Smart Connectivity for Smart Safes
Smart Safes have completely changed the way we think about cash management. With real-time processing and secure storage, smart safes go above and beyond traditional cash handling processes. One of the most integral pieces of how Smart Safes function is their ability to connect online. Connectivity for smart safes ensures that they're able to automatically accept, validate, record, and store notes in a secure environment. Connectivity for smart safes can be made to the store’s network, or to a central console/dashboard at the store’s headquarters, a store’s bank, or a store’s cash-in-transit provider, or all of the above. With Smart’s Safes capabilities heavily relying on strong connectivity, it’s important to consider a managed wireless solution. A Smart Safe is able to capture vital data and process information, why shouldn’t your connectivity be able to function similarly? With a managed wireless solution, your connectivity is monitored and able to capture data that tells you when your Smart Safe is working properly and when there is an error. It can also monitor data usage and alert you when you’re close to going over your data plan, ultimately saving you time and money. Connectivity, combined with the report generation capability, enables retailers to leverage a Smart Safe in such a way that they can effectively and efficiently close the cash management loop.
