What is Biometric Fingerprint Technology?
Biometrics is the study of methods for uniquely recognizing people based upon one or more intrinsic physical or behavioral traits.
Biometric authentication refers to technologies that measure and analyze human physical and behavioral characteristics for authentication purposes.
Simply put, we use your employee’s fingerprint to quickly and securely log them into your POS, allowing them to clock in/out with a single touch!
Biometric security is a standard feature of all FTx POS software, and a fingerprint scanner is also optional with our various Hardware Solutions.

Weekly Expenditure vs. Yearly Loss Payroll: $40,000
Employees now have accountability on the POS; requiring a finger read instead of memorized passwords ensures the compliance of an employee, thus reducing the chance of theft via another employee’s information.
