Handheld passport solution

IDScan.net and Panasonic Announce First-Ever Handheld Passport Scanner

IDScan.net Partners with Panasonic to Provide a Complete Handheld Passport and ID Scanning Solution

 

 

NEW ORLEANS (PRWEB) APRIL 03, 2018

IDScan.net, the first company to market with mobile ID scanning capabilities nearly a decade ago, has partnered with Panasonic to offer the first-ever handheld solution for reading Machine Readable Zone (MRZ), allowing organizations to scan passports and IDs from anywhere in the world. The solution allows users to scan, capture, and verify data embedded in the MRZ, including name, country, date of birth, and expiration date- within seconds and with 100 percent accuracy.

“This is game-changing. The ability to now scan passports with a handheld device will improve operations for a multitude of industries,” said Denis Petrov, the CEO of IDScan.net. “Before now, handheld scanners weren’t capable of reading passports. This new solution will be revolutionary, improving everything from visitor management to security.”

Travel passports worldwide are standardized and have a special MRZ, which is usually at the bottom of the identity page at the beginning of a passport. This new handheld solution is the first to be able to read MRZ by pairing the Panasonic Toughpad® FZ-N1 handheld device with IDScan.net’s suite of ID scanning solutions, including its out-of-the-box platform as well as enterprise services, ID scanning SDK, and web services API.

With the most robust parsing engine on the market, IDScan.net’s solutions are completely customizable. IDScan.net offers a variety of features for added layers of identity verification, including facial recognition technology and the ability to run ID data against various watchlists. Other add-on features include text notifications, visit scheduling, and self-expiring visitor badges.

The Panasonic Toughpad® FZ-N1 is a powerful, slim and fully-rugged handheld. It features a quad-core processor, angled rear-facing barcode reader, optional stylus pen, and long-lasting battery that is warm-swappable.

“This groundbreaking solution combines ease-of-use and mobility with rugged durability,” said Larry Bowar, Senior Business Development Manager at Panasonic. “The Toughpad is ready to go where business takes you. And if it takes a six-foot drop, don’t worry—it can handle it. It can also withstand inclement weather, making it the choice for unrelenting conditions.”

IDScan.net’s Facial Recognition Solutions

Facial Recognition for Businesses

 Read Time: 3 min.

By 2019, it is expected that facial recognition will be an $8 billion market, and one that will continue to quickly expand.  Businesses have already begun to incorporate facial biometrics to gather demographic data, improve safety and customer experience and reduce fraud. Unfortunately, these kinds of technologies have historically been complex, expensive, and ultimately out of reach for most. However, IDScan.net is giving developers and businesses the tools they need to incorporate facial recognition into their operations. Developers can easily integrate the benefits of face analysis into their product, app or service while other businesses can take advantage of IDScan.net’s out of the box solutions.

IDScan.net’s out of the box solution, compatible with VeriScan Plus allows you to capture an image of both, the persons face and ID.  State of the art biometric software then compares the two images to determine how much of a match they are. Businesses can use this to ensure customers are who they say they are reducing the use of fake IDs and fraud.  Additionally, once a face or ID has been entered, that person will no longer need to stop to have their ID or face scanned.  Our software will automatically recognize that persons face and pull up their ID, along with any comments such as banned or VIP when they come on to your premises. This option is available for both, our out of the box solutions or for our enterprise SDK.

For enterprise customers, those who wish to add facial recognition to their own applications, IDScan.net offers a similar solution, allowing businesses to compare the image of your customer’s ID to the customer’s picture with some additional features. The enterprise solution allows the customer to take a photo of themselves (a selfie) for comparison to the ID, and makes sure the picture was taken in real time again, helping businesses to reduce fraudulent accounts.

Whether you are interested in our out of the box solutions or one of our enterprise solutions, IDScan.net can help you integrate the newest biometric software into your existing system. Give us a call to see how 1-888-430-8936.  Free trial of software is available, issued at no cost and on a 30 day basis.

municipal refuse disposal site

Municipalities, Stop Wasting Your Time with Waste!

Over the course of the last year IDScan.net has worked with the City of Chattanooga to develop a technology that would help them automate dumping at their three refuse disposal sites.

The Results:

One result was a transaction time that was 20 times faster than the previous one! What used to take a minute to process now takes 3 seconds. The other result? They decreased the tonnage and disposal cost for each center.

How it Works:

When a resident scans their ID, IDScan.net’s mobile ID scanning system checks the ID against the Chattanooga database to determine whether the ID is a) within the City of Chattanooga Limits and; b) how many times the resident has deposited refuse at the center that year.

The City of Chattanooga’s personnel then receives a pop up on the mobile device with the corresponding information. If the resident is not within the limits, they are turned away. It has also helped Chattanooga more strictly enforce their policy to allow up to disposing 12 times per rolling year.

What People Are Saying:

Debie Mikel, Chattanooga’s Technical Information Manager states, “The VeriScan Online automated data capture is an enormous added value.” To read the whole case study, click here.

IDScan.net is in the process of helping other municipalities and is ready to help others that are ready to stop wasting time with waste!

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

With VeriScan Online, it takes less than 1 second to collect the ID information; this automation provides greater efficiency and accuracy for businesses. The applications not only capture ID and payment information, they also capture signature, provide geo coordinates as well as a receipt. The information collected allows organizations and businesses to better understand their donors or customers. With the applications, businesses can generate reports to identify gender, age, and zip code through an online web portal.

The payment processing is now integrated into all versions of the VeriScan Online application. This also includes the newly released VS Max, a cloud based ID scanning app which has similar functionality to VeriScan Online but gives users further customization options which include customizable fields, whether it is for a questionnaire or to more quickly process visitors.

IDScan.net CTO, Andrey Stanovnov, states “The VS Max application has the additional feature of being completely customizable. The added advantage is it allows customers to tailor exactly what information they would like to capture and keep track of said data in a very streamlined way.
