What is Fingerprint Logon?

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.

How Does Fingerprint Logon Work?

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.

Handling and processing cash costs retailers money. This post looks at some of the ways automated cash management can help cut costs through more efficient and secure processes.


1. Reducing the Cost of Inefficiency

The combined effect of dedicating time and resources to the manual handling, processing and securing of cash is costly because it is so inefficient.


Automated cash management cuts the time spent working with cash, reduces the number of cash-related procedures and limits the number of people required to be involved in cash processes.


2. Reducing the Cost of Counting Errors

Counting cash manually is time-consuming and prone to inaccuracy as well as being a security risk.

Automated cash management effectively eliminates cash differences altogether. Retailers always know how much cash is where and reconciliation is instant.


3. Reducing the Cost of Time and Resources

Manual counting involves a high level of staff and managerial involvement in cash processes, particularly when errors need to be tracked and reconciled.

Cash management systems automate all the functions of the cash office, from preparation of floats to counting back at the end of the business day, giving staff more time to focus on the customer.


Cashiers can adopt a more sales-oriented role and a manager’s time can be spent on activities more valuable to the business than counting and re-counting cash.
