Capture ID Card data instantly with the Scanbot SDK

To automate ID document processing, you need to extract the data as key-value pairs first. With the Scanbot ID Card Scanner, you can read out all relevant personal data from German ID cards in that form. This is ideal for customer verification on the last mile, for digital check-in, or to replace time-consuming identification procedures such as PostIdent. By adding ID scanning to your app, you can cut manual data entry workload and cost now.
