NJ Motor Vehicle Commission Deploys Bar Code Scanners for Security

Building on efforts to bring greater efficiency, fiscal responsibility, and accountability to daily operations, New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) Chief Administrator Sharon A. Harrington recently announced the completed rollout of a new Point of Service (POS) system at all New Jersey MVC Agencies. The commission describes the new POS as a modern-day cash register system similar to those found in major retail stores that provides for more secure transactions and improved financial monitoring capabilities.

The commission says that by having a "cash register" at each facility workstation. MVC customers will see more simplified transaction processing through the use of POS scanning capabilities, which allow information to be entered and calculated with the scan of a bar code. More importantly, POS also brings enhanced financial reconciliation tools that give the ability to link payment data to transaction data, perform more detailed analysis and auditing, and better identify fraudulent activity, MVC says. POS's improved financial monitoring also comes from the ability to search various pieces of data within the system. From receipt number to customer driver license number, MVC can with the new system pinpoint a specific transaction and determine the details associated with it.

MVC says that since its formation in 2003 it has made a vast number of improvements in the areas of service, safety, and security; many of which are based on the use of improved technology, this being only the latest example. From security enhanced Digital Driver Licenses (DDL) to the present overhaul of MVC's nearly 30-year-old computer system, investments in technology are helping the commission to meet its goal of becoming a model of excellence in motor vehicle services, it says.
