PassportScan Check-in Revolution
Passportscan on promise


PassportScan is locally-installed document scanning software designed for the hotel industry to streamline check-in processes. It simplifies document capture, management, and storage using traditional scanners like Fi60f or 3M Scanner, along with digital signature capabilities on Wacom tablets. This solution addresses check-in challenges and offers secure data storage through a MySQL database.

Our Past and Present and Our Plans for the Future

In 1996, we introduced Galaxy Hotel to the market—a user-friendly Property Management System that marked our commercial debut. Fast forward ten years to 2006, during a live demo, we encountered a request that seemed fantastical at the time: the automatic reading and input of guest identification details. That very day marked the beginning of an ambitious journey into the realm of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, which could interpret various images and decipher text. This innovation birthed a pioneering plug-in for Galaxy Hotel, sparking the idea: why not expand this technology across all Property Management Systems (PMS)?

Our exploration led to the creation of DFF©, or Dynamic Form Fill—a groundbreaking software designed to effortlessly channel data from scanners directly into the necessary fields of management systems, enriched progressively with additional features.

The year 2008 saw the establishment of PassportScan Ltd. in London. We made waves at a tourism exhibition, showcasing how seamlessly PassportScan integrated with micros-fidelio© (now part of Oracle©), leaving their team in awe. This breakthrough led to a cascade of global invitations and presentations to PMS providers.

This innovation didn’t just create ripples; it revolutionized the digital check-in landscape. Now, hotel chains and developers worldwide are crafting specialized plug-ins and providing integration support for PassportScan and DFF. Our solution is now a staple in over 4,500 companies’ operations, and we remain committed to relentlessly enhancing and expanding its capabilities.
