Project Description

Scan German National IDs with Anyline

The lastest Anyline SDK release includes German national ID front scanning support, US driver’s license scanning support and a range of new features. This update is free for all Anyline customers. You can also try it for free with our trial SDK. Get it now and test your mobile scanning use case.

Scan the Front of German National IDs

You can now scan and extract data from the front of German National IDs. German citizens travelling inside certain European countries or to Egypt, Georgia, Turkey, and on organized tours to Jordan (through Aqaba airport) and Tunisia can use their ID card, which is a machine-readable travel document, instead of a passport. ID scanning is a simple way to improve customer onboarding and KYC processes.

Scan US Driver’s Licenses on Android & iOS

We’ve enabled US driver’s license scanning on Android and iOS systems by upgrading our PDF417 scanning capabilities. PDF417 barcodes are located on the back of US driver’s licenses and used on different document formats such as boarding passes. Mobile scanning can instantly gather all driver info for display or verification.

New Cattle Tag Scanner, Zoom Feature, & Face Detection Options

Cattle tag scanning is also now available in the Anyline demo app. This eliminates the need for cattle tags to contain barcodes and reduces the need for NFC and RFID tags.

Developers can now set a pre-defined zoom level on Android and iOS. The SDK also now includes an option to enable pinch zoom for users.

An optional face detection feature has also been added to the SDK for Android platforms.

Anyline is a Gartner Cool Vendor

Gartner, the world wide research institute famous for creating the hype cycle model to predict the maturity of emerging technologies, named Anyline as a Cool Vendor for supply chain execution in 2018.

“This is a huge success for us. Gartner are one of the best known research institutes in the tech industry. Their work on the “Magic Quadrant” and the “Hype Cycle” have helped to guide companies for years. Growing enterprises around the world rely on the analysis and reports they provide to choose only the best service providers. To be recognized by them is to receive the gold standard of approval within our field.”

– Anyline CEO, Lukas Kinigadner.

Anyline was recognized by Gartner because our technology supports the digitization of all kinds of data. By removing typing and manual data entry from everyday processes, you can save time, money and resources while also improving your data quality.
