Cloudbeds ID Scanning & Check-In Bundle


With our Cloudbeds ID Scanning Bundle, front guest staff can autofill the Cloudbeds PMS with guest information by scanning their ID, automating the check-in process. The purchase below includes hardware. You will need to purchase your ParseLink data automation software separately.

About the Cloudbeds ID Scanning Bundle’s integration into the Cloudbeds PMS provides a seamless guest and staff experience by automating the guest check-in process. This solution populates the information stored on an ID, such as a driver’s license, directly into the Cloudbeds guest check-in page. Hotel staff can quickly capture guest ID information with complete accuracy. Eliminate the need to manually type in your required data; simply scan the ID and the information will be populated directly into the Cloudbeds system. Cloudbeds customers will benefit from this seamless integration.
