PDC Showcases Its Enhanced AgeBand System at the International Association of Assembly Managers
AgeBand Provides Defensible Action Against Underage Drinking
San Fernando, CA (July 16, 2005) – Precision Dynamics Corporation (PDC), a global leader in automatic wristband identification, will showcase the new version of its AgeBand ™ Age/ID Verification System during the International Association of Assembly Managers (IAAM) Conference in Washington, D.C., July 16 – 18.
The consequences of underage drinking can have devastating effects to both venue owners and patrons alike. Liquor license holders risk losing their business by selling alcohol to underage patrons or by allowing the use of fake IDs; worse yet, an underage drinker who is driving drunk from a venue can potentially end his/her and other’s lives. To help thwart the use of fraudulent IDs that lead to underage drinking, PDC introduced AgeBand.
AgeBand has been significantly enhanced to better meet the needs of businesses that serve alcohol. The system verifies the authenticity of driver’s licenses and other IDs using special software developed in conjunction with the departments of motor vehicles’ credential testing labs. The system scans the magnetic stripe or 2-dimensional barcode of an ID and instantly prints an AgeBand Wristband with pertinent patron information including, “Age ID Verified 21.”
New AgeBand features include:
- Sleek, portable control module with advanced touch-screen display which is optimized for outdoor use.
- Management Software facilitates the collection of demographic information, report generation, customization of wristband design, and added control of patron database.
- Compatible with Smart AgeBand® & Smart™ Kiosk for cashless payment options using RFID.
- Network functionality of AgeBand systems allow for fast and easy control from one main control module.
- Sturdy mobile cart design accommodates control module, printer, keyboard, and wristband/battery storage.
“Businesses that serve alcohol to minors risk substantial fines and criminal penalties, including losing their license,” states Victor LaRosa , PDC RFID & Age/ID Manager. “AgeBand is an effective and easy-to-use system that practically eliminates these risks, while providing several other benefits, not only verifying the patron’s age, but also instantly printing a wristband that is used as added visual identification while inside a club, bar, or other venue.”
