Fingerprint logon is simple, fast, and secure. First you "register" one or more of your fingerprints. The system saves enough unique information about your fingerprint to create a template so that a fingerprint reader can later identify you.


Your actual fingerprint is not stored, and your actual fingerprint cannot be reconstructed from the template that is created and stored.





When you want to log on, you touch the fingerprint reader and your fingerprint is compared to the template that was created during the registration process. If there is enough matching information, you are authenticated and logged on.


If there is not enough matching information, the system will not verify you or log you on.





The fingerprint recognition application software does not store a copy of your fingerprint. Instead, it makes a map of 25 to 40 unique features of your fingerprint and then puts it into a data format called a template.


The template can only be interpreted by the biometric engine. If one were to look at the template of a fingerprint, it would not be recognizable, as the information is a set of numbers and is typically encrypted.

The philosophy behind a customer loyalty program is simple: Repeat customers are rewarded and businesses increase sales. It’s a basic but powerful strategy. Whether the goal is to continually increase sales or to jumpstart sluggish revenue, customer-loyalty programs appear to have become a staple for many large corporations.





It’s important for business owners to keep in mind that customer loyalty isn’t just for big businesses – a well-designed program can help any size business scale and reach new heights.  




Here’s why customer loyalty programs matter to small retail businesses:








Having a customer-loyalty program could help you increase repeat customers, which, in turn, could boost your business’s revenue.


By providing loyalty programs for current customers, small-business owners are not only saying thank you but are also motivating them to continue to be their brand ambassadors.


They can easily spread the word about a business to their professional, personal, and social networks, helping small-business owners increase their customer base even more. 





It can be difficult for a small business to compete with a large brand considering that most large brands have more locations, resources, marketing dollars, and the ability to offer lower prices.


However, a good customer-loyalty program is an easy way for small businesses to show their personal side and remain competitive in spaces dominated by big business.


For example, many consumers may not love the coffee at a big-brand coffee chain but do love the fact they can earn points through their purchases and save money in the long run.  


However, it would be very simple and cost-effective for a small coffee-shop owner with quality coffee to do the same.






Customer-loyalty programs don’t have to drain small businesses’ budgets. While some corporations spill millions of dollars into loyalty programs, small businesses don’t have to follow the same tactic to achieve promising results.


In today’s computer era, cost-effective out-of-box rewards programs are just as fruitful as the ones put in place by bigger players. 


Customer-retention programs are not just for big brand name players. They can provide many benefits for small businesses, such as increasing sales, helping them stand out, and developing a stronger relationship with their customers -- and technology is making it easier and cheaper than ever before to launch one.
