IACPOS incorporates a new access system to the Alhambra in Granada

The Board of Trustees of the Alhambra and Generalife has implemented an innovative access system that improves the security and transparency of the Granada monument, and allows visitors to access by reading the original ID or passport.

This important milestone, promoted by IACPOS, improves security at the entrances to the Alhambra with a new image recognition system, thanks to a new technological tool called ‘OCR’ (Optical Character Recognition), certifying the veracity and identity of the visitor , since it allows the optical recognition of the encrypted content in an image, so in a matter of seconds it identifies the symbols and characters of the DNI or passport and checks if they are the same as those provided by the visitor when buying the ticket .

The system has been installed at all access points to the Monumental Complex and will soon be implemented in the Andalusian monuments attached to the Alhambra, it is a clear example of the commitment of the Board of Trustees of the Alhambra and Generalife to guarantee a more efficient and safe management in the access and control of visitors, and provide greater transparency throughout the ticket sales procedure.

At IACPOS we continue to add value to all our clients as well as firmly committed to the digitization of some of the most important monuments and tourist attractions on the national and international scene.

In the words of the Minister of Culture and Historical Heritage, Patricia del Pozo: “this system speeds up the entire process of control and entry of visitors to the Monumental Complex of the Alhambra and the Generalife, facilitating their flow and making their visit safer ”.
