks and reducing the burden on HR. They are cost-effective, making them a practical choice compared to other security options.

What kind of information do I put on a QR code?

The information you choose to put in the QR code depends on your organisation's needs. Common details include your employee ID number, access privileges, name, department, and other relevant identification information. Make sure that the information is accurate and up-to-date.

What happens if I lose my ID card with a QR code on?

If you lose your Staff ID badge you can inform your IT department and the QR code can be deactivated, therefore no information is at risk and will prevent unauthorised access.

How do I use a QR code on my Staff ID card?

Most smartphones will be able to scan the QR code on your workplace ID card due to built in QR code scanning abilities on camera apps or you have the option of using a QR code scanner.

How do I create a QR code for ID cards?

You first need to generate a QR code which you can do for free using online QR code generators or an alternative to this would be having your IT department or card provider generate one for you. Then, place your QR code onto your ID card design. Alternatively, we offer our own staff id printing service and QR codes are printed as an optional extra onto the card as a security feature.

ID Card QR code Generator

One way to create a QR Code is using an online QR code generator for ID cards. However, many hide surprise payments or will disable QR codes and require payment after a period of time. If you do use this route, check the reputation of the company, read reviews, and check the small prints in agreements.

For these reasons, we do not recommend this route. Instead, reach out to your IT team to create one for you or let us know that you require a QR code to be created with your ID Cards and we will be happy to do this for you!
