The Importance of Cash Payments for Small Businesses

Being a Shop Owner you may have already come to the conclusion that taking cash is how you get the most money out of your transactions. Taking cash has the advantage that you can avoid cashless & card transaction fees, so the £20 you take in is still worth £20. But all cash needs counting at the end of a shift or day and with Tellermate you can achieve this simply quite fast.

How much time does your business waste counting cash by hand? 

Let’s start with how long it takes you or your employees to cash-up tills. It could be 10 minutes per till – it could be more. Sure, it doesn’t seem like a lot. But what about how long it takes to verify change deliveries, set floats, count bank deposits and perform other general cash handling tasks? It all adds up…

Before you know it, your staff are spending a big part of their day on these time-consuming, manual tasks. Morale can decrease, error rates can increase, labour costs can rise and sales can suffer. Not great for your employees and not great for your business.

But what if you could automate unnecessary cash handling tasks in your stores?    What if tills could be reconciled in less than 60 seconds?    What if banking deposits could be prepared in minutes?

Why Tellermate is a great choice for your business

Tellermate’s innovative count-by-weight cash counters give your business an effective and highly accurate way to count your tills in under a minute – reducing cash handling errors and saving both valuable time and money.

All this means that you get a more accurate overview of the cash across your stores. It means that time-consuming manual cash handling tasks are automated, cash handling mistakes are reduced, and that your employees will be free to spend time where it really matters – with your customers.
