Kodak Alaris and IDT help DMVs achieve Real ID compliance
Integrated Document Technologies (IDT) has partnered with Kodak Alaris to create a cloud-based solution that helps department of motor vehicle agencies comply with REAL ID requirements.
According to the companies, INfuse requires no PCs, application software, or staff training. Powered by CAPSYS CAPTURE ONLINE, it offers network-connected capture that sits at the front edge of the motor vehicle department’s process to allow "point-of-origin" capture and directly integrates into their business system to streamline processing of Real ID applications.
To ensure the security of personally identifiable information, IDT offers the solution on-demand through Microsoft Windows Azure Government, which provides certifications to simplify critical government compliance requirements. Traditional on-premise deployment is also available.
Beginning October 1, 2021, the U.S. federal government will require a driver license, permit, or ID card to be REAL ID-compliant if an individual wishes to use it to board a domestic flight or enter military bases and certain federal facilities. REAL ID application requirements may vary by state but, at a minimum, individuals must provide documentation of their legal name, date of birth, Social Security number, two forms of proof of address, and citizenship or immigration status to receive the upgraded license.
Motor vehicle offices, many of which already have a backlog of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, are now trying to keep up with public demand for Real ID-compliant driver licenses and ID cards. The current process of manually reviewing, organizing and scanning documents to prepare them for authentication is time-consuming and leaves room for error. If during the downstream authentication process, an application is found to contain illegible information or missing documents, the application is rejected and the individual must make another trip to the DMV.
In partnership with Kodak Alaris, IDT has developed a solution to decrease user error during the document scanning process. The new solution, built on Kodak Alaris’ INfuse Smart Connected Scanning Solution and integrated with CAPSYS CAPTURE ONLINE, provides real-time acknowledgment if an application is in compliance with REAL ID document requirements at the point of scanning. All application documents, including a passport, can be fed, scanned, monitored for exception errors, and validated with an accepted or rejected notification—while the customer is onsite.
