“Six months ago, we implemented our biometric fingerprint reader at every register in all of our stores and it has proven to be a phenomenal tool” said Steve Patten, Director of IT for The Alpine Shop. “It has given us more control over employee activity and enables us to audit trail every sale by sales person. The fingerprint reader has been a real timesaver at the register and works very well with Celerant. It works flawlessly to tie our employees to each sale, ensuring that every discount, return, and gift card transaction is accounted for. In the future we also plan to use it beyond the point of sale to easily track staff schedules as well.”
