Visitor Management Solution

IDScan.net Provides Oil Refinery Giant with Visitor Management Solution

IDScan.net recently provided an oil refinery giant with new visitor management solution to facilitate their automated entry process.  The solution is kiosk-based and requires no supervisor or manual oversight.  Everything from entry request to database checking to badge printing is automated.

The refinery deployed this solution to six entry points at their facility, so that they are secure from all access points and may track exactly where on the premises each visitor is.

Visitor Management Systems Pipeline:

The VeriScan Online Visitor Management Systems module is a multifaceted solution covering each step of the visitor management process:

The first step in the VMS pipeline is the access request form.  By utilizing this access queue you take the first step to fully automating your security solution.    Prospective visitors are provided with a link to a customizable request form.  Upon completion, this form is sent to a processing queue to be reviewed.  If your business is qualified for government database checks they are performed at this point.

The second step of the VMS pipeline occurs upon the visitor’s access request clearing the database checks and a visitation has been scheduled.  Upon arrival at your location, the visitor will scan his ID.  This can be done with a myriad of devices, however we suggest either an Infinea Tab Scanner for iPad, or the Honeywell Captuvo models for iPhone and iPad.  Upon scan, the software will display demographic information such as name, age, address, gender, date of birth, as well as the ID’s expiration date, indicating its validity.   After clearing this second round of security, the guest moves forward in the pipeline.

The third step is to print the guest a visitor’s badge.  This badge is customizable and can include a picture of the guest and all relevant information, include an expiration date and time.  Small thermal printers are recommended for this process, as they are inexpensive and easily deployable.  Upon providing the visitor with an expiring badge they become authorized.

The forth step to the VMS process is record keeping.  All logged IDs can be found at the VeriScan Online dashboard at www.veriscanonline.com.  From there, security managers can generate reports, create custom groups to further categorize your visitors by interest or purpose (e.g. investor, maintenance, contractor, etc) and monitor other visitors in real-time.

Using a sophisticated, modern, visitor management solution will save your company labor costs and time spent processing would-be clients and customers.  It will also provide you and your business the peace of mind knowing that your solution covers against all risks, and certifies that your guest and your business is protected in the event of an emergency.

KOAMTAC releases KDC500 Chip and Pin Scanner

“KOAMTAC has built a complete Bluetooth barcode data companion portfolio over the last 10 years, and continues to provide the most compact, power efficient devices on the market,” stated Dr. Hanjin Lee, President and CEO of KOAMTAC.

KOAMTAC bluetooth barcode scanning solutions

 

KOAMTAC, Inc. Launches Beautifully Crafted Miniature 2D Bluetooth Barcode Scanner with its New KDC30 Model
KDC30September 17, 2014, Princeton, NJ- KOAMTAC, Inc. today announced the release of its new KDC30 model, an advanced miniature Bluetooth barcode scanner. Equipped with a Code imager, the KDC30/30i provide a cost-effective 1D and 2D barcode scanning solution for smartphone and tablet applications. KOAMTAC, Inc. and Code are confident the design of this product will be a great success in all solutions, particularly in retail and healthcare environments.

 

Inspired by KOAMTAC’s uniquely designed KDC20/20i, the KDC30 is equipped with a convenient swing-out USB connector. The simplistic design eliminates the need for charging cables and promotes the use of “off-the-shelf” multi-USB charging solutions. The KDC30/30i utilizes the company’s existing KTSync application and SDK for ease of integration, and is compatible with any application designed for existing KDC models. The scanner is certified by Apple for use with iOS devices and is also compatible with Android, Blackberry, Mac, and Windows devices.

 

Measuring a scant 38mm wide by 84mm long and 18mm thin, the Bluetooth scanner offers more than 10,000 scans per charge. This highly configurable device includes four buttons: scan, up, down (for controlling Bluetooth connections and remotely activating soft keyboards), and a delete key. Custom features are available, including a vibrating option and backup battery for the real time clock.

 

“KOAMTAC products have long been appreciated for their seamless smartphones/tablets integration,” said George Powell, President and CEO of Code Corporation. “Code engineers have raised the bar in scan engines with the CR8000 dual optical fields, 2D scan engine and we are thrilled to integrate our technology into KOAMTAC products.”

 

“With the KDC30, we have ushered in a new level of sophistication in industrial design. KOAMTAC products have long been appreciated for their ultra-miniature size, timeless classic shape and iconic 4-line OLED display,” stated Dr. Hanjin Lee, President and CEO of KOAMTAC. “But many of today’s applications rely solely on the display of the smart device with which theKDC is paired. So we have removed our display and have created a form that blends harmoniously with today’s beautiful smart devices from Apple and Samsung.”

 

For offline data capture, the KDC30 has ample memory capable of holding up to 10,000 barcodes. The KDC30 is now available through the company’s worldwide distribution channels or at www.koamtacstore.com with a starting MSRP of $449 (USD).

Fight chargebacks with VeriScan Plus and the M-280 Scanner.

How Do I Protect my Nightclub from Chargebacks?

You’ve experienced it before.  A customer comes to your nightclub, spends a lot of money, and a week later issues a chargeback through their credit card company.  This phenomenon is a result of something called “buyer’s remorse”, and it affects thousands of clubs all over the country on a weekly basis.

 

Chargebacks directly hurt your business’s bottom line and lead to a significant loss on your books.  With chargebacks becoming a frequent occurrence in the nightclub industry, how do we protect ourselves from these costly transactions?

 

Here at IDFalcon, we developed a fully integrated system that helps you keep track of visitors and prove that they were on your premises.  We integrated ID scanning, image capture, fingerprinting, and electronic signature into a system that is still easy-to-use, fast and efficient, and most importantly, effective.

 

Crazy Horse III in Las Vegas found VeriScan Plus and the M-280 scanner to have an immediate impact on their club’s operations.  By utilizing it at the VIP section of their club, Crazy Horse III is able to quickly capture all of the customer’s credentials and information to protect themselves from fraud and chargebacks.  The system is also fast and efficient, which allowed them to still deliver an extremely high level of customer service and an excellent customer experience.

 

Many of our customers have championed that the major benefit of VeriScan Plus and the M-280 is the ability to capture three forms of identification in fewer than 5 seconds – customer information (name, age, gender, address, etc.), a picture of the person, and an image of their driver’s license and credit card.  We also integrated fingerprinting and electronic signature as an additional level of security to guarantee that customers cannot issue a chargeback.

 

Chargebacks are costly, but they don’t have to hurt your club.  With our new system, chargebacks are a thing of the past.  Stop “buyer’s remorse” and start fighting chargebacks.

1% of customers Cause 95% of incidents at Nightclubs and Bars

Check out our upcoming article in Club Bulletin Magazine!

When people go out for the night, they want to have a fun and safe experience.  It is important to find a way to provide this experience to your customers by keeping troublemakers off of your premises.  What’s the best way to keep the troublemakers out?   Here are 5 tips:

 

1. Ensure their ID is valid

Checking an ID to ensure that it is real and not expired is extremely important to protect yourself from liability and ensuring your premises is safe.  We recommend using an ID scanner (check out our mobile app VeriScan or VeriScan Online) or hiring a professional to train your employees on how to spot a fake ID.  ID formats are constantly changing, so it’s important to stay up to date.

 

2. Reward the Good, Punish the Bad

Loyalty cards and other incentives can be very persuasive in determining a patron’s behavior.  By creating a strong loyalty program where you reward the good and punish the bad can greatly persuade customers to be on their best behavior.  To ensure this is successful, it is important to advertise your loyalty program to customers to make them aware of your VIP and Banned lists.

 

3. If you kick them out, make sure they stay out

There’s no such thing as a one-time offender.  Many of the club-goers who get kicked out tend to come back and cause more trouble.  If you ban them from your establishment, make sure you keep them out and don’t allow them to sneak in when a different bouncer is on duty.  Most modern ID scanners have this capability and will allow you to record incident details.

 

4. Talk with your fellow club owners

Many troublemakers will get kicked out of one club and simply move onto the next one.  If you talk with your fellow club owners or share a list of banned patrons with each other, you can better protect your club and make the night more enjoyable for your customers.

 

5. Let them know you’re watching

It is important to make customers aware that you know who they are.  Placing cameras where customers can see them will let them know you’re being vigilant to keep your club safe.

VeriScan Online

Protect your Business from Troublesome Customers

Check out our most recent case study in i.Business Magazine!

Minneapolis, MN:  Several bars, nightclubs, and restaurants in Minneapolis discovered that the same customers continually go door to door and cause all of their businesses’ problems.  To eliminate this issue, these business owners began looking for a way to work together to keep the 1% of their customers that cause 95% of their incidents off their premises.

 

The best solution they found was a mobile app called VeriScan Online from IDScan.net, which allows businesses to share lists and instantly ban patrons from their establishments.  Through this cloud-based solution, if a patron is kicked out or banned at one establishment and tries to go to another one, the owner will immediately receive a SMS or email notification upon swiping the person’s driver’s license at the door.

 

Steve Hark from Aqua Club is the leader of the movement to make Minneapolis’ nightlife a more enjoyable and safer experience.  Since his adoption of VeriScan Online, eight other restaurants, bars, and nightclubs started using the app and its shared list feature to keep dangerous customers from entering their premises.

 

IDScan.net’s VeriScan Online is a sophisticated ID verification system that provides a new standard for mobile ID scanning.  Coupled with Honeywell’s industry-leading SL22 iPod/iPhone scanner, VeriScan Online turns any Apple device into a powerful ID scanning device that scans all drivers’ license from the US or Canada, verifies age, and captures data into an online data analytics dashboard.

 

“Our goal is to provide a mobile solution that protects business from liability and keeps their premises’ safe,” said IDScan.net’s CEO Denis Petrov.  “We fully support the Minneapolis’ businesses that have started working together to keep dangerous customers away from their establishments.”

 

VeriScan Online with the Honeywell SL22 scanner is utilized for access control and customer relationship management.  This solutions provides a full suite of features including a magnetic stripe reader, 2D barcode scanner, image capture capabilities, custom groups such as Banned and VIP, and online reporting tools.  Because VeriScan Online is a cloud-based solution, it easily synchronizes information across several devices and geographical locations.

 

VeriScan Online is available on the App Store and offers a 30-day free trial.
