Less Typing, More Reliable Data with ID Scanning Software

Smart ID scanning software speeds up processes for employees and customers, reduces human error, and creates a reliable audit trail.

Age Verification for Restricted Goods

It’s fast and simple to confirm the age of a buyer before purchase or delivery. Simply scan identity documents when handing over controlled goods, such as alcohol. All data is encrypted and processing happens on the device to provide a secure service for your customers.

Cross-Border Travel

Airline and cruise employees can scan passports on smart devices during check-in or at gates. Boarding is faster and more flexible, with shorter queues and a more personalized service. Human error is reduced and the software verifies document authenticity by reading the RFID chip on ePassports.

Proof of Delivery

Many deliveries now require signatures and ID checks to ensure the secure handover of goods and documents. ID scanning enabled apps speed up the process and provide a reliable audit trail for delivery services.

Customer & Employee App Onboarding

Onboarding new or seasonal workers, such as delivery drivers, accommodation hosts or taxi drivers, is easy. Scan identity documents and confirm relevant details, such as if they are a registered driver. Customers can also be easily onboarded for loyalty schemes with a simple ID scan directly from their own mobile device.
