In a time when most governments issue modern ID documents, Elyctis and STS now propose an integrated solution to the hospitality industry allowing hotels, car rentals, tour agencies, banks and other organizations, to read accurately and efficiently data from these ID documents.

PERTUIS, FRANCE and PLOVDIV, BULGARIA, February 12, 2018 – In the hospitality industry, check-in is generally seen as a tedious and cumbersome task. In many cases, hotel receptionists either manually copy data from customers’ passports and ID documents or use full page or even A4 format scanners that scan the document and rely on OCR (Optical Character Recognition) in order to extract data such as the customer’s name, first name, date of birth, citizenship and ID document number. This type of equipment is often expensive and bulky taking up precious space at the hotel reception desk.

Smart Tech Systems, a major developer of hardware and IT solutions and services for the hospitality industry now integrates Elyctis ID BOX One readers in its ID and Passport reading solution for hotels. The ID BOX One reader only reads the MRZ (Machine Readable Zone) accurately and uses this information to generate all the needed data to populate fields in the hotel PMS (Property Management System). As the MRZ is designed to be machine-readable, reading data from it is always faster and more efficient than using OCR routines to analyze a full-page document. 

The Elyctis ID BOX One reader, along with STS MRZinput Pro integration software, scans the MRZ from all ePassports, over 140 types of ID cards and other identity documents such as driving licenses, residence permits, etc. The read data is automatically transmitted to different types of software products used in hotels, car rentals, tour agencies, banks and state institutions. STS solution is compatible with all the leading PMS including Oracle Hospitality Fidelio and Opera, Protel, Visual Matrix, Clock, and many others.

Depending on the version of Elyctis ID BOX One reader implemented in each hotel, the data read from the MRZ can be used to access the chip present in the ePassports issued by more than 120 countries and provide additional data in a totally secure manner. Also, depending on the version of Elyctis ID BOX One reader, data can be read from the contact ID cards issued by many countries, and provide access to all needed information for each cardholder.

Yordan Popov, CEO Smart Tech Systems, declares: “With our software based on Elyctis ID BOX One, we provide the hospitality industry with an integrated solution that makes them generate accurate data, save valuable time at check-in and provide a better service with less resources.”

Alexandre Joly, CEO Elyctis, adds: “The solution developed by Smart Tech Systems demonstrates that reading the MRZ and accessing data from ID documents is not only faster and easier but also more reliable than using cumbersome full-page scanners.”
