ID Scanning

By Aila Staff

January 4, 2017

ID scanning is the fastest and most reliable way for businesses—from retail and healthcare to travel and hospitality—to verify the identity of visitors. When paired with authentication software like the system provided by Acuant, ID scanning is the simplest way to ensure that your guests are who they say they are.

Aila’s SoftScan captures the PDF-417 barcodes on state-issued IDs with ease, and can also read a number of other 1D/2D barcodes that are commonly found on identification cards.

Integrating Aila’s SoftScan into your iOS app is fast and easy, and gives you the ability to scan 45+ barcode symbologies, including:

  • UPC/EAN barcodes commonly found on products
  • 2D codes like QR codes commonly found on receipts, membership cards, and email confirmations
  • PDF-417s, found on state IDs (for age-restricted items)
  • Damaged, misprinted, or blurry barcodes that are difficult for traditional scanners to capture

Take your returns and pickup experiences to the next level by integrating Aila’s SoftScan into your iOS-based apps. Get in touch to learn more:
