While anti-fraud and anti-theft features are becoming more commonplace for POS systems, anti-identity theft has proven to be a more difficult task to integrate into systems until now. Stolen, fake or fraudulent cards have been extremely difficult to flag at the actual POS device, since systems have not had a way to visually recognize a consumer. Revel’s in-system facial confirmation feature changes this, and the secret goes back to the same social and cloud-based aspects of the Revel POS that originally put its technology on the map.
Like the other user-friendly features of the Revel iPad POS, this novel photo security technology is also incredibly simple to use. At the time of sale, the employee takes and swipes the credit card per usual. At that point, the Revel iPad POS will pull the customer’s photo from their Revel account, which can easily be created through online Facebook integration. The POS will then check for visual verification and prompt the employee to verify that the picture shown matches the person using the credit card, consequently removing any threat of stolen PIN codes or cards, while at the same time providing the easiest, fastest and most obvious form of identity verification. Accounts can easily be set up at www.revelution.com.
