ID Scanning is increasingly being utilized throughout many industries to not only heighten security but also improve business operations, and the hospitality industry, specifically hotels and motels are no exception. Automating data capture with ID scanning will simultaneously increase staff productivity, optimize operational efficiency, streamline your visitor management and increase your guest satisfaction.’s out of the box solutions make it easy to integrate ID scanning into your existing system.  Begin by creating a profile- deciding what information you want to collect from your customers ID.  When the ID is scanned, your PMS system will be populated according to your instruction, automating your guest check process.

Our suggested scanner, the M280 allows you to pull the information on your customers ID such as name, address, age, ect., and capture an image of the ID itself along with the customer’s credit card. The M280 paired with IDScan.nets WizzForms Plus, a keystroke emulator software, allows you to auto-populate your property management system (PMS) and quickly pull up existing reservations, expediting your guest check in process and ensuring accurate guest data.

ID scanning can also be utilized to help enhance the security of your establishment.  The M280 + WizzForms Plus allows you to capture a timestamped image of  your customer ID and credit card to help you combat costly chargebacks.  As an added security benefit, WizzForms will allow you to classify guests as Do Not Return (DNR), and alert you when that guest’s ID is scanned at your establishment.

Anyone from a modest bed and breakfast to a large luxury hotel will benefit from incorporating ID scanning into their daily operations.  For larger establishments, offers an SDK allowing the ID scanning component to be built into your existing application.
