Smart Safe Innovations from AMSEC

AMSEC was recently awarded a U.S. patent which governs the ability of its line of smart safes to automatically connect to a bank or third party to place a change order. Here’s how this recent innovation is a valued benefit.

AMSEC’s smart safes have secure chambers for receiving cash deposits and a sensor for counting the secured cash. The safes allow merchants to buy change in specific denominations. During the courier pick-up, the courier retrieves the cash deposited and delivers the change order. The customer is debited when the change order is placed and credited when the daily credit file is sent to the customer’s bank. This greatly simplifies reconciliation for the customer.
