Volumatic Launch Unique Secure Cash Trolley

Cash-handling expert Volumatic has launced a new addition to its range - the Secure Cash Trolley, designed to help businesses hold cash and keep staff safer while cash is being moved around the shop floor.

The new Volumatic Secure Cash Trolley was developed following a special request for a sturdier and even more secure trolley from one of the company’s customers - Tesco.

The Volumatic technical team worked closely with the Tesco team to manufacture an innovative design of robust, steel construction, but with lots of ’clever new features’ for safe transportation for cash from point of collection to the cash office.

The Secure Cash Trolley’s design allows cash or other valuables to be deposited through the top-loading door simply and quickly, but with no access to the cash via the top-loading door once placed inside, preventing any unauthorised removal. Cash can only be accessed from the trolley’s large capacity interior cash compartment via the securely locked side door, which helps businesses with both internal and external shrinkage.

The trolley’s ergonomic design makes it easy for operators to safely manoeuvre and control even when fully loaded with cash. It also boasts side skirts, making the trolley difficult to lift, carry, tip, or drag by would-be thieves, plus unique speed-locking wheels, which engage when the trolley is pushed above normal walking speed. Both features significantly hinder the theft of the cash trolley should a would-be thief try to grab and run off with it, and therefore reduce the risk of attacks on staff.

Volumatic technical director Neil Shute, who heads up the team that developed the new Secure Cash Trolley, commented: “We are delighted to be launching our new Secure Cash Trolley after spending many months developing all the new features. Tesco gave us a real challenge in building them a new trolley, but their input was vital in making this product a true market leader and we are proud to have risen to the challenge once again.”

Kevin Mayne, Technology Programme Manager at Tesco, said: “The kind of cash trolley we needed was not available on the market, and as Volumatic currently supply us with their secure CCi solution to help process our cash takings, we knew we could rely on them to build a cash trolley to the exact specifications that we needed. In particular, the speed-locking wheels feature is a revolution in current cash trolley security and really is a game-changer for the industry.

Volumatic sales & marketing director Mike Severs added: “The Secure Cash Trolley is our second new product launch in recent months, following our upgraded CountEasy 2 money scales and shows the commitment and versatility in Volumatic products. We are proud to be rolling out this trolley to Tesco stores in the coming weeks and we are sure it will benefit many more retailers in the future to help them make their cash handling more secure and keep their staff safer daily.”

In addition to this new Secure Cash Trolley, Volumatic can also manufacture custom cash trolleys to bespoke specifications to meet with all retail security solutions.
