BIO-key International announced that NCR Corporation has expanded its use of integrated BIO-key fingerprint authentication solutions through several national retail chains, including Wendy’s and Arby’s.
Using BIO-key’s solutions, NCR will be able to provide the retail chains with secure employee access to tens of thousands of POS terminals.
“The expanded utilization demonstrates that BIO-key fingerprint authentication outperforms traditional authentication methods in real-world visible applications; nothing is more mission-critical to a retailer’s revenue than the POS,” said Jim Sullivan, VP of strategy and business development at BIO-key.
BIO-key provides a convenient and cost-effective fingerprint biometric identification alternative to tokens and access cards, which are costly to issue, manage and recover.
Continuing its ongoing relationship with BIO-key, NCR’s recent purchase is valued at several hundred thousand dollars.
NCR had distributed and deployed over 53,000 BIO-key enabled POS terminals in the past as an OEM of BIO-key software.
“Our advanced and visionary approach to sensor independent fingerprint technology allowed NCR and its customers to evolve through three different fingerprint scanner suppliers since our relationship began,” said Sullivan. “BIO-key technology makes the identity and authentication life-cycle easier and less expensive to manage; we expect to deliver continued success and to receive additional orders over time.”
