In response to increasing demand for ID scanning solutions that enable customers to quickly and accurately enter information, Aila Technologies has developed an innovative kiosk solution. Aila’s Interactive Kiosk with ID Tray is a compact, fully functional kiosk that boasts a highly intuitive image-based scanner.

Unlike traditional PC-based systems that often rely upon bulky, expensive peripherals, Aila’s iOS-based Interactive Kiosk is sleek and self-contained. Optimized for self-service, it allows users to easily scan IDs through its integrated scanner technology and the familiar touchscreen interface of an iPad.

Consumers benefit from real-time confirmation that they’ve accurately registered their information, whether from a government-issued ID, loyalty card, insurance card, credit card, student ID, or work ID. Businesses, meanwhile, benefit from the reduction of administrative costs associated with such clerical activities.

A powerful imaging engine integrated into Aila’s Interactive Kiosk enables its scanner to be extraordinarily versatile. Encompassing functionality traditionally expected of a variety of highly specialized, single-function scanning devices, Aila’s image-based scanner can accurately capture both IDs and barcodes, as well as 1D/2D barcodes, QR codes, Digimarc barcodes, and more.

Because Aila’s kiosk solutions use wifi-enabled iOS devices, the software built for Aila’s scanning technology receives routine, automatic performance, and capability updates. This means that as third-party symbologies and data-coded imagery evolve, Aila’s adaptable software-based scanner will evolve with it. Unlike stagnant devices that will soon be obsolete, this is a platform that will expand to meet changing demands.

The practical applications for Aila’s Interactive Kiosk with ID Tray are nearly limitless.

Featured application: Healthcare, patient check-in

Streamlining the patient’s check-in experience while maximizing the accuracy of data transfer of critical personal and insurance information will both enhance the customer experience and provide better outcomes. Aila’s versatile, all-in-one Interactive Kiosk with ID Tray can provide a powerful, cost-effective and user-friendly alternative to traditional identity and access management hardware products—while also functioning as a self-service check-in kiosk.

Manual data input is inefficient

Even as facilities gradually adopt more and more technology-enabled tools into their infrastructure and workflow, most still rely upon some form of manual data input. This is both slow and inefficient. Worse yet, people make mistakes; in the healthcare world, human error can have serious—and costly—consequences.

The Aila solution

By utilizing a self-service kiosk with a compact touch-screen-enabled device and integrated dual ID and barcode scanner, healthcare facilities can streamline these critical every-day processes. This allows for the seamless, efficient transfer of data such as identity verification, medical history, insurance details, contact information, and more, while also freeing up staff to focus on more important things, such as providing exceptional patient care.
