Wayne County Treasurer’s Office Reaps Benefits of Rolled Storage Module Technology By Deploying Eight (8) CIMA Teller Cash Recyclers

Wayne County Treasurer’s Office Reaps Benefits of Rolled Storage Module Technology By Deploying Eight (8) CIMA Teller Cash Recyclers

MINNEAPOLIS, MN [March 31, 2022]

Vita Lansworth is pleased to announce the sale and installation of eight (8) CIMA Teller Cash Recyclers at the Wayne County Treasurer’s Office (WCTO) in Detroit, Michigan.

The county government office was seeking to replace outdated competitor cash dispensers, as well as a replacement of recently installed competitor TCR’s that caused a costly workflow issue to their end-of-day settlement process.

WCTO sought out the CIMA rolled storage module technology for the ability to settle exactly down to the dollar. With no overflow or reject bin, notes are deposited, counted, withdrawn, or plainly rejected. WCTO was looking to replace their existing solution due to a “diverter” function that would reject imperfect bank notes to a separate bin, so the rejected notes are not dispensed as change to customers. Dealing with rejected bank notes and having to replace the diverted bills at the end of the day, was a timely and costly process that did not work for their operation.

WCTO had a long-term partnership with AvivaTech (formerly Benchmark Technology Group) utilizing their CashWare cash automation software and wanted to maintain the efficiencies and consistency for their cashiers. CIMA Teller Cash Recyclers are certified to operate on the CashWare platform which made the hardware an ideal solution as their cashiers would not have to learn a new system.

After a comparison of CIMA models and successful deployment of a demo unit, WCTO management made the decision to purchase 8 CIMA TCR unit’s which included seven (7) of the AST7016’s and one (1) AST70000-NT5. The 7016/7000’s were selected as WCTO preferred a solution that did not capture internally rejected bank notes. Management was sold on the track record and dependability of CIMA machines. Tom Oden, President of Vita Lansworth stated, “County and local government are subject to many of the same cash handling challenges financial institutions face to improve efficiency and security, as well as reducing labor costs. We are excited the CIMA solution was able to resolve the process issues Wayne County faced with a competitor solution and look forward to building the CIMA footprint in the government sector.”

Vita Lansworth’s CIMA Service and Technical Expert, Marcus Bauer, oversaw the onsite installation and bring live of each unit. “Lansworth provided first class service. The Lansworth team supervised the installation and did not leave until the process was complete,” stated Carl Stafford, Interim Deputy Treasurer – Financial Services, Office of Wayne Country Treasurer.

Stafford also added, “The machines function great, and have not disappointed WCTO, plus our cashiers enjoy using them.” WCTO has experienced a substantial decrease in overtime expense attributed to not having to deal with the diverted bills, resulting in reduced labor costs. Added Stafford, “It is very rare that anything goes wrong with the CashWare software. Complex customization to software was necessary, and it works well for our operation.”

WCTO has 15 cashier stations and 8 TCR’s. One of the functions of WCTO is to collect delinquent taxes on behalf of 43 municipalities within Wayne County, Michigan. During high volume periods, WCTO services 500-700 taxpayers per day and over 1,500 separate transactions. WCTO accepts cash, checks and credit cards.

1166 Federal Credit Union Deploys First U.S. Install of CIMA CashUp Software with AST7000-NT5 Teller Cash Recycler

Successful sale and installation completed by Shields Business Solutions in partnership with Vita Lansworth, U.S. Distributor for CIMA Teller Cash Recyclers

August 31, 2020 – Vita Lansworth is pleased to announce the sale and installation, and first U.S. deployment of the CIMA CashUp software at 1166 Federal Credit Union (1166 FCU) of Swedesboro, NJ.

This program application was designed to provide transactional interaction in a stand-alone environment for CIMA Teller Cash Recyclers. 1166 FCU purchased the fit-for-purpose, AST7000-NT5 for greater teller efficiencies and branch security in their newly designed Café Main Office Branch, but received more benefit than anticipated with the onset of COVID-19.

1166 FCU tends to consider themselves a bit “old school.” Just as the COVID pandemic started to gain momentum in March 2020, they realized their credit union had made a wise decision. They purchased and installed a CIMA AST7000-NT5 TCR.

“We simply love our CIMA TCR, I wish we would’ve had it 20 years ago,” said Annemarie Shinn, CEO for 1166 FCU.  “Just as COVID hit, our TCR was installed and ready for operation.  It has helped to keep our staff from handling cash, keeping transactions very clean. Our members love it.  Our staff loves it.  It truly has been a godsend.”

1166 FCU made the decision to deploy CIMA’s CashUp software solution to run their AST7000-NT5. This cost-effective software was designed to run all the necessary transactions for day-to-day, including daily balancing, in a stand-alone environment performed on a PC.  According to Shinn, “The software is very easy to work.  Being the first install in the U.S., we received fabulous support to adapt to our teller platform from Vita Lansworth’s Service and Support Engineer, Marcus Bauer, as well as the team from CIMA Italy.  We’ve had no jams, and no hardware errors. We literally have not had to open the lid.”

Shinn also stated, “I did a lot of research trying to find the right Teller Cash Recycler.  As a member of the CrossStates Credit Union Association, I talked to a lot of credit unions.  It seemed several institutions told me they are using outdated machines and simply were not able to find affordable replacements. While some had them, I learned many organizations were still looking for them.  John McKinley of Shields Business Solutions, a Vita Lansworth partner, directed me to the CIMA TCR, and this unit has made our operation a whole lot better.”

 

About CashUp

New to the U.S. market, CIMA’s CashUp software will support any CIMA TCR configuration, including the new AST9000.  This software application was designed to provide transaction interaction in a stand-alone environment and can be easily adapted to individual teller platforms.

The software features:

  • Cash operations –Deposit, withdrawal, exchange, empty rolls, counting notes, move to bag, bag collection
  • Accounting management – Shared cash, Separated cash
  • Security – Delayed operations, alarm integration based on events, operating time bands
  • User management – Role base access control
  • Problem resolution – Display problem area, suggested resolution
