IDScan.net Goes Global with Gaming

IDScan.net has a new global solution which will change the way the gaming industry operates. The Ultimate Global Solution automates loyalty enrollment and jackpot win entry by populating the information from the ID directly into the CMS. While IDScan.net has deployed this technology in casinos for over a decade, this solution is the first to allow casino operators to populate information from ANY country ID.

This is invaluable for the industry for a number of reasons. Casino personnel no longer have to waste time manually entering ID information and management can be assured that the information is 100% accurate. This is particularly important when issuing jackpot wins. In addition, the solution utilizes IDScan.net’s proprietary parsing engine along with UV and Infrared Technology powered by 3M hardware to provide an  unparalleled level of ID authentication.

For further authentication, casino operators can pair this with IDScan.net’s biometric technology and watch list checks. Gaming personnel can run the ID against internal, national as well as international databases some of which include Self-Exclusion, OFAC and more. IDScan.net has worked with its customers and industry partners to develop a solution that would help slot floor staff increase security while enhancing their operations.

The Ultimate Global Solution is IGT certified and will work with any Casino Management System. Casino operators can purchase it out-of-the-box or utilize it with IDScan.net’s ID scanning SDK for larger scale deployments.

IDScan.net is headquartered in New Orleans and for over 14 years has provided the gaming industry with quality ID scanning solutions that streamline visitor management, automate data capture and authenticate worldwide government-issued IDs.

ALE:

The Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE) is responsible for the enforcement of ABC Laws. They are a division of the Department of Public Safety.

As a bar owner in North Carolina, you know the importance of complying with  ALE and its unique requirements. Many of you have establishments which the ABC considers to be a private club. The North Carolina ABC rules can make ensuring compliance a time consuming and laborious process.

Some of ABC’s Requirements for North Carolina:

  • Membership Roster with all Members Names & Addresses in Alphabetical Order
  • Signed Membership Agreement in Alphabetical Order
  • Alphebatized Visitor Log
  • Member Hobbies

Bar Owners’ Challenges:

You are in a challenging position. You have to ensure that you meet the above requirements while also still focusing on training employees, ensuring your customers receive a positive and timely experience and ensuring that your staff can focus on their actual responsibilities rather than tedious labor.

Currently, many bar owners are keeping paper logs and having employees file them manually and in alphabetical order at least once a week to prepare for a possible ALE visit.  While this meets compliance, it is not efficient for operations and wastes precious time that you could dedicate toward enhanced service, marketing efforts, etc.
In an Ideal World, a North Carolina Bar Owner Would Like to be Able to:

  1. Automatically collect & store patron info and classify them as a member or guest

  2. Receive notification of when membership fees are due

  3. Have patron electronically sign membership agreement and store alphabetically for your records

  4. Print out a membership card after automatically collecting patron information

  5. Have an easily accessible and alphebatizable visitor log

Wizzforms with Remote Access

WizzForms Now Supports Remote Desktop Access

IDScan.net is proud to announce that WizzForms now supports remote desktop functionality.   Our customers asked for the capability to use WizzForms with their own server-based applications and through Windows remote desktop this is now possible.  This has many benefits for data capture projects in that it allows you to centralize information capture from multiple locations into one singular database.  Please note that this feature still requires a license key for each scanner.

WizzForms is a data capture and auto-population software that easily integrates into any existing application. WizzForms allows you to scan any state-issued ID (driver’s license, military ID, gun permit, etc.) and auto-populate the information from the ID into a digital form. WizzForms is compatible with any Windows computer and can be integrated into any type of application including POS systems, visitor management solutions, text-entry programs (MS Excel, Google Docs), or web-based applications. Setup is simple and intuitive and takes only 3-5 minutes with no programming skills required. If used with our IDWare TT 800 Scanner or ESeek 280, WizzForms will also allow you to capture the image of the front and back of an ID.  It also supports the entry of custom text, allowing it to be of use in any data capture solution that reads information from the back of a driver’s license or other federal IDs.

If you need assistance making the leap to remote desktop, don’t hesitate to call or email us for guidance and support.

Thanks and have a good one.

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.
