Hospitality Insurance Group Partners with Intellicheck to Offer Age ID to Clients
MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 13, 2018--Intellicheck (NYSE AMERICAN: IDN), an industry leader in identification authentication solutions, today announced the signing of a partnership agreement with Hospitality Insurance Group, a liquor liability insurance company. Under the agreement, Hospitality Insurance Group is offering high-technology identification authentication and age verification app Age ID™ to its clients. Age ID authenticates driver licenses and other forms of identification to prevent the use of altered and fake IDs.
Hospitality Insurance Group President Richard Welch, Jr. said, “We are taking this important step because of our commitment to the hospitality industry and our belief that age verification is vital to preventing underage access to alcohol. Our clients are residents as well as business members of their communities, so they understand the important responsibility to do their part to prevent underage drinking and the tragic consequences that often accompanies it.” Hospitality Insurance Group clients who adopt Age ID will be given a discount on their insurance premiums for stepping up their commitment to preventing the sale of age-restricted products to minors.
Based in Southborough, Massachusetts, Hospitality Insurance Group provides liquor liability insurance coverage for establishments in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont. The company provides coverage to owners of establishments that serve or sell liquor including bars, taverns, restaurants, social clubs and liquor stores, as well as caterers and other qualified businesses.
Intellicheck President and CEO Bryan Lewis said Age ID will serve the insurance group’s clients well. “Age ID is a proven, powerful identification authentication and age verification solution. We are confident it will provide the same demonstrated effectiveness for Hospitality Insurance Group’s clients that it does for hundreds of businesses as well as law enforcement and regulatory compliance agencies across the country. With sophisticated fake IDs making old school methods of detecting fake IDs ineffective and obsolete, Hospitality Insurance Group is taking a leadership role that will make an invaluable difference in addressing the challenges of preventing underage access to alcoholic beverages and assuring its clients’ regulatory compliance.”
Age ID authenticates IDs and verifies age information in real-time with 99.9% accuracy. It is quickly and easily deployed on mobile devices including smartphones and tablets and can be integrated with point-of-sale solutions. The affordable, cutting-edge technology solution draws on a comprehensive, proprietary database, updated on an ongoing basis, to ensure information is timely and accurate.
