Why Do I Need Bill and Coin Counters?

Anyone who owns a carwash, laundromat or a similar “coin-based” business knows some days bring in A LOT more than pocket change. Cash handling can tie up a good part of your business day. Cash counters can be great investments to help you handle the flow! Your time is valuable. These easy-to-use machines can drastically cut counting time from that to manually count and roll currency. By taking on this task on your own, you also avoid fees and rules often imposed by banks to do the work for you. With your own equipment, you have the tech at hand to count and package accurately on your own timeline, not on banking hours.

Counting cash and coins by hand costs you far more than time. Human error can cut into profits, too. Currency counters dramatically reduce calculating errors which can save you tons over time. They not only do help you avoid accounting errors, but also save you the time it would take to track and correct the mistakes.

The handling of money may now be a thought more than ever in post-pandemic culture. Cash is dirty, and the less you and your team need to handle it, the better. Machines can minimize contact and risk to you and your employees. So, whether you’re counting coins in bags or rolling them for deposit, your business can benefit from a coin and/or note counter on several levels.

Money scales count coins and banknotes six times faster than by hand, and twice as quick as using separate note and coin counters.The advantage of a scale is that it can count both coins and bills at the same time, giving an accurate count without the need for 2 separate machines.
