“Our customers inspired us to provide a solution and we did.” – Denis Petrov, speaking on’s newest product, a touchless temperature scanner

Neither Denis Petrov and Andrey Stanovnov nor their New Orleans-based tech company,, are new — the company was formed by the Russian natives in 2003 — but the challenge it solves has grown particularly more relevant in the time of COVID-19.’s core technology allows organizations a completely touch-free way to swipe an individual’s ID in order to gather information and verify it within seconds and with 100% accuracy. The technology, which has been approved by the TSA and FBI, can also be tailored to provide additional information, such as the ability to run IDs against watch lists and biometric analytics.

The technology has gained traction in healthcare facilities, government agencies, casinos, nightclubs, law enforcement, schools and nonprofits, resulting in the company regularly achieving annual double-digit growth and moving last fall into a 4,300-square-foot space at UNO Research and Technology Park.

Always innovating, Petrov and Stanovnov used the COVID-19 shutdown to develop their latest technology, something they’re calling IRT 1, Infrared Thermometer One — a mobile and compact facial recognition device that reads a person’s temperature within moments with an accuracy of within .2 degrees Fahrenheit.

“It even works if someone is wearing a mask,” said Petrov. “Our customers inspired us to provide a solution and we did.” has also been working with Rouses Markets to create a tech solution to help curb the abuse of the company’s return policy by using ID software to identify those making returns and linking all of Rouses Markets to one database.
