Founded in 1993, Rightway Wholesale is a second-generation family-run business in the south of Glasgow. Operating as a cash and carry that specialises in Asian cuisine, Rightway Wholesale is a bustling and popular business that serves local food industry. In its prime location, close to the M74, and the growing footfall to the store, Rightway Wholesale plans to expand with a café, restaurant and meeting rooms.
As the business expands, cash remains a serious concern and an integral part of the supply chain for Rightway Wholesale, its suppliers and customers. Sadly, counterfeit notes are always a concern for a business such as this. Consequently, with the expansion going ahead, business partners Affy Ahmad and Javid Ashraf were looking for a way to combat fake notes while improving customer service through faster, more efficient interactions.
With three tills in operation across the store and more planned, it was time to find a cash handling solution that could improve customer throughput and combat counterfeit notes. Let down by unreliable cash counters in the past, Affy and Javid were introduced to Volumatic by Unitas. Volumatic then completed a survey of requirements and recommended the FC200 device.
The FC200 device is ideal thanks to its high-performance counterfeit detection and the fact it can count up to 1,500 note per minute. As well as the FC200, a CountEasy currency scale was also recommended which can accurately count the entire contents of a till in less than one minute, for quick, accurate end-of-day reconciliation.
Affy and Javid soon realised the enormous benefits of the FC200 and CountEasy, both of which required minimal training and just a short set up. As well as helping to reduce counterfeits, Rightway Wholesale is benefiting from ‘mind-blowing’ cash counting results. The team are amazed at the ease, speed and accuracy of the machines while Affy claims that it now takes just 10% of the time that was usually dedicated to cash handling. Banking errors have also reduced too.
Furthermore, the team were surprised at how quickly and easily the £20 polymer upgrade was to complete for the machines – helping to minimise downtime and ensure minimal disruption to the business.
