Zebra Success Story: Butler University cuts hours off new students registration

Butler University

Industry                                                            Butler University Logo

Butler University struggled with slow printing of student ID cards, especially during high-volume new student registration. Ink also didn’t hold up well over time.

Zebra’s ZXP Series 7 card printers integrate printing and lamination into one step, and deliver faster, higher-quality printing.

•For new student registration,integrated printing andlamination saves approximately 45 seconds on every card.
•Across 200 students, Butler saves 2.5 hours, allowing staff handling registration to complete the process sooner.
•With digital printing, colorphotos don’t fade and printed dye doesn’t wear off or transfer to wallets, reducing frustrating for students and campus staff.

Longer ETAs on HID access cards
2014-09-04  |  Image Sales Shipping Room

Due to structural changes at HID, all Card production is now located in Texas. With that said, expect a longer ETA when ordering HID access cards. That means that all cards we need to order directly from HID will take around 2 weeks to be delivered. Remember: we can still program small amounts of cards in-house and we still have the generic cards available right here in the bay area. Ask your sales representative for more information.

Does your company have a procedure to "sign-in" visitors who come to your facility?
