It is always a challenge for any busy commercial car and van rental provider to balance the needs of the business to validate hirer’s identity and driver entitlement against the need to expedite the on-boarding process in order to get customers into vehicles and on their way as quickly as possible – particularly during peak times.

One solution is to find a way to capture data quickly and accurately from the photo card licence presented to the hire company by the driver and in the same process to carry out simple repeatable checks to identify obviously forged or tampered with documents.
