Pros

  • Old-fashioned book-based systems are difficult to use, people provide fake info and peoples info is exposed. A digital system provides an audit trail that’s easy to create and access
  • South African Vehicle Licence Discs (SAVL) & South African Drivers Licenses (SADL) are digitally scanned, thus eliminating errors* * A quick scan of the SAVL disc and the SADL is all it takes to collect the necessary information to record their visit to the facility.
  • Real-time reports - Know what happens when it happens.

Usage

Scanning a barcode is dependant on the phone hardware including the camera we found good results from if:

  • cameras with higher than 5megapixels
  • good lighting when scanning the barcode (ensure NO flash reflections are on the barcode when using your flash)
  • having the complete barcode in the viewfinder
  • image does not blur (keep your hand steady).
