How to capture data from driving licenses with just a cell phone

Officers need the tools to remain agile, mobile and aware at all times, but too often they are being held back by time-consuming and tedious tasks.

Saving time and avoiding mistakes
Processing ID’s manually is not just mundane and time consuming, it’s a hotbed for human error. There are many causes of typing mistakes such as stress, fatigue and distraction. And police officers have more exposure to these factors than most people.
It only takes one typing mistake for ID data to be corrupted. But in laboratory settings, Anyline scan accuracy is over 99%. This is a huge improvement on the data collection accuracy of people. What’s more, our scanning tools are tailored to work in demanding environments, and can collect data in any location and in all conditions.
Any place, any time, even offline.
With just their cell phones, officers can perform scans at all roadside locations. They can then connect directly to their police database to get live information during traffic stops or routine checks. With our offline functionality, it will even work in underground parking lots or any other location with weak or zero signal. When connection is reestablished, officers can safely upload their scan data.
Secure data gathering – and no cloud transfers.
Police officers know that not all data is created equal. When it comes to recording and storing information, from ID checks to evidence collection, security is paramount.
That’s why when you scan with Anyline, no data is sent to the cloud where it can be intercepted or corrupted. This makes Anyline one of the most secure solutions available for collecting driving license details. Anyline scans are immediately digitally secured and documented on the cell phone, allowing the officer to upload it to a server or backend where it can be safely stored.
