 (PRWEB) DECEMBER 06, 2016

New Orleans-based tech company, IDScan.net has announced the release of a new machine-readable zone (MRZ) component to their application, VeriScan Online. This enhancement has also been released in the iOS Software Development Kit (SDK), for integration into any iOS app. The MRZ scanning capability allows IDScan.net customers to scan the MRZ and auto-populate the individual’s data from their passport or country ID card directly into the digital form, with 100% accuracy.

The new component allows users to scan passports with VeriScan Online on mobile iOS devices. Users will be able to scan MRZ on Android mobile devices starting next month. Now businesses can scan the MRZ of any passport or identification card simply and easily, using the camera on any iOS device such as an iPhone or iPad.

The information embedded within the MRZ on passports includes data such as country code, document number, name, country of origin, date of birth and expiration dates. With particular uses for government and security based organizations, the data can be parsed rapidly with 100% accuracy.

“The speed and accuracy are key features of the ID scanning technology,” says Denis Petrov, CEO of IDScan.net, “which our mobile app customers have been requesting for quite some time. This new release allows us to provide a global mobile solution rather than just North America and other select countries.

“Data from the machine-readable zone on passports can be parsed within one second of scanning. We’ve worked with 3M, as well as many other global organizations, with exposure to a multitude of MRZ documents to enable us to build the most robust parsing engine available on the market today,” Mr. Petrov said.

The software development kit can read all MRZ documents, including all passports, visas, green cards and most country IDs and drivers’ licenses.

Let’s Go Black: ID Verification API Innovation at HBCU Hackathon

TechConneXt 2016 – IDScan.net inks an API hackathon partnership with Black Enterprise.

Driving Innovation is a resounding theme of companies large and small in various verticals around the globe. Fall 2016, New Orleans based software company — IDScan.net — decided to inspire millennial college students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to innovate by partnering with Black Enterprise as the exclusive Persona Verification Dev Box Partner of the BE Smart Hackathon sponsored by Toyota.

October 9th through 11th, 40 students from 10 HBCUs arrived at the Black Enterprise TechConneXt Summit in Burlingame, CA (Silicon Valley) eager to receive their IDScan.net Web Service API keys to engulf their days and nights with developing and deploying a Minimum Value Product (MVP) based on this year’s theme, In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI).

Andrey Stanovnov, CTO of IDScan.net, stated, “IDScan.net is thrilled to provide their technology in the Driving Innovation Hackathon as it fosters growth and innovation in participants that will soon be our future leaders.”

Participating schools included Alabama A&M University, Florida A&M University, Hampton University, Howard University, Johnson C. Smith University, Morehouse College, Morgan State University, North Carolina A&T State University, Southern University and A&M College, and Tuskegee University.

Each school was tasked to innovate an iOS app within the Ionic Cloud framework and utilized required APIs provided, which included IDScan.net’s Web Service API. To build the verification component of the app, hackers used IDScan.net’s ID scanning Web Services API. One of the goals of the development was to provide a verification in the app that went beyond just entering a username and password. Participants utilized the ID scanning API to verify the identity of the driver by scanning their ID.

Nathaniel J., Associate Tech Editor-Silicon Valley of Black Enterprise and Founder & Chief Digital Architect of VUEmega Technologies, states, “ID verification should not be an afterthought when creating various app innovations for end-users today. One of IDScan.net’s goals is to build a trusted community of users that are verified. Because of this, IDScan.net is the best solution not only for this year’s hackathon but also for companies that want to ensure a trusted community of users.”

This year’s winner was Aggie++ from North Carolina A&T State University (NC A&T). NC A&T’s winning iOS IVI is Let’s Go Black. Let’s Go Black is an iOS application that helps discover a customized road trip adventure exploring Black history and culture, while supporting Black owned small businesses along the way. The app allows users to input parameters of the trip (i.e. theme, distance and starting location), then randomly generates a road trip with specially curated stops that are African American inspired attractions and landmarks. Additionally, the app alerts users when they are within the vicinity of Black owned small businesses, who are members of the Let’s Go Black platform.

The 2016 BE Smart Hackathon, sponsored by Toyota was judged by industry leading experts from companies such as Intel and AT&T.

Entrata Partners with IDScan.net

Entrata partners with IDScan.net to add ID scanning capabilities to its mobile leasing solution, SiteTablet.


NEW ORLEANS, LA (PRWEB) MARCH 31, 2016

Entrata, the multi-family industry’s fastest growing technology provider, has partnered with IDScan.net to bring new and innovative ID scanning capabilities to its SiteTablet mobile leasing solution.

IDScan.net’s ID parsing software development kit enables companies like Entrata to incorporate driver’s license reading and parsing capabilities into its own applications. The state of the art technology does not require Internet connectivity to scan ID’s and it parses the data locally on each device, resulting in much faster processing speeds.

Both companies joined forces in October last year, with positive results coming in this quarter from existing clients.

“The new ID scanning feature is receiving excellent feedback from clients in the multi-family industry,” said Joshua Renberg, product manager, Entrata.

Since releasing the new ID scanning feature, Entrata has seen usage and adoption rates more than double for one of the multi-family’s largest companies using SiteTablet.

The SiteTablet app was originally developed by Entrata to provide a connected mobile solution to the antiquated leasing process of the multi-family industry. In the past, leasing agents relied heavily on paper brochures, printed availability and pricing sheets and paper leases. SiteTablet allows agents to connect directly to their Property Management Software so they have real-time access to all of the information they need to do their job effectively.

“We chose IDScan.net’s software to quickly scan driver’s licenses in an effort to streamline and efficiently capture prospective residents’ information during the leasing process,” said Renberg.“This change to the process is much more efficient in time and reduces errors in transposing details such as name, address and license number.”

“Our Company is pleased to provide innovative ID scanning capabilities to companies like Entrata who are looking for a fast, accurate and efficient method of collecting ID information. We are excited to welcome Entrata as a customer and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with their team,” said IDScan.net’s CEO Denis Petrov. “We’ve been providing the most up to date and cost-effective ID reading technology to the commercial market for over 13 years, and it’s great to see the enhancement it has brought to Entrata’s SiteTablet.”

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.
