LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Jan 13, 2014) - Balance Innovations has introduced its latest solution for retailers: vbSecure, an electronic-safe management tool. The solution is available now and is offered in a no-cost pilot program.
vbSecure, which integrates with safes from Armor Safe Technologies, makes managing electronic safes more efficient by automatically integrating safe transactions with the POS through VeriBalance, Balance Innovations' cash office management solution. vbSecure is primarily used in three ways: with electronic safes in fuel centers, with electronic safes being used to replace podium drawers at the front end of a retail store, and with electronic safes located in the cash office.
When used with a safe in a fuel center, vbSecure allows remote monitoring of safe funds from the cash office and automatically incorporates funds from the safe in daily reconciliation. Because funds are accounted for automatically, cash can be transported to and from the fuel center less often, reducing risk.
At the front end, electronic safes can be used in place of a podium drawer. In this case, vbSecure allows the cash office to remain closed throughout the day and automates front end processes. It also eliminates the need for manual reports because the transactions to the safe are accounted for electronically.
When used with an electronic safe in the cash office, vbSecure reduces labor associated with preparing daily deposits, as well as armored car pickups and associated fees. Because it is integrated with the POS through VeriBalance, it also eliminates manual entry and transposition errors.
"Electronic safes are a great loss prevention tool," said Rob Bryer, senior vice president of product management. "vbSecure adds another layer of protection and efficiency to these safes, making a great tool even better."
"We are so pleased to partner with Balance Innovations to provide retailers with this solution," said Larry Robinson, president and managing partner for Armor Safe Technologies. "Working with them creates opportunities for Armor Safe to enter new markets and further expand our reach."
