Toys for Tots

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.

IDScan.net Launches Solution Capable of Scanning Any ID

Global ID Scanning Solution Enables Secure Visitor Management

Secure venues across the globe now have an easy, high-tech solution for processing visitors. IDScan.net, the first company to market with mobile ID scanning capabilities, has launched VeriScan Global, a new global ID scanning solution that can read virtually any government-issued ID from any country in the world. Other similar technologies can only read U.S. and Canadian IDs and foreign passports.

“Anyone looking to maintain security on their property, from chemical plants to office buildings, now has an easy-to-use tool for processing all their guests, foreign and domestic,” said Denis Petrov, the CEO of IDScan.net, which has specialized in ID scanning for over 14 years.

With the most robust parsing engine on the market, VeriScan Global allows users to capture an image of an ID and the data contained on it – within seconds and with 100 percent accuracy.

Part of IDScan.net’s existing visitor management suite, VeriScan, VeriScan Global is capable of reading virtually all IDs.

The solution is completely customizable, and IDScan.net offers a variety of features for added layers of identity verification, including facial recognition technology and the ability to run an ID data against various watchlists, such as OFAC and MK Denial. Other add-on features include text notifications, visit scheduling, and self-expiring visitor badges.

“Our solution makes processing and managing visitors quick and easy, improving the visitor experience while enhancing security,” Petrov said.

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.

Hurricane Irma Recovery

FREE ID SCANNING TECH OFFERED TO HURRICANE HARVEY RESPONDERS

IDScan.net is offering free technology to assist those involved in Hurricane Harvey 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.

“The images coming out of the flood-ravaged areas are heartbreaking, and we in New Orleans know how important it is to have accurate information on people’s whereabouts in the chaotic aftermath of large scale disasters. That’s why we’re offering our solution for free,” said Denis Petrov, the CEO of IDScan.net.

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.

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 Harvey” to ensure full app functionality. Once registered, users will receive an email with further instructions.  

IDScan.net is also offering responders free technical support between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. CST Monday through Friday at 888-430-8936.

IDScan.net is also encouraging those to consider donating to a charitable organization such as Red Cross to continue assisting those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The solution also saves valuable time by eliminating the need for front-line staff to enter customer data into the company’s customer management system.

“Our clients are thrilled, not only with IDScan.net’s accurate identity verification, but with how easy it is to use and how much it improves efficiency.

IDScan.net Announces its Release of Mobile Passport Scanning

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.

 (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.
