A Cash Handling Solution Buyer's Guide: What Are The Top Features To Look For?

At Volumatic, we are the experts in cash handling solutions. We aim to make cash as efficient, profitable and effective as possible for all businesses and retailers across a range of industries. However, we know that no two businesses are the same and have very different requirements when it comes to selecting the most useful business tools, such as cash handling solutions. As a result, we provide a wide range of cash handling solutions, designed to suit a variety of needs.

To help you find the right one for your need, read on for our buyer's guide.

Preventing Forgeries

If forgeries are a major concern for your business, then we offer a range of forgery detectors that can help to eliminate the chance of fake notes entering your business circulation. For retailers who have suffered from shrinkage due to accepting fake notes, a counterfeit detector is essential.

At Volumatic, we have a variety of forgery detectors that pass the Bank of England's Framework test to reject all known forgeries in circulation. These are ideal for supporting the Local Recycling Code of Conduct, which means these solutions are perfect for retailers with self-checkouts and self-fill ATMs as well as retailers who want to clamp down on fraudulent notes.

Best Solutions For Preventing Forgeries


This future-proof forgery detection device offers innovative software that can be easily updated via a USB cable to ensure it is always up to date and ready to detect the latest in forgery advancements. What's more, the BV30 can verify up to six different currencies at one time and features five different advanced counterfeit detection technologies.

This two-pocket friction note counter is ideal for a range of cash handling activities such as preventing acceptance of forged notes. What's more, this advanced solution can value count and sort up to 1500 notes per minute which makes it ideal for processing large amounts of cash. The FC200 is also a perfect option for those who operate self-fill ATM. This is due to the speed and volume of notes that the machine can process.

While the FC200 is often used in organisations such as banks and building societies, casinos and post offices, the solution is ideal for any business that handles a large volume of cash that needs to be quickly and accurately counted.

Storing Cash

Keeping your employees and customers safe is at the utmost importance for businesses. As a result, keeping tills safe and reducing the risk of till snatches are essential for employee peace of mind. Furthermore, for companies that have seasonal or high staff turnover, it is vital to reduce the risk of internal shrink and eliminate any chance of opportunistic theft.

One way to help protect cash is through a cash storage solution. We have devices that help to store cash safely at the till point, meaning that cash handlers only have to touch notes once. This not only helps to ensure security at the till point but can also minimise contact with cash for safety and hygiene reasons too.

These devices help to reduce the visibility of cash to minimise the risk of till snatches. The units not only help staff to feel safe, but it also helps to streamline the cash process too.

Furthermore, the CounterCache Classic stores the notes in pristine condition, which is ideal for note recycling, especially if needed in ATMs.

The CounterCache Classic is incredibly popular among high street retailers but will suit all businesses that fill their tills on a daily basis.

CounterCache intelligent

This award-winning device offers a one-touch cash handling solution that means that employees only have to touch notes once, and these notes are not touched again until they arrive at the bank or cash centre. Cash processing is exceptionally streamlined, allowing employees to focus on customer service. At the same time, the CounterCache intelligent will validate, count, stack and secure the notes making cash reconciliation incredibly easy.

Furthermore, the CounterCache intelligent can check for note forgeries, integrate with your EPOS system, so every transaction is logged and maintain quality note presentation, ideal for ATMs.

The CounterCache intelligent is a popular cash handling solution for its all-round capabilities and is perfect for any organisation that is looking for an end-to-end cash handling solution.

Counting Cash

For retailers that have to process notes and coins in their daily activities, cash counters are vital and can help to eliminate the physical cash handling and counting process completely. This can help to reduce the risk of error while also speeding up the process. From helping with the auditing system to improving accuracy and speeding up the activity to improve customer service, cash counting solutions can be game-changing.

At Volumatic, we offer a vast range of cash counters to suit a whole host of industries, retailers and businesses.
