How PatronScan Works

The Banned Patrons List

PatronScan has the largest Banned Patrons List in North America. There are over 20,000 banned patrons who have been ejected or denied entry for violence, sexual assault, stealing, drugs, and fake IDs. When a banned patron tries to enter your venue, you will receive an alert message with the duration of the ban, and the details of why they were banned, so venue staff can decide whether to allow or deny entry.

Fake ID Detection

PatronScan will analyze every ID scanned to determine whether it is a valid ID or a possible fake ID. The PatronScan library contains over 3,600 government issued IDs from around the world, including all driver’s licenses and passports. Our ID scanner for bars can spot fake IDs in less than 3 seconds.

Stop ID Passing

The PatronScan ID scanner will notify you if an ID is scanned more than once. ID passing is a common way for underage patrons to enter a licensed venue. One patron will enter with their own ID, and then find a way to pass their ID to a younger sibling or friend, who then uses that ID to enter.

PatronScan ID scanners will alert you when an ID is used more than once, and provide the live image from the person who used that ID the first time, so you can compare and easily spot ID passing.

Stunning Reports

PatronScan reports provides you with insightful and easy to read information about the activity of the patrons in your venue. Find out their demographics, where they came from, how many are repeat visitors, and how many men vs women are entering your venue.

Making good decisions requires good information. Sophisticated venue managers know how to grow their business, and they use ID scanners to collect information about their patrons and improve their business.
