Sheridan College reached out to IDenticard, a Zebra partner, for assistance in upgrading its card printers. When IDenticard demonstrated the Zebra ZXP Series 7 card printer to Sheridan, the college was impressed with the speed.
“We all noticed that the Zebra printer was much faster than our old printers,” Brown said. “It took less than a minute to print. That’s a lot of time-savings when you add it up.”
Zebra’s ZXP Series 7 card printers can process up to three jobs at the same time (encoding, printing and laminating simultaneously), delivering faster, higher-quality printing. When needed, the college also has the option to network Zebra printers so that designated employees anywhere on campus with the software can initiate printing to the printers.
Sheridan’s oneCARD includes a photo, the individual’s name, a barcode, expiration date, terms and conditions, and integrated proximity technology for access control.
When the fall term arrived, Sheridan set up printers at registration stations at three campuses. To help handle the high volume, the college rented several additional ZXP Series 7 printers from IDenticard.
“My staff told me what a difference the Zebra printers made in the lineup for fall registration,” Brown said. “Students were able to go through the line quickly because printers were so much faster, and weren’t getting jammed like the old ones. Students waited at least half an hour less than in previous semesters.”
