Cost and time savings: Deployment required a low capital investment, and the system was easy to set up and use with minimal operator training.

Simplified attendance management: With PlascoTrac, School officials can scan late-arriving students' ID cards and automatically print a tardy pass, cutting processing time by 50-60 percent.
'We are very pleased with DPS' success with this card issuance solution,' said
