Two Real Dangers of Not Using an American Security Smart Safe: Counterfeit Money and Human Error

Cash management is a challenge without smart technology to help countermand two problems that frequently occur – counterfeit money and human error.

Counterfeit currency is an enormous problem in the U.S. and abroad. It’s estimated that at any given time as much as $70 million in counterfeit money is circulating in this country. That’s a major problem for retailers and businesses dealing in cash. But there’s another element that plagues cash management in business and often occurs both innocently and blameworthy–human error.

Transactional errors are bound to occur and are often innocently done, but with a process of accountability built into your cash management procedures, the odds diminish greatly, whether unintentional or not. The lack of due diligence and process in cash handling means that problems with bookkeeping, fraud, theft, errors and cash flow are more likely to occur.

Fake Money Hurts Business

Any business can become a victim of counterfeit money, and there’s no easy remedy to finding funny money in your register. You report it to comply with the counterfeit money laws, but don’t expect the government to replace it with the real deal. It won’t happen.

Your best option to recover losses is insurance. Without an insurance policy to cover the receipt of counterfeit money, your business must suffer the loss. And while insurance is important and certainly smart to have, the advantages of the latest smart safe digital technology is even smarter.

Smart Security Pays
