With the Bank of England recently extending its paper-to-polymer transition to include £20 notes, Cashmaster International, one of the leading companies in the global cash management sector, is reminding retailers to keep ahead of upcoming changes.
The company has introduced a ’Be Polymer Ready’ upgrade pack, which allows UK customers to count both paper and polymer notes. In addition, all new Cashmaster devices will be fully polymer compatible.
Gordon McKie, CEO of Cashmaster International, said: "The introduction of polymer is likely to be one of the key changes facing the UK retail sector this year. Whether it’s a sole independent trader counting his takings or a multiple operator aggregating sales across many branches, the challenge remains the same. Our customers and their staff need to count cash quickly and accurately.
"Effective cash management allows retailers’ staff to spend more time with customers and underpins store security and profitability."
