The problem with cash

Everyday, retail businesses have to stop and take employees away from making money, so they can count it. No matter how you look at it, time spent manually processing cash is a money loser. 

The CM18 Evo cash recycler drastically reduces the time you spend counting and recounting cash, so you can get your staff back to the sales floor fast. 

What is cash recycling?

Cash in, cash out.

Cash recycling technology optimizes cash flow within the retail business. It reduces the amount of cash in the store by taking in cash as a deposit and reusing, (recycling), the same notes for use in the next shift's tills. Excess cash is sent to the bank. The amount of operational float is greatly reduced. This puts more money in the store's bank account instead of the store.   

Start and end of shift processes are automated and labor can be re-allocated to more profitable, customer-centric activities. A complete, fast ROI is on your way.

The Hardware

Proven reliability and flexibility

The CM18 Evo is a workhorse of a machine and ARCA has engineered redundancies into the cash recycler. This ensures that the technology stays running even in the most demanding environments. 

The CM18T Evo offers scalable cash capacity. You can start out with eight cash recycling cassette modules and if that's all you need, you're done. But if your business grows faster than you expect you can add four more cassettes without replacing the whole machine. You decide which denominations you recycle and which ones you dispense for CIT pickup.

It all depends on your unique cash flow. Our philosophy is one size never fits all.
