Boston Firefighter's Credit Union Chooses ARCA

Mebane, NC – August 23, 2012

Boston Firefighter’s Credit union chose ARCA’s CM18 for their vault teller in September 2011 and almost a year later they are still raving about the benefits of their new machine.

Cathy Boucher, V.P. Operations for the credit union commented; “Our ARCA cash recycler has been a great addition to the retail branch. Our tellers appreciate the ability to process vault buys and sells without having to find a supervisor. Our manager’s appreciate the efficiencies gained by not being interrupted to assist with vault transactions. The daily machine balancing is easy, accurate and efficient. ”

Boucher also reported that it took less than a day to train the tellers and the CM18 was introduced seamlessly into their operations: “The implementation and training were handled in a very accommodating way, so as not to detract from branch daily activities. “

The CM18 Cash Recycler automatically counts, authenticates and safeguards cash deposited by tellers. The same cash becomes immediately available to be dispensed for teller cash withdrawals. This advanced technology eliminates the need for tellers to count cash both at the teller line and at the vault, which normally takes 2 to 3 hours of a teller’s time per day. This technology improves teller accuracy, reduces member wait times, lowers staffing requirements and ultimately enhances the member experience.
