Founded in Vienna in 2013, Anyline has established itself as the market leader in mobile text recognition. Using the newest and most innovative artificial intelligence approaches, Anyline enables any mobile device to process written characters in real time, even when offline. It’s not only more accurate than manual data entry, but also works 20 times faster.

Over 100,000 officers worldwide use Anyline solutions on their mobile policing apps, including police forces of Austria, Germany, Australia and soon, Gibraltar.

Police and border security can use Anyline to instantly people by scanning IDs, passports, green cards, visas, and driver’s licenses, as well as vehicle and freight, by scanning license plates, vehicle identification number (VIN) tire identification numbers (TIN) and container numbers.

Anyline software processes all data collected securely on the officers’ device, removing any chance of data interference, and enabling officers to gather data offline.
For officers in North-Rhine Westphalia, in north-west Germany, the introduction of Anyline has significantly improved data gathering processes for their officers:
“These innovative tools make our service easier in many areas. Thanks to the new scan functionality, we can immediately check ID documents and vehicle license plates in the field. The information collected can then be checked against the police database.”

In Bavaria, officers have also been able to streamline ID checks at the land borders of Austria and Czech Republic, noting that mobile scanning has reduced the time needed to inspect the IDs of coach passengers entering the country from over half an hour to only a few minutes.
In an increasingly interconnected world, police forces are facing new threats from inside and outside their borders. Mobile policing solutions are empowering them to act quickly and counter new challenges ahead.
