Press Release: Helzberg Diamonds signed an agreement with Intellicheck Mobilisa, a leader in ID verification and wireless technology, to implement its ID Check ® software across its 230 U.S. retail locations. 

Helzberg Diamonds, a Berkshire Hathaway company, will use the ID Check to analyze and authenticate driver’s licenses at its point-of-sale to reduce the risk of fraudulent purchases. In addition, by automatically populating customer data fields on applications for the Helzberg Diamonds credit card, the system will improve accuracy and shorten completion time for the customer credit applications.

“For 100 years, we have provided customers with superior service and high-quality jewelry; we look forward to implementing ID Check in our retail locations to reduce fraud and enhance the customer experience,” said Beryl Raff, the chairman and CEO at Helzberg Diamonds.

William Roof, the CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa, said, “There is a growing need for effective identification verification technology among retailers, including those selling high-end luxury goods. We are honored to be working with Helzberg Diamonds, a very well-established retailer of fine jewelry.”

System integration and implementation of ID Check is expected to begin immediately.
