Inventor of Counting Cash by Weight

Founded in 1979 Tellermate developed count-by-weight technology. Initially created for use in major financial institutions and banks, it came to be adopted across the wider commercial world. Today Tellermate solutions process over £2 billion daily across 30 countries.

What is count-by-weight technology?

The concept is simple. It works by weighing each denomination of money and measuring the weight against the stored weight for the denomination.  

So as an example, if you are weighing a batch of £5 notes, and the stored weight per note for this denomination is 1 gram. The Tellermate device then records a total weight of 10 grams, and it will calculate and display the result as £50.  

Counts are instantaneous and you can count coin and note denominations one after another, on the same cash counter, or all denominations in real-time in our intelligent cash drawer. 

How can count-by-weight technology be accurate?

The first thing to understand is that currencies in developed economies, are produced under strict parameters to make it more difficult for counterfeiters to create fraudulent notes. Due to these parameters and quality controls, there is little variation between all coins or notes of a given denomination. 

The stored weights are based on our extensive and ongoing analysis of circulating notes and coins and our close working relationships with national banks around the globe. 

The real key to our accuracy though is our algorithms. Tellermate uses artificial intelligence built into the software on each device, to allow it to account for the minor variations one could expect – for example, moisture levels, dirt, and tears.
