Papa John's restaurants in China are now using DigitalPersona fingerprint biometrics to secure employees' and managers' daily tasks. DigitalPersona Inc. is a provider of biometric identity verification solutions.

The solution has been deployed at restaurant brands domestically, including KFC and Popeyes.

Now, more than 30 company-owned Papa John's restaurants in northern China are using DigitalPersona's U.are.U Fingerprint Readers with NCR Advanced Restaurant point-of-sale software to record employee time and attendance, as well as authorize overrides and discounts.

Papa John's employees previously used smart cards to record their time and attendance. Managers used the cards to authorize discounts, voids and overrides. However, smart cards can be shared, lost or forgotten. Papa John's sought a solution that provides their employees and managers with a secure and convenient method when performing daily tasks.

DigitalPersona fingerprint readers allow employees to clock in for their shift and managers to approve voids and overrides with a touch of their finger.

"The DigitalPersona U.are.U Fingerprint Readers save our managers and employees time, increase productivity and eliminate the costs of managing smart cards," Papa John's Beijing said in a statement.

The company is recommending the use of the solution to franchised restaurants in the market as well.

DigitalPersona U.are.U Fingerprint Readers can be found in many biometrically-enabled POS terminals and are supported by a variety of commercial POS applications.

"Fingerprint biometrics has become the authentication method of choice for quick-serve restaurants," said Gary Oberman, director of worldwide POS sales at DigitalPersona. "Fingerprint readers are a mature, reliable technology that can be deployed quickly and easily, enabling an immediate return on investment."
