NEW ORLEANS (PRWEB) November 06, 2019
New Orleans-based technology company IDScan.net is not just growing in market share, but also in square-footage. The leading developer of identity verification and information gathering technologies is expanding its footprint within the University of New Orleans Research and Technology Park, where it is headquartered.
Its most recent growth has taken IDScan.net from its early startup days when co-founders Denis Petrov and Andrey Stanovnov, CEO and CTO, respectively, have grown from their beginnings in a garage to over 4,300 square feet of prime office space.
This growth is particularly satisfying to Petrov, a native of Russia who graduated from UNO and gained not just an education but somewhere to put down roots and the right place to establish a technology company.
“New Orleans provided me with inspiration, opportunity, and a home like no other. It also provided a fertile ground supportive of startups that allowed our company to develop, prosper and provide much needed services around the world,” Petrov said.
As they add clients, employees, and new technologies, IDScan.net never forgets the environment in which it got its start.
“My time in the New Orleans startup community made me certain I was in the right place to develop a leading-edge technology and share it with the rest of the world,” said Petrov. “Increasing our footprint in our hometown is a tribute to our city and its spirit.”
IDScan.net’s office expansion mirrors the growth of its workforce, product line, and annual revenue. Its solutions are being deployed worldwide across industries, from gaming and hospitality to retail, finance, and education.
Its core technology allows organizations to simply swipe an individual’s ID to harvest information and verify it within seconds and with 100 percent accuracy. The solutions can be tailored and paired with a variety of added layers of identity verification, including the ability to run IDs against watch lists and biometric analytics. Its solutions have been approved by the TSA and FBI.
As the first to market with mobile iOS and Android ID scanning capabilities, IDScan.net continues to develop new technologies in an ever-expanding suite of off-the-shelf and enterprise solutions, including facial recognition.
“It is amazing to see where IDScan.net started versus where it is now,” said Mike Eckert, the former president and CEO of the Weather Channel who chairs the NOLA Angel Network and is an advisor to IDScan.net. “The stage is set for IDScan.net to continue its upward trajectory and expansion. It is providing solutions that the public and private sector will need more and more as identity and biometric technologies become increasingly ingrained in our everyday lives.”
Since its founding, IDScan.net has been an active participant in the New Orleans tech ecosystem, advancing through The Idea Village and Launch Pad.
“New Orleans is consistently named as one of the leading tech hubs in North America, and IDScan.net both typifies and is helping to drive that success,” said Michael Hecht, the CEO of GNO, Inc., the region’s official economic development organization. “IDScan.net is a case study in how a home-grown NOLA tech company can scale to become an international industry leader.”
Based in New Orleans, IDScan.net is a leading developer of identity verification and information gathering technologies. With a mission of creating a safer and smarter world, the company has enhanced environments and experiences for over 7,000 clients including IBM, Shell, AMC Theaters, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Dave & Busters, and many more of the world’s most trusted brands.
