Real is a European hypermarket and a member of the German trade and retail giant Metro AG. It was formed in 1992, from the merger of chains divi, Basar, Continent, Esbella and real-kauf.
They were looking into investing in a till reconciliation solution that made their daily workload quicker and more cost effective for their cash handling.
Currency scales from four different manufacturers were tested over an extended period of time and the CountEasy was chosen as the winner. The reasons for the CountEasy being selected were its sturdiness, it's extreme ease of use and 5 year warranty. Furthermore, the configuration of the scale was adjusted to meet the specific requirements of the supermarket. The scales were complemented by till cups to further accelerate the counting process.
Real have since gone on to purchase over 700 CountEasys and they are looking to maximise their investment further by adopting integration solutions from Volumatic that can enhance their current cash handling processes.
