QikID’s QikPASS system is a solution to promotion and identity management, currently applied to clubs, pubs and other venues which need to market their services and to control patron access in the interests of safety and security. In this application, it is only available to venues which have a legal right to deny access.
QikID provides venue operators with the ability to identify and communicate with patrons without having to record their names or contact details, with the accompanying risk of misuse of customer records (this has become a sensitive and high profile privacy issue). With QikID, venues can quickly and efficiently process entrants at the door, while flagging patrons for special treatment – either positively, such as VIP or favoured status, or negatively – to identify and potentially exclude those with a record of antisocial behaviour.
Individuals enrol with QikID and receive a QikPASS token (card), which they can then present at participating venues. Using a mobile phone application, venue staff can scan a patron’s QikPASS and take their photo, confirming their identity by use of facial recognition technology.
