White paper

Fingerprint biometrics is one of the most cost-effective technologies that retailers can deploy today to prevent theft at the POS. Most retailers experience ROI in a matter of weeks, and because biometrics are integrated into most POS hardware and software solutions on the market, they are a snap to deploy.

In a nutshell, fingerprint biometrics provide proof of presence, irrefutably linking individuals to their transactions. Because fingerprint biometrics cannot be shared, lost or stolen, employees cannot pretend to be someone else. This prevents many common forms of employee theft and holds them accountable for their actions.

Read the white paper, Biometrics: Retail’s Best Kept Secret, and learn how to:

  • Improve Operational Efficiencies. No fumbling with or forgetting PINs and passwords. Customers are served more quickly and are happier with the in-store experience.
  • Eliminate Time and Attendance Fraud. “Buddy Punching” is eliminated because employees must be physically present to punch in with their fingerprint.
  • Prevent Unauthorized Manager Overrides. Fingerprint biometrics ensure that managers cannot delegate their authority to approve overrides and discounts to employees.
  • Reduce Operational Costs. Fingerprint biometrics eliminate the expense of provisioning and replacing swipe cards and resetting forgotten passwords and PINs.
  • Lessen Employee Turnover Costs. Since thefts at the POS are eliminated, so are the costs associated with investigating, apprehending, terminating, and prosecuting dishonest employees. This means the costs of recruiting, hiring, training, and waiting for new employees is greatly reduced.
