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.

Automating dumping at waste refuse sites

Municipalities, Stop Wasting Your Time with Waste!

Over the course of the last year IDScan.net has worked with the City of Chattanooga to develop a technology that would help them automate dumping at their three refuse disposal sites.

The Results:

One result was a transaction time that was 20 times faster than the previous one! What used to take a minute to process now takes 3 seconds. The other result? They decreased the tonnage and disposal cost for each center.

How it Works:

When a resident scans their ID, IDScan.net’s mobile ID scanning system checks the ID against the Chattanooga database to determine whether the ID is a) within the City of Chattanooga Limits and; b) how many times the resident has deposited refuse at the center that year.

The City of Chattanooga’s personnel then receives a pop up on the mobile device with the corresponding information. If the resident is not within the limits, they are turned away. It has also helped Chattanooga more strictly enforce their policy to allow up to disposing 12 times per rolling year.

What People Are Saying:

Debie Mikel, Chattanooga’s Technical Information Manager states, “The VeriScan Online automated data capture is an enormous added value.” To read the whole case study, click here.

IDScan.net is in the process of helping other municipalities and is ready to help others that are ready to stop wasting time with waste!

IDScan.net Goes Global with Gaming

IDScan.net has a new global solution which will change the way the gaming industry operates. The Ultimate Global Solution automates loyalty enrollment and jackpot win entry by populating the information from the ID directly into the CMS. While IDScan.net has deployed this technology in casinos for over a decade, this solution is the first to allow casino operators to populate information from ANY country ID.

This is invaluable for the industry for a number of reasons. Casino personnel no longer have to waste time manually entering ID information and management can be assured that the information is 100% accurate.

Gaming personnel can run the ID against internal, national as well as international databases some of which include Self-Exclusion, OFAC and more. IDScan.net has worked with its customers and industry partners to develop a solution that would help slot floor staff increase security while enhancing their operations.
