Empower Federal Credit Union Chooses ARCA Cash Recycling Solution

CM18 Simplifies Everyday Operations for Fulton West Branch

Mebane, NC (Feb. 19, 2013) - ARCA is helping Empower Federal Credit Union accelerate and simplify cash management with the CM18, the next-generation cash recycler that takes the place of exposed teller drawers.

After careful research and consideration, Empower FCU’s Fulton West Branch in Fulton, NY, selected ARCA as its cash automation partner. ARCA’s CM18 automates cash in, cash out, balancing and inventory. It also works seamlessly with the branch’s existing software environment and requires no double posting – one of the primary reasons Empower chose ARCA’s solution.

According to Mary Potts, branch supervisor, ARCA’s solution keeps business running smoothly because cash doesn’t have to be marked before it’s loaded or counted before it’s deposited.

“I can sum up the CM18 in three words: nice, fast and easy,” said Potts. “The old equipment took more than 45 minutes to fill, but we can have ARCA’s machine ready in 10 minutes or less.”
