The Pinellas County School District, seated in Clearwater, Fla., has deployed biometric technology to provide a more reliable and secure method for handling school food service program transactions.
The fully integrated solution combines Fujitsu PalmSecure biometric technology with MCS Software’s point-of-sale system to provide enhanced security without student PINs or fingerprints scanners.
Unlike other readers, the PalmSecure device never comes into contact with the student’s skin, making it extremely hygienic, non-intrusive and unrestricted by external factors such as skin types and conditions.
The Fujitsu PalmSecure sensor uses a near-infrared light to capture a student’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users. It assures the student’s identity thereby reducing waste and impersonation.
