Driver License Scans Save Time & Reduce Costs

The gathering & processing of Driver’s Licenses & data from IDs manually is not only a mundane and time-consuming task, it’s a hotbed for human error as well. There are many causes of human typing mistakes such as stress, fatigue, and distraction. Especially police officers have more exposure to these factors than most other people.

It only takes one typing mistake for ID data to be corrupted. However, with mobile scanning technology, the scan accuracy is over 99% in laboratory settings. This is a huge improvement in the quality of data collection. What’s more, our mobile scanning tools are tailored to work in demanding environments as well and can collect data fast & secure in any location & in all conditions.
