Uploading ID Cards with a Portable Scanner
Using a scanner provides great convenience.† You can scan and archive
just about any document or hard copy ID card with a simply swipe.† Up
until now, however, scanners were too big haul around.† That means any
scanning was performed in an office or home environment.† Now, that has
all changed with the arrival of the convenient portable scanner.
Like its name suggests, the portable scanner is just that Ė portable.† Its dimensions are no greater than a regular three-hole punch device (11.5 inches x 1.7 inches x 2 inches).† Itís so narrow that it can easily fit into a briefcase and taken to just about any destination.† That means you can even bring it along on for those long-distance business trips where you have to fly across country.† Not only is the portable scanner small in size, but also itís extremely lightweight.† Weighing in at just 14 ounces, it weighs a bit less than a laptop computer.† Whatís best of all, it doesnít require its own power source.† Simply plug in a USB cable to the laptop and youíre ready to go.† Itís about as convenient and simple to use as a digital camera, only that it scans and uploads hard copy documents and IDís.†
Not all scanners are able to scan and read any type of document.† Most portable scanners can scan and upload just about any type of hard copy document or ID.† That means you can scan regular and legal size documents, business cards, IDís including drivers licenses and passports, and even photos.† Itís basically one powerful workhorse that gets the job done, no matter whatís thrown its way.†
Case in point
Letís suppose that you are interviewing candidates for a job in a local coffee shop.†† Usually, you would ask to see some ID to verify identification and then jot down the details, hoping not to forget crucial information.† With a portable scanner, you donít have to rely on your skill on transferring information.† Simply swipe the ID cards into the portable scanning device and within seconds youíll have a digitalized version of the ID card.† Now, when you return to your office, you can review all the IDs at your leisure.
