Pizza Hut Franchisee Saves Dough by Slicing Payroll Fraud and Leavening Store Revenue with Digital Persona Fingerprint Biometrics
Date:7/12/2011

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalPersona, Inc., a global provider of authentication and endpoint protection solutions, today announced that Pizza Hut™ franchisee Rage, Inc. has rolled out DigitalPersona® U.are.U® Fingerprint Biometrics in 118 Pizza Hut locations throughout the east coast in South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia to reduce employee theft. By deploying fingerprint biometrics as a part of their Speedline Point-of-Sale (POS) systems, the Pizza Hut restaurants have improved employee accountability, reduced unauthorized discounts and decreased payroll fraud.

Prior to installing DigitalPersona U.are.U Fingerprint Readers, Rage's Pizza Hut store managers used simple ID numbers to authorize discounts, overrides and voids. Employees also had their own ID numbers to clock in and out of the payroll system. Because managers are often required to handle multiple requests at the same time, they would share authorization credentials with employees to prevent delays in customer service. Unfortunately, this practice frequently led to fraudulent discounts, causing cash register shrink. Furthermore, some employees were also buddy-punching, clocking in co-workers who weren't actually working. To address these issues, Rage deployed DigitalPersona fingerprint biometrics at their Pizza Hut locations, eliminating the use of ID codes and accurately tying managers and cashiers to their actions.

"DigitalPersona U.are.U Fingerprint Readers have provided us with a fast and simple way to reduce inventory shrink and eliminate payroll fraud," said David Logsdon, director of MIS at Rage, Inc. "This has led to improved revenues across all of our locations."

DigitalPersona's U.are.U Fingerprint Readers have been integrated into more than 90 percent of the biometric POS terminals in the U.S. and are supported by a variety of commercial POS applications. DigitalPersona fingerprint readers are compact, easy to integrate and provide a professional appearance designed for restaurant and retail environments.

"Our fingerprint biometrics effectively address the most common forms of employee theft in quick-serve restaurants such as Pizza Hut," said Jim Fulton, vice president of marketing at DigitalPersona. "Our highly-reliable fingerprint readers are simple to deploy and use, enabling fast employee adoption and immediate return on investment."
