SMARTtill™ Technology Delivers Operational Efficiency at Costcutter

Costcutter Supermarkets Group is helping its retailers save time and money by introducing the next generation in cash management technology, the SMARTtill™ Intelligent Cash Drawer.

SMARTtill™ Solution, the first intelligent cash drawer on the market, is currently being trialled within a number of stores and the technology will soon be available to the Group’s 2,600 stores across the UK.

Using the latest weighing technology, the tills count all notes and coins automatically within seconds of the cash drawer being closed. Daily cashing up becomes a thing of the past as the tills automatically reconcile every cash transaction and provide full reports for retailers on vital figures including rolling floats values, change needed, top-up values, pick-up values and sales values. In some cases, retailers can realise labour savings as much as 30 minutes per day, per POS terminal.

Dave Morris, Director of IT, Costcutter Supermarkets Group, said: “Retailers are looking for straight forward technologies that can be implemented quickly and easily whilst bringing real benefits to them and their store. We demonstrated the SMARTtill™ Cash Management Solution at our conference last year and there was a real appetite for it from our retailers. The intelligent cash drawers give retailers another way to create efficiencies within their stores and the results from the trials have been very positive.”

“Constantly delivering improved technology to our retailers is a key focus for us throughout 2016 and this new technology follows our wider technology and digital investment which includes our ActivHUB portal, ActivMOBILE app and social media training for store owners,” continued Morris.

Andy Pengelly, owner of Costcutter store in Porthleven, commented: “We’ve just completed an initial trial of the SMARTtill™ Solution, and are really impressed. Not only has it saved time but it gives me an audit trail of cash handling activities in-store, which is invaluable for day to day store management.”

Stephen Bergeron, VP of Global Marketing at APG/Cash Bases, the makers of the SMARTtill™ Intelligent Cash Drawer, comments: “We are seeing businesses achieve a reduction in cash loss of up to 90% and a labour savings of some 30 minutes daily for every point of sale. It is through these operational improvements that businesses are attaining a ROI of 11-14 months utilising the SMARTtill™ Solution.”

Stephen Bergeron added: “the SMARTtill™ Solution proves to transcend among different types of sectors and store formats, a pioneering cash management solution in the market that continues to maintain interest amongst leading retailers both within and outside of Europe.”

The SMARTtill™ Solution is a British Innovation developed and manufactured in the UK by Cash Bases Limited.

Boosting Cashier Etiquette with Cash Management Technology

Technology gets a bad rap for changing human interaction in unwelcome ways – teenagers using their cellphones at dinner, lack of decorum in social media, and dangerous use of texting while driving, to name a few. So it’s nice when you can point to an example of technology improving human contact.

We’re talking about the POS station at your favorite supermarket, convenience store or local corner shop. Deployment of cash management and intelligent cash drawer solutions can improve the shopping experience, allowing cashiers to focus more on the customer.

Traditionally, a cashier takes your money, counts it, places it in the till, looks at the POS screen to calculate the change, and then pulls out bills and coins to make change. This takes up to two minutes of barely looking at the customer, something retailers want to change to create a better customer experience at checkout.

Focus on the Customer
Cash, of course, remains the most common form of payment in retail settings, so the answer isn’t to get rid of if but to improve the transaction through better cash management. For instance, automated cash recyclers allow cashiers to focus more on the customer because, depending on the setup:

 - The employee never touches the money; customers insert it into a slot and the machine makes change
 - The cashier receives the money and the machine does the rest
 - Customers insert money and the cashier hands out the change

In any of these settings, the cashier has more time to make eye contact with customers, greeting them at arrival, asking if they found everything they needed and wishing them a nice day. Automated cash recyclers save shoppers up to two minutes at the POS station, and anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes per checkout lane each day. In smaller stores where cashiers double as sales associates, they can spend time on the sales floor upselling, cross-selling products and suggesting value-added services such as extended warranties.

Another approach involves intelligent cash drawers with weighing technology. These drawers calculate the amount of cash in the till at all times, telling cashiers and managers exactly how many bills and coins of each denomination are in the drawer, as well as the total. When a transaction is completed, all changes are recorded with a transaction number, cashier, date and time.

This allows for operating the drawers with optimum float and less interruption at the tills due to cash handling. Customers don’t have to wait while the drawer is topped off. Also, if the cashier gives a patron the wrong change by accident, the mistake can be fixed immediately. As soon as a customer notices she was short-changed, she can tell the cashier and, with the push of a button, the cashier can check if the customer is right. The result is a better overall checkout experience.

Benefits Aplenty
Cash management solutions allow POS dealers to add value for customers. Cash management offers plenty of benefits, including shorter checkout times, fewer and more accurate cash counts and of course improved interaction with shoppers. The more pleasant the interaction with customers, the more brand loyalty you build.
