Counting cash takes a toll
You see it every day. In retail businesses around the world, people are hunched over, counting cash by hand. At the beginning, in the middle and at the end of every shift, the labor hours add up. The time totals can be startling to even the most seasoned business owner. It’s a huge waste of resources and an opportunity thief.
Whatever your business is, it’s highly likely that you’re spending way too much time and money on cash-related tasks. Fortunately, we know a great way to ease the pain.

Human beings are great at a lot of things. But let’s face it, sometimes machines outperform us. This is one of those cases. We don’t take it personally because they allow us to do other fun and more profitable things.

Key benefits of automation
Less time, money, and labor is spent on counting cash. Repetitive tasks such as till preparation, end-of-shift reconciliation and bank drops are greatly reduced. Team members can be re-purposed toward more customer-centric actions.
Cash is more visible and secure. Each transaction generates a complete audit trail and an added layer of accountability. Remote monitoring gives an instant analysis of cash amounts. Human contact with cash is reduced which lowers the opportunities for internal and external theft. Safes are rated for overnight storage so money can be stored on-site.
Idle cash is reduced. Daily cash float amounts in drawers are lower. Provisional credit for deposited money can lead to additional working capital for the entire organization. Cash-in-transit trips and costs are lowered.
The best retail solution.
ARCA technology automates repetitive labor, potentially halving the time staff need to spend on starting floats, note sweeps and swaps, coin and note counting, and end-of-day reconciliation. It saves time and money, eliminates shrinkage, improves productivity and cash visibility. It can also allow you to receive provisional credit, enabling instant access to you money.
Eliminating manual cash-counting at the beginning, during and at the end of the day cans save as much as 90 minutes per employee.
Cash automation can reduce labor and cash-in-transit costs by eliminating the need to clear cash out of a drawer for overnight storage.
Cash automation allows you to set-up provisional bank credit. Money is immediately credited, enabling instant access to that cash.
The speed and accuracy of cash automation means staff can focus on better service--a better return on their time and skills (and your wage budget) than counting cash.
