Switch to a paperless system and ensure you have a log of your customers in case of an inspection.

Guest List Management

Patronscan will automatically check your guests in when their ID is scanned, and give you the option to check their guests in with them. You can add, edit, or remove guests directly from the scanner, a computer, or from your phone. Patronscan updates instantly so you always know who’s on the list and who’s already shown up.

Promoter Tracking

Promoters are a great way to get more guests to your venue, why not make it easy for them? Using their phone, they can add patrons directly to your guest list, updating your scanner in the process. Of course, you’ll want to ensure that you take care of the promoters who take care of you. Track exactly how many guests arrived from each promoter so you know who your top performers are.

Challenge Questions

Experienced door staff have been using these questions for years and for a good reason; they work. We supply challenge questions that relate to the ID, but the answer can’t be found anywhere on the actual ID. We have these questions for every state, provincial and international IDs.

Stop ID Passing

The most prevalent way for minors to enter your venue is by sharing an ID. We provide an alert with a live picture, making it easy to determine whether your patron left and came back, or if you caught someone ID passing. It even works if a different type of ID is used. Driver’s license and passport? Military card and green card? We’ll catch it and keep minors out.

Confident Age Confirmation

Fines for having minors in your venue are not only costly, they’re avoidable. Using Patronscan at your front door provides easy to read visual alerts for any minors trying to enter your venue. Five bright green check marks on Patronscan confirms confident entrance for the patron. It shows they are of legal age, the ID is not expired, it is their first entrance that night, their ID is valid and they aren’t listed anywhere on the flagged list. All of this happens instantly, and automatically, making your ID check quick and easy.
