Nation Wide Crackdown on Underage Drinking

With the arrival of summer, states across the nation are taking precautionary measures to crackdown on underage drinking. One of several examples can be seen in Washington’s youth access compliance check program.

The Washington State Liquor Board has initiated a program to help prevent minors from drinking. They have selected a particularly interesting approach through employing the assistance of 18-21 year olds. The WSLCB refers to this demographic assisting them as “IA”s- Investigative Aides. They plant the IA’s throughout local bars to see how the bartender or bouncers respond to their  ID’s.

While this approach lauds creativity, why not use an ID scanner and parsing system that is 100% fool proof? IDScan.net has the most up to date technology in ID scanning. Our software reads ID’s from all 50 states as well as Canada and various Mexican forms of identification. Our software is user friendly and provides data that is 100% accurate. This way, you are always in compliance with federal and state laws and do not have to dedicate manpower that would be more beneficial elsewhere. You will never have to pay a compliance fine again!  Due to our 10+ years of experience, we know every issuers format and timeframe so you never have to worry about whether an ID is no longer valid. The proprietary algorithm we have built in our software notifies you as to whether the ID is authentic. We recommend checking out our software VeriScan Mobile https://idscan.net/wp/solutions/mobile/veriscan-mobile/.

Do your civic duty this summer and help protect America’s youth. Check out IDScan.net’s complete solutions at http://store.idscan.net/Complete-Solutions_c_11.html.

Wizzforms with Remote Access

WizzForms Now Supports Remote Desktop Access

IDScan.net is proud to announce that WizzForms now supports remote desktop functionality.   Our customers asked for the capability to use WizzForms with their own server-based applications and through Windows remote desktop this is now possible.  This has many benefits for data capture projects in that it allows you to centralize information capture from multiple locations into one singular database.  Please note that this feature still requires a license key for each scanner.

WizzForms is a data capture and auto-population software that easily integrates into any existing application. WizzForms allows you to scan any state-issued ID (driver’s license, military ID, gun permit, etc.) and auto-populate the information from the ID into a digital form. WizzForms is compatible with any Windows computer and can be integrated into any type of application including POS systems, visitor management solutions, text-entry programs (MS Excel, Google Docs), or web-based applications. Setup is simple and intuitive and takes only 3-5 minutes with no programming skills required. If used with our IDWare TT 800 Scanner or ESeek 280, WizzForms will also allow you to capture the image of the front and back of an ID.  It also supports the entry of custom text, allowing it to be of use in any data capture solution that reads information from the back of a driver’s license or other federal IDs.

If you need assistance making the leap to remote desktop, don’t hesitate to call or email us for guidance and support.

Thanks and have a good one.

3M’s New CR5400 ID Imager Provides Protection Against Fake IDs

The ideal ID scanning solution has always been a four part process.  First, the ID is physically scanned.  The actual raw capture of the 2D barcode, smart-chip, or magnetic stripe is essential to the automation and actual validation of any ID.  Secondly this raw data must be parsed.  Unparsed, unformatted raw data is worthless to the business-owner.  This parsing algorithm must be tailor-made to fit the ID on a state by state basis.  Each state also constantly reformats their IDs, in an attempt to foil the manufacture of fakes and to keep up with new technology provided by the AAMVA.   At IDScan.net, we have the most up-to-date parsing engine and work diligently to stay one step ahead of the forgers.  Thirdly, the data should be collected.  With our program VeriScan Online we pioneered cloud-based ID storage and were the first company to engineer mobile ID verification for the iOS.  Lastly, this data should be presented for analysis.  With VeriScan Online, custom reports and analytics are generated with a mouseclick.

This process is our bread and butter.  That’s why it’s so exciting to announce our newest step with 3M’s CR5400 ID scanner/imager.   The CR5400 represents the newest and most advanced weapon in our arsenal to fight ID fakes and forgers.  This device when paired with our VeriScan software suite will detect any counterfeits, alterations, simulations and substitutions in the ID forging process.

Previously the alternative for checking against fakes and frauds was DMV database integration.  This process is often time consuming and extremely costly, and only suitable for the most thorough visitor management and access control solutions.  This new and affordable device with its spectrum of scanning compatibility checks and verifies licenses’ holograms with UV and Infrared light, ensuring that every inch of the ID meets state regulation and format.  This simplifies the entire verification process to one in-house localized scan, so IDs can be processed quickly and inexpensively.

Additionally, the scanner captures crisp high resolution images of both the front and back of the ID, making it ideal for chargeback prevention as well as ID verification.

Over the following weeks we will be releasing compatible versions of our entire software suite.  Please stay tuned as we work to bring you the most secure and efficient ID scanning solutions at the lowest price possible.  Let us know if you have any additional questions not answered above.

REAL ID phase 3 to be implemented. Are you compliant?

In 2004, the 9/11 Commission report found that “For terrorists, travel documents are as important as weapons.”  In response to these findings the REAL ID Act was ratified in 2005 to make driver’s licenses more difficult to forge, in an attempt to secure our boarders.  Met with bipartisan support, the act was ratified quickly.

However, a small group of states including Oklahoma, Arizona, Maine, and Louisiana opposed the bill, considering it “unnecessary federal oversight” and a waste of funds.

Soon residents in non-compliant states will face further ramifications from the REAL ID act as phase 3 restrictions are about to take effect.  Starting in January 2015, cardholders from the aforementioned states will be required to provide secondary forms of photo ID at federal buildings such as courthouses and city council chambers.

Travelers with said IDs may need a second form of Identification to board commercial airlines starting in 2016, unless more secure IDs are created and deployed.
