WCTV, Tallahassee Florida, news report features ScholarChip secure campus and student safety implementation at Hamilton High School. Hamilton currently uses cafeteria POS, door access, bus attendance tracking and student other accountability systems from ScholarChip.
Opening in fall of 2017, the new elementary school in Hamilton will serve approximately 1000 students and feature ScholarChip access control on all exterior and classroom doors.
Bridgeway Solutions, Inc., a founding member of ARMET Group, is assisting in the sale and integration of the ScholarChip systems at Hamilton High School and at the new Hamilton Elementary.

The DuraSecure ribbon is now available for Zebra's ZXP Series 3 card printers. DuraSecure is a secure, durable and low-cost alternative to the standard YMCK0 ribbons that can greatly improve security and card life.
Two full overlay panels allow custom printing of your logo, emblem or text on the first overlay panel while the second seals the image in another of protection.
In essence, the DuraSecure ribbon gives users a layer to protect the overall image and a layer to carry a design element that is nearly impossible to duplicate thus helping to prevent fraud.
The ZXP Series 3 is a cost-effective and user-friendly ID card printer that produces crisp, photo quality images. Using the YMCK00 DuraSecure ribbon, the ZXP Series 3 creates ID cards with the enhanced security and durability—in one printing cycle instead of two—and without cost of lamination or overlay varnish.
Almost every card program can appreciate the increased security and durability afforded by the ZXP Series 3 and DuraSecure ribbons.
