We are printing certificates and diplomas in bond paper and we found some fraud copy of our certificates. The only feature we have for security is an embossed stamp in GPA, also we have printed 3 millions of blank certificate and printing over it using a crystal report format.
How are we verifying certificates in our existing system?
Can not verify from everywhere, because our main database is located only in center office and we are we have to verify 150+ certificates one by one everyday. Also 90% of the records are in file archives not in any database.
What we want? To prevent fraud copy of certificates, We have decided to use barcodes but still we need to locate our database everywhere and we can't do this now.
I have other options:
- Mobile SMS verification
- UV Ink
Since its bond paper, what feature can I implement on the paper to at least prevent it from duplicate (Not including the SMS verification because we can't afford it at the moment).
