In this report, Technavio highlights the emergence of biometric EMV POS terminals as one of the key trends expected to boost the global POS terminals market in the retail sector:
Emergence of biometric EMV POS terminals
Introduction of biometric EMV POS systems can help secure transactions. Biometric EMV POS system prevents employees from sharing access and tracks their activities. Also, EMV POS system helps in the faster transaction, thereby leading to faster checkout. Transactions using debit or credit cards are time-consuming, as it requires swiping, entering PIN, waiting for the transaction to be completed, and getting the printed receipt. Many restaurants prefer a self-checkout system, which in turn, increases the adoption of biometric POS for shorter checkout time. For example, in 2017, almost 150 hotels, clubs, and restaurants in Singapore planned to adopt a biometric EMV POS system, developed by Touche, a start-up manufacturer of fingerprint scanners. Customers can link their fingerprints to their credit cards or debit cards to do further transactions. Also, in 2015, Visa announced new biometric specifications for EMV card transactions.
“In India, Yes Bank partnered with LastMile.Mobi to introduce Iris EMV POS terminals across the country. This system provides various features, which helped make purchases through iris recognition technology and carry out bank activities such as cash deposits and withdrawals,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for computing devices research.
