Cummins Allison and Morrisons Add Self-Service Coin Counting Machines to Stores Across UK

September 10, 2014, Coventry, England—Cummins Allison, the leading innovator and provider of coin and currency handling solutions, today announced that Morrisons has contracted to install Money Machine® self-service coin counters in its UK stores, delivering accurate and user-friendly self-service coin counting to its customers.

The Money Machine coin counter provides Morrisons customers with the industry's fastest and most reliable self-service coin processor, counting 4,100 mixed coins per minute at 99.995% accuracy. With a total footprint of less than 1.22 square meters, the Money Machine coin counter requires very little space and is especially appropriate for locations where available space is at a premium. The Money Machine coin counters are easy to use and make coin handling fast and efficient. Customers simply drop coins into the machine and quickly receive their receipt which is redeemed for cash at the tills to apply against their shopping bill.

"The coin counters are a great way for our customers to exchange loose change for cash, for spending in the store," says David Morriss, Head of Estates at Morrisons. "The Money Machine coin counter is easy to use, accurate, and is very convenient for our customers."

"Retail organisations are seeking partners who can match their ability to provide superior service to their customers," comments Jim Stearns, executive vice president international operations, Cummins Allison. "As the industry leader in accurate and reliable currency and coin handling, Cummins Allison has worked with Morrisons to provide a best-in-class service. Our success for more than 125 years is founded on the success of our customers who, like Morrisons, significantly improve their business through the use of our technology."
