Dual-purpose cash and check scanners help retailers maximize employee productivity during the summer

Dual-purpose cash and check scanners allow retailer managers to make the most of the busy summer season. The warm weather and occasional holidays between May and September combine to create a popular time for employees to take vacations with friends and family.

These practices don't have to take a toll on business productivity. And no manager wants to be the person who cuts back on those summertime benefits to keep people indoors performing back-office tasks.

That's where equipping a team with automated technology works wonders in helping businesses allow the kind of flexibility their employees need. For example, counting cash and scanning checks at the end of the day is a notoriously time-consuming manual process. Not only is it tedious, but it also creates room for errors that can affect bottom lines. Giving team members the option to use a dual-purpose cash and check scanner cuts significant time out of the process, essentially eliminating the task altogether.

With machines that count up to 1,600 mixed bills per minute, managers can even create a more engaging framework to keep employees motivated during the summer months. Business Insider recommended working with team members to establish goals to track throughout the season. Setting an ideal limit on the amount of time employees spend counting out the cash box at the end of each day could be an effective way to both increase motivation and give people ownership of their efforts to plan ahead for their time off. With a more efficient way of doing business overall, employees can enjoy their vacation to the fullest without worrying about leaving any work unfinished for others.
