Cash Connect launches KZN branch

April 2015 News

Cash Connect Management Solutions has opened a new branch in Durban’s Westville area. Cash is the target for over 95% of armed robberies in South Africa. More and more retailers are therefore starting to realise that their conventional cash handling processes are not adequate in this day and age.

In the eight years of providing cash acceptance devices, Cash Connect’s retail clients have reported only two armed robbery attempts, thus proving the inherent deterrent qualities of Cash Connect’s Category 4 SABS certified cash vaults.

“The growth of Cash Connect’s clients in KwaZulu-Natal and our commitment to customer service are the stimuli for this exciting expansion,” says Richard Phillips, Joint CEO of Cash Connect Management Solutions. “It’s our mission to be the preferred independent specialist in the supply of credible, secure cash and payment solutions. Cash Connect also prides itself on the fact that their customers are 40 times less likely to be hit by an armed attack.”

Its systems not only help the retailer to reduce his costs of cash management, but they also significantly improve his cash risk profile, both within the store and while the deposit is in the custody of the cash-in-transit carrier.

“The most recent crime statistics released by the South African Police Service indicate that KwaZulu-Natal is one of the provinces with the most violent crimes in the country. These statistics include some of the highest murder rates and armed robberies”, says Phillips.

It’s therefore imperative that the retail sector adjusts to the way managing cash and payment requirements have changed. The old, traditional way of handling cash no longer makes good business sense. As long as cash is king, the province’s businesses, as all others, will remain vulnerable to armed robbery.”
