At 118 Pizza Hut restaurants in South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia, employees give their fingerprints instead of ID numbers to clock in and out for the day.
The restaurants are using DigitalPersona fingerprint readers for transactions like overrides, voids and discount authorizations.
Store managers used to use ID numbers, but would share authorization credentials with employees to prevent delays in customer service, a practice that frequently led to fraudulent discounts. Plus, some employees were “buddy-punching”—clocking in co-workers who weren’t actually working.
The switch to fingerprint biometrics has improved revenues by reducing fraud, a company exec confirms.
