Magstar Announces Biometric Finger Verification Feature in New Software Release for Total POS

Toronto, Ontario, Jan. 11, 2017 – Magstar Inc., an ERP software leader in the retail marketplace, today announced an upgrade to version 11 of its Total Point-of-Sale (POS) software offering, which now includes biometric finger verification technology. In addition, the release includes new security features, improved performance, and even greater ease-of-use.

Developed for mid-sized specialty retailers who are struggling to run their stores with generic best-of-breed technology, Total POS is an award-winning solution that seamlessly interfaces with head office supply chain applications for full visibility across a retail chain.

“With the latest version of Total POS, we are adding greater efficiency and flexibility as well as numerous new features requested by our fast-growing customer base,” says Steven Greenwood, President of Magstar Inc. “Retailers can now work on dual screens, setup timed promotions, print & email shortened receipts, and undergo simpler daily cash balancing that is integrated with their back-office audit process.”

The newly introduced biometric finger verification technology is a cost effective way to help retailers protect their customers from data security breaches. Biometrics is an automated verification process that recognizes store staff based on their physiological characteristics. This feature eliminates buddy punching, prevents unauthorized overrides, and reduces transactional complexities and nuances.

Retailers can come see the new biometrics feature in operation by visiting Magstar’s booth #3178 at NRF Retail’s BIG Show 2017. For more information on Total Retail and Total POS, please visit our website at
