Dual-purpose cash and check scanners streamline credit union vaults

Dual-purpose cash and check scanners streamline credit union vaults

Dual-purpose cash and check scanners can reduce error and streamline operations in your credit union's vault. Their unique and reliable format reduces room for error and steps usually involved in a deposit. 

Dual-purpose cash and check scanners

Many credit union vault systems rely on the guidance of two or more tellers. One person may count cash while the other uses a separate machine to scan checks. With multiple people working on tasks and inputting data, these setups leave room for mistakes. However, you want your operations to be seamless and accurate. Seeking these features can help:

Double processing
Dual-purpose cash and check scanners combine check and bill processing to reduce the steps it takes to complete a deposit. For instance, the JetScan iFX i100 from Cummins Allison allows users to run both types of currency in one machine, making processing up to 33 percent faster than comparable models. Instead of splitting deposit duties among multiple tellers, let one person handle all of the counting with the help of a scanner.

Data exporting
Entering deposit information into a computer program by hand allows for human error. Fixing any issues that do arise can take time, costing your business money. Remove the opportunity for mistakes by using dual-purpose cash and check scanners that export data right into your management and deposit systems. After a teller uses the scanner to count checks and bills, the system creates a digital cash-in ticket, which has the deposit amount encoded.

Between combing cash and check deposits and a digital ticket, dual-purpose scanners streamline vault operations. In fact, one deposit requires only three steps: scan checks, scan cash and approve the encoded ticket. After that, the teller can move on to the next deposit. What's more, the JetScan iFX i100 can read up to 400 items a minute, further reducing the time it takes to complete each transaction.
