Capturetech and Entrust IIDaaS solution

This was our most recent installation at Satellite Healthcare. We were printing cards within 20 minutes of our arrival and it took just minutes to train operators on card production. (Our service tech) was amazed that we were in and out so quickly, without having to stay at the customer's site for hours to install and configure software.
