Why You Need Touchless Credit Card and ID Reading During COVID-19

by | Sep 3, 2020

COVID-19 has ravaged our lives, leaving us in uncertain and unprecedented times. During these times, you need to be doing all you can to ensure that your employees and your customers are as safe as possible. One of the best ways to do this is by avoiding as much contact as possible. OCR’s CaptureMax ID reading software allows you to pull up relevant information through a touchless service with a card or document. 

Protect Your Employees and the Customer

According to the FDA, it is possible for COVID-19 to be transmitted through surfaces, including credit and debit cards, IDs, passports, and other documents. While it’s not the main way the virus is transmitted, it’s still a cause for concern, especially if your job requires the frequent exchange of documents. OCR’s CaptureMax ID reading software can help protect both your employees and your customers. 

Using our software on a mobile device allows you to scan IDs directly into any system and extract their information in 3 seconds or less. The information is retained in a database for later retrieval and you can mark the user’s status such as VIP, Banned, etc.

Peace of Mind

The number one thing touchless credit card and ID reading software can provide during these uncertain times is peace of mind. You want to be sure that your employees and customers feel comfortable every time they’re in your place of work. This means taking the steps necessary to ensure their safety. 

If a potential customer walks into your store and doesn’t feel safe, the chances are incredibly low that you will see repeat business with that customer. Touchless reading software not only makes the customer feel safe, but it also shows that you care about their well being and safety. Your customer will remember this in the future when they need a service or product in your industry. 

Work More Efficiently

On top of avoiding contact, one of the best ways to limit the spread of the virus is by avoiding any potential exposure. This means all of your systems need to be operating as efficiently as possible to ensure customers and employees aren’t spending more time exposed than needed. Our CaptureMax software provides some of the most accurate and the fastest results on the market. Our software supports reading the following document types:

  • Driver License
  • Underage ID’s

All of OCR’s software versions have the ability to save the ID, Face, and Signature Image. The cloud database version displays them in an organized manner that allows a clear view of the image.

Easy Integration

You will be able to scan an image with a mobile device and automatically synchronize it with the Cloud Database.
