Passport Engine automates the VAT refund process at airport terminals worldwide, meaning one less queue for passengers to endure.

Smart Engines optical character recognition simplifies and accelerates the process of refunding VAT for tourists in airports around the world – avoiding the frustration of long queues.

Simply display a passport to the camera of a mobile device and Passport Engine automatically recognises and extracts the data necessary to complete the application in less than two seconds. In doing so, it completely frees busy airport staff from the need to enter data manually.

With the capability to recognise documents from a video stream and images, this highly advanced, highly secure software extracts data and performs calculations directly on the device, offline and in real-time – with no cloud or external server required.

Philip Morris

Philip Morris International in Russia uses the passport engine to conduct surveys in its mobile app.

Philip Morris International (PMI) Russia is using identity document capture technology developed by Smart Engines in its survey mobile application.

Smart Engines software helps the PMI’s survey app collect personal data of the respondents. Prior to the introduction of automatic recognition technologies, the data from the identity documents of the participants was being collected manually. Now, the users are offered to scan the identity document with the camera of their device; in 1-3 seconds all the necessary information gets automatically extracted and entered into the relevant fields of the application form.

The recognition process is carried out in a video stream in real time without transferring the images to external servers for processing. The software works equally well on quality high end devices, and regular smartphones equipped with an average low resolution camera.
The integration of Smart Engines recognition libraries has been carried out by Itella Connexions — developers of iOS application for PMI.

Smart Engines document capture software is an innovative solution that provides high quality data recognition and meets the modern trends in intensive expansion of mobile services functionalities.

Test Drive Our Smart Engines

A range of free demo apps allows you to experience the power of Smart Engines software in a real-world context.

Why not experience the power of Smart Engines for yourself? Our free demo apps allow you to test the capabilities of our identity document recognition software on mobile devices and scanners.

Simply display any document to the camera, allow the app to recognise and capture the necessary data, then store in a file, form or work sheet.

Demo apps require access to the camera on your smartphone or device. Some will also request access to the photo gallery in order to demonstrate single-photo document recognition. Others include ‘Make a request’ functionality to enable the sending of information from your e-mail application to the Smart Engines sales department.

Demo apps do not make any copies of your data and never send data to external servers.

Recognition is performed entirely on the device with the sole purpose of allowing you to test the capabilities for yourself. Rest assured that our demos contain no malware or viruses.
