CellMax Systems Teams With PCS to Provide Voice-based School Lunchroom ID
TEL AVIV, Israel - CellMax Systems and point-of-sale (POS) system producer PCS Revenue Control Systems jointly developed a voice recognition-based identification, verification, and payment system for school cafeterias. The system, which will be piloted in Q1 2007, has an initial potential market of 800 U.S. school districts.
The system is designed to track meal accountability, enhance student per minute processing time, and increase line speed.
By saying a name and student number, students' account data and photo come up on the food server's screen, they are charged automatically, and the right lunch is placed before them. The system integrates CellMax Systems' physical biometric technology into all POS terminals offered by PCS. CellMax Systems' natural speech-based VioMetrics solution will be added to PCS' existing cardless ID product range, which includes picture roster, numeric keypad, fingerprint, and/or barcode scanner.
Sales of licenses will commence immediately after the initial commercial rollout in July 2007. CellMax Systems and PCS plan to launch the system first in the U.S., followed by Latin America and Asia.
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
