We’ve all been there: you go out shopping, you’re going through the motions and making progress, and suddenly analysis paralysis overwhelms you. Maybe you’re trapped in the dressing room, and you’ve picked out too many options. Maybe you’re standing in the aisle and looking at 20 different handbags and you don’t even know where to start. Or maybe you’ve picked an item you want, but your mind has now traveled back in time to philosophy class and suddenly thinking about the difference between want and need.
New Look is a leading global fashion retailer with six new stores in China and plans to expand to 100 stores by 2017. Headquartered in the U.K., this international brand has 1,150 locations across mainland Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the U.K. As part of its foray into China, New Look wanted an alternative to password-based identification to improve time and attendance tracking and eliminate the potential for payroll fraud.
A leading drug store chain with over 4,500 stores in the United States is using biometrics within their pharmacies, as well as at their point-of-sale (POS) terminals.

This ensures the highest degree of accountability and accuracy for its customers.
Hooters of America, LLC based in Atlanta, Georgia, operates and franchises more than 450 Hooters causal dining restaurants in 28 countries. Everyday, nearly 4,000 Hooters employees conduct transactions, as well as clock in and out for their shifts. Facing increasing concerns with its traditional PIN and swipe card security system, Hooters turned to Crossmatch for a biometrics-based solution to strengthen their loss prevention efforts, improve productivity and reduce transaction and payroll fraud.
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. The solution has allowed Togo’s to easily move to single-drawer accountability - one employee, one drawer. Now when balancing the drawer at the end of a shift, there is only one person responsible, making it much easier on management.
