Las Vegas, Nevada - Bar Shield™ Inc., will showcase its first-to-market, real-time, cloud-based ID scanner and customer management database at the Nightclub and Bar Show, March 25 - 26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bar Shield™ staff will be offering special in-show discounts and hands-on demonstrations.


Bar Shield™ provides venues with information that allows staff to be proactive in dealing with potential problem patrons.  This information will give establishments a greater ability to avoid reputation-damaging incidents.

“After reviewing this product, I endorse it as a best practice that establishments can choose to use to increase their oversight and compliance”. Carl Gloede, Captain of Police: Central District, City of Madison Police Department, Madison, WI.

Bar Shield™ scans IDs from all 50 states and displays that person’s “bar record.” The establishment will immediately know if the patron has been tagged by any venue in the Bar Shield™ network. Infractions such as fighting, theft, use of weapons, harassment, use of fake IDs and more are displayed. Comments and pictures may be added to provide more information, and specific records can be emailed to third parties such as police or staff members if a major violation occurs.

“It is with best practices, like Bar Shield, that establishments can protect themselves and their business from potential problems. These types of interventions go a long way in the eyes of the city when determining good, responsible operators.”  Mark Woulf, Alcohol License Review Committee Chairman, Madison, WI

“At Bar Shield™, we wanted to solve a problem that every public venue faces-- not knowing whether the patrons coming through the door are likely to behave themselves or cause problems,” says Matt Brink, founder, president and CEO. "Our exclusive patron management software is powered by a first-to-market cloud database which provides real time patron infraction information to all members of the Bar Shield™ Network."

Bar Shield™ is available for download from the iTunes App Store and includes a free, 2-week limited functionality trial. A monthly subscription is required for full functionality. An available laser scanner is recommended for instantaneous scanning of all IDs in every available format including magnetic strip, 2D bar code/PDF 417 and code 128. Be sure to watch the getting started video for easy setup.
