Frequently Asked Questions 

Do I need to print only or encode?

If you are only looking to print then choose between Go, Premium or Professional. If you need additional encoding, you’ll need either business or Enterprise.

Do I need to connect to a Database?

Check the database connectivity you need and choose between Premium (basic connectivity supported) or Professional, Business or Enterprise (advanced connectivity).

Do I need multiple licences on a company network?

Choose between Business or Enterprise versions. All other versions are single-user licences only. However, it is easy to share common design templates by using a USB stick, as an example, between single-user licence applications.

How many staff records and card designs do I need?

CardExchange Go allows up to 200 records and 5 card designs at any one time, and the other packages are unlimited.
