HID Global Improves Classroom Attendance at Dayton Public Schools While Increasing Campus Security and Safety
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, today
announced that the company's secure ID card issuance solutions, combined
with solutions from Plasco ID, a leading integrator and provider of
card-based ID systems, has enabled Dayton Public Schools (DPS) in
Dayton, Ohio to increase classroom attendance, while enhancing campus
security and safety by including new visual security elements on
multipurpose ID cards.
With over 30 buildings and special centers housing approximately 15,000
students, Ohio-based DPS needed to standardize and simplify ID card
creation while expediting the previously manual process of checking in
tardy students. Their new solution implemented by PlascoID, includes the
company's automated student management system, PlascoTrac and HID
Global's FARGO® DTC4500 card printer/encoder plus its non-technology ID
cards and AsureID® Enterprise card personalization software, which is
used to create customized student ID cards with high-quality photos and
other visual security elements. This integrated system has achieved DPS'
goals while also enhancing the security of students and visitors.
"Now that we have sped up the time it takes to create IDs and process
tardy individuals, our students are�in class more and therefore have a
greater chance for achievement and success," said Richard
Melson,�Director of The Office of Information Technology at DPS.
"Schools want integrated solutions, and a single point of contact that
can bring it all together," said Alan Mendelson, President of Plasco ID.
"DPS now has the ID badge visual security benefits, fast badge issuance
at each school, and a district-wide solution for more accurate student
attendance records and analyzing student behavior."
Benefits of the new system include:
High-volume, high-speed printing: Campus officials can now print all
student ID cards within the first week of each new school term, with
uniform quality, design and durability. Officials can also instantly
issue individual cards for new enrollees or to replace lost cards, as
Cost and time savings: Deployment required a low capital investment,
and the system was easy to set up and use with minimal operator
Adaptability to meet future needs: The field-upgradeable DTC4500 can
be modified to fit new requirements as the district's ID system needs
change and evolve. Some school sites are already using the cards for
additional applications including checking out media center resources
nd cafeteria food purchases.
Versatile operation: Asure ID enterprise software simplifies the
process of card design, data entry and badge creation, including
automating the synchronization of ID badge and attendance data with
student records information using the software's LiveLink™ capability
and the PlascoTrac Data Exchange Modules.
Simplified attendance management: With PlascoTrac, School officials
can scan late-arriving students' ID cards and automatically print a
tardy pass, cutting processing time by 50-60 percent.
"We are very pleased with DPS' success with this card issuance
solution," said Craig Sandness, vice president of product marketing,
Secure Issuance with HID Global. "We worked closely with DPS and its
integrator, Plasco ID, to identify and attempt to solve the school's
current and future security requirements as its needs evolve. This is
another great example of how the breadth and depth of HID Global's
secure issuance portfolio is helping our educational customers realize
Today, both K-12 schools and higher education colleges and universities
must combat growing security threats with shrinking budgets. This has
created demand for multi-functional smart cards that provide schools
with more versatile and efficient secure ID solutions. Thousands of
educational institutions around the world have adopted HID Global's
secure issuance solutions to create, use and manage campus ID cards that
can be utilized for physical access to buildings, logical access to
