Entrust Datacard TruCredential ID Creator Software Goes Mobile


With TruCredential 7.5, users can capture and print IDs with a mobile
device that's connected to a network printer.

Entrust Datacard, a leading provider of trusted identity and secure
transaction technology solutions, today announced the release of
TruCredential 7.5 software that enables tablet and mobile-based capture
and issuance of ID cards.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

A traditional capture station consists of a network computer linked to a
camera and printer. With TruCredential 7.5, card program administrators
are no longer tethered to this hardwired set up. Instead, users can
capture and print IDs with a mobile device from anywhere on their
network and print to any network-connected printer.

Instead of having to capture photos on a stationary camera, card issuers
can use the advanced camera technology available on today's connected
devices. The mobile solution streamlines the ID credentialing process
for maximum efficiency. This has benefits for multiple industries. For
example, universities can eliminate lines at the card office by
capturing photos and enrolling students in the bookstore, in front of
the dorms, or in the cafeteria during orientation day, and batch print
back to card printers in a central card office.

Another option is to set up check-in kiosks with a mounted tablet in a
corporate lobby which enables the user to self-enroll and capture their
photo, and a guest ID is printed at the main security desk.

Another unique feature of TruCredential is its server-based installation
that enables multiple benefits such as:

  • Printer access from any secure connected device; if one printer is
    down, card administrators can route jobs to another printer.
  • Card templates that only need to be created once, and can be accessed
    by multiple workstations and printers – freeing up IT resources and
    repetition in multi-printer deployments.
  • Software updates that only need to be done once, instead of updates
    deployed station-by-station.

"Hosting card software on the server is pivotal for digital ID
issuance," says Dan Sanden, VP of Software Solutions at Entrust
Datacard. "With TruCredential 7.5, all ID capture stations can access
card templates from anywhere, which frees up the entire process for card

TruCredential 7.5 also includes many new improvements to support large
organizations, including robust web service integration capabilities,
better tools for managing large batch print jobs and a new tool for
automatic cropping.
