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.

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.

fraud prevention

Fraudsters are Everywhere, What Can You do?

March was fraud awareness month, but fraud occurs every month of the year. For this reason, I wanted to arm businesses with important statistics about fraud and what actions they can take to stop it. Several industries can see a considerable decrease in fraud by utilizing a “multi-layered” approach. This includes solutions which tier identity verification and identity authentication. Below are some of the ways ID scanning does this:

  • ID Verification: Incorporate ID scanning solutions that ensure that the ID is a valid, government issued ID with correct formatting of barcode features, ID number, etc.
  • ID Validation: Utilize higher level vetting to validate the identity of the individual. This includes running the ID against government databases such as OFAC and many others.
  • ID Authentication: Authenticate the ID with a check ID for proper security features, holograms, etc. to ensure that the ID is not a fake

Did you know?

88.3% of identity fraud is committed using a fake ID. This number is alarmingly high especially when you consider that over the past six years, fraudsters have stolen $112 billion. This comes down to $35,600 stolen per minute. (AmericanBanker.com)

$2.40 is the amount every dollar of fraud cost merchants in 2016, this is up from $2.23 in 2015. (LexisNexis)

Fraud’s percentage of revenues rose from 1.32 percent to 1.47% in 2016. This revenue is extremely high for retailers and continues to be a growing issue for the retail industry.  (LexisNexis)

These statistics are unnerving to say the least. But, as you read, IDScan.net can help. We provide complete solutions with both hardware and software that help users ensure that an ID is properly verified, validated and authenticated.
