Global ID scanning Solution

IDScan.net Launches Solution Capable of Scanning Any ID

Global ID Scanning Solution Enables Secure Visitor Management

Secure venues across the globe now have an easy, high-tech solution for processing visitors. IDScan.net, the first company to market with mobile ID scanning capabilities, has launched VeriScan Global, a new global ID scanning solution that can read virtually any government-issued ID from any country in the world. Other similar technologies can only read U.S. and Canadian IDs and foreign passports.

“Anyone looking to maintain security on their property, from chemical plants to office buildings, now has an easy-to-use tool for processing all their guests, foreign and domestic,” said Denis Petrov, the CEO of IDScan.net, which has specialized in ID scanning for over 14 years.

With the most robust parsing engine on the market, VeriScan Global allows users to capture an image of an ID and the data contained on it – within seconds and with 100 percent accuracy.

Part of IDScan.net’s existing visitor management suite, VeriScan, VeriScan Global is capable of reading virtually all IDs.

The solution is completely customizable, and IDScan.net offers a variety of features for added layers of identity verification, including facial recognition technology and the ability to run an ID data against various watchlists, such as OFAC and MK Denial. Other add-on features include text notifications, visit scheduling, and self-expiring visitor badges.

“Our solution makes processing and managing visitors quick and easy, improving the visitor experience while enhancing security,” Petrov said.

Secure Visitor Management System

4 Ways ID Scanning is Crucial to a Secure Visitor Management System

A Secure Visitor Management Process May Occur Before the Visitor Sets Foot in the Building.

With ID scanning solutions such as IDScan.net’s VeriScan or VeriScan Online, facility personnel can create and send a visit request to a security director with an electronic request form. This form includes such information as the start of the visit, the host’s name, the visitor’s name and other pertinent information. Once the request is submitted, the security director can decide whether or not that individual is automatically approved for the visitor queue or requires further authorization. The scheduled visits can then be viewed by the appropriate security personnel. On the day of the visit, security staff can scan the visitor’s ID. In less than 1 second, the necessary information is captured and a self-expiring visitor badge can be produced. A text or email can also be sent to the appropriate personnel upon the scan of a visitor’s ID. This is the first step to a secure visitor management system.

Biometrics Can Be Used in Conjunction with ID Scanning.

IDScan.net’s latest mobile facial recognition solution ensures that an individual’s face matches the face on their ID. Be sure to ask for a demo at ASIS this year to see it in action! There are also other biometric add-ons that can be incorporated such as fingerprint scanning.

A Higher Level of Identity Validation Can Be Necessary.

If security personnel wants to add another layer of security to their visitor management system, they can utilize IDScan.net’s background check services. The results from these checks appear in just a few seconds.  If a company has their own subscription to a background service, IDScan.net’s solutions can also run a visitor’s ID against that list to return instantaneous results. In addition, some facilities have internal watch lists such as “Banned” visitors. These lists can be imported into ID scanning applications such as VeriScan Online so when their ID is scanned, it will pop up that they are Banned even if their ID has never been scanned at that particular site. This added layer of security helps keep facilities even more protected and ensures a secure visitor management system.

Easily Access Visitor Records.

IDScan.net’s visitor management applications make it easy for security personnel to access and share scanned data. Users can access visitor records from multiple sites remotely and search by name, location, date and time and more. They can easily share this information with others when needed with the click of a button. If your facility requires visitors to sign a visitor agreement or waiver, it will automatically be saved, stored and linked to that individual’s record. 

Security companies across the globe are using ID scanning to enhance security and streamline visitor management. If you are not taking advantage of the benefits of ID scanning, you are much more vulnerable to outside threats.

3 Reasons Why ID Scanning is A Must for Nightclubs & Bars

Bar and club operators, if you are not taking advantage of the benefits of ID scanning, you are hurting your bottom line. ID scanning is not just about age verification and identifying fake IDs. Below are 3 reasons why ID scanning will increase your bottom line and boost your operations in the process.

Collect Valuable Demographic Information: With applications like VeriScan Online, bar & club managers & owners can gain valuable insight into their patrons. What zip code are the majority of the patrons coming from? What is the average age of a customer that comes in on Tuesdays at 7 pm? VeriScan Online’s reports section gives you the answers to these questions and more. This demographic data is easily accessible and is the difference between having an average bottom line versus a spectacular one.

Reduce Patron Wait Time: ID scanning automates the age verification process and makes it much easier to identify fake IDs. This takes a lot of burden off of your staff, and it will keep the lines moving, meaning more money that patrons will spend at your establishment. In addition, your bottom line is protected when you don’t receive fines due to your bouncer accidentally letting in  a minor after manually checking 100s or 1000s of IDs.

Easily Identify VIP & Banned Patrons: Do you want to receive a text or email notification of a VIP’s arrival or do you want your bouncer to be aware of when they arrive? Providing excellent service and paying extra attention to your VIP patrons will keep them coming back and will increase your bottom line. If your bouncer didn’t recognize the woman that spent $5,000 on bottle service or the guy that bought a whole round of  drinks for the bar after that winning touch down, your bottom line could be negatively impacted. Keep these kinds of clients happy as soon as they walk in the door. Conversely, if you want  your bouncer to be alerted that a banned patron is trying to enter, they will receive a “Banned” notification as soon as the ID is scanned.

IDScan.net’s VeriScan Online and other solutions will help your operations soar and increase your bottom line! Learn more about IDScan.net’s nightclub and bar solutions, here or call one of our specialists, at 888-430-8936!
