REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalPersona, Inc., a global provider of authentication and endpoint protection solutions, today announced Yogurtland restaurants across the U.S., Mexico and Guam are addressing Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance requirements and reducing payroll fraud with DigitalPersona® fingerprint biometrics. DigitalPersona U.are.U® Fingerprint Readers eliminate the need for franchise managers to remember constantly-changing login passwords at each store location, and also help eliminate buddy punching by employees. This increases operational efficiency and reduces costs at Yogurtland locations.
Employees at Yogurtland previously used 4-digit PIN codes at point-of-sale terminals to access time-and-attendance and POS systems, while managers used swipe cards for override authorizations. One of the biggest operational challenges was complying with the PCI Data Security Standards requirement to change a user's complex password every 90 days. Franchisee managers and owners with multiple locations found it difficult to remember the changing passwords, as not all of their stores would change passwords at the same time requiring managers to remember multiple complex passwords. Forgotten passwords resulted in frequent calls to IT support at all hours of the day. By using U.are.U Fingerprint Readers with their Micros Systems, Inc. point of sale software, managers and owners do not need to remember complex passwords which are different for each location. They simply needed to touch the fingerprint reader to release the password.
