White Label Service

IDScan.net’s White Label Offerings

White Label Service from IDScan.net  Meets your Exact Needs

Read Time: 3 min.

 

White label service has become an industry standard, and our versatile visitor management and age verification software, VeriScan Online, is no exception. VeriScan Online is offered as a ready to use, out of the box solution, but for those needing a custom branded ID verification or visitor management solution, IDScan.net offers VeriScan online as a white label product.

Our technology utilizes the most robust parsing engine and can be customized (white label service) with your own branding, identity and features so it meets your businesses exact needs. Fully integrated and ready-made, both the consumer facing app and back-end portal can be customized to reflect your business logos, products, etc. It includes a robust portal for reporting, demographics, inventory management and analytics and is available to push directly into your platform as an API through web hooks if needed.

Our white label service has been used in the leasing market as an FHA compliant system to increase owner/operators safety, and to facilitate more informed marketing, sales, and operational decisions. Although leasing companies often require agents to acquire a picture ID before touring a prospective tenant, IDs were not being properly verified if at all. VeriScan Online makes it easy for untrained agents to scan and verify a potential renters drivers license or any government issued ID. Scanning a potential tenants ID also reduces errors and inconsistencies by eliminating  manual data entry. In addition to promoting a more secure workplace, VeriScan Online’s robust and fully customizeable reporting features made it easy for this business to gather demographics and create reports on exactly what was important to their business.

Our white label service has also been used in the alcohol delivery business. Our VeriScan Online Web API was integrated and used to scan and verify the individuals age upon delivery of alcoholic beverages. Our VeriScan Online software was customized so that the consumer facing app on the delivery drivers phone or device reflected the company logo and messaging. With additional development, this white label solution was further customized to allow the delivery driver to compare the ID scan upon delivery, to the original ID scan that was taken at the time of purchase on the mobile web application.

Whatever your age verification or visitor management needs may be, IDScan.net has the customization and white label service to make it your own. To find out more about how IDScan.net can help you brand our software to your business needs call us at 866-389-5361.

ID Scanning for Bar and Nightclub Owners

How ID Scanning Helps Improve Nightclub and Bar Operations

Read Time: 3 Min.

 

As ID scanning technology continues to expand, so do the industries using its versatile application. Establishments that rely on verifying age and ID validation like nightclubs and bars have the most to gain from incorporating IDScan.net’s ID scanning software into their daily operations.

Especially designed for nightclubs and bars, our Bar Bundle pairs a mobile ID scanner, the PA720 with our most robust version of our visitor management software, VeriScan Online Enterprise. Together this bundle allows you to simultaneously scan and customer’s ID and verify their age, not only increasing security but reducing customer wait times as well.

The software scans all U.S. and Canadian IDs and passports. VeriScan Online Enterprise alerts you when an ID has been scanned multiple times, even across multiple entry points, diminishing the chances of a patron passing an ID to a friend.  

To further enhance the security and operations at your establishment, our Bar Bundle  allows you to create customer lists, including VIP to quickly identify your most valued customers. For those that repeatedly cause trouble, you can create a banned customer list, shareable between bars, to prevent trouble makers from other bars ever entering your establishment.

The Bar Bundle allows you to run valuable demographic information so you know where your customers are coming from and  create more targeted marketing efforts. The solution is also great for winning chargebacks. With the customizeable agreements feature nightclub and bar operators can have customers electronically sign an agreement stating that they did in fact participate in bottle service or purchase the amount charged to their card.

Increasing security and streamlining operations are just a few of the ways IDScan.net’s ID scanning solutions can enhance the way your  nightclub or bar  operates.

For more information on our Bar Bundle or our other out of the box solutions please contact 1-888-430-8936. IDScan.net also provides custom development for mobile or POS such as SDK for integration and web services.

Nation Wide Crackdown on Underage Drinking

With the arrival of summer, states across the nation are taking precautionary measures to crackdown on underage drinking. One of several examples can be seen in Washington’s youth access compliance check program.

The Washington State Liquor Board has initiated a program to help prevent minors from drinking. They have selected a particularly interesting approach through employing the assistance of 18-21 year olds. The WSLCB refers to this demographic assisting them as “IA”s- Investigative Aides. They plant the IA’s throughout local bars to see how the bartender or bouncers respond to their  ID’s.

While this approach lauds creativity, why not use an ID scanner and parsing system that is 100% fool proof? IDScan.net has the most up to date technology in ID scanning. Our software reads ID’s from all 50 states as well as Canada and various Mexican forms of identification. Our software is user friendly and provides data that is 100% accurate. This way, you are always in compliance with federal and state laws and do not have to dedicate manpower that would be more beneficial elsewhere. You will never have to pay a compliance fine again!  Due to our 10+ years of experience, we know every issuers format and timeframe so you never have to worry about whether an ID is no longer valid. The proprietary algorithm we have built in our software notifies you as to whether the ID is authentic. We recommend checking out our software VeriScan Mobile https://idscan.net/wp/solutions/mobile/veriscan-mobile/.

Do your civic duty this summer and help protect America’s youth. Check out IDScan.net’s complete solutions at http://store.idscan.net/Complete-Solutions_c_11.html.

5 Steps to ID Verification Compliance

At IDScan.net we take pride in being a one stop source for bars and nightclubs ID verification and scanning needs.  If asking yourself, “Is my ID verification process cutting it?” take note of these 5 steps to ensure that it is.

1.   Contact your state’s regulatory body for guidelines and advice.

In Louisiana we have Alcohol and Tobacco Control.  In Mississippi there is Alcoholic Beverage Control.  These administrative bodies serve the same purpose but have different policies and preferences on how to follow  alcohol and tobacco regulations.  By contacting your state’s policy enforcing group, you ensure that you have the most relevant guidelines and information to help you stay in compliance.

Familiarize yourself and your staff with both federal and state policies towards alcohol and tobacco sales.  Is there a minimum age a client must look to avoid being ID’d?  How do you verify the authenticity of the ID?  Do you need an electronic record of having verified the ID?  How long must you maintain client data proving your customer base was carded and of age?  How do you record underage offenders?  The first step to achieving and maintaining compliance is knowing how to define compliance.

2.    Create specific, achievable practices to follow the regulations and suggestions provided by your regulatory body.

Sit down with your staff and discuss the most effective ways to comply with set alcohol and tobacco sale policies.  How will you deal with invalid ID’s?  What scanners will you implement to verify the authenticity of said IDs?  Where will these scanners be located and who will have training and access to them?  There are more steps to compliance than “look at every ID,” although that is certainly a good place to start.

3.   Find a solution that is both secure and efficient.

While security and effectiveness should be your priority in developing you ID verification system, try to be as efficient as possible.  When your establishment is busy the last thing you want is a cumbersome identification process.   Take the weight off of bartenders and bouncers by implementing an automated electronic system.  Regulations have become stricter, but technology has come a long way since manually inspecting each and every ID.  Take advantage of this and make your verification process as painless as possible.

For a list of recommended scanners and software please see idscan.net/solutions.

4.   Train your staff in best practices for alcohol and tobacco sales.

There are plenty or resources that can be found through regulatory bodies and attorney general offices.

For example the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office released this useful guide that educates managers and staff on best practices for accountability:  http://www.ago.state.ms.us/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Guide-to-Prevent-Underage-Alcohol-Tobacco-Sales-to-Minors.pdf

Although Mississippi’s laws and policies may not be identical to your state’s, the information contained is still relevant as it explains important overall policies (e.g. how to calm, handle belligerent customers, how to diffuse tense or heated situations).

5.   Be consistent and thorough.

Don’t fall into bad practices such as assuming someone’s of age because the bar is packed.  Incentivize your staff into checking IDs regularly.  Many managers have had success by implementing a rewards program for the confiscation of fake IDs.

A major pitfall many bars and nightclubs experience is the prevalence of the idea that more customers equal more tips.  This unfortunately translates into underage customers also equal more tips.   Make sure that your staff understands the severity of regulatory punishments.  IT DOES NOT PAY TO SERVE MINORS.  Hold your staff accountable.  Otherwise everyone will pay the price.

If you have any questions about the steps listed above, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.  We’ve been helping businesses implement and execute ID verification programs for over ten years.  We’ll help you take the steps necessary as well.
