Plasco ID Joins HID Partner Program as a Provider for its Cloud-based Card Issuance Solutions

Plasco ID, the world’s largest integrator of identification solutions, announced it has been chosen as a trusted provider of HID® FARGO® Connect™, the cloud-based card personalization and issuance solution by HID Global that untethers printers from dedicated computers and eliminates the need for locally installed ID management software or ID card printer drivers. Now, previously “isolated” card printers are transformed into smart edge devices, bringing enhanced flexibility and productivity to end-user customers.

Available through select partners, the HID FARGO Connect solution delivers centralized visibility and management of all HID FARGO Connect printers. Customers benefit from the industry’s first cloud-based solution that simplifies and streamlines the issuance of ID cards and credentials to address their most challenging business needs. Further, a specialized dashboard provides a single view to enterprise-wide consumable usage and inventory levels, while also offering instant feedback on any technical issues that may arise. The dashboard drives extended customer support which in turn provides bottom line ROI to Plasco ID customers.

“HID Global and Plasco ID have a shared vision for improving a customer’s current system challenges when it comes to card issuance and personalization,” said David O’Driscoll, Sr. Director of Strategic Initiatives, HID Secure Issuance. Plasco ID is an ideal partner for delivering HID FARGO Connect to customers due to their reputation and success in the marketplace. Over the years, Plasco ID has proven time and again to be a reliable, cutting-edge technology partner, providing secure solutions that ultimately add value for the end user.”
Innovation is a core characteristic of the Plasco ID brand, woven into its mission to provide best in class solutions and support to its customers. To that end, it is thrilled to share opportunities like the one afforded through the HID FARGO Connect solution with its customers.

“We are excited to be partnering with industry leader HID and their HID FARGO Connect solution. Our enterprise customers look to us as their solution provider for connected solutions that fit their global strategy and management requirements across the enterprise,” stated Bob Fidler, Senior Vice President of Sales for Plasco ID. “We look forward to helping our customers meet these requirements with HID FARGO Connect.”
