How To Increase The
Effectiveness And Safety
Of ID Scanning

Best Practices

Scantek ID scanners known for their efficiency, automatically check for problem patrons, maintain a 28-day customer record, and offer access to Australia’s largest national banned list, showcasing their robust ID scanning effectiveness. This minimizes the risk of anti-social incidents with minimal operator intervention.

There are, however, a few best practices that managers can use to increase the effectiveness and safety of ID scanning.

  • Bans should be limited to authorised members of staff only. In most cases, this will be the managers and owners of the venue. Police and other government authorities should also be able to recommend a ban.
  • Venues should implement a clearly defined banning policy. Additionally, this policy should specify fixed ban lengths for various offenses, accompanied by guidelines for dealing with repeat offenders.
  • Once a ban has expired, Scantek notifies the operator that the person may enter but has a previously recorded offence. This presents an opportune moment for the operator to directly address the patron regarding their behavior and to discuss the consequences of future involvement in incidents.
  • Each manager should have a different account with unique passwords. This allows Scantek to keep track of who has accessed patron data.
  • If possible, multiple terminals should be networked. This allows Scantek to share an image of the patron between terminals if they try to re-enter at a different entrance. Sharing images between terminals prevents two or more people from using the same ID.
