BlueStar, the leading global innovator in solutions-based distribution for Auto ID, Point-of-Sale, Mobility, and RFID products, has augmented its offerings to value-added resellers through the new Zebra Technologies QuikCard ID Solution. Specifically designed for small to mid-size businesses, the QuikCard ID system gives companies everything they need to quickly and easily produce professional-quality ID badges.
"The QuikCard ID Solution is designed to meet the access and ID needs of smaller organizations without requiring major capital investment or specialized technical expertise," said Ram Ramaprasad, Director of Product Management for Zebra Technologies. "By removing these entry barriers, Zebra's out-of-the-box solution offers new and existing market segments a practical way to deploy entry-level card applications."
Assembled as an all-in-one system, the QuikCard ID Solution combines the benefits of Zebra's market-leading Value Class printers with innovative card design software and design templates. The QuikCard ID Solution enables users to design and print high-quality color photo ID cards for applications such as access control badges, visitor ID management, retail loyalty cards, and membership cards. The solution also works extremely well for ID cards for educational institutions, state and local government, public safety agencies and not-for-profit organizations.
"Zebra's new QuikCard ID Solution allows VARs to quickly and easily deploy an integrated photo ID solution into new and existing markets," says Kelly Seelbach, BlueStar's Zebra Technologies Business Development Manager. "The features and benefits of this cost-effective solution are especially beneficial for those customers who require flexibility and ease-of-use."
BlueStar VARs will find particular value in the all-inclusive nature of the QuikCard ID system, which has been developed with all necessary components in one package. The solution includes:
