Best Practices for Operating TCRs

In today’s COVID-19 environment, fully leveraging the benefits of teller cash recyclers (TCR) is paramount.  Cash recycling reduces the opportunity for multiple touchpoints, expedites the cash handling process, and ultimately provides a safer workspace for staff and improves customer experience.

As a leader in cash automation solutions, QDS would like to reinforce a few key best practices when operating TCRs:

Stop Manual Counting

There is no reason for tellers to manually count cash deposits and withdrawals when using a TCR. Trust your TCR to do the dirty work while eliminating unnecessary touchpoints and reducing customer wait times in the process. In doing so, we typically see average cash handling time reduced from 45 seconds to 8 seconds per transaction.

Automate Cash Audits

Eliminating manual audits eliminates unnecessary touchpoints, reduces cash exposure, and dramatically speeds up the audit process. The Hyosung MS500 TCR provides the option to self-audit part or all its content without physically removing cash from the unit.

Your Cash Recycler is a Floor Vault

Keep your lanes moving by reducing repeated dual-control trips to the vault. Maintaining drawer levels is a major headache. Utilize the TCR as a floor vault and reduce the number of transactions requiring dual control. Doing so can deliver a 90% efficiency gain in supervisors’ time in dealing with vault transactions.

Limit Teller Exposure

Tellers without TCRs must arrive at the branch 15-20 minutes early to find their drawer, count it, and then login to the teller system. With a TCR, they simply show up 5 minutes before open, turn on their PC, and login.

Mixed Deposits and Night Drops

The TCR counts, sorts and scans for counterfeit bills all at the same time, making an extremely efficient process for counting and storing mixed cash – and eliminating unnecessary touchpoints. By storing deposited mixed cash in the machine, it enables the teller to use it on demand for other customer transactions, streamlining and speeding up the rate and accuracy of cash returned.
