Identity Management for Government Agencies

Customizable, Secure On-site Issuance for Government

ID cards can be custom designed and printed with one of ADVANTIDGE’s ID card printers to employ a range of security features from simple photo and text identification, to barcodes, signature panels, fingerprint scans, holographic overlaminates and smart card capabilities. Holographic foils and overlaminates, more advanced visual verification techniques, can be either embedded in your cards or applied onto the card surface. Holographic foils and overlaminates come in off-the-shelf and customs versions, both of which increase visual security and protect against fraudulent duplication.

ADVANTIDGE is prepared to advise our government clients on visitor management software which seamlessly integrates all of the steps of the ID card process, from the creation of ID cards to lobby management and visitor tracking and with an emergency preparedness solution from ADVANTIDGE government agencies can further prepare for unexpected disasters.

While the list appears lengthy these requirements are easily fulfilled by our unique ID systems which have been designed specifically to meet the demands of enforcement applications.

For unexpected disasters, law enforcement agencies can further be prepared with an emergency management solution from ADVANTIDGE, which can help ensure that law enforcement and first responders are badged and identified for organization within an emergency situation.
