06/15/2018  How to choose the best Automated Teller Safe? Top-5 Teller Cash Recyclers

Teller automatic safes (TAU) are very specific type of banking equipment - have been undeservedly overlooked, but recently their sales have been steadily growing. It took more than 15 years, several world crises and rapid development of internet technologies, to make the functionality of these self-service devices appreciated. TAU help saving human resources while performing routine cash operations, closing cashier’s working day, calculating, validating and preparing cash for cash collection by CIT service team. The devices allow accelerating the work of cashiers in banks and stores, minimizing the risk of making operational errors and completely replace such traditional equipment as validators, counting machines and banknote wrappers. Additionally, TAU provide possibility for branch transformation into self-service mode: banks and other organizations can organize the process of issuing loans and depositing funds without direct involvement of their own employees.

The company BS/2 has conducted a small study and compared different models of electronic cashiers, highlighting five the most functional and reliable devices from the world's largest manufacturers.
