Entrust Datacard launches TruCredential 7.5


Entrust Datacard has launched TruCredential 7.5 software, designed to enable tablet and mobile-based capture and issuance of ID cards. 

According to the company, a traditional capture station consists of a network computer linked to a camera and printer. With TruCredential 7.5, card programme 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. Enrust Datacard says this means, for example, that 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.

According to Entrust Datacard, TruCredential has a server-based installation that enables:

  • 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.
  • Software updates that only need to be carried out 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 administrators.”
