Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp. has rolled out DigitalPersona’s U.are.U fingerprint biometrics in 122 Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes restaurant locations throughout 15 states. Deploying this Point-of-Sale software provides employees accountability and reduces unauthorized discounts and overrides.
Prior to installing fingerprint biometrics, registers required a key to manage refunds, voids and discounts, but this system resulted in difficulty and losses that directly impacted the bottom line. Garden Fresh significantly reduces unauthorized transactions by utilizing POS hardware software and U.are.U fingerprint readers.
Fingerprint biometrics enhance the security of POS systems. After previous success, the corporation plans to extend biometrics to its time and attendance system eliminating buddy-punching and payroll fraud.
DigitalPerson’s U.are.U fingerprint readers have been integrated in more than 90 percent of biometric POS terminals in the U.S.. The solution is reportedly east to integrate with POS systems and Linux-based business applications according to Rich Thomson, vice president of management information systems at Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp.
