Intellicheck, a company that specializes in identification authentication products, has announced that Northern Tool + Equipment is now using Retail ID Mobile at 43 stores in Texas, Florida and Georgia, according to a press release.
Retail ID Mobile provides real-time customer identification authentication in an attempt to prevent fraud, according to the release. Northern Tool + Equipment is using the product via handheld Android devices for large in-store purchases and credit card applications.
“Our company has been built on our commitment to providing customers with quality products and the best in customer service,” Joe Apollini, Northern Tool + Equipment senior vice president of retail stores, said in the release. “We understand that rising incidents of fraud have consumers across the country apprehensive about security. We are taking a proactive step to assure our customers they can always shop with confidence and we, as a business, can protect our enterprise from the losses that come with fraudulent account openings and transactions.”
Intellicheck said Retail ID Mobile appeals to customers who increasingly seek retailers who respond to their concerns over payment security and identity fraud. Mobile, real-time, and cloud-based identification authentication eliminates the need for point-of-sale system integration, and does away with customer delays, while allowing retailers to realize the benefits of accurate, real-time fraud prevention, according to the release.
“We welcome Northern Tool + Equipment to our growing number of retail partners who recognize that incidents of fraud have become so frequent that protecting their customers and their business is crucial,” Intellicheck CEO Bryan Lewis said in the release.
