Smart Safes

The advent of cash-aware
"Smart-safes" in retailers

Market analysts estimate that by the beginning of 2012 the "smart safes" only in US are reaching 50,000 units. Almost half of this population is connected in cash management digital networks supervised by cash handlers or specialized "RCM" companies, enabling acknowledgment of provisional credit by the associated banks.

The adoption of enabling technology by more "smart safe" manufacturers, new advanced models right-sized for every application and growing banks interest to join the RCC ecosystem, this growth is expected to continue the years to come.

However we have to admit that beyond the side benefits of cash handling processes simplification and the increased security, it is one primary benefit that attracts the retailer business decision makers to join this trend, acquiring "smart safe" devices. This is the provisional credit awarded by the bank in return to a "smart safe" connected in their IT systems. This is changing the paradigm of remote deposits capture and management, by challenging the re-engineering of the overall cash cycle within merchants and between merchants, armored couriers and banks cash vault networks. Apparently RCC introduction is a decisive step towards reducing the cash acceptance and processing cost for all stakeholders of the cash flow ecosystem.

How the user interrogates
the Smart Safe device

A smart safe is capable of interrogating with the user, offering a multitude of services. Typically it is about deposit and banknotes counting; on certain devices it also handling withdrawal and exchange with different denominations. The system is capable to provide certain information in form of on–screen reports, such as financial transaction history of a user or a supervisor, as well as cash inventory report with banknote denominations breakdown. The user interface supports the concept of "shifts", where the deposits are under the custody of a shift–supervisor. Last but not least, the user interface is responsible to manage the CIT cash offload and bag or cartridge replacement process.


On the User Interface backend co–resides a communications agent responsible to synchronize in real time the smart safe data with the central Cash Management Network supervisor control and monitoring system.

Right-sized technology for every retailer

Cash deposit, recycling and armored courier bag preparation devices

Remote Cash Control (RCC), the deployment of secure smart safes at merchant locations coupled with information reporting and provisional credit mechanisms, has been utilized for nearly 15 years as a means of improving merchant cash cycle control. Since 2004, when banks gradually began offering provisional credit based on validated currency residing at the merchant location, the industry has witnessed a surge in interest and adoption of these devices.

For most merchants, couriers and banks, cash handling is still predominantly manual, but a growing number of institutions are starting offering Remote Cash Control products that sweeten the deal by offering provisional credit for deposits that are counted and validated by a "smart safe" that also provides audit trails for cash.

The primary benefit of RCC provisional credit is that it facilitates wholesale reengineering of the cash cycle within merchants and between merchants, armored couriers and bank cash vault networks. RCC removes the substantial burden of cash handling typically carried by bank branch personnel historically, largely with the introduction of meaningful automation.
