|KOAMTAC, Inc. Launches Beautifully Crafted Miniature 2D Bluetooth Barcode Scanner with its New KDC30 Model|
|September 17, 2014, Princeton, NJ- KOAMTAC, Inc. today announced the release of its new KDC30 model, an advanced miniature Bluetooth barcode scanner. Equipped with a Code imager, the KDC30/30i provide a cost-effective 1D and 2D barcode scanning solution for smartphone and tablet applications. KOAMTAC, Inc. and Code are confident the design of this product will be a great success in all solutions, particularly in retail and healthcare environments.
Inspired by KOAMTAC’s uniquely designed KDC20/20i, the KDC30 is equipped with a convenient swing-out USB connector. The simplistic design eliminates the need for charging cables and promotes the use of “off-the-shelf” multi-USB charging solutions. The KDC30/30i utilizes the company’s existing KTSync application and SDK for ease of integration, and is compatible with any application designed for existing KDC models. The scanner is certified by Apple for use with iOS devices and is also compatible with Android, Blackberry, Mac, and Windows devices.
Measuring a scant 38mm wide by 84mm long and 18mm thin, the Bluetooth scanner offers more than 10,000 scans per charge. This highly configurable device includes four buttons: scan, up, down (for controlling Bluetooth connections and remotely activating soft keyboards), and a delete key. Custom features are available, including a vibrating option and backup battery for the real time clock.
“KOAMTAC products have long been appreciated for their seamless smartphones/tablets integration,” said George Powell, President and CEO of Code Corporation. “Code engineers have raised the bar in scan engines with the CR8000 dual optical fields, 2D scan engine and we are thrilled to integrate our technology into KOAMTAC products.”
“With the KDC30, we have ushered in a new level of sophistication in industrial design. KOAMTAC products have long been appreciated for their ultra-miniature size, timeless classic shape and iconic 4-line OLED display,” stated Dr. Hanjin Lee, President and CEO of KOAMTAC. “But many of today’s applications rely solely on the display of the smart device with which theKDC is paired. So we have removed our display and have created a form that blends harmoniously with today’s beautiful smart devices from Apple and Samsung.”
For offline data capture, the KDC30 has ample memory capable of holding up to 10,000 barcodes. The KDC30 is now available through the company’s worldwide distribution channels or at www.koamtacstore.com with a starting MSRP of $449 (USD).

Due to the large number of requests we received from our customers, our newest VeriScan Online version now includes offline groups and signature capture.
VeriScan Online version 5.0 is available directly in the Apple App Store. VeriScan Online works with your Apple mobile device, iPad, or Desktop computer. With these new features, you can now download your groups (VIP, Banned, etc.) onto your device and use them offline without internet connection. This will help you take full advantage of VeriScan Online’s full range of features when using it in offline mode by letting you organize your customers into customizable groups.
For the iPad version of VeriScan Online, we’ve integrated the ability to upload a custom document or agreement form, have your visitors sign it using their finger, and print out the document using a Bluetooth-connected printer. This functionality was already available in our VeriScan HD Pro iPad App, and we’ve now extended it to VeriScan Online as well.
VeriScan Online has received a lot of praise and positive feedback from our customers, so we are continuing to invest heavily in the development of this product. If you have any suggestions on how we can make it better, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly at [email protected]
You’ve experienced it before. A customer comes to your nightclub, spends a lot of money, and a week later issues a chargeback through their credit card company. This phenomenon is a result of something called “buyer’s remorse”, and it affects thousands of clubs all over the country on a weekly basis.
Chargebacks directly hurt your business’s bottom line and lead to a significant loss on your books. With chargebacks becoming a frequent occurrence in the nightclub industry, how do we protect ourselves from these costly transactions?
Here at IDFalcon, we developed a fully integrated system that helps you keep track of visitors and prove that they were on your premises. We integrated ID scanning, image capture, fingerprinting, and electronic signature into a system that is still easy-to-use, fast and efficient, and most importantly, effective.
Crazy Horse III in Las Vegas found VeriScan Plus and the M-280 scanner to have an immediate impact on their club’s operations. By utilizing it at the VIP section of their club, Crazy Horse III is able to quickly capture all of the customer’s credentials and information to protect themselves from fraud and chargebacks. The system is also fast and efficient, which allowed them to still deliver an extremely high level of customer service and an excellent customer experience.
Many of our customers have championed that the major benefit of VeriScan Plus and the M-280 is the ability to capture three forms of identification in fewer than 5 seconds – customer information (name, age, gender, address, etc.), a picture of the person, and an image of their driver’s license and credit card. We also integrated fingerprinting and electronic signature as an additional level of security to guarantee that customers cannot issue a chargeback.
Chargebacks are costly, but they don’t have to hurt your club. With our new system, chargebacks are a thing of the past. Stop “buyer’s remorse” and start fighting chargebacks.

Check out our most recent case study in i.Business Magazine!
Minneapolis, MN: Several bars, nightclubs, and restaurants in Minneapolis discovered that the same customers continually go door to door and cause all of their businesses’ problems. To eliminate this issue, these business owners began looking for a way to work together to keep the 1% of their customers that cause 95% of their incidents off their premises.
The best solution they found was a mobile app called VeriScan Online from IDScan.net, which allows businesses to share lists and instantly ban patrons from their establishments. Through this cloud-based solution, if a patron is kicked out or banned at one establishment and tries to go to another one, the owner will immediately receive a SMS or email notification upon swiping the person’s driver’s license at the door.
Steve Hark from Aqua Club is the leader of the movement to make Minneapolis’ nightlife a more enjoyable and safer experience. Since his adoption of VeriScan Online, eight other restaurants, bars, and nightclubs started using the app and its shared list feature to keep dangerous customers from entering their premises.
IDScan.net’s VeriScan Online is a sophisticated ID verification system that provides a new standard for mobile ID scanning. Coupled with Honeywell’s industry-leading SL22 iPod/iPhone scanner, VeriScan Online turns any Apple device into a powerful ID scanning device that scans all drivers’ license from the US or Canada, verifies age, and captures data into an online data analytics dashboard.
“Our goal is to provide a mobile solution that protects business from liability and keeps their premises’ safe,” said IDScan.net’s CEO Denis Petrov. “We fully support the Minneapolis’ businesses that have started working together to keep dangerous customers away from their establishments.”
VeriScan Online with the Honeywell SL22 scanner is utilized for access control and customer relationship management. This solutions provides a full suite of features including a magnetic stripe reader, 2D barcode scanner, image capture capabilities, custom groups such as Banned and VIP, and online reporting tools. Because VeriScan Online is a cloud-based solution, it easily synchronizes information across several devices and geographical locations.
