Digital ID Data Capture for Vehicle Rentals

Socket Mobile Provides Digital ID Data Capture tools for safe and secure Vehicle Rentals


Car Rental Industry Makes a Drive Toward Digital ID

The vehicle rental business has changed dramatically over the years and continues to evolve. The industry relies heavily on the use of IDs to confirm the identities of those looking to rent a car, moving van, RV, or other types of vehicles. Rental companies must confirm a customer's driver's license with certainty to prevent any injury to their business and ensure the safety of all involved.

Digital IDs are growing within the vehicle rental industry because they provide a secure way to confirm one's identity while limiting the personal information shared by the customer. If one needs to prove their age and the validity of their driver's license, the digital ID passes only the relevant information.

With the rise of Digital ID use, Socket Mobile provides the data capture tools that vehicle rental companies need to read and accept customer credentials. Our scanners and readers help securely read a digital ID and determine one's age and the validity of their driver's license without sharing irrelevant personal information. Integrating Socket Mobile for Digital ID helps companies quickly and reliably identify the customer in a way that protects their privacy and safety.

Benefits of Integrating Socket Mobile for Digital ID and Car Rentals/Sharing

Choosing Socket Mobile means more than just choosing a simple data collection tool. We provide long-lasting benefits and support that give you complete confidence in choosing us for your digital ID and collection.

Socket Mobile offers scanners and readers that can capture data from phone screens, plastic cards, and paper. Since we are at the stage where digital ID isn't used by 100% of people and industries yet, it's essential to be able to authenticate IDs of all types. Socket Mobile offers devices that allow you to capture data quickly and conveniently from everyone.

When renting a car, the customer's and company's safety should be top priorities. Customers want their privacy protected by not sharing information that isn't relevant for renting a car, and companies want to know they are renting only to those legally allowed. Socket Mobile offers scanners and readers that can reliably check ID, whether digital, paper, or card.

The vehicle rental industry requires businesses to use devices that can quickly and consistently read important information about their customers. Scanners and readers should improve the business by creating a smoother process for everyone. This is why Socket Mobile only offers scanners and readers that have low breakage and low return rates.

Socket Mobile won't just help you find the best device for your business. We pride ourselves on providing complete support through the setup process and beyond that meets your needs and ensures you feel comfortable using our scanners and readers as you collect customer data.

All Socket Mobile devices are cordless, allowing you to work safely and efficiently throughout your environment. If you need to move from one end of the counter to the other, you can do so without being tied to your computer.
