Excerpt from NPR:

Before you get on a plane, you go through a number of layers of security. The airline and the TSA both check to make sure you are who your ID claims you are.

One of the methods the TSA uses is a version of a security check system that’s also used by IBM, Shell, and some of the world’s largest retailers when you apply for a store card.

The technology for these security checks is provided by a company called IDScan.net.   NPR

Believe it or not, IDScan.net is a New Orleans company. IDScan.net’s Co-founder and CEO Denis Petrov joins Peter on this edition of Out to Lunch.

If you listen to this show regularly, you might have gotten so used to hearing about innovative entrepreneurs with successful businesses in New Orleans that you are no longer surprised by innovation or success. If you have gotten so used to sensational achievement that it’s going to take something pretty amazing to impress you, this conversation is for you.

Startup Closeup: IDScan.net

By: Lance Traweek, Managing Editor

Starting Point:

In today’s digitized world, businesses are looking to quickly and accurately identify customers for efficient transactions. IDScan.net, an ID verification business, was created to help them.

IDScan.net markets with a mobile solution, and counts IBM, Shell and Tesla as some of the customers using its technology.

Founded in 2003, IDScan.net was established without external capital. Its founders, Russian immigrants Denis Petrov and Andrey Stanovnov, began working out of their homes and later moved to LaunchPad. They enrolled at The Idea Village, and the New Orleans-based tech company is now based in the University of New Orleans Lakefront tech park.

Petrov said what started as a hobby developed into a business.entrepreneur

“We are very proud immigrants that came a very long way and developed a passion for entrepreneurship,” said Petrov, the firm’s CEO. “We are proud to be in the United States and help with the technological growth of this great country.”

The Pitch:

IDScan.net captures information from a form of identification. Clients use IDScan.net’s solutions to auto-populate forms, run background checks, track customer activity and manage rewards programs.

Processing the data only takes a couple of seconds and eliminates mistakes and frustrations associated with manual entry, Petrov said. Retailers, auto dealers and rental companies use IDScan.net’s solutions to instantly capture customer information and run credit checks. Places like casinos, theme parks, bars, and college campuses use it to track activity coming and going, to manage customer loyalty programs, pinpoint fake IDs and grant or restrict access. In addition, many businesses use it to generate customer analytics.

Traction:

IDScan.net was the first to market with the mobile iteration of the technology. In 2009, it delivered the first mobile app approved by Apple that allows a North American driver’s license to be scanned. He said that allowed them to be set apart from similar products.

The company is looking toward the future when physical forms of identification may be replaced with technologies like facial recognition. Petrov said they have created a TSA-approved tool that enables flight crews to electronically verify and validate a passenger’s photo ID prior to boarding a private aircraft.

While they serve major brands, IDScan.net is not able to name many of its customers. They include some of the world’s largest retail chains, automotive dealers and financial institutions, Petrov said.

Marketing:

Petrov said they have various marketing techniques. They use trade shows to promote the technology.

“We continue to innovate that technology,” Petrov said.

Competition:

Petrov said there are a few publicly traded companies and startups that compete in the same space.

“We identify certain niches that we work in and already have a solid track record that speaks for itself,” he said.

He he wants to continue to create technology that helps businesses by streamlining processes.

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!

Entrata Partners with IDScan.net

Entrata partners with IDScan.net to add ID scanning capabilities to its mobile leasing solution, SiteTablet.


NEW ORLEANS, LA (PRWEB) MARCH 31, 2016

Entrata, the multi-family industry’s fastest growing technology provider, has partnered with IDScan.net to bring new and innovative ID scanning capabilities to its SiteTablet mobile leasing solution.

IDScan.net’s ID parsing software development kit enables companies like Entrata to incorporate driver’s license reading and parsing capabilities into its own applications. The state of the art technology does not require Internet connectivity to scan ID’s and it parses the data locally on each device, resulting in much faster processing speeds.

Both companies joined forces in October last year, with positive results coming in this quarter from existing clients.

“The new ID scanning feature is receiving excellent feedback from clients in the multi-family industry,” said Joshua Renberg, product manager, Entrata.

Since releasing the new ID scanning feature, Entrata has seen usage and adoption rates more than double for one of the multi-family’s largest companies using SiteTablet.

The SiteTablet app was originally developed by Entrata to provide a connected mobile solution to the antiquated leasing process of the multi-family industry. In the past, leasing agents relied heavily on paper brochures, printed availability and pricing sheets and paper leases. SiteTablet allows agents to connect directly to their Property Management Software so they have real-time access to all of the information they need to do their job effectively.

“We chose IDScan.net’s software to quickly scan driver’s licenses in an effort to streamline and efficiently capture prospective residents’ information during the leasing process,” said Renberg.“This change to the process is much more efficient in time and reduces errors in transposing details such as name, address and license number.”

“Our Company is pleased to provide innovative ID scanning capabilities to companies like Entrata who are looking for a fast, accurate and efficient method of collecting ID information. We are excited to welcome Entrata as a customer and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with their team,” said IDScan.net’s CEO Denis Petrov. “We’ve been providing the most up to date and cost-effective ID reading technology to the commercial market for over 13 years, and it’s great to see the enhancement it has brought to Entrata’s SiteTablet.”
