Get Smart. Take CONTROL of Your Cash Business

Let’s talk money. If your business is a retail store, pawnshop, jewelry shop, fast-food restaurant, dispensary, or another cash-heavy establishment, you know how cash management can easily become one of the most consuming and labor-intensive aspects of your work. This is especially true if you have numerous employees who regularly deposit cash in your safe. While ensuring that deposits are secure and kept in a first-rate safe is of foremost importance, upgrading to a Smart Safe can dramatically increase your control of any business with a preponderance of cash transactions.

Unlike digital safes that are designed for businesses without many depositors and that might need to stash other valuables in addition to money, American Security CashWizard Smart Safes are the perfect multi-user solution for managing cash deposits, whether you have a staff of five or 500. The safes allow each person to have a unique pin number that automatically tracks their deposits. This can significantly reduce time spent on manual cash counts and lower the risk of cashier errors. Smart Safes can also enhance each employee’s accountability for their daily deposits.

By simplifying and automating many routine tasks, CashWizard Smart Safes empower managers to focus more on growing and maintaining the business than micromanaging shift deposits. Wherever your busy schedule takes you – the back office, head office, trade show, vacation, or maybe working from home, CashWizard cloud-based technology enables you to remotely track deposits and monitor balances, in near real-time. A simple and intuitive interface on your tablet, phone, or desktop computer provides access to analytics, critical business data, daily reports, and a patented change-order system, whenever you need them. Your SmartSafe can also communicate directly with a financial institution of your choosing, alerting it to deposit details before it even leaves the premises. And, each CashWizard Smart Safe has the capacity to uniformly stack different denominations of bills and detect counterfeit money, further mechanizing your cash processing.

If you have a fast-food restaurant, dispensary, or convenience store you know how quickly cash registers can fill up and that exposure to theft is always a looming issue. Installing a Smart Safe, just below the counter, is your best option for securely managing a busy, cash-heavy environment with multiple cashiers. No more slowing down the register between shifts.

Perhaps you run a beauty salon and the cash component of your business flows at a slightly slower pace, with a few days or more between trips to the bank. A CashWizard Smart Safe means that on-site, or remotely, you can confirm daily deposits and know who made them. You’ll receive the data you need to analyze trends and develop informed growth strategies.

Or, let’s say your business has multiple locations. Smart Safes are a great way to develop continuity in the management processes across sites and to more easily analyze day-part revenues that can dictate important operational decisions.

SureAccessTM for your armored courier

CashWizard Smart Safes also help business owners work more efficiently than ever with their armored courier to promote safety, accuracy, and minimize loss. American Security recently debuted its patented SureAccessTM, keyless courier app, which further streamlines courier interactions by ensuring access to depository safes without a physical key that could be lost or require replacing with a new safe purchase.

Cash is Boss

Whether your cash deposits are picked up daily by an armored courier or you personally bring it to the bank once a week, installing a Cash Wizard SmartSafe is a smart move that can save time, increase precision and productivity, and limit discrepancies in your accounting.


Up Your Protection with a High-Security Safe

Smash-and-grab robberies? Follow-home incidents? Tech-savvy gangs and lone wolf criminals? Alarming crime stories on the front pages of newspapers across the country can’t help but keep businesses and homeowners on edge, scrambling to assess whether their valuables are as secure as they can be.

A recent article by the consumer financial services company, Bankrate, recounts the FBI statistic that there are more than 1 million burglaries each year in the U.S. — a new one occurring nearly every 26 seconds. Every 26 seconds?!? So, how can you defend yourself from becoming one of them?

When it comes to theft, locked doors, cameras, alarms, and security lighting are your first line of defense. But, once your home or workplace is breached, a quality safe becomes the ultimate key to securing cash, prized possessions, important documents, and other media. Safes come in all shapes and sizes, but essential to their integrity is how they’re constructed. Some can effectively shield your valuables from burglars but others can be broken into with a quick series of blows to the door or sides. Some locks are built to withstand almost any break-in attempt, but there are plenty on the market that can be quickly busted open with any decent set of tools.

Certain safes are so small and lightweight that thieves can walk off with them, nearly as easily as cigar boxes. Check out these recent heists at a Popeyes Louisiana Chicken in New York and at the Pancakes and Waffles restaurant in Oahu, Hawaii.

According to InForum, a city official in Fargo, North Dakota recently remarked on a spate of safe local burglaries by saying, “Some of the safes are being cut open, while others are being carried out on a dolly. The suspects are in and out within four minutes or less usually.”

Buying a lousy safe is like stepping into a rainstorm carrying an umbrella with holes in it. If you don’t invest in a product that suits your needs, it’s hardly worth buying at all.

The best way to preserve valuable or irreplaceable property at businesses like jewelry stores, dispensaries, banks, and antique or pawn shops, is with high-security safes that can effectively foil even the most skillful intruders. These safes are constructed with businesses in mind but are also suited to residences, especially when there are unique and high-value items, jewelry, or cash to protect.

AMVAULT TL-30 and TL-15 high-security safes from American Security are engineered to protect valuables from fire, heat, and even the most industrious criminals. They are available in a wide range of sizes and offer customization options that can accommodate almost any configuration. Every AMVAULT commercial-grade safe includes a U.L. listed label for its ability to fend off arduous break-in attempts with tools such as sledgehammers, power saws, carbide disc cutters, and drills.

The AMVAULT TL-30 high-security safe series earned a U.L. listed TL-30 classification for their ability to handle full-throttle break-in attempts for 30 minutes. AMVAULT TL-15 High-Security Safes carry a U.L. listed TL-15 classification for successfully resisting the same grueling attack for 15 minutes.

Along with protection from break-ins, all AMVAULT safes also have two-hour, 350-degree factory fire test certifications, and are engineered to insulate precious contents from intense heat and flame.

The integrity of these top-of-the-line safes is confirmed by their insurability. With the TL-15’s door proving tool resistant for at least 15 minutes, your safe’s contents are potentially insured for up to $125,000. The TL-30s have doors that have demonstrated tool resistance for a minimum of 30 minutes and are potentially insurable for up to $250,000.

In these days of ever more clever, nefarious, and brazen thieves, upgrading to a high-security, user-friendly safe, specifically suited to your business or home, is the best investment you can make for peace of mind.
