PENTA Scanner®

Capture Visitor Information and Check ID Documents

Scan ID documents such as passports, ID cards, drivers’ licenses, and gamer cards. Read magnetic stripe cards, chip cards, and even scan barcodes all with one device. Use the captured data to, for example, automatically verify the age of a customer or to find out if a customer is already listed on an in-house blacklist.

The PENTA Scanner® makes issuing gamer cards faster and more efficient because it helps you auto-populate all corresponding fields, including credit card information, in an application form. Additionally, use the captured image copy for detailed verification and authentication of the document, or, if necessary, transmit the image to a centralized database for further inspection.

Speed up your workflow, comply with legal requirements, and enhance your customer service. Our devices assist you with present tasks and upcoming requirements.
