Databac has proven ID solutions especially designed for specifically for the retail sector, such as Loyalty solutions (for customer engagement), RFID tagging solutions (for product tracking and authentication) to ID solutions for staff (such as re-usable name badges and ID badges).

ID solutions – name ID badges and printed ID cards

Nowadays every customer-facing employee wears a name badge. From re-usable high quality name badges which can be worn with a pin or magnetic, to custom-made staff printed ID cards (credit-card sized badges) that can intergrate with existing access control or time & attendance systems.

Databac’s name badges help you to promote your company’s brand effectively and allow your clients to see who they are talking to.

We offer a complete bureau service so you can order whatever quantity of badges you need and we will send these to you within 48 hours. If you prefer to produce your own, we can provide everything you need for card personalisation. We offer complete ID badging systems “out-of-the-box” which include a suitable Desktop ID card printer, a colour ribbon, ID software and blank cards – plus full instructions. We offer installation, training and offer full technical support if you need it. Read more on our Bureau Service >

ID Cards can be worn with lanyards or badge reels pre-printed with your store logo to reinforce your corporate brand.


If you are looking for a loyalty system, we can provide you with a solution that allows you to implement your own reward schemes quickly and easily. With a desktop card printing / encoding station, you can issue loyalty and gift cards at the point of sale. You could even offer personalised printed ID cards using customers’ own photos.

For a truly interactive experience, a rewritable card system allows you to print personalised messages on customer cards each time they are presented, perhaps updating loyalty points or announcing special offers.

Access control, time recording and guard tour

Databac offers a wide range of easy-to-use systems for access control and time recording systems.  These range from using an RFID (which can be embedded in their ID badge) to the latest in biometric technology. We offer a range of terminals that can allow your staff to register their start and finish times and this date can then be exported for use in your payroll system.  The other thing we offer is called Guard Tour which makes sure your security staff regularly checks defined points within a shop or shopping centre to make sure that they are secure.  Our systems can link into CCTV and other building management systems.

Product tagging for authentication and tracking

We also supply tags and product labels for warehousing and inventory applications.

Our RFID tagging and label solutions can be used for brand authentication, whereby the product can be read and checked to make sure that it is the genuine article. In addition, products can be tracked and used for inventory control.
