ID Scanning

How does ID scanning work?

Identification documents like driver license, passport, ID’s, etc. take an important part of modern KYC (Know Your Customer), user onboarding, registration process flows. Various business data (e.g. ID number, first name/last name, PDF 417 Barcode) from such documents will be captured, validated and exported using mobile apps like ID scanner, passport scanner, etc. or by utilizing of cloud-based ID scanning and capturing services.

Passport scanner

To scan ID typically following scenarios are applied: ON-DEVICE/OFF-DEVICE processing using ID scanner, passport scanner etc, apps or Web capture integration with a backend service.

ON-DEVICE requires a native SDK (Software Development Kit) and OCR takes place directly on the mobile device. Both online and offline ID scanning is possible and data capture/OCR just requires a few seconds or less.

OFF-DEVICE processing requires network or Internet connection to the backend OCR service which is typically is hosted in the Cloud. As ID scanner or passport scanner app only captures the image of ID or passport, all OCR/data capture activities take place on the backend and therefore some additional processing time for network transfers, managing task queue etc. is required.

WEB CAPTURE is used to scan ID directly from the browser. It can be integrated I any web page, Intranet portal or mobile web apps and always requires a backend application to run OCR/Data capture tasks on ID images. 

WiseID includes all necessary components for all scenarios mentioned above! Additionally, we offer backend processing service, which supports out-of-the-box data capture from over 1500 types/formats of ID, passport, driver license etc., across 220 countries. This service is fully integrated into ABBYY FlexiCapture workflow and can be deployed on-prem or as SaaS based application in the Cloud.
