Launch of T-iX, weight-based cash counting system at NRF Expo
A UK-based retail systems manufacturer has responded to the global drive for faster and more accurate cash management processes in the retail, banking and foodservice sectors, with the launch of a revolutionary new product at the NRF 2010 show in New York, January 11-12.
T-iX is the latest weight-based cash counting system from Tellermate and is borne out of extensive research and the company's 29-year experience in the industry, working with major clients such as H&M, Sports Authority, Panda Express, Barclays and McDonalds. The T-iX will reduce the amount of time that needs to be devoted to counting and balancing cash drawers and guarantees more accurate management information.
Tellermate has spent two years researching, designing and developing the T-iX, working closely with its varied client base to retain the best features of existing products and introduce new features and functionality where required. Two of the company's biggest customers, Barclays in the UK and Disney in the US, have been involved in prototype trials and the range is set to be rolled out in January 2010. "With our latest product we have really returned to the roots of the company," commented Dave Lunn, VP of Global Sales & Marketing. "Tellermate products have always been designed to be a cashier's friend, to make processes more efficient and accurate but above all, be simple to use. We have returned to these key principles with T-iX and are confident that our customers will be pleased with the result."
Key elements of the product include developments in technical specification, such as greater connectivity to customers' back office systems. The product has been designed to integrate effectively with users' existing IT systems transferring data directly to the back office for analysis; allowing discrepancies to be identified and acted on. User-friendly design features aid in increasing business efficiencies. The large, high resolution backlit display enables the use of larger text and clear icons, and combines with the familiar navigation keys and user software to provide an intuitive, easy to operate user interface.
Revolutionary technology has been introduced into the machine so it is resistant to environmental fluctuations, such as air conditioning, that can affect counts. In addition, a liquid-resistant key mat and drainage lines minimize the effects of accidental damage from spills. The T-iX also has strong green credentials; it has a power save mode to conserve power if the unit is left unattended. The unit has a sensory battery that warns the user to switch to mains power before power goes, however, if the unit does lose power unexpectedly any current count data will be retained. The battery has an intelligent discharge feature that tells the user the battery has reached the end of its life and needs replacing.
