Product Description (Software)

Gun dealers often face the problem of maintaining a seamless customer experience while also meeting regulatory compliance for selling firearms, suppressors, and other NFA items. This is hardly surprising as these compliances is a serious subject and can divert your customer’s attention from what you are actually offering.

Customers have to mandatorily submit fingerprints for background check and licensing before purchasing firearms. Dealers, who do not have in store facility for submitting fingerprints for firearms, have to ask customers to get it done at a third party service provider who can submit fingerprints for NFA items. While meeting regulatory requirements is important, it is equally important to retain your customer and convert a customer visits into a sale. NFA fingerprinting, however, can be a hindrance to achieve it.

So how can this issue be resolved?

Instead of sending customers to a third-party service provider who can live scan and capture digital fingerprints for ATF’s new eForm system, gun stores can deploy their own live scan ATF fingerprinting software with an ATF fingerprint kit. All you need is an NFA-approved fingerprint scanner, a signature pad, and our live scan software for firearm dealers.

Bayometric’s highly efficient live scan ATF software allows firearm dealers to submit fingerprints (EFT files) for NFA items. With your own live scan ATF software and fingerprint equipment, you can cut your dependence on third-party service providers to live scan your customers. By using Bayometric’s NFA fingerprinting kit, firearm dealers can live scan and submit fingerprints electronically or print them on NFA fingerprint cards / ATF form 1 fingerprint cards.

The live scan software from Bayometric makes use of stringent quality checks before generating EFTS (Electronic Fingerprint Transmission Specification) file. EFTS file is the file which is transferred to ATF while submitting fingerprints electronically. Think of it as a digital version of a NFA fingerprint cards, but a highly secure one. With our live scan ATF software, so you can be sure that your application will not be rejected due to quality issues.

Submitting high quality live scan fingerprints for ATF compliance is only half the story. Bayometric’s live scan ATF software also gives due importance to demographic data entry. Providing accurate demographic details along with precise fingerprints are equally important as errors can lead to rejection. Bayometric’s live scan software includes intuitive and user friendly demographic data entry forms, which enables firearm dealers to quickly fill the customer details. Data entry forms have all the required validations in place so that the common data entry errors can be avoided.

Sending your customers to a third party service provider just because you do not have in-store facility for live scan firearms, can significantly impact your sales volume. Customers leaving your store may change their mind may not return at all or they can just go to your competitor’s store with in-store live scan facility.
