With so many ID scanners on the market, how do you know which one to choose that will keep your business as safe as possible? Getting an ID scanner for the sole reason of detecting a fake ID is not worth the investment for a number of reasons. First, fake IDs are so good now that chances are excellent a fake ID will get past a scanner. Second, anyone who is underage and trying to sneak into a club is most likely going to be your best behaved customer in order to not draw attention to themselves. Third, you are already paying a bouncer to check IDs, and giving them technology that is solely intended to do the same thing has the potential to lead to negative results.
The most dangerous result is that your bouncer starts relying on the ID scanner so much that they don’t take the time to verify the person presenting the ID is the actual person on the ID.
The main goal of a security team is to prevent problems from occurring that put your patrons and your business at risk.
Now, if you had an ID scanner that provided information on any violation a customer has committed, arrest reports and a challenge question to ask if your bouncers thought the person was underage – that would be much more valuable than just having a scanner that maybe determines if an ID is fake.
This is where Bar Shield ID Scanner comes in.
Bar Shield displays customer violation information and arrest information in addition to assisting in detecting fake IDs.
Bar Shield is a cloud based ID scanner that connects every bar, nightclub, lounge, concert venue, hotel and other venues together to share customers’ “Bar Records” in real time along with legal records shared by the police department when arrests occur on an establishment’s property.
With Bar Shield, you will know if a customer has committed any of the following violations at any location in the Bar Shield network prior to entering:
Used a fake ID
Become over intoxicated/belligerent
Groped or harassed patrons
Been vulgar or rude to staff
Started a fight
Participated in a fight
Displayed or used a weapon
Stolen items from the establishment or patrons
Been banned from any other Bar Shield establishment
Caused property damage
Bar Shield eliminates the ability of problem patrons to continually enter popular bars and nightclubs, and patrons previously kicked out will never enter venues again without the venue’s knowledge.
