Our automated credentialing solution will handle the tedious process of printing and encoding cards in batch, leaving you with extra pair of hands to focus on other tasks. Using this approach, an organization can print and encode large numbers of cards quickly, without requiring a large staff.
How automated credentialing works
The setup is composed of the following components:
2) Personal Credential Assistant (PCA)
3) HDP 5000 Printer
4) HID CMS
While using IdExchange an authorized user will select the users to be credentialed. Next, the PCA workstation will interact with the HDP5000 printer to encode the credential and then print the credential. Once complete, the card is ejected. This automated credentialing process repeats itself over and over again for each new person that has been selected.
Using an API or manually locating the user, the organization will submit a credential request to the IdExchange system. The request is then validated and queued for processing.
PCA feeds the card into the printer’s smart card reader where the card is inspected and encoded with the user’s digital certificate. After the encoding process, the card is locked for security purposes
PCA feeds the card into the printer’s printing bay where the card is printed with the user’s data. After the printing activities, the card is ejected.
An authorized operator will obtain the cards and then inform the user the card is ready to be picked up. The user will then be verified and then will securely unlock the credential and set a new PIN.
