GT open day a success

September 2012 News

During a two-day showcase, Global Payment Technologies (GPT), a Bidvest company, introduced various new payment technologies to South African customers. Exhibitors including; Talaris, Sallen, Scan Coin, Sumetzberger, JVL, Suzo Happ, AccuCoin, C-SAM, Hess and Glory, all exhibited technologies to assist in managing and securing cash. Customers from across South Africa attended at The Venue, Melrose Arch, to view these new technologies.

Exhibitors attended from across the globe to showcase their product lines to banking, retail and gaming customers in South Africa. Product ranges included equipment such as precision coin and token counting instruments, multi-currency detectors, cash deposit and recycling systems, the Sumetzberger system, counting machines, banknote value counters and validators, banknote deposit machines and a new bank note processor with auto strapping technology.

Today’s market focus is optimisation. The cash crunch forces companies to look at ways of conducting business in a more cost-effective, and more efficient, manner. In line with this, one of the products exhibited at the showcase was the UWH-1000EU, which improves the efficiency and productivity of cash management through sorting and strapping cash within the cash centre or financial institution. Cash handling is thus much more efficient, while reliable counterfeit detection adds a further security measure. Up to 1000 mixed notes can be fed into the machine, which will count the notes and sort them into their different denominations. The system also effectively recycles notes, re-strapping them for distribution to ATMs or branches.

Another machine which generated much interest at the showcase was the DE-100 Banknote Deposit Machine. Notes can be deposited into the machine and are then counted, approved and committed to a storage bag. Mutilated notes or other non-cash items such as gift vouchers can be manually entered and added to the total. The machine has a capacity to store up to 500 banknotes safely in a bag after counting. Counterfeit notes are identified and will not be added to the total amount deposited.

The Glory RVG-100 high capacity note recycler system received a lot of attention on the day. As demand for a high speed, high capacity note recycler which enables users to conduct fitness sorting is currently very high, both in the banking and retail industries, much interest was shown in this system. The RVG-100 is cassette based to enable full capacity; the system holds five cassettes with a combined note capacity of 12 600 notes. Although recycling systems which work with drums are efficient, their capacity is medium in comparison to those that work with cassettes, which have a high capacity. The RVG-100 is the only system of its kind globally and also boasts the fastest recycling time worldwide, being 10 notes per second. In addition, the system works with a back-end system – I-Tram – that manages the various incoming and outgoing transactions at all times, providing customers with full reconciliations of all transactions.
