The Best Passport and ID Scanner and Why

by | Jan 7, 2019

Security is normally the last thing considered when it comes to business, but that has changed. Banks, airports, and even places of employment all have increased surveillance. ID scanning, in particular, has been a popular solution whether it is for controlled access to facilities, streamlined visitor check-in/check-out, or even cataloging individuals in databases.

By implementing an ID scanning solution, you make your business agile and secure. However, there are many considerations that must be made before selecting the best product.

Selecting a Solution

When selecting an ID scanning solution, there are many things you want to consider before making a decision. Some things to think about include cost, size, scalability, functionality, customization, and ease of use. Some businesses may simply need an ID scanner for entry control, while others may use it to track training participation or even hours worked for non-salaried employees.  

In a single organization, you can have many different user requirements for an ID scanner solution. The level of complexity can become overwhelming and expensive rather quickly. OCR Solutions ID scanners address all of these concerns.

Why OCR Solutions?

Some big setbacks for companies considering ID scanning solutions include size and cost. The compact size of our scanners allow for mobility throughout an organization and can easily be configured to work on a laptop. OCR’s SabreCam series have no “moving parts” and all captures are performed digitally within seconds.  When combined with the idMax software, the ability to easily read different IDs and passports from around the world combined with a small footprint scanner.

For businesses that require versatility and customization, a Software Development Kit (SDK) is available for cloud, server, mobile and local solutions. We support various operating systems:

  • Windows 32
  • Windows 64
  • Mac
  • Linux
  • iOS
  • Android

By taking advantage of our flexible SDK, software integration is incredibly easy. This makes the ID scanners incredibly versatile and scalable.

The SDK is capable of reading and extracting data from US IDs and passports from many different countries. Because the idMax SDK is also system independent, it allows you to tailor your requirements with any TWAIN-compliant scanner. This is a feature not many ID scanning solutions are able to provide, and as a result able to take most third-party scanners and integrate them with idMax.
