How Mobile ID Scans Improve Data Quality

Mobile scanning of ID cards & documents also removes human error from your processes, which improves the quality of your data. Inaccurate data entries are a huge issue when looking at data sets.

According to one study, poor data quality can cost brands up to 6% of their revenue. Another study found that bad data was costing the US economy €3 trillion. As well as that, a 2017 study suggests that 84% of CEOs have doubts about the quality of their own data, which they use to make important decisions.

By using mobile ID verification technology, you can improve your data quality and enhance your abilities to make informed & accurate business decisions.

How a Mobile ID Scanner Optimizes UX

Not only does this streamline daily processes, but it allows those who use the technology to be more efficient & aware of their situation.

From a police officer patrolling the streets with mobile policing to keep us safe to the front desk agent of a hotel using contactless check-in technology to welcome the guests and even airline & airport agents welcoming a passenger with mobile contactless onboarding: No matter the industry, digitalizing your ID data capture process is a game-changer.

Save Time with Mobile MRZ Scanning

Instant mobile ID card scanning and mobile machine-readable zone (MRZ) scanning can significantly reduce the time it takes to complete various business processes. Primarily, this solution allows you to quickly remove typing and manual data entry from the daily routines of your workforce and customers. A mobile MRZ scanner instantly removes many hours of unnecessary working time from your workforce, saving you money while increasing productivity.

Not only is typing and manual data entry time-consuming, but it can also lead to inaccurate data entering your backend system, complicating your business processes. Removing these blind spots with mobile scanning technology will allow for a more efficient workforce, giving them further time to focus on primary responsibilities.

Scans of MRZ fields are be up to 20 times faster than entering the data from a single piece of identification manually. Multiply that by every piece of ID you are currently collecting and you will see just how much more efficient your processes can be.

Scan IDs Anywhere with Mobile Scanning Technology

Anyline’s mobile ID scanners and MRZ scanners work in any location and under all conditions thanks to our offline scanning feature, giving accurate data collection without the need for active internet access. The data processing is done on the mobile device directly while the results are then uploaded to your own backend system as soon as the device has regained a data connection if needed.

Mobile ID Scanning without Limits

As we previously mentioned, Anyline processes all the data directly on your mobile device. With data security being a priority for us, none of your data gets uploaded to third party services for processing, including our own servers. This offline scanning functionality provides increased security and offers an additional layer of protection for your data security.

This also means that you can perform scans even when you don’t have an active mobile internet or wifi connection.

With this advanced agility, your app or website can be used anywhere to scan ID documents. Your workforce can set up impromptu ID checks and your users can register for your service in any location. You can even perform instant ID scans in poorly lit locations thanks to Anyline’s automatic flashlight activation feature.

Remove Dedicated Devices From Your Processes

Many scanning processes are completed using dedicated devices, no matter the industry. Transitioning this to the use of mobile devices has many advantages when it comes to scanning. One advantage is the capacity to perform multiple forms of data scans from one device.  Additionally, dedicated devices are traditionally fixed to one location due to power or maintenance requirements.

With the added agility of mobile ID scanning, you can proactively approach potential bottlenecks in your processes. Dedicated scanning devices also require special training in order to be operated optimally. Mobile scanning, on the other hand, is a simple and very intuitive procedure that requires minimal training to perform accurately and quickly.

Adopting mobile scanning is the perfect opportunity to reduce training and equipment costs while embracing your digital transformation.
