Sam Ash to Use Kronos Biometrics in Retail Stores

Oct. 25, 2004
Company moves to workforce management system involving biometric readers for time and attendance, restricted data

Sam Ash Musc, a retailer of CD-based music and other entertainment, recently experienced high employee growth, and as a result, this national retailer with 45 stores spread across 16 states has switched to an automated workforce system.

As part of the process, the company is in the process of using Kronos' 4500 Touch ID biometric terminals to replace the need for badge systems.

Besides alleviating the managerial headaches of lost badges, the biometric terminals also allow employees to view restricted data such as their commission and sales numbers. The system uses Kronos "Workforce Central" suite of products and is designed to integrate with payroll and point-of-sales (POS) systems.
