Is ID Card Software Specific to a Printer?

Posted May 27, 2015

2015-05-27_0944Most ID card printer manufacturers have their own software. Datacard’s TruCredential, Zebra’s ZMotif CardStudio, and Fargo’s Asure ID have various versions and levels of sophistication. All have general design capabilities, and then advance to allow for additional benefits including but not limited to centralized databases, visitor management, and network capabilities.  But are the various software choices only compatible with the same brand of printers? The answer is no.  The software mentioned above are compatible across brands. Your choice should depend on ease of use and features set.  Datacard’s new TruCredential has an extremely easy user-interface and allows you to design process flows for your typical ID needs.  The software, recently released, offers the best of multiple Datacard software (ID Works and TruPhoto).

Always feel free to consult an ID professional with any questions on what is the best software for you.
