AVT Partners with MedBox to Provide New Biometric Fingerprint Recognition for Secure Automated Retailing
CORONA, Calif., Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — AVT, Inc. (formerly Automated Vending Technologies) (Ticker: AVTC.PK) (www.autoretail.com) has partnered with MedBox to provide a new line of Secure Automated Retailing Systems that feature MedBox’s patented Biometric Fingerprint Recognition System.
This new system provides extra security for automated retailing applications where the recognition and verification of the customer is critical.
AVT worked with MedBox to integrate its patented identity verification system into automated prescription medicine dispensing machines. Pre-registration into a private database, which includes taking a fingerprint sample, is required before a person can use the machine. The MedBox system can accommodate a wide variety of medicines and dosages, and offers benefits to both the patrons that receive their medication though the machines as well as the pharmacies that utilize the technology. The patrons get quick and convenient access to their medication, while the pharmacies gain increased inventory awareness, unparalleled accuracy, and lower overhead costs.
AVT is now using the licensed technology to create secure automated retailing solutions for companies that want to sell high-ticket items in a self-service automated environment, and need extra verification to prevent credit card fraud. Current projects include development of secure systems for major retailers in the jewelry and watch industry.
“Soon, customers will be able to purchase a $65,000 diamond necklace or Rolex watch at a beautiful automated system, watch as the robotic arm gently places the package in the receiving tray, and have their new gift in hand in under 2 minutes,” said Shannon Illingworth, Founder of AVT, Inc. “And with our Biometrics Fingerprint Recognition System, it is all done in a secure and trusted environment.”
