Manchester office trials finger scan payments

Written by Peter Walker

Employees and visitors to office space concept All Work and Social’s XYZ building in Manchester will be able to pay for food and drink using finger scan biometrics as part of a trial beginning this autumn.

Launched in partnership with Fingopay, using its VeinID scanning technology, customers can link ‘vein signatures’ in their fingers with payment cards.

Anthony Powell, managing director at All Work & Social, stated: “With Fingopay, we are enhancing everyday life for XYZ Work and XYZ Social members and guests by giving them a convenient and secure new way to pay, with cashless and convenient biometric payments and transactions.”

The system has already been deployed across town at Manchester City Football Club’s Etihad Stadium, with contract caterer F3 implementing it at Joe’s Bar in the East Stand.

Fingopay is working alongside Greater Manchester Council, local consultant CityCo and the city’s inward investment agency MIDAS.

Since 2015, Fingopay has carried out similar trials within Worldpay's headquarters, Proud Camden bar and the Costcutter on Brunel University's campus.

According to a Goode Intelligence report at the end of last year, there will be over 2.6 billion biometric payment users and 579 million biometric payment cards in use by 2023.
