Systems Technologies finds

June '99 Access Control & Identity Management

Systems Technologies has sold over 3,500 PhotoCard systems world-wide, including numerous educational institutions in both South Africa and the US.

More than 25 public schools in Chicago alone boast PhotoCard ID Systems, whilst in South Africa UNISA, ML Sultan Technikon (KZN), Wits Technikon, University of Durban Westville, Natal University, RAU, University of Pretoria, Cape Technikon, University of the North, MEDUNSA, Potchefstroom University, Free State Technikon, Botswana University and Rhodes University amongst others all have a Systems Technologies solution in one form or another installed.

Following on from its success in entrenching its badging systems into educational institutions world-wide, Systems Technologies has developed an integrated access control and student badging solution. Locally developed and based on the combination of its successful PhotoCard ID System and Octopus Access Control System, the integrated package allows University/Technikon and School administrators to administrate student access to campus, hostels, to track on- and off-campus purchases, facilitate canteen purchases and enable the use of electronic equipment such as photocopy machines and printers.

To round off its comprehensive ID card range, Systems technologies also offers telephone cards with automatic serialisation. The company also now offers a full range of consumables including card holders, lanyards, clips, chains etc.

Hospitality cards

Systems Technologies ID cards are also popular in the hotel industry due to their use as hospitality cards, which double as hotel keylock/ID cards. For a small premium these cards can be custom printed with an advertising message for the hotel or a sponsor, helping to offset the cost of the cards to the hotel.

Systems Technologies has also recently supplied the SA Blood Bank with a PhotoCard System and more than 200,000 ID cards for use by the Blood Bank's donors. These cards have been specially processed so that the back of the card can be written on using indelible ink, allowing blood donations to be recorded on the ID card itself.
