3 Reasons ID Scanning is Crucial for Successful Dispensary Operation

ID scanning isn’t just for bars and nightclubs; dispensaries can benefit from it as well. It will streamline their operations and ensure that dispensaries are compliant with state and local law.

Tracking Amount of Marijuana Purchased Each Day

Certain states such as Oregon require that dispensaries cannot sell more than 7 grams of flower (on four immature plants) to an individual in a day. For this reason, dispensaries must have a way to track how much they are selling. This is where ID scanning can help. ID scanning applications such as VeriScan make it easy to note the amount of marijuana a customer has purchased and will time stamp this transaction when the ID is scanned. All of this information can easily be accessed and exported should law enforcement ever require it.

Passing Compliance Checks

While many states don’t require dispensaries to use an ID scanner, certain cities such as Aurora, CO require proof of age with an ID scanner. The first violation of selling to a minor can constitute a $3,500 fine or 5 days with a suspended license. A second offense can merit a 30 day license suspension where as a third offense of selling to a minor within a year time frame can cause a dispensary to lose their license. Whether a city requires you to use an ID scanner or not, it is worth it to prevent losing thousands of dollars, or worse, your business. On MarijuanaVenture.com, enforcement chief for the Liquor and Cannabis Control Board, Justin Nordhorn, states, “Door security staff read so many IDs during the course of their shift, they can fall prey to complacency.” The use of ID scanners eliminates the chance to be complacent.

ID scanners are also valuable when it comes to compliance checks with the State Liquor & Cannabis Board. ID scanning applications such as VeriScan or WizzForms will time stamp an ID scan and displays the age of the buyer should the board ever ask for proof that adequate effort was made to verify a buyer’s age.

Automating Restricted/Limited Access Visitor Processing

According to Rule M233 of Colorado’s Medical Code for dispensaries, those not licensed to be in certain areas of a dispensary are required to wear a badge which then must be submitted to the state. Visitors in a restricted access or limited access area are required to wear such badges. ID scanning solutions such as this one, can be paired with a simple badge printer such as the Dymo 450 to print badges upon the scan of the ID with the information required by the state.

Whether as a dispensary you want to streamline your customer processing or ensure compliance, ID scanning will make a positive impact on your bottom line.

New Orleans based tech company, IDScan.net has announced the release of a new machine-readable zone (MRZ) component to their application, VeriScan Online. This enhancement has also been released in the iOS Software Development Kit (SDK), for integration into any iOS app.

 (PRWEB) DECEMBER 06, 2016

New Orleans-based tech company, IDScan.net has announced the release of a new machine-readable zone (MRZ) component to their application, VeriScan Online. This enhancement has also been released in the iOS Software Development Kit (SDK), for integration into any iOS app. The MRZ scanning capability allows IDScan.net customers to scan the MRZ and auto-populate the individual’s data from their passport or country ID card directly into the digital form, with 100% accuracy.

The new component allows users to scan passports with VeriScan Online on mobile iOS devices. Users will be able to scan MRZ on Android mobile devices starting next month. Now businesses can scan the MRZ of any passport or identification card simply and easily, using the camera on any iOS device such as an iPhone or iPad.

The information embedded within the MRZ on passports includes data such as country code, document number, name, country of origin, date of birth and expiration dates. With particular uses for government and security based organizations, the data can be parsed rapidly with 100% accuracy.

“The speed and accuracy are key features of the ID scanning technology,” says Denis Petrov, CEO of IDScan.net, “which our mobile app customers have been requesting for quite some time. This new release allows us to provide a global mobile solution rather than just North America and other select countries.

“Data from the machine-readable zone on passports can be parsed within one second of scanning. We’ve worked with 3M, as well as many other global organizations, with exposure to a multitude of MRZ documents to enable us to build the most robust parsing engine available on the market today,” Mr. Petrov said.

The software development kit can read all MRZ documents, including all passports, visas, green cards and most country IDs and drivers’ licenses.

Keeping Your Casino Operations at the Top of Their Game:

Overview:

Running a casino takes more than having enough poker chips and slot machines. As a casino operator, if you want your business to grow, you have a responsibility to keep patrons happy and to ensure compliance when it comes to preventing underage or banned patrons from entry. Your casino’s bottom line will suffer if you are fined or unable to provide a pleasant experience to your customers. In this article, casino operators will learn how ID scanning will keep their operations at the top of their game.

What You Need to Know:

  1. Loyalty Enrollment: ID scanning brings automation to loyalty enrollment. With proper hardware such as 3M’s AT9000 & autofill software such as IDScan.net’s WizzForms, you will have loyalty customers enrolled in less than 1 second! How it works: When your staff scans the patron’s ID, the ID scanning solution inputs its information directly into your loyalty enrollment database. What this does for your casino: The automated loyalty enrollment provides a better customer experience as they spend less time waiting and more time playing. In addition, you receive 100% accurate data and eliminate all typos and keystroke errors. Did we mention IDScan.net’s solutions are IGT certified and compatible with ALL casino platforms? If you have not yet automated your loyalty enrollment, then you are hurting your bottom line.
  2. Automated Data Collection: Whether your casino’s marketing department wants to collect information for a specific event or generally enhance their marketing efforts, it is vital that they have proper data. This data will inform your marketing efforts. With applications such as VeriScan Online, you will be able to run various demographic reports such as zip code reports to see which areas your patrons are coming from and which areas require more targeted marketing efforts.
  3.  Security: As the need for heightened security increases, so should your casino’s security efforts. Scanning an ID with software such as VeriScan will reduce the use of fake IDs. VeriScan compares the barcode formatting of the ID with that of the government-issued formatting, and if there is a discrepancy, security personnel will receive an error notification. While no software can detect 100% of fake IDs, VeriScan will help reduce their use. For higher level identity vetting, IDScan.net has the ability to tie the ID into various government databases including OFAC or others that provide various forms of authentication such as address identity authentication. Having patron information on file is crucial if a guest were to commit a crime while at the casino or within a close time frame of visiting one. VeriScan allows you to filter visitor logs by date and time. It also gives casino operators the ability to search for a person by their name or ID number. These logs can easily be exported and shared with law enforcement. In addition to ID authentication, VeriScan has the ability to group patrons. If someone who has been banned tries to return to the casino, once their ID is scanned, casino security staff will receive a “Banned” notification.
  4. Reduced Fraud: With the use of image capture scanners and a computer camera, casino operators can reduce fraud. The VeriScan software will automatically capture an image of a casino patron and tie it to the scanned ID which is time stamped. The ID scanning hardware can also capture an image of the ID. This reduces fraud if a patron ever claims that they were not in the casino when they in fact were.
  5. Age Verification: ID scanning is necessary when it comes to age verification. People are prone to error and manually verifying age is time consuming. VeriScan displays the visitor’s age on the screen, and if the patron is of age, a green box will be displayed around the age. Conversely, if the patron is underage, red will surround the age number displayed. If the ID is expired, VeriScan will also issue a notification. This helps increase efficiency and reduces fines associated with underage patrons.
