ARCA Project Management

Precision coordination and worry-free deployment.

The first advantage in our 5 Point Service Advantage is the ARCA Project Management Team. These professionals manage cash recycler installations and the integration processes for our customers. They also coordinate TCR or retail cash recycler moves, cassette upgrades, and removal and disposal of obsolete equipment.

When you purchase a new teller cash recycler or retail cash recycler, your ARCA Project Manager will contact you to confirm the details of your order and provide you with information to prepare for your installation. They will send you several documents including a Site Preparation Guide. This guide is designed for your specific system and will describe space and power requirements and networking information for your IT staff.

Your Project Manager will then schedule an Installation Kick Off Call. This call, approximately 30 days prior to the installation, is very important as it makes sure everyone is working together as a team with the same expectations. The Kick Off Call is the opportunity to answer any questions concerning the installation process.

All stakeholders should be in attendance including your main contact, IT contact, facilities managers, operation managers, and customer facing staff like tellers or cashiers. ARCA staff on the Kick Off Call will include your Project Manager, a Senior Support Technician and Senior Installation Technician.

During the Kick Off Call, your Project Manager will describe what the installation process will look like at your location so you will have a clear understanding of what to expect on that day. They will walk you through what the ARCA trained and certified installation team will do onsite to properly deliver, install and connect the hardware.

Your ARCA Project Manager’s goal is to take the worry out of the installation and integration process. They will also remain your contact for service for the life of your ARCA system, so if you have a problem, you know who to call.

What does an installation look like?

Your ARCA Installation and Training Technician will arrive at your location and lead the installation of your new equipment. Your ARCA hardware will be delivered by two additional technicians, or riggers, who specialize in moving heavy equipment.

The team will ensure the path to the installation site is clear and will lay material to protect the flooring. The ARCA machine will be carefully brought into the branch on a standard pallet jack.

Once the unit is in place, the ARCA Technician will connect the hardware and software to your location systems. They will configure the recycler to your specifications and confirm that the unit is functioning properly.

Once installation and integration is complete, the ARCA Installation and Training Technician will train the customer facing staff how to operate the hardware and will remain on-site throughout the day to assist and answer any questions.

Proactive performance monitoring.

One of the many advantages in ARCA’s 5 Point Service Advantage is ARCA Care, our comprehensive service portal. ARCA Care’s automatic reporting system allows us to monitor the health of your machine and detect a performance issue before it becomes a problem, maximizing your device’s uptime. It’s a service portal where service history, machine data and technician information come together to form a complete performance picture.

How it works.

ARCA teller cash recyclers and retail cash recyclers have the ability to send a log file automatically, on a daily basis to the ARCA Care database. The log is an outbound file that is received by ARCA then decrypted, allowing the ARCA Care team to see any areas of concern or where support may be needed.

Is the data transmission safe from an IT security perspective?

Yes. The log files are outbound, one-way, encrypted data files. The data allows ARCA to assess behavior of a device during a specific period of time.The log files do not contain any proprietary information. TCRs and retail cash recyclers are not able to receive inbound messages.

Why ARCA Care? Here are a few of the benefits:

Increases efficiency

  • Issues are diagnosed on a remote basis, saving valuable maintenance time and unnecessary equipment outages.
  • Service technicians know the issues and bring the right parts on the first call 93% of the time.
  • Prioritizes higher maintenance (preventive/corrective) actions.
  • Data collection is automatic allowing analysis to begin immediately.

Prolongs productivity

  • Reduces/eliminates unnecessary downtime and emergency repairs.
  • Extends equipment life.
  • Expands maintenance intervals.
  • Moves from the typical “time-­based maintenance” to a “condition-­based maintenance” approach.
