a LEADING technology firm has teamed up with a top alcohol retailer after developing a innovative ID machine.
Company Time2 Biometric Clocking Systems, of Armthorpe, has bagged a contract with Barnsley-based Rythm and Booze to use what they claim is the Uk’s first ID finger scanner and staff clocking system.
Valid ID.NET is used to keep track of staff hours and uses a terminal which takes unique finger templates.
Also, customers who are challenged for their ID are registered onto the system and once they provide their age their finger template can be used next time they come to purchase alcohol.
A total of 83 stores are set to have the system fitted within the next six months.
