DigitalPersona has announced that Coppel Corporation has chosen the company’s fingerprint technology to verify customer and employee identities in more than 800 banks and 1,000 Pension Fund Offices throughout Mexico, Argentina and Brazil.
“Customers like the ease of use and assured identity that fingerprint technology provides them,” Ing. Jose Gpe. Mendoza Macias, national manager of systems development for Coppel Corporation said. “The fraud-fighting benefit of knowing someone cannot purchase goods on their account is also very important to our customers.”
“In addition to customer identification, the employees are using the biometrics-based systems to log into computer systems, authenticate transactions, process wire transfers and more. The design of the solution is similar to systems deployed in retail locations, as well as Coppel Corporation’s headquarters. The response from our staff and our customers has been overwhelmingly positive,” Mendoza said.
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, DigitalPersona recently integrated the company’s TCS1 Steelcoat sensor into Visiontek handheld biometric readers.
“DigitalPersona’s assured identity solutions are ideal for both employee and customer banking applications,” said Richard Agostinelli, DigitalPersona president and CEO. “The strengths of our biometric-based offering are high security, low cost and simple operation, making the banking environment a natural fit for us. Strengthening security does not have to mean creating new barriers for customers.”
