A Credential Management System - Your Organisation Hack

CredShare Aug 23, 2022

Being organised can save you from a lot of stress, but it is a developed skill and one that can really save you from a lot of headaches and stress. When asked about job satisfaction, only 15% of workers worldwide claimed to be engaged at their jobs, while the vast majority are not happy. One of the biggest reasons for this is the scope of work, more specifically, admin work.

Cred management is definitely considered admin work and probably on the top of many people’s “what I don’t want to do” lists, but what if someone (or a very cool team of people and an awesome platform) can do it for you?


What Are Credentials?

What exactly are these “credentials” we keep talking about? Well, they’re basically any declaration (hopefully verified) of a person’s identity, status, qualification, or entitlement. If you are a citizen of this planet, you will have creds in some form. These creds can also be broken down into categories (bear with us as we list out the not-so-fun facts before we get to the oh-so-fun truths):

Titles and Identity Creds

Creds that identify who you are, what title you hold, or a specific group or grade you belong to all fall under this category.

Examples:

  • Birth certificates, ID cards, passports

Medical Credentials 🧑‍⚕️

These creds confirm medical status that gives you access to things like entry to venues, workplaces or even countries, clearance to perform certain jobs, or the right to access certain supports.

Examples:

  • Vaccination certificates or exemptions

Qualifications - Professional, Trade and Academic Creds 🧑‍🎓

These are credentials that prove the completion of education, capability, skills and knowledge in certain areas.

Examples:

  • Diplomas
  • Degrees

Licenses 💳

Licenses are necessary for operating machinery, vehicles and equipment.

Examples:

  • Driver’s license
  • Vehicle registration

Security Clearance 🆔

The phrases “That’s above my pay grade”, “That’s classified”, and “You don’t have clearance” will no longer be necessary if you have the proper security clearance. It ensures that the organisation or government body has top security and only allows entry and access to people with the right clearance.

Examples:

  • Keycards and Access Passes

Memberships

Are you in the club? A membership credential will confirm benefits or work rights you’re entitled to based on a group that has recognised you as a member. You might pay for, earn or be born with membership.

Examples:

  • Emergency & Military Service Creds

Diplomatic Credentials 📜

Diplomatic credentials are very official and internationally recognised. These are issued to representatives of a country such as diplomats and ambassadors and can take many forms.
