RadioShack deploys M2SYS biometric ID software for buy-back program

April 23, 2013 - 

RadioShack has installed M2SYS biometric identification software to capture the fingerprints of customers using RadioShack’s “Trade & Save” buy-back program.

According to the company, the software deployment aims to stop fraud and establish a concrete audit trail of transactions. Designed to limit fraud and the resale of stolen items, some U.S. jurisdictions now require stores licensed to accept trade-in merchandise to capture fingerprint information.

“Since we already have a relationship with another vendor who provides a solution for pawn shops and gold buyers that includes our Bio-Plugin image capture software, we were familiar with this market and the need for retailers to adopt a simple, easy-to-use product,” Michael Trader, President of M2SYS Technology said. “The increase of fraud and theft has prompted many retailers to deploy biometric identification technologies to establish a concrete audit trail and fight back against criminals.”

M2SYS recently hired Bill Dumont as the Executive VP of Global Sales and also appointed Steve Runyan as VP of sales for its Workforce Solutions division.

No stranger to retail deployments, M2SYS RightPunch PC-based biometric time clock system has been installed at U.S. Vision. 

M2SYS has scheduled its next #biometricchat for this week, on April 25, 2013. This month’s chat will feature Zack Martin, Editor and Avisian.
