Secure Visitor Management System

4 Ways ID Scanning is Crucial to a Secure Visitor Management System

The Visitor Management Process May Occur Before the Visitor Sets Foot in the Building.

With ID scanning solutions such as IDScan.net’s VeriScan or VeriScan Online, facility personnel can create and send a visit request to a security director with an electronic request form. This form includes such information as the start of the visit, the host’s name, the visitor’s name and other pertinent information. Once the request is submitted, the security director can decide whether or not that individual is automatically approved for the visitor queue or requires further authorization. The scheduled visits can then be viewed by the appropriate security personnel. On the day of the visit, security staff can scan the visitor’s ID. In less than 1 second, the necessary information is captured and a self-expiring visitor badge can be produced. A text or email can also be sent to the appropriate personnel upon the scan of a visitor’s ID. This is the first step to a secure visitor management system.

Biometrics Can Be Used in Conjunction with ID Scanning.

IDScan.net’s latest mobile facial recognition solution ensures that an individual’s face matches the face on their ID. Be sure to ask for a demo at ASIS this year to see it in action! There are also other biometric add-ons that can be incorporated such as fingerprint scanning.

A Higher Level of Identity Validation Can Be Necessary.

If security personnel wants to add another layer of security to their visitor management system, they can utilize IDScan.net’s background check services. The results from these checks appear in just a few seconds.  If a company has their own subscription to a background service, IDScan.net’s solutions can also run a visitor’s ID against that list to return instantaneous results. In addition, some facilities have internal watch lists such as “Banned” visitors. These lists can be imported into ID scanning applications such as VeriScan Online so when their ID is scanned, it will pop up that they are Banned even if their ID has never been scanned at that particular site. This added layer of security helps keep facilities even more protected and ensures a secure visitor management system.

Easily Access Visitor Records.

IDScan.net’s visitor management applications make it easy for security personnel to access and share scanned data. Users can access visitor records from multiple sites remotely and search by name, location, date and time and more. They can easily share this information with others when needed with the click of a button. If your facility requires visitors to sign a visitor agreement or waiver, it will automatically be saved, stored and linked to that individual’s record. 

Security companies across the globe are using ID scanning to enhance security and streamline visitor management. If you are not taking advantage of the benefits of ID scanning, you are much more vulnerable to outside threats.

Hurricane Irma Recovery

FREE ID SCANNING TECH OFFERED TO HURRICANE IRMA RESPONDERS

IDScan.net is offering free technology to assist those involved in Hurricane Irma response efforts, including first responders, shelters, aid organizations, and volunteer groups.

The company’s VeriScan Online ID scanning application allows responders to easily collect, track and maintain information of displaced residents and response workers and volunteers.

The easy-to-use app allows designated users to scan government issued identification with the camera on a smart device, such as an iPhone. The information is collected in less than a second and stored in a secure online portal that can be accessed to inform loved ones that a person has been rescued, track displaced persons, grant or restrict access to certain areas, and manage response workers and volunteers.

IDScan.net offered this same technology for free during the historic flooding in Baton Rouge, La. that occurred in August 2016 as well as more recently during Hurricane Harvey.

The technology is easy to use, fast, works with virtually all smart devices, and does not rely on WiFi to scan, making it ideal for disaster response scenarios.

Hurricane Irma responders can use the app to search for information on people whose IDs they have scanned. Once connected to WiFi, they can access all of the information scanned by their organization using the VeriScan Online portal. They can determine if an individual has checked in at a shelter or other relief area. Multiple points of scanning can be connected so information can be shared between an organization’s different locations and between multiple organizations. Information can also be exported and shared, for example, with first responders.

The data is encrypted and stored on a secure server. Only individual response organizations using the app will have access to the data. The data will not be made public or shared by IDScan.net.

Those involved in response efforts may register for the app, VeriScan Online, for free here. In the comments section, enter “Hurricane Irma” to ensure full app functionality. Once registered, users will receive an email with further instructions.  

IDScan.net is also offering Hurricane Irma responders free technical support between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. CST Monday through Friday at 888-430-8936.

municipal refuse disposal site

4 Ways ID Scanning Boosts Profits at Municipal Refuse Disposal Sites

Municipalities, did you know that you can decrease tonnage & disposal costs through ID scanning? IDScan.net’s VeriScan Online application helps municipal disposal sites streamline refuse processing and save money through its automated data capture. See below to learn how ID scanning can help your disposal site!

Benefits:

  • Receive instant notification as to whether a resident is inside municipal limits upon the scan of their ID
  • Receive instant notification of the number of trips a resident has visited the disposal site for the rolling year
  • Collect 100% accurate resident information in less than 1 second
  • Process refuse drop off in as little as 3 seconds

How it Works:

When a resident scans their ID, IDScan.net’s mobile ID scanning system checks the ID against the municipality’s address list to determine whether the ID is a) within the municipal disposal limits and; b) how many times the resident has deposited refuse at the site for the rolling year.

The municipality’s personnel then receives a notification on the mobile scanning device with the corresponding information. If the resident is not within the limits, they are turned away or charged the appropriate fee for residents that live outside of the designated disposal limits. This process also makes it easy for municipalities to more strictly enforce any policies they may have regarding the number of times a resident is allowed to drop off refuse in a rolling year.

What People Are Saying:

Debie Mikel, Chattanooga’s Technical Information Manager, who was one of the first to implement the system states, “The VeriScan Online automated data capture is an enormous added value.” To see more of what Debi has to say, click here.

City Business

IDScan.net Featured in New Orleans City Business

Startup Closeup: IDScan.net

By: Lance Traweek, Managing Editor

Starting Point:

In today’s digitized world, businesses are looking to quickly and accurately identify customers for efficient transactions. IDScan.net, an ID verification business, was created to help them.

IDScan.net markets with a mobile solution, and counts IBM, Shell and Tesla as some of the customers using its technology.

Founded in 2003, IDScan.net was established without external capital. Its founders, Russian immigrants Denis Petrov and Andrey Stanovnov, began working out of their homes and later moved to LaunchPad. They enrolled at The Idea Village, and the New Orleans-based tech company is now based in the University of New Orleans Lakefront tech park.

Petrov said what started as a hobby developed into a business.entrepreneur

“We are very proud immigrants that came a very long way and developed a passion for entrepreneurship,” said Petrov, the firm’s CEO. “We are proud to be in the United States and help with the technological growth of this great country.”

The Pitch:

IDScan.net captures information from a form of identification. Clients use IDScan.net’s solutions to auto-populate forms, run background checks, track customer activity and manage rewards programs.

Processing the data only takes a couple of seconds and eliminates mistakes and frustrations associated with manual entry, Petrov said. Retailers, auto dealers and rental companies use IDScan.net’s solutions to instantly capture customer information and run credit checks. Places like casinos, theme parks, bars, and college campuses use it to track activity coming and going, to manage customer loyalty programs, pinpoint fake IDs and grant or restrict access. In addition, many businesses use it to generate customer analytics.

Revenue/Financing:

Petrov said the company has no debt and has not taken money from outside investors. Last year, it surpassed $2.5 million in revenue.

“The company has been growing by double digits year over year,” Petrov added.

Traction:

IDScan.net was the first to market with the mobile iteration of the technology. In 2009, it delivered the first mobile app approved by Apple that allows a North American driver’s license to be scanned. He said that allowed them to be set apart from similar products.

The company is looking toward the future when physical forms of identification may be replaced with technologies like facial recognition. Petrov said they have created a TSA-approved tool that enables flight crews to electronically verify and validate a passenger’s photo ID prior to boarding a private aircraft.

While they serve major brands, IDScan.net is not able to name many of its customers. They include some of the world’s largest retail chains, automotive dealers and financial institutions, Petrov said.

Marketing:

Petrov said they have various marketing techniques. They use trade shows to promote the technology.

“We continue to innovate that technology,” Petrov said.

Competition:

Petrov said there are a few publicly traded companies and startups that compete in the same space.

“We identify certain niches that we work in and already have a solid track record that speaks for itself,” he said.

He he wants to continue to create technology that helps businesses by streamlining processes.

3 Reasons Why ID Scanning is A Must for Nightclubs & Bars

Bar and club operators, if you are not taking advantage of the benefits of ID scanning, you are hurting your bottom line. ID scanning is not just about age verification and identifying fake IDs. Below are 3 reasons why ID scanning will increase your bottom line and boost your operations in the process.

Collect Valuable Demographic Information: With applications like VeriScan Online, bar & club managers & owners can gain valuable insight into their patrons. What zip code are the majority of the patrons coming from? What is the average age of a customer that comes in on Tuesdays at 7 pm? VeriScan Online’s reports section gives you the answers to these questions and more. This demographic data is easily accessible and is the difference between having an average bottom line versus a spectacular one.

Reduce Patron Wait Time: ID scanning automates the age verification process and makes it much easier to identify fake IDs. This takes a lot of burden off of your staff, and it will keep the lines moving, meaning more money that patrons will spend at your establishment. In addition, your bottom line is protected when you don’t receive fines due to your bouncer accidentally letting in  a minor after manually checking 100s or 1000s of IDs.

Easily Identify VIP & Banned Patrons: Do you want to receive a text or email notification of a VIP’s arrival or do you want your bouncer to be aware of when they arrive? Providing excellent service and paying extra attention to your VIP patrons will keep them coming back and will increase your bottom line. If your bouncer didn’t recognize the woman that spent $5,000 on bottle service or the guy that bought a whole round of  drinks for the bar after that winning touch down, your bottom line could be negatively impacted. Keep these kinds of clients happy as soon as they walk in the door. Conversely, if you want  your bouncer to be alerted that a banned patron is trying to enter, they will receive a “Banned” notification as soon as the ID is scanned.

IDScan.net’s VeriScan Online and other solutions will help your operations soar and increase your bottom line! Learn more about IDScan.net’s nightclub and bar solutions, here or call one of our specialists, at 888-430-8936!

Rental Management

A Property Manager’s Guide to Boosting Prospective Tenant Enrollments

United Property Management, a property management company with over 9,000 units in South Florida, needed a way to automate enrollment of prospective tenants and ensure that the information they collected was 100% accurate.  They chose IDScan.net to help them do this.

The Results:

One result was a transaction time that was 40 times faster. Completing a lease application went from taking 2 minutes to 3 seconds! The other result? The data they collected was 100% accurate.

Previously, United Property Management was manually enrolling tenants which was time consuming, and on top of that, they sometimes did not get the proper information due to misspellings or manual data error so the prospective tenant either fell through or they had to chase after them to get their proper information.

How it Works:

When United Property Management needs a prospective tenant to complete their lease application, they scan their ID with IDScan.net’s Ultimate Enrollment Solution. It inputs the tenant’s ID information directly into the lease and captures an image of the ID.

What People Are Saying:

Lisette Lantigua, United Property Management’s Analyst, states, “Prospective tenants and employees are relieved when they don’t have to worry about filling out lengthy paperwork. We simply scan their ID and collect the information we need in less than a second.” To read the whole case study, click here.

IDScan.net is in the process of helping other property management companies boost their prospective tenant enrollments and is ready to help others do the same!
