ID Works Basic Software Description

ID Works Basic Software was designed with traditional small- to medium-sized organizations in mind, offering simplified ID card issuance and effective program management. If your credential program requirements demand increased functionality and flexibility over time, you can advance to new features and capabilities with a simple upgrade to the next level. ID Works 571897-002 offers the essential tools for implementing a successful ID card program.

User-friendly interface
Entrust Datacard ID Works Basic Software delivers a cohesive user experience that results in streamlined, efficient ID card production. The straightforward application enables flexible card, report, and production form design and the option of user-defined card sizes (CR50, CR80, and custom dimensions). Drag-and-drop functionality allows you to create all elements of an ID card with a real-time view of the card as it is being designed. The software application offers two unique modular components: the design mode enables you to build and edit your card layout, while the production mode creates custom data fields for inputting data and printing cards.

Instinctive design tools
The intuitive point-and-click navigation in ID Works 571897-002 simplifies card design and production with the built-in WISIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) display. You are able to visualize exactly what cards will look like once they are printed, saving you time and resources down the road. ID Works Basic also includes customizable sample templates to provide the initial structure and layout of the card, offering novice users the perfect head-start.

Comprehensive image management
Photos can be acquired from a file or from any Windows or TWAIN-compliant camera or scanner with ID Works Basic Software. The versatile image tool features photo crop and adjustments along with brightness and contrast tools to achieve optimal image quality. With the design elements in ID Works Basic, you can add text, logos, employee photos, barcodes, and more. Import images in a variety of formats, including .JPG, .PNG, .BMP, and others for increased flexibility in your card design. You can also modify the foreground or background colors with ease to reflect your company's branding.

Flexible printing capabilities
Entrust Datacard ID Works Basic Software enables you to print on one or both sides of your ID cards when using a dual-sided printer, enabling you to maximize the real estate on your credentials. The application leverages your card program's data more efficiently, allowing you to create and save both standard and custom reports.

Adaptable integration
The Entrust Datacard ID Works Basic Software application leverages the important features of Entrust Datacard® SD Series, SP Plus Series, and SR Series ID card printers, ensuring a high-quality, end-to-end solution for your organization's ID cards.

Simplified data administration
With resident Microsoft Access database drivers, ID Works Basic Software can create a project-based database with no limit to the number of database records created. You can connect through ODBC or OLEdb to connect to an existing Access database or a wide variety of other ODBC-compliant databases such as Microsoft SQL or Oracle.

Versatile security features
ID Works 571897-002 software includes application- or activity-level user security, complete with a login timeout feature, user-level project access, and a secure user audit trail, allowing you to implement additional layers of security to your card personalization application.

Quick installation and easy upgrades
It takes just moments to install this ID card software with the included DVD and dongle. Should your ID card printing needs grow over time, simply upgrade to ID Works Standard or Enterprise software editions for added features and functionality.
