TIPS Alcohol Training Program Brings Out ID Verification App
Aug 23, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Health Communications, providers of the TIPS (Training for Intervention Procedures) Program, announced the release of the TIPS Mobile ID Guide.
According to a release, as part of TIPS training, participants learn to verify the authenticity of an ID, a task that has become more challenging as fake IDs have become more sophisticated. The TIPS Mobile ID Guide is a mobile, digital ID catalog that displays images and unique features of IDs from all 50 states, Canada, Puerto Rico, and more. With the app, servers and sellers, bartenders, law enforcement, and others can, through a couple of taps on their mobile devices, quickly and efficiently verify the authenticity of any ID. The new app is available in both Apple and Android versions.
Health Communications noted that the app displays front and back images for each ID and highlights features that can be used during verification checks such as ultra violet (UV) components, microprint, laser perforation, tactile patterns, and more. In addition, the Mobile ID Guide offers quarterly updates to ensure that users have access to the most current IDs.
"There is no better way to check the authenticity of an ID than by physically examining it. By having accurate and up-to-date information about the unique features of IDs, servers and sellers will be able to make an informed decision when a guest presents an unfamiliar ID," said Trevor Estelle, Vice President of Sales & Marketing with The TIPS Program. "Determining if an ID is valid can be one of the toughest yet most important responsibilities a server or seller of alcohol will face. There are many strategies they can use to make certain that their guests are of legal age. The TIPS Mobile ID Guide is another tool to put in the box," Estelle added.
Health Communications is a company focusing on the field of alcohol server training.
