Papa John’s restaurants in China turn to DigitalPersona for biometric POS and workforce management

April 16, 2013 - 

More than 30 Papa John’s pizza restaurants in northern China are now using DigitalPersona fingerprint readers as a part of its workflow.

Specifically, the pizza chain is using DigitalPersona’s  U.are.U readers for both point-of-sale applications, as well as a workforce management solution.

Previously, the pizza chain had been using a smart card-based system to record staff time and attendance and managers used the cards to authorize discounts, voids and overrides.

“Fingerprint biometrics has become the authentication method of choice for quick-serve restaurants,” Gary Oberman , director of worldwide POS sales at DigitalPersona said. “Fingerprint readers are a mature, reliable technology that can be deployed quickly and easily, enabling an immediate return on investment.  Our fingerprint readers have been known to pay for themselves in as little as four weeks.”

Reported previously, the Hooters restaurant chain has also recently integrated DigitalPersona fingerprint readers for its POS and workforce management needs.

In February, DigitalPersona announced that its Eikon Touch 500 with TouchChip TCS1 Sensor as well as its U.are.U 4500 Reader UID edition scanners have now been certified by the Standardisation Testing and Quality Certification (STQC) directorate in India.
