Cash Is Inserted


When a customer wants to deposit cash, you simply place the stack of bills in the bill tray and use the touch screen to begin counting. Small wheels whisk bills through a narrow slot where they move on to the next stage of the process. Some recyclers intake bills more rapidly than others, but even the slowest machine is much faster than a person.

Cash Is Counted


As bills enter the machine, they pass over a scanner that can accurately read their denomination. This scanner can also identify bills as being either counterfeit or foreign and route them towards a non-acceptable currency holding area. As bills are being scanned, the machine calculates the deposit total, including a breakdown by denomination. With the latest software integration, your customer’s account can be updated in real-time.

Bills Are Stored in Cassettes


Bank cash recyclers store cash cassettes inside a built-in safe. When the teller needs more cash for their drawer, they can simply remove a cassette from the machine. This can dramatically cut down on trips to the vault, which is relatively labor- and time-intensive. By recycling bills from the sorting machine, you can improve employee efficiency and reduce wait times for your customers.

Cash Recycling ATMs


Cash recycling ATMs are designed to both accept and distribute bills and have been estimated to lower cash handling expenses by nearly half. Recycling ATMs also cut down significantly on the time and expense of cash transportation, ATM downtime, and idle cash sitting in the machine. They require less refilling since they reuse bills that have been deposited by customers. Reduce labor and cost, and increase efficiency and accuracy with immediate results.

Transform Your Branch


Though more and more banking transactions can be done online and at remote ATMs, branch locations are essential locations where customers and businesses can deposit or withdraw large amounts of cash, or discuss loans, mortgages, and other transactions that often require a personal touch.
