Radiant Systems Selects BIO-key(R) Biometric Software for POS Solution

Contract for biometric authentication software improves security and

customer convenience for POS terminal solutions

WALL, N.J., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BKYI), a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety solutions, and Radiant Systems, Inc., a leading supplier of innovative technology to the hospitality and retail industries, announced today that Radiant has selected BIO-key's fingerprint identification technology for integration into its biometrically enabled Point of Sale (POS) terminals.

Radiant Systems, as part of its mission to provide the retail market with superior products and solutions, was a first mover in the introduction of biometrically enabled POS systems in 2005. After two years of market experience, Radiant recognized the need to upgrade their biometric software platform to accommodate larger customers with greater accuracy while allowing for device independence among their many applications and form factors.

"We evaluated a wide range of biometric options and selected BIO-key's VST(TM) solution because it delivered superior speed and accuracy and works with every major fingerprint reader," stated Bob Stone, Director of Product Management for Radiant Systems. "Given the strong interest and increasing demand we see for biometrics across our product line, we recognized the need to upgrade to a solution that can be deployed in the retail environment, where system response time, user convenience and accuracy are critical, no matter how large the user base."

With the BIO-key fingerprint biometric solution integrated into the POS terminal, identification cards and passwords are replaced with the simple touch of an employee's or customer's finger to positively establish their identity to the POS system. In addition to being more convenient, the BIO-key solution eliminates the possibility of sharing passwords or identity cards, and assures that manager overrides are properly authenticated.

"We are pleased that Radiant, a world leading POS supplier, recognized the value of our VST solution and embedded it into their application. It speaks volumes that a company such as Radiant - keenly aware of the issues involved in implementing a biometric solution - would select BIO-key," stated Michael DePasquale, CEO of BIO-key. "We are excited to be partnering with Radiant and believe this contract reflects the traction we are seeing in the commercial and civil markets for our biometric technologies. We believe this and other recent announcements, including the National Voter Registration project in Bangladesh, indicate increased activity in our biometric business this quarter and beyond."
