Description

Alpha Card Enterprise Software

For large corporations, universities, government offices or any organization with more than one location, Alpha Card Enterprise software offers completely customizable design and the security elements you require to create secure ID cards with a slick, professional appearance. Alpha Card Enterprise encorporates all of the features of Alpha Card Professional and Standard, plus more security and customization options so that you can format and lay out your cards exactly how you wish. With such secure network communication, you can rest easy knowing that your cards won't be compromised.

Alpha Card Enterprise offers the password-protection and user authorization features of Alpha Card Professional, in which you decide which privileges to bestow upon different users. However, Alpha Card Enterprise also offers the option to encrypt a digital key into your designs. This key can only be reproduced on your network by an authorized user, which helps protect you from counterfeit ID cards. If a card doesn't contain your specific digital key, you know it's not a valid ID badge. And in addition to the watermarks you can create using the opacity editing tool with other versions of this software, Alpha Card Enterprise contains the capability to create special secure watermarks as well. These secure watermarks blend an algorithm into the mark itself so that it cannot be duplicated.

Alpha Card Enterprise allows you to import database records and create custom drop-down lists to keep your cardholders organized efficiently. It can also connect to a variety of file-based databases or ODBC-compatible databases like Oracle and MS SQL Server. And with design functions like conditional layers for batch ID card printing, opacity effects, custom layout options and a host of other tools, Alpha Card Enterprise gives you total freedom to create secure cards that are completely unique to your organization.
