We worked with Biyo to build out their point of sale system based on infrared palm scanning
Biyo is a biometric POS made by a US entrepreneur to replace plastic cards with palm print scanning. We took over the MVP project from a previous developer with a goal to add new features and make the product more stable and maintainable.
Biometric POS (point of service) is a solution that applies modern technology to mitigate the friction and inconvenience of retail payments.
A shopper places their palm on a contactless scanner that identifies their credentials and associated payment details, then authenticates the payment.
An MVP release of Biyo Wallet was in place before we began work. The initial version needed to be stabilised and covered with tests to enable maintainability. We also added new features to the platform.
New functionality requested by the client included building a Point of Service UI for wait staff in the hospitality industry and a consumer-facing app. On the back-end, the Biyo team pointed out specific bug fixes and optimisations that the API required.
We worked closely with the Biyo team to iterate on their palm vein pattern recognition, writing logic to decipher the raw data gathered by the Infrared palm scanner.
Under direction from the Biyo design team, we built a dashboard where an admin can manage products, payments, and accurately control cash flow, separated by work shift.
The Biyo Wallet system consists of multiple, interconnected nodes. A stationary POS, an Android device that functions as a display and payment terminal for the consumer, an Android device as portable POS and a back-end in the cloud.
With an eye on the future, both software and hardware are separately available under different delivery license types.
We developed on top of the existing software stack, respecting the original logic. These are the exact changes we made to the product:
We have significantly reworked the existing code base. It resulted in a production ready uptime.
A new application for wait staff was created to serve clients on the go.
Biyo Wallet was featured by Fox Business, BBC, NBC and The Verge.
We’d love to discuss your project
