  • Digital Cards

    Create Digital IDs as a complement to physical cards for maximum flexibility and convenience. Digital IDs are eco-friendly and can be quickly and securely issued to a mobile device in 3 easy steps. The Zebra Digital ID mobile app offers additional convenience and security for cardholders and allows data changes to be pushed immediately to the device.

  • Advanced Data Management

    Digital IDs and physical cards can be created with virtually any existing enterprise data, including text, graphics, photos and other information from virtually any data source – from backend databases to spreadsheets. Easily create Digital IDs at the same time as a physical card, or as a standalone offering.

  • Advanced Encoding Support

    With support for UHF and MIFARE/DESFire family of contactless cards, you can choose the encoding option that matches the application requirements and level of security your cards require. We offer all the encoding options you need.
