RadioShack deploys M2SYS biometric ID software for 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.”
No stranger to retail deployments, M2SYS RightPunch PC-based biometric time clock system has been installed at U.S. Vision.
