Scan Vehicle IDs Everywhere – No Barcodes Necessary

This allows you to capture the vehicle ID from any location on the car where it’s clearly printed. You don’t need to go in search of barcodes inside door frames, you can scan right from the windshield. It also means you can scan VINs from models where no barcode is included, to begin with.
Anyline works on all smartphones and lets your users scan wherever they need to. There’s no internet connection needed so you can capture VIN info in even the furthest reaches of your dealership. Essentially, your phone can now read any VIN number that a human user can read too.
In addition to reading the VIN number, your smartphone will also capture a verification image of the scanned VIN for proofreading purposes later on. This ensures full clarity in your data capture operations at all stages of your management processes.
