ID Works Software Enterprise Edition

Product Summary

Datacard® ID Works® Enterprise identification software gives developers powerful options for sophisticated biometric and smart card-based programs. Including everything needed to design and produce identification cards and reports; this advanced developer package offers a complete, turnkey solution for applications requiring advanced features and security. All features included in the ID Works Enterprise Designer software and the ID Works Enterprise Production software are available in ID Works Enterprise Edition software.

Datacard® ID Works® Enterprise Designer identification software offers the design of cards, reports, and production forms with binary fields and event handlers-based button fields-plus connections to databases. Creating projects independent of production is a cost-effective, secure way to maintain control over card designs across an organization. You can take advantage of advanced components to develop a smart card or biometric program-simple or complex.

Datacard® ID Works® Enterprise Production identification software delivers advanced features for cards and reports in your ID program that is independent of design. Enter and retrieve data, quickly capture images, enroll and verify biometric templates, securely connect to databases, and send data for encoding magnetic stripes and smart cards. And, whether your ID program is simple or complex, ID Works Enterprise Production software presents an easy-to-learn user interface for production operators.

Datacard® ID Works® Enterprise Reporting provides users with the ability to design, query and print customized reports. Sample reports are provided for corporate, government, healthcare, loyalty and education vertical markets. Reports are generated from ID Works databases allowing you greater flexibility and variety for designing image or text-only reports. The software features multiple reports designed from single card projects, and displays single records or multiple records in a spreadsheet-like table or production form view.
