Hotels in several countries collect identification details (passport, visa, ID cards, etc,) of their guests for two primary reasons. First, to comply with local regulatory requirements and the second, hotels believe it is necessary for them to have ID details of guests for security purpose.
These routine activities like copying, filing & manually entering the identification details in the computer systems waste valuable time, increase costs, occupy storage space and increase possibilities of manual data entry errors.
Samsotech - VICAS (Visitor Identification Capture & Archiving System) addresses all these challenges. VICAS systems electronically scan and READ passports, visas & ID cards, reduce guest check-in time and create digital storage of identification details for future processing & archiving. VICAS systems save time & costs of document copying, filing and storage, eliminate / minimise labour of manual data entry & associated errors and automate the process of collection, submission & filing. VICAS systems also enhance the hotel efficiency by providing capabilities for easy digital storage, back-up, search, track, sort and create management reports. VICAS systems are in use in several countries.
