Leading Provider of Software Solutions for Foodservice Industry to Provide School Customers with Robust Fingerprint Biometrics Software for Lunch Line Student Identification

ATLANTA, GA – June 29 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — M2SYS Technology, a biometric technology research and development company, announced today it has formed a partnership with Horizon Software, a leading provider of foodservice management technology. This partnership will benefit school customers by enabling Horizon to integrate and distribute M2SYS’ cutting edge fingerprint software technology, Bio-Plugin(TM), within their FastLane(TM) school POS solution.

The software application, now enhanced with fingerprint functionality, is currently available to Horizon’s established customer base of more than 14,000 schools across the U.S. In addition to FastLane(TM), many of Horizon’s other POS solutions will also soon be available with the M2SYS fingerprint software.

“After evaluating several solutions on the market, we chose M2SYS because they allowed us to integrate a truly seamless, server-based solution with minimal development effort,” commented Robbie Payne, Senior Vice President of Research and Development. “Bio-Plugin(tm) allowed us to address the demand for fingerprint technology in our market without the headache of having to learn and support the intricacies of biometric technology ourselves. Now, we can provide this technology to our customers, while remaining focused on our core product.”

“Since schools and parents are becoming more educated about the fallacy of privacy risk, the demand for fingerprint technology in schools is increasing exponentially,” according to Michael Trader, President of M2SYS. “By integrating Bio-Plugin(tm), Horizon will be able to help their school customers take advantage of the benefits of biometrics. Schools can use this new technology to secure back office operations, eliminate costs associated with student ID cards and lunch tickets, increase efficiency in the lunch line, and keep more accurate records of attendance,” Trader added.
