LAS VEGAS, N.V., April 6, 2016—ScholarChip® and Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), will be showcasing K12 school security products in Booth #xx at ISC West, the security industry’s premier trade show in Las Vegas, April 6-8, 2016. ScholarChip will demonstrate its One Card ID Manager software, a cloud-based, easy-to-use Smart ID card issuance system with contactless smart cards and Zebra’s industry leading tracking, access control and secure ID card printer and encoder.
The three companies recently announced their Affordable Smart Card ID Initiative, a cutting-edge program that offers a subsidy to qualifying school districts that want to implement an ultra-secure Smart ID card system for students and staff at a much more affordable price. ARMET, a national association of solution providers, will represent the program and provide installation, integration, sales, training and service of the software and hardware.
“The security industry realizes the potential in K12 campus protection, and ScholarChip offers a host of products designed for that market,” said Maged Atiya, PhD, ScholarChip CEO/CTO. “Our Smart One Card fulfills an immediate security need for districts and is a straightforward path to advanced student and campus safety solutions.”
ScholarChip’s One Card allows all doors in a building or across the district to be locked down with a single command, which can be issued from any wireless device or any computer. This immediacy improves time to action and can save lives. Also, an accurate location report is available on a tablet or computer that shows which staff members and students used their card for attendance and therefore can be identified in the building, in a specific room, which can help first responders react fast.
To automate the process even more effectively, some districts provide their local police and fire departments with precinct- or school-specific ID Cards that allow them immediate access into school buildings.
SCHOLARCHIP ONE CARD ID MANAGER
ScholarChip’s One Card ID Manager software manages the process that keeps schools secure while keeping students safe. Starting with a photograph of an individual in a school Student Information System (SIS), the system encodes a globally unique ID to that person and prints a Smart ID Card. ScholarChip uses the tightest international security standards (PCI, FISMA, SSAE16), which are the same that banks, credit card companies, and others use; individual information is secure; these cards are almost impossible to replicate.
The ScholarChip One Card can integrate with modern and legacy school systems and easily connects to a host of services like automated attendance; cafeteria purchases; free and reduced lunch program tracking; library checkouts; bus monitoring; staff time clocks; and other reportable activities throughout the campus. Also, in the case of emergency or lockdown situations, ScholarChip’s One Card ID system provides administrators and police with actionable safety information and greater control over the entire campus.
ZEBRA ZXP SERIES 3 PRINTER
Reliable, durable, lightweight, compact and easy-to-use, the Zebra Series 3 printer is an ideal solution for single or dual-sided printing applications that require minimal operator training and excellent print quality.
ScholarChip has pioneered the concept of a centralized and integrated School Safety and Operations System-a true academic one card solution. To meet the growing need for mobile technology in schools, ScholarChip has developed Apps and Smart ID cards that operate seamlessly with NFC mobile devices. In addition, ScholarChip’s Higher Education services extend to high performance Tuition Payment Plans, Loan Servicing and a compliant Payment Gateway.
