EDGEPoS Solutions: Glory Cash Management Integration with EDGEPoS
Results: Saves time, reduces stress - a safe and secure cash system
Henderson Technology has formed another key strategic partnership with the team behind the Glory Cash recycling system and has been installing them across both Henderson Group company owned and independent stores in Northern Ireland. Officially called the GLORT CHASINFINITYtm Back Office Cash Recycling Solution, the system is helping retailers save time, money, reduce stress – and operate with complete peace of mind.
Henderson Technology aims to bring efficiencies to all company owned and independent stores through it’s award winning EDGEPoS EPOS system. In July 2020, Glory was selected as the preferred supplier for in-store cash recycling technology to drive enhanced efficiency across all store cash processes including cash handling, cash management and CIT/banking processes, and the company fully integrated Glory with EDGEPoS.
The combined solution offers all retailers a seamless experience, allowing them to fully realise the true efficiency savings in their stores, and has exceeded all expectations since going live. When combined with Henderson Technology’s innovative EDGEPoS Self-Checkouts, stores can offer a fully secure and convenient experience for shoppers for all payment methods.
The system was initially tested in one of the Group’s EUROSPAR supermarkets and it delivered time efficiencies straight away through removing routine non value added tasks such as float replenishment, till uplifts, safe counting and lodgment preparation from store procedures. Despite the pandemic, and the reduction in cash transactions that came with it, the system clearly demonstrated a return on investment in time saving alone of over 30% and give the company the confidence to rapidly deploy across multiple sites.
Graham Johnston installed the Glory Cash Management system in April 2021 and explains the difference having the Glory integrated with EDGEPoS has meant at one of his stores, SPAR Ballybeen.
Graham says, “It’s been fantastic, and extremely efficient. It doesn’t just save time, it also frees up staff for the shop floor. It helps reduce stress – we don’t need to worry about whether or not the till will balance at the end of the day. There’s simply never going to be a discrepancy.”
“From a security perspective, the cash goes straight to the safe without anyone actually having to handle it. Everything is secure and password protected.”
“It eliminates any security concerns – the system even recognises forgeries and counterfeit notes, rejecting them instantly.”
“Change is given instantly – so much faster than the other self serve tills on the market”, Graham adds.
Graham also praises the presentation of the system. “It looks great – really presentable. From the point of view from the customer, it’s something new and they really like it.”
“Glory is also ideal for COVID as staff don’t have to handle money. Basically the cash gets sucked straight back to the back office.”
Graham concludes that it is an investment well worth making. SPAR Ballybeen is part of the 77 Retail Group, the plan is to roll out the system across it’s other stores. SPAR Lisburn Road is next to get the system installed, with further installs planned in coming months.
