ARCA’s new CM18 Solo certified by Compuflex

The world’s first personal cash recycler makes great first impression

MEBANE, NC — May 10, 2016 — ARCA announced today the certification of the CM18 Solo, the company’s new personal cash recycler, with the Universal Cash Management (UCM) suite of software from Compuflex.

As a result of this software certification, all the financial institutions and retailers currently using the Compuflex UCM software suite can now immediately and seamlessly operate the CM18 Solo with no change to their applications and user interfaces.

“We are pleased with the integration of our CM18 Solo with the software solutions from Compuflex,” said Aubrey Meador, ARCA’s president. “This is just one more way we can help branches become more flexible and efficient.”

The recently launched CM18 Solo — designed with the individual user in mind — can be positioned discreetly under a desk, ready to handle cash transactions, or beautifully blend in while other services are being sold. It is plug compatible with the currently supported CM18 Recycler.

“The ARCA CM18 Solo is an intriguing product whose footprint, overall design simplicity and backward interface compatibility with existing products should result in very favorable market acceptance,” said Jim Clements, founder and CEO of Compuflex. “You get maximum value out of this automation investment.”

Despite its short amount of time on the market so far, the CM18 Solo — a little brother to ARCA’s full feature CM18 Cash Recycler — is generating quite a buzz in the financial industry.

“We are seeing a big response from our customers on the launch of Solo as an addition to the CM18 family,” said Meador. “As branches continue to evolve, the need for smaller, more cost-effective cash handling tools is growing. Financial institutions can now tailor their branch operations to meet today’s needs, but remain flexible for changes that are sure to come in the future.”
