ID Reader for Fidelio ID Reader is a software solution that enables automatic transfer of textual data from personal and travel documents into Fidelio PMS within a few seconds. After scanning the document, ID Reader automatically recognizes the document type and extracts all the textual data from the scanned image. When the process finishes, all textual data together with images will be sent to the Fidelio PMS. ID Reader does not store any data, it only serves to transfer data from documents into Fidelio PMS. ID Reader is based on image processing and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology. •

Reads all passports made according to the international ICAO 9303 standard (all European and most of the world’s passports) and ID cards from all over the world

Database includes over 2000 document templates from around the world

Database is constantly updated with new document versions

Supports special characters (Š, Č, Ć, Đ, Ž, Ñ,Ü,Ö, etc.)

The software uses small, high quality scanners which are specially designed for scanning arge number of documents in a short amount of time. Scanners represent an ideal solution for receptions and similar ‘front desk business’ which require client registration. Working with large number of personal documents requires additional data protection. Although ID Reader does not contain a database, it contains protection mechanisms such as converting images to 150 DPI, converting images to grayscale and textual watermark on the image of the entire document with the hotel name. ID Reader improves your business in many ways! In hotels where personal documents are photocopied at check-in (to speed up the procedure), ID Reader saves money (no more daily expenses on paper and ink) and time (typing personal data into the PMS after guest leaves reception).

Face image in Fidelio PMS enables personalization of service and takes hospitality to a higher level. At the same time, it increases the security level since the employees can check guest identity from any computer in the hotel (reception, wellness, swimming pool, etc.).
