Mobile ID Reading

by | Jan 1, 2016 | Blog, ID Scanning

A few years ago when somebody told me that they want to use their phone and take a picture of an ID and extract it’s data from the front using OCR, I thought that would never happen. Boy was I wrong and here I am to say that our company OCR Solutions is one of the first pioneers of scanning ID’s, passports and other documents in the cloud. The idMax Cloud server was created over a year ago and we are constantly breaking new ground on our capabilities of reading the front and back of a drivers license.

How does it work? idMax Cloud server works as a service, just send ID card images to the server and it will parse out all the information. The system is so flexible that it can be used by anyone or integrated into other software using our software development kit (SDK). Just take a picture of an ID from a mobile phone camera, send it to our server and extract the data into virtually any application. Most mobile applications try to do the OCR or extract data on the mobile phone itself, this takes up a lot of space on your phone and has a lower accuracy rate. OCR has taken a different approach with our idMax cloud server by doing all the heavy lifting on our powerful servers and sending the data back to you very fast. The process of extracting data from the front of an ID is seconds! Something that we recently thought was impossible has come to life.

idMax  is the most advanced mobile ID reading system on the market. To see more detail on the system please visit our website –
