By using Atom, KATE has been able to automate and speed up the customer on-boarding process by collecting numerous pieces of data from the customer ID and then automatically populating the mandatory fields in the software. Additionally, users can select optional facial recognition to ensure that the document presented belongs to the person presenting it, by comparing the passport image with the persons face. Due for release soon, is the facility to use Atom to verify document authenticity, therefore adding an extra level of security to the system.

Atom’s innovative design enables the capture of multiple high-resolution, uncompressed images (Visible, IR & UV). In comparison to existing scanners, the transaction time is significantly reduced, delivering greater productivity, cost savings and reducing customer registration time.

Its innovative ‘shark fin’ document guides, ensure that even the most widely used documents quickly slide onto the glass, with bent corners eased down for a perfect read every time. Like its predecessors, Atom still delivers lightning fast MRZ decoding, whilst simultaneously reading RFID data from eDocuments.

Within the next few months, KATE will start installing Atom readers in gaming arcades in Jamaica where they account for 80% of the market. Significant demand is also expected from hotels and resorts where obvious opportunities for streamlining front desk operations exist.  

Speaking about the Access-IS document scanners, Aschwin Molendijk, CEO at KATE bvba said “We chose the Access-IS Atom for a number of reasons including its lightning speed and reliability but also because of the ease of the software integration with our own systems”.
