Honeywell and pcAmerica Announce ID Scanner Integration

Honeywell Helps pcAmerica Prevent Underage Buyers from Getting Hands On Age-Restricted Products

Scanners and new soint-of-sale software streamline age verification

BLACKWOOD, NJ, September 4, 2008 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced a new solution that takes the guesswork out of age verification. Industry-leading developer of point-of-sale systems, pcAmerica, recently introduced new software that integrates seamlessly with Honeywell’s EasyID™ software plug-in.

EasyID parses bar code data found on government-issued identification cards for applications involving age verification or automatic electronic form population. This plug-in eliminates the need for host system software to process the encoded information contained within 1D and 2D bar codes found on documents such as military issued identification cards, driver’s licenses and driver’s permits.

pcAmerica enhanced their Cash Register Express (CRE) and Restaurant Pro Express (RPE) products by incorporating age-verification functionality. CRE is a point-of-sale system designed for retail environments such as convenience, liquor and grocery stores. When an age-restricted product is scanned using an EasyID-enabled scanner, the software will prompt the cashier to scan the customer’s ID. The monitor will clearly display an ID ACCEPTED or ID REJECTED message, depending upon the customer’s date of birth. CRE prevents the sale of an age-restricted product to a purchaser with an ID REJECTED status, ensuring regulatory compliance.

RPE is ideal for entertainment venues. The system’s new ID Check mode allows operators to continuously scan identification cards. Similarly, the monitor will display a message indicating if the patron can legally purchase alcohol or be admitted to the venue.

In addition to performing age verification, both of pcAmerica’s point-of-sale systems are capable of performing automatic electronic form population. With a single scan of a driver’s license, retailers and restaurateurs can use license data to quickly and accurately complete loyalty program applications.

"I’m excited to offer our Cash Register Express and Restaurant Pro Express point-of-sale software packages with Honeywell’s innovative EasyID technology. I am confident that Metrologic, now part of Honeywell, will continue to deliver advanced solutions that allow pcAmerica to offer cutting-edge point-of-sale systems to our clients," says David Gosman, chief executive officer of pcAmerica.

Darius Adamczyk, president of Honeywell Imaging and Mobility, added, "We are proud that our relationship with pcAmerica has resulted in the development of a complete age-verification solution. We invite our customers to experience the intuitive age-verification process that this complete solution delivers."

pcAmerica’s CRE and RPE point-of-sale systems with age verification functionality are currently compatible with Honeywell’s MS7580 Genesis™ and MS1690 Focus®. The entire system, including the customer’s choice of EasyID-enabled Genesis or Focus scanners, can be purchased directly through pcAmerica.
