Hooters Deploys Fingerprinting Technology for Loss Prevention

Hooters of America, LLC has deployed U.are.U Fingerprint Readers from DigitalPersona to strengthen its loss prevention efforts. The DigitalPersona fingerprint readers and ITWercs Point-of-Sale (POS) software enable nearly 4,000 employees to use fingerprint readers at Hooters restaurants to authenticate transactions, as well as clock in and out for their shifts. With DigitalPersona fingerprint biometrics, Hooters has reduced both transaction and payroll fraud.
Hooters IT staff found it challenging to manage and track unauthorized voids using the previous PIN and swipe card security system. Hooters sought technology that could tie individuals to each transaction, and ensure manager oversight was provided when necessary. After successfully using U.are.U Fingerprint Readers at its Texas locations, Hooters expanded to other locations. Fingerprint authentication is also used for ensuring accurate time-and-attendance system for all employees. Hooters has already reported a reduction in both transaction and payroll fraud, and has eliminated the cost of constantly replacing lost or stolen swipe cards.
