What is a drop safe?

Retail drop safes are cash machines which retailers use to drop their cash into, in an attempt to keep the cash safe, before it is collect by cash-in-transit (CIT) security services. Drop safes are not automated, and do not provide the necessary security, cash management intelligence or business efficiency as retail cash vaults do.

Why should retailers invest in a cash vault?

Retail cash vaults like the range offered by Cash Connect are intelligent, robust and automated business safes, designed specifically for the retail sector, providing the necessary security, cash management and business efficiency that a retail business needs. Cash Connect’s range of robust cash vaults saves retailers both time and money by completely eliminating the need to count and recount the notes and prepping the cash for a cash-in-transit (CIT) collection.

Retailers who make use of Cash Connect’s range of cash vaults, enjoy a host of benefits including effective crime deterrent, business efficiency, real-time cash settlements, instant access to cash and improved cash flow – ultimately, a holistic and intelligent cash solution for the retailer. Cash Connect’s robust and automated cash vaults are coupled with an online portal for retailers to track their cash and to allow for quick and easy cash reconciliations.
