With the IdScan® OCR ID software from CSSN, TWAIN complaint scanners can be converted into an ID scanning powerhouse. This ID OCR software recognizes, reads and extracts data from driver licenses from all 50 states as well as a wide variety of international ID cards. Other personal cards can also be easily scanned including passports and business cards. The IdScan® OCR software is able to extract both the data and the images of a card including the full image of the card, or the face and signature images. This leading software is also capable of duplex scanning when used with a duplex scanner which means that a card’s printed information can be read from both sides of the card simultaneously. IdScan® OCR software is also capable of reading the barcodes and magnetic strips of cards. With this ability, vital information of guests is automatically registered including their picture and any guests that are checking-in or embarking on a journey, can be identified within seconds.

ID document information can be scanned and processed with the touch of a button with the IdScan® OCR software from CSSN. This software auto detects card and photo insertion and instantly scans the ID card and processes all the information. Using three technologies for verification, IdScan® is able to check the authenticity of any ID card. The extracted data is then automatically imported into 3rd party applications.

IdScan® OCR software can be implemented as standalone or with CSSN’s comprehensive OCR SDK (Software Developer Kit), users are able to easily incorporate this reading technology directly into their existing software application.

The IdScan® OCR software is available with a wide range of compatible CSSN Snapshell® and Scanshell® scanners, and customers have the option of selecting a scanner based on their specific requirements.
