Retail Pro International has announced a new partnership with M2SYS Technology designed to help retailers maximise their loss prevention strategies and strengthen PCI compliance. Recognising the importance of using affordable biometric identification to help companies streamline employee log-in, increase efficiencies, optimise productivity, and boost profits, Retail Pro will position RightPOS as an alternative to the traditional swipe card or personal identification number (PIN). RightPOS is a flexible, affordable biometric identification system that seamlessly interfaces with the Retail Pro retail management software.
RightPOS is already reaping dividends for many retailers. The solution solidifies role-based security to abolish unauthorised system access and establishes a concrete audit trail to provide irrefutable proof in cases of abuse. Plus, biometric identification holds employees accountable for their actions and improves productivity by eliminating barcode ID cards or passwords, which are often stolen, lost or forgotten. Most importantly, by using RightPOS, retailers can avoid costly legal expenses and compliance fines through stronger validation requirements and avoid security breaches by preventing unauthorized access from using borrowed or stolen passwords.
Powered by the M2SYS multi-modal Hybrid Biometric Platform, RightPOS offers support for four different biometric engines, such as Fujitsu's PalmSecure palm vein biometrics device, ensuring that 100% of employees are reliably and consistently identified.
"We recognise Retail Pro as an industry leader in specialty retail point of sale software," said Michael Trader, President of M2SYS. "Our RightPOS biometric identification solution perfectly complements their retail point of sale software and supports Retail Pro's goal of providing solutions that best fit their customers' needs. RightPOS demands a higher level of employee accountability and is a smart way for retailers to strengthen loss prevention policies that help eliminate shrinkage while protecting data. In addition, we can't overstate the value that it adds with respect to PCI compliance and its unmatched ability to verify individual identity without a shadow of a doubt."
"This is a smart partnership that will help to enhance our commitment to delivering cost effective, scalable, and secure retail management solutions," noted Kerry Lemos, Retail Pro's CEO. "RightPOS accelerates our intent of bringing world-class automation to retailers across the globe in an effort to achieve optimal performance. We are confident that this offering strengthens our model of providing scalable and adaptable POS solutions and is an important piece of the puzzle for retailers that are struggling to identify ways to strengthen loss prevention and maximise return on investment."
