ZEUSTECH integrates the Smart Engines MRZ OCR solution into its mobile application for hotels


greek society ZEUSTECH IT Services introduces Smart Engines software to passport scanning and automatic data extraction from machine-readable zones (MRZs) compliant with international and local standards for passports, residence permits, ID cards, visas and more.

The integration of the Smart Engines OCR solution allows ZEUSTECH to take another step towards customer service convenience and speed. Since June, the check-in passport reader has been available in the Zeus Hotels app and the Cook’s Club app.

Since April 1, 2010, machine-readable passports based on ICAO standards have been adapted globally, explicitly using face, iris and fingerprints as biometric modalities. Machine-readable passports are more easily identifiable, which facilitates visa application and boarding procedures.

Recognition is done in real-time video stream and takes about 1 second without special skills. The Smart Engines solution guarantees high quality MRZ recognition regardless of lighting conditions, different angles and the position of the passport in front of the camera. Additionally, the recognition process is self-contained on mobile devices and does not transfer photo IDs to third-party services or servers.

“ZEUSTECH team understands the changing reality and strives to work for the growth of business performance. Cassiopeia Enterprise application complemented by Smart Engines software will be more convenient and functional for our customers. We firmly believe that the cooperation will be mutually beneficial and fruitful,” said George Moulianakis, Managing Director of ZEUSTECH IT Services.

ZEUSTECH was established in 2017 in Heraklion, Crete, as a software company specializing in tourism. The company’s business model is based on the successful management of all operations necessary to improve and provide high quality services of a resort. Additionally, ZEUSTECH is focused on building long-term relationships with its customers and helping them improve their business in the travel industry through innovation, flexibility, and cutting-edge technology.
