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.  

Greater efficiency through automation

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.

Automation technology handles money more quickly, accurately, safely and well, better than humans. That’s where waste is cut and efficiency is gained. Spend less. Save more.

We work hard to make it easy for you. We want you to reap the benefits of cash automation right now. And be on your way to a quick and profitable ROI.

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.
