    Togo’s is a fast casual sandwich shop with more than 250 franchisee locations on the West Coast. Prior to fingerprint biometrics, Togo’s was using passwords to access their point-of-sale (POS) terminals. However, management found it challenging to track access to the cash drawer because passwords can be shared. Togo’s turned to Crossmatch for a biometrics-based solution to eliminate passwords when accessing the POS station.
