Set Goal

First things first, define what you want to know from them. It can differ from business to business. For example, if you are in a retail business you might be interested to see the reason for purchasing your product, how often they buy from your store, what are the types of product they usually buy, what are their favorites product, etc. The whole idea is to know as much as possible about them and then serve them accordingly.

Establish Convenient Identification Process

While establishing the customer identification process, make sure it is convenient and secure. Customer hates time-consuming procedures. They would hate it if you asked the same questions every time they purchase from your store or access your bank.  For example, asking for their name, their phone number, etc. Using biometric technology is the best way to bring convenience in the process. The process will take less than a minute to proceed. The system only required their biometric for identification instead of asking their name or phone number or lengthy questions.

Choose the Right identification Technology

Based on your business type you can choose single modality based biometric technology or the multi-modal biometric system. For example, in healthcare iris recognition is popular because the lack of contact in the procedure inhibits the spread of germs. On the other hand in retail, businesses mostly choose fingerprint since it is a convenient and popular form of identification. However, you can select a multimodal biometric system to open more doors for your customers.

Buy the Right Device

Now you are almost ready. Now buy the best biometric devices for your process. Make sure you buy the best one from the market that serves your objective. Make sure your devices have liveness detection technology. Liveness detection technology will save you from spoofing. Using the anti-spoofing device will help you to avoid the unauthorized consumption of unique service such as discount offers, promotional offers, etc.
