Professional ID cards are issued by a licensing or certification authority to offer portable authenticity to the license holder. Professional ID cards are used so professionals can readily display certifications, licenses, badges, and other professional credentials. With professional ID cards, licensed professionals can quickly and easily identify themselves to carry out their professional duties in their day-to-day routines or in the event of an emergency.

What are the advantages of issuing and using digital professional ID cards?

Licensing Authorities Can Issue and Manage ID Cards Remotely:

Licensing and certification authorities can issue digital ID cards to professionals via email. With our ID Management System, administrators can email ID cards individually or in bulk. Then, professionals can easily install their ID cards onto their mobile devices using the Professional ID app. This eliminates the need for individuals to apply in-person, or wait for the ID card to be shipped in the mail. Additionally, it saves authorities any printing and shipping costs to issue and mail out ID cards. Furthermore, our digital ID cards can be managed entirely online. Cards can be renewed, deactivated, archived, or deleted through our ID Management System. Our card issuance process provides a safe, contactless, and convenient way for professionals to receive and store their ID cards.

Licensing Authorities Can Update Expiration Dates Online:

The expiration on a professional ID card typically coincides with the expiration of the license or certification. With physical ID cards, when an individual renews his registration, he needs to reapply for a new, updated ID card. Once his application is approved, his licensing authority would need to print and ship out a new physical ID card. With our digital ID Management System, however, licensing authorities can easily update card expiration dates online upon receiving renewal applications. This eliminates the process of recreating and shipping out physical cards since administrators can update those dates in the ID Management System with ease. Also, our push notifications feature can alert individuals of any upcoming expiration or update.

ID Cards Can Be Deactivated At Any Time By Administrators:

Administrators of the ID Management System can deactivate cards at any time. When a card is deactivated, it removes the digital ID card from the app. This feature is particularly beneficial when a worker’s license or certificate is suspended or revoked. If an individual regains his license or certificate credentials, administrators in the ID Management System can simply reactivate his ID card, and the card will reappear in the user’s app.

With the Professional ID app, issuing and managing digital ID cards has never been easier!
