Stop ID Passing

You know the problem: Older cousin enters your venue using a legitimate ID, and then passes it back to the younger cousin who attempts to enter with it.

PatronScan will display a Double Scan alert every time. Catch them using the same piece of ID to enter. Catch them using different pieces of ID from the same person to enter.

If you catch someone passing their ID to a minor, you can place them on the Banned Patrons List.

Age Confirmation

Need to keep minors out of your premises? Having an ID scanner like PatronScan at your front door will help to eliminate errors and reduce the chance of consequences.

Every patron’s age is shown after the ID is scanned, and the ID scanner will notify door staff if the patron is beyond the minimum or maximum age you set.

The Flagged Patrons List

The Flagged Patrons List is a shared list of patrons who have been ejected from venues for drugs, sexual assault, fighting, theft, and other harmful behavior.

The Flagged Patrons List is shared with every other establishment using PatronScan, so if a patron is ejected from a club in your area and flagged, you will be notified if he tries to enter your establishment.

Spot Troublemakers on the List

Spotting a patron who has been placed on the Flagged Patrons List is the first line of defense. When other clubs place a patron on the Flagged Patrons List, they are alerting you that this patron has caused trouble, and you can choose whether to admit or deny entry.

Add Troublemakers to the List

Give troublemakers powerful consequences by placing them on the Flagged Patrons list when they engage in bad behavior. Patrons placed on the Flagged Patrons List will have a flag alert show every time they attempt to enter an establishment in Australia using PatronScan.

Use the Flagged Patrons List to stop patrons from causing harm in your venue.

Stop Crime in Your Venue
