See Smart-Safes in action!

Click on one of the above businesses to see how Smart-Safes can be deployed to help your bottom line.

Convenience Store

Customers in a rush to buy a bag of chips, a cup of coffee, or a pack of gum love the convenience of using cash. The sheer volume of cash transactions in this type of environment lends itself to a distributed Smart-Safe approach or a safe with deposit and change dispensing capabilities.

Quick Service Restaurant

Even after fast food restaurants began accepting major credit cards, cash still is a dominant payment choice. These cash-heavy establishments typically do best with a Smart-Safes located as close to the register as possible. In larger stores, rolled coin and small bills are in high demand.

Grocery

Grocery checkout lines see a lot of large denomination bills. Having the ability to run a thorough counterfeit check at the time the bill is presented is necessary to protect the store. Compact or distributed Smart-Safes located in each checkout line serve as effective ways to validate and protect the cash until end of day or shift consolidation.

Wholesale Club / Distributor

Wholesale clubs accept fewer credit cards than other types of retailers and consequently see a fair amount of cash paying customers. Large denomination bills are common and so the need for counterfeit detection is imperative near the point of sale.

Theme Park

Cash is used throughout theme parks for ticket sales, individual ride sales, midway games, dining, and merchandise. Having networked Smart-Safes distributed throughout the park will keep you aware of your cash position at all times. Also consider using a rolled coin dispensing safe to vend change or in-park tokens.

Casual Dining

Cash is handled broadly throughout a restaurant across many servers. Having a Smart-Safe located in the back room where servers consolidate their customer bill payments and tips limit your exposure to theft and shrinkage.

Club

Clubs have several locations that handle cash from servers, to bars, to fees paid at the entrance. A back-room Smart-Safe is the best way to track and safeguard your revenues.

Independent Retailer

Main street businesses and specialty retail shops, strip malls, or shopping malls, can protect themselves and employees with DIY cash management solutions for small cash volume. A single back- room armor car friendly Smart-Safe can be used for larger cash volume and additional security.

Doctor's Office

Settling copays and other visit related fees with cash often results in cash stored in a relatively unprotected office environment. A compact or small Smart-Safe located in the office helps ensure cash safekeeping.

Bar

Keep your bar tenders honest and safe by removing the large amounts of cash from a register with limited protection. Placing a single Smart-Safe behind the bar will ensure your cash is protected from both internal and external theft.

Liquor Store

Some liquor stores rival the size of grocery supermarkets, and cash is a particularly popular payment option. Having Smart-Safes at each checkout station is a best practice to ensure notes are valid and secure the moment they are received.

Chain Retailer

Get instant visibility into the cash operations of your retail chain with a web portal that provides Smart-Safe status information. One Smart-Safe in the backroom of each store tends to work best.

Department Store

Department stores have payment terminals spread across very large square footage. A Smart-Safe at each payment terminal is ideal for ensuring cash received is authentic and safe when accepted. Alternatively, cash from the many terminals may be consolidated to a backroom Smart-Safe for armored car pickup.

Hospital

Cash payments can be made at many points within a hospital. Each department typically has many payment stations to accept copays, uninsured procedure payments, and payments for dispensary products. Networking distributed Smart-Safes will help keep hospital management informed of where cash is located and when it is in need of consolidation or armored car pickup.

Pharmacy

Drug and convenience items found in pharmacies are often paid for in cash. A back-room Smart-Safe or distributed safes at the various points of sale at the back pharmacy counter and the front merchandise counter work well.

Movie Theater

In movie theaters, cash is collected for ticket sales and for concessions. Having a Smart-Safe near the ticket sales counter and one behind the concession counter is ideal.

Kiosk Store

Small mall kiosks or outdoor shopping carts are popular places for customers to spend cash. A compact safe that can be hidden away in a cabinet is perfect for this application.

Clinic

Cash payments are common at medical clinics especially for those servicing the needs of the uninsured or underinsured. A compact or small sized Smart-Safe will keep your cash secure throughout the day.

Gymnasium

Health club membership is on the rise and so is the trend of pay-per-use and value added service fees giving customers a pay-as-you-go experience. A back-room Smart-Safe is an ideal choice to manage your cash.

Stadium Concession

Ticket sales, hotdogs, beers, snacks and merchandise all bring in enormous amounts of cash. Customers expect fast service to avoid missing game time action. Smart-Safes located close to the payment terminal are essential.
