IDScan.net to demo latest facial recognition “BarTech” at Nightclub & Bar Show booth 419

LAS VEGAS (Feb. 25, 2019)

IDScan.net, a leader in ID scanning and identity verification, will be showcasing the newest innovations (facial recognition) in visitor management at the Nightclub & Bar Show on March 25-27, 2019 in Las Vegas. The tech company’s popular “Bar Bundle” will be on display as well as new facial recognition solutions that help bars and clubs improve operations while enhancing customer experience.

“Advances in our technology are making it more accessible for nightclubs and bars of all sizes. The obvious reasons for using our solutions are age verification and spotting fake IDs. But they can also improve business in other, less obvious ways. For example, they can tell your staff who is approaching before they ever arrive, including if they are a VIP or on a banned list.”

Denis Petrov, IDScan.net Co-Founder

IDScan.net’s popular Bar Bundle is a cloud-based mobile solution designed specifically to meet the needs of the hospitality industry. With the most robust parsing engine on the market, the Bar Bundle captures and verifies the data on any government-issued ID within seconds and with 100 percent accuracy. The solution allows bars and clubs to process guests quickly while reducing liability by spotting fake IDs and confirming patrons’ ages.

What truly sets the Bar Bundle apart is that it pairs the power and functionality of IDScan.net’s VeriScan with the durability and ease-of-use of a rugged handheld device. This exclusive solution allows venues like bars and nightclubs to increase productivity, automate data capture, streamline customer management, enhance security, optimize operational efficiency, and much more.

While fully customizable, the off-the-shelf Bar Bundle comes with IDScan.net’s powerful ID scanning technology that verifies age and catches fakes as well as VeriScan Online, the company’s popular age verification and visitor management software. The hardware includes the rugged Unitech PA730, which handles the full functionality of VeriScan Online with the flexibility of a mobile ID scanner.

This year, the company will be spotlighting its new facial recognition add-on, which uses small video cameras to identify patrons as they approach access points. The technology works by capturing an image of both a guest’s face and their photo on an ID. IDScan.net’s state-of-the-art biometric software then compares the two images to determine how much of a match they are.

Once a face or ID has been entered, that person will no longer need to stop to have their ID or face scanned. The solution automatically recognizes that person’s face and pulls up their ID, along with any comments, such as banned or VIP, when they come on to the premises.

“With just a video camera and a few lines of code, clubs and bars can access a whole new level of visitor management and marketing,” said Petrov. “The Bar Bundle contains features that enable a venue to keep track of what a VIP likes to drink – even how frequently they typically like to be refreshed. The system can keep track of the section of the club in which they prefer to be seated and of special occasions, like their birthdays or anniversaries. It can be as turnkey or as customized as you want.”

On a more macro level, bars can use the information to know about customer behaviors and design marketing promotions and operations around them.

All the data collected through IDScan.net’s solutions can be accessed on our cloud-based dashboard by any authorized staff at any time. That means multiple venues at different locations can access the data in real time. This is especially useful to franchises.

The Bar Bundle mobile solution also features text and email notification upon a group member arrival, self-expiring name tags/VIP bracelets, and customizable agreements or waivers.

One of the most valuable features is payment processing, which can easily connect to a venue’s POS system.
