PERTUIS, FRANCE and ISTANBUL, TURKEY, May 30, 2016 – Hotels and tourism agencies have to register the identity of tourist and travelers in Turkey. These data are used to build up a hotel guest register or a passenger list.

Elyctis ID BOX brings ease of use and data certainty. As data from the ePassport or ID card are read automatically without movement, typos, misspellings and errors are avoided, improving customer satisfaction and saving hours of useless trouble. Thanks to Databim solution based on Elyctis passport readers, all the information and pictures are saved on the computer in just seconds. Many hotels and travel agents across Turkey have installed Elyctis ID BOX readers connected with their laptop or tablet. In peak season, travel agents have to read up to 1,000 passports each day, making automatic reading of data an essential advantage to ensure accuracy and throughput.

Databim, building upon its longstanding experience in distribution and systems integration, has been working with various partners to propose solutions fitting the requirements of hotels, travel agents and government agencies to read ePassports and ID documents. These solutions are adapted to a variety of environments using desktops, laptops or tablets, and integrating with other peripherals such as barcode readers and printers.

Mustafa Karaman, General Manager of Databim says “Elyctis readers are ergonomic, small and lightweight making it easy to integrate them in different environments fitting with customer requirements. Our development activities are constant, and we are happy to receive fast and efficient support from Elyctis.”

Alexandre Joly, CEO for Elyctis adds: “Databim has been instrumental in integrating our readers and adapting to customer requirements in Turkey. Facilitating ID document data acquisition is a strong added value to the travel and hospitality industries.”
