16 Great Benefits Identiscans Drivers License Scanner Offers

Identiscan is the future of access control

As society becomes increasingly digitized, more and more tasks that were once done manually are now being done through the use of technology. One such task is the authentication and data capture of drivers license barcodes for uncompromised access control and visitor management. In many cases, a drivers licence scanner is the most efficient and secure way to verify someone’s identity. Not only does a drivers license scanner avoid the need for manual entry of data, but it also helps to prevent identity theft by securely storing all information in one place. Access to the information and data is guarded in terms of the South Africa POPI act.

With so much data being accessed and stored online, it is more important than ever to ensure that this data is kept safe and secure. Identiscan cloud storage is able to do this.

Fast and easy Convenience

Identiscan is a device that can be used to scan the barcode on a drivers licence. This can be used to verify the identity of the person who is holding the licence. The scanner can also be used to store the information from the licence in a database. This information can then be used for verification purposes or for other purposes such as marketing or demographic analysis.

In the past, many organizations have used a traditional desktop scanner with a flatbed to scan driver’s license barcodes. However, this type of scanner has several limitations: it doesn’t provide flexibility for environments where either scanning from a fixed position is impractical or there are frequent placement changes; it also can be inconvenient when space is limited at the point of capture. In addition, a fixed scanner requires individuals to come to the scanner, placing workers in a vulnerable position when faced with an unknown individual.

Revolutionary Approach

Identiscan’s revolutionary approach combines advanced networking capabilities and a suite API’s that are able to provide a real-time view into customer information and business operations across organizations. By utilizing Identiscan image acquisition terminal with a built-in network connection, organizations can benefit from an entirely new way of managing assets and data capture that is flexible enough to adapt to variable workflows. From the outset, our engineers set about designing security of data as the most important component.

Core Technology

Identiscan’s core technology – its advanced image capturing device – enables the full optical character recognition (OCR) functionality at the point of capture, creating an uncompromised authentication process that is quick, easy and accurate and the device enables organizations to collect driver’s license barcodes with total accuracy for secure access control, visitor management or other purposes requiring unattended data collection at any location. The highest level of security is employed in all our our systems.

Unique Platform built by South Africans for South Africans

A digital picture of the card is taken with Identiscan ‘s device and then processed by Identiscan ‘s advanced OCR technology. This advanced OCR is only possible with Identiscan ‘s unique platform, which enables the device to process many different types of fonts (including foreign characters) and formats (ID cards in landscape or portrait). The time it takes to complete this task is significantly reduced for increased productivity. Speak to us about a bespoke API for your own ID management software. Security is at core of our design.


Unlock the turnstile or raise the boom
Bluelock is a company that has developed a hand held device that can be used to control booms, gates and turnstiles directly from within the Identiscan system. This allows organisations to manage access to their premises quickly and easily, without the need for manual input. The Identiscan system is also able to record the time and date of each entry, providing a detailed audit trail.


The Identiscan system is able to read vehicle number plates using LPR tecnology and compare them against a list of authorised vehicles. If the number plate is not on the list, the boom, gate or turnstile will not open. This prevents unauthorised access to the premises, this forcing non residents to be correcty processed. Driver security is enhanced as there is no need to open the car window.

Networking Capability

The image acquistion device, (PM80) is installed with advanced networking capabilities to provide IT administrators with a real-time view into customer information and business operations across organizations. The information is stored securely in line with South African POPI law. Security of your data if paramount.

This technology can be used in a variety of ways: vehicle registration renewal, visitor management, access control, catering staffing and so on.

Authentication


The authentication process is completely transparent to the end user. The terminal automatically processes driver’s licenses with or without existing data on file. If there is existing data on file, it is simply updated by the device. If not, the driver’s license information can be saved for future use during a subsequent visit.

Extended battery life


In addition to its small size, the device has a battery-powered docking station that allows for up to 14 hours of continuous operation without the need to be plugged into a power source. This ensures maximum operational flexibility even in remote areas where electric outlets may not be readily available.
