Retail Shopping Group reduces shrinkage

alpha1.jpgAlpha Retail’s shopping outlets at Birmingham International Airport recently installed new CounterCache™ intelligent (CCi) systems from Volumatic Limited to eliminate losses at the point of sale. Volumatic is the leading UK manufacturer of cash counting and cash handling systems for the retail, leisure and banking industries. The CCi’s have been installed at the cash registers and provide validation of bank notes, note counting and secure storage. All transaction information is transferred via a wireless link to the cash office and can be monitored on a hand held PDA.

Instead of notes being stored in till drawers they are deposited inside the CCi and secured in a tamper-evident pouch called TruPouch™ which can be compressed and saves space during transport. The CCi is easy to install and operate and can cut till check and cashing up times by half, increasing productivity and reducing losses.
Phillip Logan at Alpha Retail commented: “The Volumatic CCi unit is a clear winner just on time savings alone and represents an excellent addition to our point of sale systems installed in our outlets. They provide security along with instant updates of cash changes within the unit. Fewer people handle the cash and this will reduce shrinkage and contribute significantly to our overall loss prevention strategy.”
