In an industry that has access to customer records and is known for high employee turnover, authenticating the person responsible for the transaction is important.
Leading retail organizations that want to avoid the vulnerability of passwords or reduce the friction of authentication systems that rely on swiping cards or accessing PIN / token numbers are integrating biometric solutions.
When you add BIO-key to your products you:
IT departments for retail organizations are faced with identifying authentication solutions for owners, general managers, department managers supervisors and staff. They are also tasked with identifying authentication solutions that sufficiently manage a more temporary group, their part-timers and those that spend very short times with the organization. Both groups introduce the organization to different, but somewhat similar inherent security risks.
BIO-key helps retailers reduce risk by associating all activities and transactions on the device to the actual individual that was responsible.
BIO-key biometric authentication solutions are preferred by leading retail organizations because they cannot be lost, stolen, or shared.
A challenge faced by most retailers is high employee turnover. Due to turnover, retail organizations are constantly introducing new users to their online portals, cash registers, POS systems, and customer records.
