Smart Safe Case Study

ArmorSafe and OptConnect Case Study

Transcript:

The idea most people begin within they think they need to get a safe is to protect against external theft. Increasingly the threat is actually also internal theft.

The hallmark of a smart safe is the inclusion of bill validators which count and validate that the currency is in fact good. The safe will sign a date timestamp to the transaction keeping track of which employee deposited the money and when they did

Basically eliminates the opportunity for internal cash theft.

Getting your data is as important as a safe itself working.

Using ArmorSafe with the OptConnect modem is just beautiful synergy.

Even over a wired network there’s still room for concern about running that cat5 cable from the safe and over to the router onsite.

The OptConnect plugs into the safe and then it creates its own cellular data network that is secure.

Physically owning a smart save tells somebody you are intelligently managing your cash.  You’re making it hard for the criminal to be a criminal.

So with Optconnect its more than just a supplier it is a partnership.

Anyone used to dealing with a large amount of cash knows hard currency can save a lot of money in purchase transaction fees and other expenditures. Having cash on hand can also create a number of additional problems. While credit card transactions are automatically authorized, processed and deposited, those handling paper payments must deal with counterfeit currency, and a stack of bills and change waiting to be taken to the bank.

Fortunately, technology has finally seen fit to help alleviate some of these cash difficulties through the introduction of the smart safe or intelligent safe.
