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.

How is your business being affected?

According to the American Payroll Association, “buddy punching” accounts for up to 5% of overall payroll. It’s been reported that employees stole an average of 4.5 hours each week, equivalent to a six-week paid vacation per year. With biometric fingerprint reader software for stores, the payroll clock starts ticking when your employee is at the register and ready for work.

Notice the bar graph illustrating the above points made by the American Payroll Association. Using the numbers from their research, based on 100 employees for your business averaging $10/hr, you are losing up to $104,000 yearly from time clock fraud and “buddy punching”.

Along with payroll savings, the need to remember ID numbers and passwords is gone. Employee theft accounts for 43% of inventory shrinkage. However, when employees understand that their access to systems and resources automatically reveals who they are, their incentive to behave inappropriately is significantly reduced. 

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.
