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.

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’s new device, the KDC500, is the latest in the long-standing line of pocket sized bluetooth barcode scanners.

The bluetooth barcode scanner is no longer a rarity in the ever evolving POS, inventory managment, and id scanning industries.   The device’s 1D laser is compatible with most product barcodes while its 2D imager is compatible with all state and federal ID formats, including military IDs.    What separates the KDC500 is its inclusion of advanced payment processing methods as well as its size and long battery life.  “The KDC500 is 50% smaller and lighter than its competitors, but with its ultra-efficient power management technique it enables a long lasting operation; up to a few weeks on a single charge.”

The KDC500 bluetooth barcode scanner is intended to bridge the gap to the Chip and Pin market in America by providing an easy to use lightweight and ergonomic Chip and Pin scanner with a multi-case form factor that should appeal to most large-scale retailers and warehouses.

The rise of Biometrics

The Watchdog from the Dallas Morning News recently pointed out the new imposition of biometrics when renewing a driver’s license.

Previously, biometrics including fingerprints and facial recognition would never be required unless you were convicted of a crime.  Outside of some government occupations that require fingerprints, DMV databases would keep your fingerprints online.

With the constant encroachment on our privacy, is the imposition of new biometrics a good thing?  There is a definite trade off between respecting people’s privacy and enhancing security.  Which are more important to you?

The introduction of biometrics is becoming more and more common for access control, visitor management, and liability claims (read our article about fighting chargebacks).

If biometrics are essential to the security of your business, we recommend you checking out our VeriScan Desktop software.  VeriScan Desktop provides the ability to collect an image of a person’s drivers license, fingerprints, an image of the visitor, and an electronic signature.  It is the perfect solution for those looking for an extra layer of security.

What do you think about biometrics and fingerprinting?  Leave your comments below and let us know what you think.
