Cash Handling System
It Pays to Keep Cash Out of Sight, Out of Reach
There's no question that retailers are a high-risk group when it
comes to hold-ups and petty theft by employees. Every time the cash register is
opened, it is an invitation to the criminally inclined.
Front-end cash exposure poses an even greater risk in 24-hour stores and
large operations with a number of check-out lanes. Employee turnover adds to
One way to guard against the danger is to make frequent collections from all
the cash registers in your store, keeping cash accumulations as small as
possible. But it is neither practical, nor profitable, for store managers to
constantly walk away from other responsibilities to make those collections.
Such a system can actually create an added risk-by making your managerial staff
vulnerable every time they carry loose cash off of the floor.
The Counter Cache Method is a Better Method
A far more efficient system is Counter Cache (pronounced cash). Available in
two models. Counter Cache I and II.
It allows for continuous collection from all of the cash registers by
providing a depository at each station for large denomination bills and all
excess cash that is not needed to make change.
Once bills are placed in the "Cache" box, they remain under lock
and key, hidden from view, until it is convenient for the manager to take
charge of the contents. Even the cashier who puts the bills there, no longer
has access to them. The money can only be retrieved by the one who holds the
key - the person you designate.
By keeping money out of temptation's way, Counter Cache not only reduces the
risk of outside theft, it discourages petty theft by employees.
How Counter Cache helps you keep the profits you make.
The Counter Cache box is designed to lock into a mounting channel which can
be bolted to any secure fixture near the cash register. Once the unit is locked
in place, bracket screws are securely hidden away to protect against tampering.
In most cases, the under side of the counter is selected as the most suitable
location - one that is both convenient for the cashiers who use it, yet
Based on the individual needs of your store, cashiers should be instructed
as to the approximate amount of cash to be kept in the register - so that
excess amounts can be routinely deposited in the Counter Cache.
The cashier simply drops each bill into the slot, and pushes it towards the
back of the box with a quick flip of the handle. At the end of the business
day, or at convenient times throughout the day, the Counter Cache is unlocked
from the mounting channel to be transported to a more secure place where it can
be opened. This can only be done by using another key. When the contentsare
removed, the bills are neatly stacked and ready to be counted.
Counter Cache II: a cassette system that takes multiple cash registers into
For increased efficiency in large operations such as department stores,
supermarkets, discount stores, etc., Counter Cache II offers the added feature
of removable cassettes. This time-saving system provides an immediate
productivity saving. It facilitates collection from multiple cash registers
throughout the store, by enabling the person in charge to remove only the
cassette - leaving the "Cache" box in place. As each cassette is
removed, it is immediately replaced with an empty cassette - allowing for
continuous, uninterrupted use of the "Cache" box by the cashiers.
How the cassette system works.
The cassette is a strong plastic case with the capacity to hold up to 500
bills or checks, yet it weighs only 1 lb. Before each use, it is sealed with a
numbered security seal that remains intact until the cassette is opened by the
person in charge of collecting cash. The sealed cassette is simply dropped into
the Counter Cache box.
When cash is collected, it takes two keys to remove the cassette. One metal
key opens the box itself, exposing the cassette inside. But the cassette can
only be removed by inserting a separate plastic key plate - which both closes
the cassette (making it into a separate container), and releases it from the
"Cache" box. After it is removed to a secure place to be emptied of
its contents, the cassette is opened by breaking the security seal.
Added features for added effieciency.
Optional accessories are available for both Counter Cache I and II.
Specially designed envelopes hold cash, checks, coupons, bottle redemption
slips, as well as a transaction tape for easy close-out. To mark the point at
which a new clerk begins working the same register, there's a special plastic
marker to insert at the end of each shift. Custom mounting brackets are also
available to modify Counter Cache to meet specific needs.
