With the marijuana boom happening all around the country and laws similar to alcohol sales regarding age requirements, we saw the need of an ID scanner designed for marijuana dispensaries
Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
DoorMetrics, Inc today introduced a major update to their iPhone application that allows users to verify and check the age of customers who are purchasing not only alcohol and tobacco but now cannabis and related products. The Colorado Edition is available as an in-app purchase and is available for download as of today.
The app’s price has also been reduced from $9.99 to $2.99 and adds the capability of scanning the barcode on a US or Canada issued ID via the built-in camera on an iPhone or iPod Touch. Without the need for additional hardware to operate, this vastly reduces the initial investment by business owners who are looking for inexpensive ways to protect their establishment from potential legal trouble resulting from employees serving an underaged person.
“With the marijuana boom happening all around the country and laws similar to alcohol sales regarding age requirements, we saw the need of an ID scanner designed for marijuana dispensaries,” says Chad Love, founder of DoorMetrics. “The DoorMetrics Colorado Edition is a first of it’s kind and will likely help businesses stay out of trouble by selling cannabis to minors. We also wanted to provide a lower cost method that was geared towards hospitality industry staff such as waiters and bartenders who already own an iPhone. At 2.99, it’s really a great way for staff to protect themselves against serving an underaged person”
DoorMetrics was initially released in 2012 with ‘under the radar’ success, quickly becoming the go to ID scanner system for more than 1000 establishments around the US and Canada. A hand-held tool for doormen, security guards, cashiers, bartenders or waitresses, DoorMetrics begins with one of two focuses: verify the age of customers while at the same time, collecting demographic data about them. Either connect a compatible device to the iPhone or by using the built in camera, a user either scans the barcode on the back of a customer’s ID or slides it through the magnetic stripe reader. The age of the person is then clearly displayed on the screen with options for inputting information such as email address, phone number, status or notes about the guest. This data can either be viewed on the device, exported in .CSV format via a wifi connection and email or deleted immediately depending on State laws.
