The Workforce Investment Board of Santa Cruz’s staff now have an even more enhanced tool at their disposal to assist them in tracking one-stop jobseeker foot traffic. The brand new Access TMC X1 client-tracking magnetic card reader was officially launched in Santa Cruz, California, and successfully linked to the Santa Cruz Virtual Career Center ( www.santacruzvcc.com ) on January 11, 2013. Santa Cruz County is the first one-stop to debut the new innovative X1offered to the workforce community by Geographic Solutions. Geographic Solutions’ VOScan client-tracking module has added the new X1 technology to the already existing scan card terminal options for Santa Cruz’s Virtual Career Center. The X1’s cutting-edge functionality enables Santa Cruz to use the scan card terminals to track services provided by their career centers in real-time.X1 eliminates the need for a polling application, sending the data to a centralized database in real time. Unlike previous scan card machines, the X1 will display the first and last name of the person who scans their card; effectively pulling the information from the Santa Cruz Virtual Career Center database. The system can also be set up to verify that the card number is in fact stored in the database; any card numbers that are not stored, will be rejected; thus eliminating the chance that a service was not captured and accounted for. Additionally, staff members can also examine users’ workshop attendance, utilized resources, and additional services offered by the one-stop center. The system can create sophisticated reports to evaluate system performance, efficiency, and effectiveness. Staff can also create customized Ad Hoc reports for individuals, employers, job orders, activities, system usage, and even jobseeker surveys. The system’s multi-functional interface lets staff create or delete events and new services ‘on-the-fly’.
