Cloud-based badging is a state-of-the-art technology that radically changes the way your business prints identification cards. Express Badging, a company specializing in employee identification solutions and badge printing services, presents customers with a variety of options that provide traditional features and benefits of software-based identification program but without the technical issues, licensing and upgrades necessary when you download an identification program on your computer system.
