DigitalPersona is the leading provider of fingerprint biometric solutions for integrated point-of-service terminal systems. Fingerprint biometrics enable restaurants and retailers to immediately save money by eliminating payroll fraud from buddy-punching and employee lollygagging, reducing cash register shrink opportunities and preventing fictitious product returns and voids. In addition, biometrics enables restaurants and retailers to control access to POS terminals while enforcing employee responsibility and accuracy.

The U.are.U UPOS products are plug-and-play compatible with industry standard UPOS (Unified Point of Service) terminals and applications.

"Unified Point of Service" Standard

The Unified Point of Service standard, also called UPOS, is a standard that is managed by the Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS). This is a group of point-of-sale retailers, terminal vendors, peripherals and application developers.

The intent of the UPOS standard is to achieve several goals:

   • Plug and play interaction between POS terminal peripherals and applications.

   • Enable retailer freedom of choice in the selection of standard implementations.

   • Reduce application development complexity through standards.

The UPOS standard supports three different operating environments including:

   • Windows OLE Operating system environments designated OPOS

   •  Java environments designated JavaPOS.
   •  .NET environments designated .NET POS.

Benefits for the POS Industry

Eliminate Buddy Punching, Lollygagging and Payroll Fraud
Buddy punching, the practice of an employee clocking in for another, increases payroll significantly.  Lollygagging, the effect of lingering for several minutes between punching in and being active at the register, creates additional productivity losses. Deploying fingerprint authentication at the POS terminal eliminates buddy punching and lollygagging thus reducing payroll and ensuring that employees are paid when they are at their POS terminal.

Reduce Cash Register Shrink
Cashier-caused shrink is a problem for all retail, restaurant and hospitality industries. Manager keys, passwords or swipe cards can be stolen or shared resulting in fictitious refunds or voided sales. By requiring fingerprint access to POS terminal login and managerial functions, DigitalPersona authentication solutions ensure that only authorized refunds or voids are processed. Fingerprints provide an identifier unique to each user resulting in non-repudiable audit trails making employees responsible for their cash and credit transactions.

Replace Keys, Cards and Passwords
Register keys, swipe cards and passwords can be shared, lost or stolen. Replacing these with fingerprint authentication ensures that only authorized users can gain access to restaurant and retail networks and applications.
