Waterloo Food Service uses PaySchools Point of Sales system in conjunction with Identifier Biometric finger scanners to process sales in the cafeteria.

When a student is enrolled an account is established for each student and the index finger on each hand of each student is scanned into the biometric system to identify the student when they go through the meal service line.

This allows students to move through the meal line faster and prevents overt identification of students who qualify for the free/reduced meal program.

IF a student does not enroll in finger scanning the student MUST learn & enter their 6 digit PIN each time at the Point of Sale.

Some fact about biometric finger scanning
