Jolly and MK Data Services Partner to Check Visitors' Backgrounds
Jolly Technologies and MK Data Services have announced the integration Jolly’s Lobby Track with MK Data’s denied parties screening lists. The combined products allow users to comply with federal and international rules and regulations by screening visitors against comprehensive international lists of red-flagged, sanctioned and debarred trading partners.
Visitors, contractors and employees are enrolled in the system through a fast passport or driver’s license scan. The software logs the registration, checks the visitor against MK Data Services watch lists and potential matches are presented should they occur. E-mail notifications can be sent immediately to designated security personnel and authorities. The system keeps a record of each visitor, logs each entry and issues visually expiring visitor passes.
MK Data’s denied parties list sources include:
- U.S. Department of Commerce Unverified/Red Flagged List; European Union Sanctions List;
- United Nations Security Council Sanctions List;
- Japanese METI List;
- UK WMD List;
- Canadian Restricted Entities List;
- Australian Consolidated List;
- World Bank Debarred/Ineligible List;
- Swiss Restricted List; and
- FBI Most Wanted Lists – among others.
“Compliance with federal trade regulations through visitor screening has been a growing request from our Fortune 500 customers” said Kurt Bell, vice president of sales and marketing for Jolly Technologies. “We’re very pleased to have chosen MK Data Systems to deliver this service. Their comprehensive list not only strengthens our Fortune 500 position, but also provides solutions for foreign multinational corporations seeking trade compliance.”
“We like how seamlessly Jolly has integrated our denied party screening into their visitor registration process,” said, Ken Harris, managing partner for MK Data Services. “The receptionist scans a credential to register a visitor. The information is immediately transferred to our online service; we return the results, which are displayed on their monitor within seconds. It’s an excellent example of how to integrate our web service with 3rd party developed solutions.”
The integration is supported in Lobby Track version 5.02.
