IDScan.net Donates Software to Toys for Tots During Holiday Season

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) December 05, 2017

IDScan.net, the leading provider of ID scanning solutions, has donated their VeriScan software to a Toys for Tots program in Florida for the holiday season. For 70 years, Toys for Tots, a Marine Corps Reserves and Marine Corps Leagues non-profit program, has provided needy children with toys for Christmas.

“We are pleased to offer our solutions to charities who are doing meaningful work in their communities, like Toys for Tots,” said Denis Petrov, the CEO of IDScan.net. “The same ease of use and sophisticated features that our corporate and governmental clients enjoy are valuable to non-profit organizations as well. We’re happy that we can play a small role in bringing smiles to the faces of children in need this holiday season.”

The donated technology is IDScan.net’s visitor management software, VeriScan, which validates ID cards, capturing the information and auto-populating it into a database. This function streamlines operations and quickly and easily captures important information in one location. VeriScan also allows for the creation of reports and logs, which is useful for organizations like Toys for Tots.

“We are so thankful to IDScan.net for their donation,” said Elizabeth Cedeno of Toys for Tots in Brevard County, Florida. “Their technology will allow us to have a more concise, organized list of families, making our jobs easier and cutting down on human error.”

Cedeno said before they had IDScan.net’s technology, Toys for Tots wrote parents’ information by hand, entering it into a computer database afterwards. Now, the ID scanning capability has allowed them to scan the driver’s licenses of parents and quickly enter their information into a database, permitting them to process over 300 parents alone on the first day of use. Cedeno says using the software allows Toys for Tots to quickly search for a parent’s name when they package toys for children.

Last year, Toys for Tots processed over 2,000 families, about 10,000 children, and over 40,000 toys in Brevard County alone.

“We hope to be as fortunate this year as we were last year,” said Cedeno. “Our Marine Corps League, Detachment 918, based in Barefoot Bay, has been at this for over 22 years, and it is so important that we’re able to provide a little comfort and joy to the children in Brevard County during the holidays.”

IDScan.net regularly donates its ID scanning solutions to worthy causes. Recently, in the after-math of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, IDScan.net offered their solution for free to those involved in the response efforts, including first responders, shelters, aid organizations, and volunteer groups.

By: Peter Ricchiuti

Excerpt from NPR:

Before you get on a plane, you go through a number of layers of security. The airline and the TSA both check to make sure you are who your ID claims you are.

One of the methods the TSA uses is a version of a security check system that’s also used by IBM, Shell, and some of the world’s largest retailers when you apply for a store card.

The technology for these security checks is provided by a company called IDScan.net.   NPR

Believe it or not, IDScan.net is a New Orleans company. IDScan.net’s Co-founder and CEO Denis Petrov joins Peter on this edition of Out to Lunch.

If you listen to this show regularly, you might have gotten so used to hearing about innovative entrepreneurs with successful businesses in New Orleans that you are no longer surprised by innovation or success. If you have gotten so used to sensational achievement that it’s going to take something pretty amazing to impress you, this conversation is for you.

Mobile ID Validation

IDScan.net Launches Mobile ID Validation Solution for Financial Institutions

IDScan.net’s instant mobile ID validation solution captures data from government-issued IDs, preventing fraud, accelerating customer onboarding, and meeting KYC requirements.

Financial institutions now have a high tech, easy-to-use tool for preventing fraud while improving customer experience. The new mobile ID validation solution, launched today by IDScan.net, allows banks and other financial institutions to onboard and validate the IDs of new customers within seconds and with 100 percent accuracy. The solution seamlessly integrates into a financial institution’s native app or mobile website to facilitate and enhance any type of customer onboarding process.

Using a smart device, users simply scan the front and back of any government issued ID, then IDScan.net’s proprietary algorithm compares the data on the two sides and runs multiple checks. Within seconds, the solution validates the ID and auto-populates the financial institution’s database with information from the ID.

IDScan.net’s optional facial recognition technology provides an added layer of identity verification. The add-on feature allows prospective clients to ‘take a selfie,’ and the app compares the selfie to the image on the ID.

“Now, for example, a bank employee or a prospective customer can use their smartphone to scan an ID and automatically complete a credit card application. The possibilities are endless,” said Denis Petrov, the CEO of IDScan.net, which was the first to market with mobile ID scanning capabilities nearly a decade ago. “The process for onboarding new customers has been inefficient and riddled with opportunities for fraud and error. Our solution accelerates the process, eliminates problems associated with manual data entry, and prevents fraud.”

This new solution, offered by IDScan.net, has the most robust parsing engine on the market and is completely customizable to meet a financial institution’s needs. Off-the-shelf, the solution provides a high level of ID validation that meets compliance regulations, such as KYC requirements. Custom features and checks, such as identity validation and watchlist screening, can be added.

A demo of the new solution will be featured during Money 20/20 in Las Vegas on Oct. 22-25 at IDScan.net’s booth K1.

Secure Visitor Management System

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

A Secure 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.
