HID Global has recently updated Asure ID to version 7.5. The program can be downloaded online directly from HID, and is available as a free update for currently licensed users of Asure ID 2009, and Asure ID 7.x (users of Asure ID 5.x, please contact us for special upgrade pricing!).  For help installing the update and accessing new shortcuts and functions of Asure ID 7.5, HID has provided an updated user guide, which many users will find helpful. The update targets increased functionality and support for HID’s ever-expanding ecosystem.asure-id-7-solo Some highlights follow.

HID has updated the toolbar and application sidebar to more closely mirror recent Windows updates, making it more familiar for Windows users, as well as to accommodate the iClass SE Encoder capabilities. In addition, they have expanded database support, improved the configuration wizard for LDAP, enhanced template binding and Active Directory database connections, and expanded options for encoding timeout settings. These updates allow for increased customization and ease of use for database managers.

Data entry and management have become easier with Asure ID 7.5 too. Users can now save font sizes and font types for both table and record views, further increasing customization options. HID has introduced keystrokes to simplify data entry, including the capability to use the shift key to highlight multiple records. Asure ID 7.5 remembers the last crop location and size to make it easier to manipulate photographs and quickly produce photo IDs, extremely useful when the user’s image location is fixed. Additionally, a quick filter feature has been added to allow users to specify the order of entries. All of these updates aid in smoother, quicker data entry and management of databases and data records.

As HID expands their ecosystem to include embedded (within FARGO printers) and standalone iClass SE Encoders, they have updated Asure ID to allow for easier access control integration. Asure ID 7.5 enables users to utilize all of the features of the iClass SE Encoder, including the ability to register card data to compatible access control programs directly from the Asure ID, and to manage new card types.
