Fully Integrated Solutions

For all your identification and access control needs

idXtra has helped educational establishments across the UK enhance security for staff, students and visitors. With a particular expertise in integration, learner attendance tracking, and pushing data dynamically to and from MIS, the solutions have been proven to improve student retention, by up to 5% over a two year period.

Our systems are scalable, building blocks that you can add to time and time again. idXtra is an ISO 9001 quality accredited company, with Technical Partner status with Capita, Compass’ ProSolution, CMIS and other leading MIS suppliers.

Access Control

Combining smart cards or biometric technology with networked access control allows you complete control and peace of mind that areas of sensitivity or risk are secure. Our wireless locking systems ensure that buildings, rooms and the valuable equipment contained within, remain locked until such time an authorized individual wishes to gain access using their ID card.

Smart Card Solutions

Improve safeguarding at your school by installing access control systems in and around school buildings. A staff, student and visitor identity lanyard and card policy ensures everyone on site and in classrooms is authorized to be there, easy to identify and fully accounted for.

e-Registration and Attendance Monitoring

Our wireless locking systems ensure that buildings, rooms and the valuable equipment contained within, remain secure until such time an authorized individual wishes to gain access, or a timetabled lesson indicates the room should become accessible.

Cashless Systems

Take payments from staff and students for goods and services without the need for cash. Our systems use either smart card or biometric technology to make payments quick and easy, reducing waiting times and the risk of theft or loss.

Printer & Copier Control

Equipment on site such as photocopiers and printers are regularly used by staff and students. Wasted printing and copying results in excessive replacement of paper, toner, ink and other consumables. Our cashless system cards allow for greater control and restrictions and encourage everyone to be less wasteful and more environmentally friendly.

Cashless Catering

No more forgotten dinner money and canteen queues with our cashless catering systems. Your choice of smart card or biometric technology enables staff, students or their parents to load money on to the cashless catering system online. Payments are quick and secure and parents can monitor menus, food choices and total spending.
