ATLANTA, March 21 /PRNewswire/ — M2SYS Technology announced today the
completion of an ongoing case study with point of sale solutions partner,
LCR Limited. In early 2006, LCR integrated M2SYS´ flagship fingerprint
software, Bio-Plugin(TM), into their QuickDine(TM) school lunchroom
management software to provide an alternative to magnetic swipe-cards that
were previously used to identify students purchasing lunch. Comparison of
data from the new biometric based QuickDine(TM) system to data taken prior
to the implementation of Bio- Plugin(TM) proved that line wait times
dramatically decreased and revenues from lunch sales increased an average
of 20%.

LCR´s QuickDine(TM) system consists of two components. The first
component is comprised of wall-mounted cash repository unit where students
can identify themselves using the attached fingerprint scanner. Once
identified, students can deposit funds directly into their accounts. The
second component consists of POS tills that are connected to these
fingerprint scanners. Lunch items are tallied with the touch screen
interface, making the process of buying a school lunch remarkably simple.
The child scans their finger and the sale is completed.

"One pleasant surprise resulting from the implementation of the
fingerprint identification system was that cash deposits into student
accounts increased twenty percent from the previous year," stated LCR CEO,
Robert Kearns. "Parents enjoy knowing their child´s lunch money is
immediately deposited into a secure account which can only be accessed by
the child." Revenue gains coupled with the efficiencies created by
eliminating magnetic cards demonstrates these systems pay for themselves."

"The great story here is the tangible benefits our fingerprint software
provides the schools," explained M2SYS president, Michael Trader. "The
increase in student cash deposits has a direct impact on the school´s
revenues, providing it with the resources and ability to improve the
learning environment of each student."
