JERICHO, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--North Carolina’s New Hanover County ABC (Alcohol Beverage Control) Board is now using Intellicheck's (NYSE AMERICAN: IDN) Age ID™ at all its county liquor stores to prevent the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors. The ABC Board’s decision to expand the usage of Age ID follows the impressive results the state-of-the-art technology solution has been delivering in spotting fake IDs in its initial usage at three store locations. Age ID scans the bar codes on driver licenses and other forms of identification to catch altered and fake IDs.
“Age ID has made a terrific difference in helping us keep alcohol out of the hands of minors because it’s been so effective in catching fake IDs. We had such outstanding results that we made the decision to use Age ID at our eight retail stores across the county,” said Retail & LBD Operations Manager Charles Hill.
The New Hanover County ABC Board was established in 1935. Located in Wilmington, North Carolina, the community is also home to the University of North Carolina, Wilmington and its more than 15,000 students. The board’s mission includes a mandate to support efforts to ensure the legal sale and control of alcoholic beverages.
“We’re responsible for our residents and the young people attending the university here and we’re seeing the same problems that every community has to deal with because the sophisticated fake IDs that young people can get their hands on so easily are virtually impossible to spot with the methods we used to use. Age ID has solved that problem,” explained Hill.
“The results of our partners at the New Hanover County ABC Board are a source of tremendous pride and offers yet another example of Age ID’s success in addressing a pressing market need. The growing traction of our proven technology solution points to tremendous opportunities for the future,” said Intellicheck Interim CEO Bill White.
Age ID reads the data encoded on driver licenses and government issued IDs, verifying the authenticity of the ID credential and age information in real-time. It can quickly and easily be deployed on mobile devices including smartphones and tablets and can be integrated with point-of-sale solutions. Age ID draws on a comprehensive database, updated on an ongoing basis, to ensure information is timely and accurate. It provides the most up-to-date solution to the problem of spotting fake and altered IDs delivering 99.9% accuracy as it reads unique DMV barcode formats from every U.S. state and populated territory, all Canadian provinces, and all Mexican States where driver licenses include 2-D barcodes.
