Drag-and-Drop Functionality

Designing cards with CloudBadging couldn't be easier. Start with one of our preconfigured templates or design your own unique, one-of-a-kind card completely from scratch with simple drag-and-drop tools. To add a field to your card, just choose the field type (text, barcode, image, etc.) and drag it to the desired location on your badge. Use the snap-to-grid feature, object alignment, and arrangement tools for perfect organization of all your badge elements.


Exclusive Cloning Tool

No other ID software on the market today offers CloudBadging’s exclusive cloning technology. This forward-thinking feature lets you duplicate the content from the front of your card to the back side with the single click of a button. Not only does this replicate all the content on the front of your card with 100% accuracy, it also saves time. Repeating the same design and data on both sides of your cards ensures it’s visible regardless of how the card is turned.


Wide Barcode Selection

Whether your application requirements call for 1D (linear) or 2D barcodes, CloudBadging features the industry’s most popular formats, including:

  • Code 39 & Code 128
  • UPC-A & UPC-E
  • Codabar
  • Code 11
  • QR Code
  • Datamatrix
  • PDF-417

Extensive Photo Support

With robust capabilities for adding and formatting images for your card designs, CloudBadging makes creating professional credentials simple. Design cards with static images (like a logo or a background), dynamic images that change with every badge (like an employee photo), or both! Images can be imported or uploaded in seconds or even taken on-demand with a webcam or smartphone/tablet total flexibility.

Unlimited Variable Fields

CloudBadging is extremely flexible when importing unique data for your credential program. There's no limit to the number of data fields that can be created or used, and data can be added one element at a time or in batches using our simple .csv import. Fields can consist of text, numbers, dates, and images. In addition, text fields can be combined on cards to make compound fields (e.g., combining a first name field with a last name field to create a single name field on the card).

Real-time Previews with Real Data

Once you have added records to your CloudBadging account you can preview your card designs with real examples. The card preview function will pull example data from your records when you preview you cards and any programmed rules will be applied. You can even cycle through records should you need to test a specific rule or function, all right from the card design window. (palette on the left side, card design area on the right)


Integrated Automation

Each card object can be controlled by logic and rules to streamline the entire badge creation process. For example, it's very common for schools to create ID badges with unique identifiers based on grade level. With CloudBadging logic, it's remarkably easy to change the logo, background color, or any object-based data field to automatically assign the correct badge color for the individual student.


Centralized User Management

From one location to multiple locations across an entire network, CloudBadging allows you to manage all your users simultaneously with a single license. In addition, you can easily create groups, assign permissions, and define capabilities for both individuals and groups. As a result, the need for multiple user licenses is eliminated, savings saving time, money, and resources while maximizing the return on your investment.
