The amount of paperwork in Department of Motor Vehicle offices across the nation is overwhelming. Fold in forced closures from 2020 pandemic restrictions and backlogs have significantly increased. With the REAL ID deadline approaching fast, DMVs must adapt their processes to ensure they can keep pace with the high influx of applications and paperwork anticipated before the deadline.
With the backlog and new flood of REAL ID applications that need to be processed in-person, DMVs must look to optimize their current document capture technology to ensure faster processing times without risking non-compliance, data inaccuracies, or citizen dissatisfaction. Several challenges exist with legacy technology used to process these applications:
Centralized scanning operations in DMVs with shared production scanners can slow down application processing and lead to further backlogged applications.
Subpar image quality can further slow down processing times and lead to application and data errors, requiring further validation.
Proper document protection must be ensured by DMVs with the handling of fragile, sensitive, and mixed document types such as IDs, passports, birth certificates, and social security cards.
To effectively handle the high volume of applications, DMVs & MVAs across the nation need to consider solutions that address the challenges associated with legacy technology and increasing demand. Solutions that support information captured at the point of transaction without compromising image quality or document integrity are critical.
