REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 16, 2013 — DigitalPersona, Inc., a trusted partner for biometric identity verification solutions, today announced that Papa John’s restaurants in China are using DigitalPersona® fingerprint biometrics to speed and secure employees’ and managers’ daily tasks. More than thirty company-owned Papa John’s restaurants in northern China are using DigitalPersona U.are.U® Fingerprint Readers with NCR Advanced Restaurant (formerly Compris) point-of-sale (POS) software to record employee time and attendance, as well as authorize overrides and discounts.
Papa John’s employees previously used smart cards to record their time and attendance. Managers used the cards to authorize discounts, voids and overrides. However, smart cards can be shared, lost or forgotten. In a fast-paced environment, Papa John’s needs a solution that provides their employees and managers with a secure and convenient method when performing daily tasks. DigitalPersona fingerprint readers allow employees to clock in for their shift and managers to approve voids and overrides with a touch of their finger.
“The DigitalPersona U.are.U Fingerprint Readers save our managers and employees time, increase productivity and eliminate the costs of managing smart cards,” said Papa John’s Beijing. “We recommend the use of DigitalPersona’s biometrics solution to franchised restaurants so they too can increase their profits.”
DigitalPersona U.are.U Fingerprint Readers can be found in many biometrically-enabled POS terminals and are supported by a variety of commercial POS applications. DigitalPersona fingerprint readers enable restaurants and retailers to speed workflow, improve operations and reduce costs.
