Volumatic to Exhibit at Retail Fraud 2011

Volumatic will be exhibiting at the Retail Fraud conference 2011 in London. Volumatic will showcase its headline product, the CounterCache intelligent machine (CCi) that streamlines front-end processes at POS and cuts cash handling up to 75%; once a banknote is handed over at the till, it need not be touched again until it reaches the bank or cash centre.

In addition to exhibiting at Retail Fraud, Volumatic has sponsored the Retail Fraud Survey 2011 set to launch at the conference. Published by Retail Knowledge and conducted by Martec International, the Retail Fraud Survey 2011 is the first-ever comprehensive retailer report detailing adopted in-store and online fraud prevention strategies by each of the UK’s 100 leading retailers.

James Harris, Commercial Director from sponsor Volumatic, said: “As a leading manufacturer of intelligent cash handling equipment, we are pleased to be participating in this comprehensive survey. The report will help our industry to understand what retailers are really doing to combat fraud and we are confident that the findings will help us to help retailers improve their current practices with products and services tailored to their specific needs.”

MultiCount™ enables accurate and fast counting of loose and packed coins, notes, coupons, and tokens. Automation increases efficiency and reduces the risk of inaccuracy due to human error, saving both time and money. Specifically designed to cater for multiple till drawer reconciliation of all payment media, the MultiCount™ can be used as a stand-alone or linked product. It can be fully integrated into an existing count and reconciliation system meaning that processes can be streamlined and ultimately improved.

At John Lewis it has allowed employees to count cash in all registers in a store, perform spot checks and reconcile floats and values efficiently. In addition, the MultiCount™ saves all the data entered and enables staff to stream the collected data directly into Volumatic designed spreadsheets used for accounting purposes.

A spokesperson for John Lewis commented:
“The support from Volumatic has been outstanding. They have trained our staff on the use of the MultiCount™ and created and modified the accounting spreadsheets as and when required. John Lewis would have no hesitation in recommending the MultiCount™, and Volumatic, to other organisations.”

Volumatic’s TruSort Coin Sorting Machine Increases Efficiency at Port of Dover

Volumatic has supplied G4S Maritime, world leader in the provision of international ship and port facility security services, with its TruSort coin sorting machine at Port of Dover. Port of Dover has 15 car parking ticket machines that accept assorted coins and must be emptied and counted at least once a week.

Recently G4S decided to sort the coins in-house and they contacted Volumatic for a low cost, simple to operate and reliable machine that did not occupy a large amount of space when not in use.

“Each week’s collection was being counted by hand and it soon became clear that we needed to obtain a suitable machine to assist with the process. It took 2 people around 3-4 hours over 2 days to count a single collection by hand, which in terms of productivity was unacceptable,” Steven Taylor MD – G4S Maritime commented.

Volumatic offered a 2 week trial with coin sorting machine TruSort to see if it would be suitable. TruSort is fully automated and able to count and sort 216 coins per minute. It sorts coins into individual hoppers and also into the correct denomination that the bank requires for each bag.

Mich and Tracy use Volumatic’s TruSort coin sorting machine to count and sort money collected from the car parking machines at Port of Dover.

“This saved us a lot of time. From the assorted coin stage to paying in at the Bank can now be accomplished in less than a day.” Steven said, “I have to say that our experience with Volumatic and its products has been superb. The machine provided meets all of our requirements at around a tenth of the cost of any of the other equipment we considered. It is refreshing to find a company that listens to what the customer needs, rather than try to push products from their warehouse and the level of attention and service at every stage has been nothing short of exemplary.”

Volumatic appoints Moneytronic as new distributor for CounterCache products in Benelux

Volumatic Ltd is pleased to announce that Moneytronic Nederland BV is now the sole distributor of all Volumatic products in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. Until now Moneytronic have concentrated on distributing Volumatic’s CountEasy and MultiCount note and coin counters. Moneytronic has now also taken on the distribution of Volumatic’s successful CounterCache range of products including the new CounterCache intelligent (CCi) validation and storage machine.

 The CounterCache range of products comprises four models. The CounterCache Basic is a basic cash deposit box that can hold up to 600 banknotes securely at the point of sale. The CounterCache Classic is very similar to the Basic but includes an internal cassette that can be used with plain or numbered seals to provide a tamper-evident lightweight carrier, while the Compact CounterCache provides a more secure anti-fishing design. The new CounterCache intelligent (CCi) validates all banknotes as they are inserted providing forgery detection at the point of sale. The notes are then stacked in a patented tamper-evident plastic pouch (TruPouch) that is light and easy for cash-in-transit companies to collect and transport.

Counter_Cache_blog

 “The CounterCache range of products is very popular throughout Europe and the US with more than 500,000 Basic, Classic and Compact units currently installed at supermarkets, retailers and amusement parks. These high quality units, made from 1.2mm steel, provide a secure, low cost and very reliable solution for storing banknotes safely at the point of sale,” said Graham Jackson, European Sales Manager at Volumatic.

 “We are very pleased to add the Volumatic range CounterCache units to our product portfolio. The new CounterCache intelligent unit provides a new compelling end-to-end solution for the retail market, validating and storing banknotes at the point of sale and communicating all transactions and a complete audit trail to the cash office wirelessly or by Ethernet,” said Jordi de Weerd, Managing Director of Moneytronic Nederland BV.

 The CounterCache intelligent is ideal for a wide range of applications including forecourts, convenience stores, theme parks, stadiums, fast food outlets, retail outlets, bars and restaurants. It increases efficiency by reducing down-time, and reduces shrinkage by cutting down the number of people handling cash.

 Moneytronic has been selling a wide range of cash management products in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg since 1990. The company is experienced in providing and restructuring complete cash management solutions, improving safety and efficiency for the retail environment, from the point-of-sale to the bank.
