CNS introduces automated teller safe from Wincor Nixdorf

Computer Network Systems (CNS) has released the Wincor Nixdorf ProCash 6100 automated teller safe (ATS) in the UAE market. The ATS can dispense cash from a teller request, in a similar way to an ATM machine.

The machine can accept cash, recognise different banknotes, check for forgery and deposit the cash in a safe. A recycling mechanism allows the cash deposited by a certain customer to be dispensed again to another ATS. This means that the ATS does not have to be replenished as often as normal safe. Both deposit and dispensing functions can only be executed through the bank’s branch application. “Our philosophy at CNS is to provide solutions for cost optimisation, complexity reduction and overall improvement of service to the end customer, for the different business processes at work within banks,” says Nicolas Barakat, operations manager, banking and finance business unit in CNS. “The ProCash 6100 is another interpretation of this philosophy.” “This solution increases the flexibility of bank processes by efficiently simplifying and accelerating cash transactions, thus giving staff more time to advise and personally interact with their customers,” adds Barakat. Since all cash operations are controlled by the bank’s application, including refill and take out, the actual cash situation is always tallying with the books, therefore no daily cash reconciliation is necessary. A counterfeit note detection module stops any forgeries from entering the cash cycle and as the unit is built as a premium industry standard safe, it allows the bank to place the unit in an open-plan customer zone, which maps allows for flexible branch interior design. The recycling feature of the Wincor Nixdorf ProCash 6100 ensures a closed cash transaction loop of deposit and dispensing, while its safe relieves the bank from having to collect the cash from the counters at the end of each day. Additionally, the Wincor Nixdorf ProCash 6100 also gives the branch manager instant access to information such as the total amount of cash, and different denominations available in each and every machine. One ATS can be shared by two tellers, but the application keeps track and detailed log for each teller separately. Currently such information is not possible except after time-consuming post-processing of deposit transactions after business hours by bank employees.
