TCRs & Cash Management

A Teller Cash Recycler (TCR) is a machine that verifies incoming banknotes and securely stores the cash in an internal vault. TCRs provide the ability to process automated cash transactions for the tellers from the cash inventory, including deposits and withdrawals.

Learn why TCR's are 50% less cost, more secure with managed services, and 40% more efficient.
Cash Management
Teller Cash Recycling, Cash Automaton

TCR technology has come further than you think, 7 avoidable pain points:

  1. Wasting hours manually auditing cash: Many financial institutions still waste countless hours weekly and monthly auditing their cash when they can automate it.
  2. A hidden cyberattack risk: Who is servicing your TCR behind the counter? Many services are not Type 2 Soc 2 nor do they have the capability to remotely push security patches. The IT dept often overlooks TCRs, which typically connect to your network. Have you performed vendor due diligence and a security audit?
  3. Overpaying for old technology: TCRs have dramatically come down in price. Certain brands are overpriced, lack automation & the ability to secure remote patching.
  4. Open platforms for integration: Do your recyclers run closed proprietary software that inhibits software collaboration with older branch technology? If so ask yourself why? Integrating your recyclers to AI platforms, branch surveillance systems for dispute tracking, remote resolution software that the servicer of your choice can use, the list goes on. Don’t give up your freedom by deploying a recycler that doesn’t offer an open platform to collaborate with your other technology partners.
  5. Cash Handling ecosystem: This is not just a teller cash recycling conversation. This should be part of a greater conversation around how you need to handle your cash distribution channels available to you. There are several pieces to this puzzle, making sure they fit is important. Do not make a siloed decision solely around the safe behind teller row.
  6. Price has come down: Let us be real, recyclers should not be the same price as an ATM. If you haven’t shopped for upgraded technology lately you will be surprised that you were likely overpaying for subpar technology.
  7. Capacity has increased: Cassette-based recyclers provide close to double the capacity compared to an RSM recycler. Odds are with a cassette-based recycler you can reduce the number of machines you need to buy and maintain to stay profitable. No one wants to run out of cash or a denomination, doubling up your available currency levels brings that peace of mind and exceptional consumer experience.
