ID System Validates Authenticity of State and Provincial Driver Licenses
San Jose, CA (April 17, 2006) - STOPware, Inc., the industry's leading developer of visitor management systems, is taking the lead in preparing their customers to meet federal government requirements for verification of identity documents such as state and provincial driver licenses by adding Intelli-Check's (AMEX: IDN) identification/verification technology to its expanding product portfolio.
Effective immediately, the ID verification technology from Intelli-Check, Inc. will be available as will the optional hardware for reading the encoded information on these documents with STOPware's PassagePoint Professional or Enterprise Visitor Management software systems.
"Unlike other ID scanning devices available on the market, Intelli-Check technology with the DCM/2 module is capable of confirming the authenticity of a government-issued identification document. This is a crucial delineating feature for us," said Paul Terschuren, VP Sales and Marketing, STOPware, A Brady People ID Business. "With the addition of Intelli-Check's software to our product line, we can offer a more complete visitor management solution to those facilities and customers who must abide by the federal regulations."
Terschuren adds the DCM/2's small footprint and easy operation make it an ideal complement to the PassagePoint visitor management software. "There's no modification required to install the scanner into existing systems and as a self-contained device it can be easily added to the visitor desk or unattended visitor registration kiosk," he noted.
The DCM/2 reads the 2D bar code (PDF 417) as well as the triple track magnetic stripe from government issued drivers' licenses, military and other identity documents, decodes the information and transmits the data via RS232 to a variety of models of PCs, laptops, PDAs, credit and POS terminals. The scanner can also read any encoded data with the 2D bar code such as the photo identification which is currently encoded on the Kentucky and Rhode Island driver licenses.
According to Frank Mandelbaum, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of
Intelli-Check, the collaboration of the two applications is yet another example of Intelli-Check's technology reach. "We believe our identification verification system is a key element in ensuring the overall integrity of a physical security strategy," he said. "By offering the Intelli-Check ID verification system with STOPware's highly intelligent software, the level of security at the front door can be dramatically increased."
Much more than a visitor enrollment system, STOPware's visitor management software solutions deliver powerful performance and reporting functions for unprecedented levels of security control. In addition to being compatible with most IT infrastructures and databases (including SQL and Oracle-based systems), this sophisticated software also allows integration with other security technologies such as access control & security cameras for a fully integrated security solution. Other first line of defense tactics available in the PassagePoint software include screening visitors against historical directories, tracking citizenship and passport information and multiple authorization levels to allow security to approve or reject visitor requests prior to arrival.
