About Us

Formed in March, 2002, the principals of idXtra have in excess of 25 years experience within the ID card, cashless payment and access control industry. We specialise in the supply of identification, monitoring and payment solutions and all associated consumables and accessories.

Our aim is to provide the most advanced and cost effective solutions to each of our customers needs. We specialise in the school & post-16 education sectors and also undertake local government and commercial projects. Our systems and services are designed to pay for themselves in a very short time.

We supply plastic card printers, access control & cashless payment systems as well as electronic registers. Our products are fully integrated and scalable - building blocks that you can add to again and again as your requirements change. An idXtra solution will enhance security for your staff, students and visitors, whilst providing 100% accurate management information.

We are experts in database integration. If your MIS or HR system facilitates a link to other systems via ODBC or OLE DB, we will prove to be your ideal partner. We have over ten years experience in the linking of mission critical MIS databases to our card systems. We can ensure that existing biographical data is utilised in real-time. This is particularly valuable in the Further or Higher Education environments. Student data is read automatically by our access control and card payment systems during the enrolment process. This means that students are given physical and logical access to the areas and facilities they need – the moment they receive their cards!

idXtra is an ISO9001 quality registered firm with Technical Partner status with Capita's UNIT-e and SIMS and Compass' ProSolution. We take our reputation and your business very seriously and we hope to be of assistance.

Card Bureau

Let our card bureau print all your card requirements in house to your specifications

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 and Photocopier Control Systems

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