McDonald’s bolsters loss prevention efforts by deploying biometric authentication system
Fast food giant McDonald’s has decide to take a more proactive approach to its loss prevention and employee management efforts by piloting new biometric authentication technology on its point-of-sale (POS) system at select restaurants across the United States, a news report has been able to reveal.
Under the scheme, the fast food franchise has installed a fingerprint device on cash registers which require a fingerprint scan to activate the system. Implementing a biometric authentication system will help the loss prevention team detect fraud, as well as aid the operations and management team keep track of which employee has access to a certain register, determine who made a specific sale and monitor revenue.
Additionally, McDonald’s is exploring the use of a biometric scanner for time and attendance to combat time and attendance fraud. “There’s a lot of times people just punch in their buddies because their buddy is running late,” Robert Holm, senior director of safety and security for McDonald’s USA, says. “It’s very difficult to manage if you’ve got 60 or 70 employees under one roof in one restaurant, so we’re also using biometrics to manage our labor hours and we’re seeing some really, really good results.”
