ID Authentication for Dispensaries

Not all ID scanning is created equal. If you aren’t authenticating, you’re not catching fakes.

2D Barcode Scanning For Dispensaries

The 2D barcode on the back of an ID contains information such as first name, last name, and date of birth. It also often contains tells that indicate whether an ID is fake.

Our AI-powered VeriScan Online software checks for anomalies in the 2D barcode based on more than 10,000 data points. When paired with specialty hardware, our software uses ORC to check the 2D barcode against the text on the front of the ID. If the information does not match, the ID is fake.

What is ID Authentication?

Drivers licenses and passports have been designed to be difficult to fake. They include hundreds of security features built into the document, including holograms, watermarks, microprints, and “if you know you know” easter eggs.

In order to authenticate an ID, your dispensary needs both specialty hardware, capable of scanning the document with UV, infrared, and white light, and performing simultaneous front/back image capture, and software which can match the results of those scans against libraries of document templates, ensuring that the document security features are accurate.

Add Checks Against Third Party Databases

For an additional layer of security, or in instances in which document authentication is not practical, such as cannabis delivery, third party checks can be used to verify identity.
