Get Connected to the Virtual World of Cash Processing: Don’t Accept Less in Business Than at Home

Today, cash processing extends far beyond stand-alone, off-line banknote counting systems. Instead, it requires connected systems that meet the IT-network, security and communication protocol requirements of the modern IT-infrastructure they are embedded within. On top of this, software solutions are integrated into a bank’s or a cash center’s business processes. An ecosystem of related banknote processing solutions, along with data and service management applications, will support this integration and assure cost efficient, future-proof cash management.


 

Most Central Banks Have Clean Note Policies for Notes in Circulation but How Can Monitoring be Achieved in a Consistent, Uniform Manner?

As Central Banks and their commercial partners increasingly look to outsource note processing, how do they maintain visibility of the quality and authenticity of notes in the cash cycle? Innovia Systems has developed a range of solutions that enable organizations involved in banknote recirculation or policy enforcement to assess the authenticity of notes and also establish the quality of notes in a consistent manner at both a regional and national level. Smart automation, standardization and digitalization further increase efficiency throughout the cash cycle. Both, bank branches, with their widely distributed network of smaller processing devices, and even more so cash centers, expect high system availability and stringent security.


 

The Increasing Popularity of Alternative Substrates to the More Traditional Cotton Offers New Challenges for Counterfeiters, and Brings Confidence to the Market – Provided it is Appropriately Equipped

The introduction of new substrates, such as polymer, and the enhanced security features they bring means the capability of many traditional detection technologies are no longer state of the art. To address this, Innovia Systems has developed a range of detection devices for central banks, commercial processors, and retailers that provide quick and easy identification of suspect banknotes and thus reduce the impact of counterfeiting at all points in the cash cycle.

Smart Safe Lessons from the United States

The majority of cash handling businesses today still rely on traditional methods of cash management that are low value, high risk, and high cost. Such companies can dramatically improve the efficiency and accuracy of their cash management processes by leveraging technology to implement a complete cash management solution. Today’s intelligent cash management systems have been proven time and time again in markets around the world to improve cash management processes and to give managers more time to focus on the rest of the needs of their operation. Cash handling businesses as well as cash-in-transit (CIT) companies and the financial institutions serving them have achieved significant benefits and savings by embracing this technology.

Automation – How Can it be Used in Cash Processing?

Cash processors use varying amounts of automation in their processes and automation in general is on the increase. But what does automation actually mean? This breakout session will set out to answer this question and explore the different ways in which automation can increase efficiencies, reduce cost and ensure consistency and control. You will hear about automation using hardware, software and a combination of both, and an evaluation of the effectiveness of each.

As countries look to implement cash recycling frameworks, what are the main factors that must be considered? What are the market trends and drivers that make regulation necessary? Where are we headed in the future? This engaging session will look at all these factors, and draw on real-world case studies to understand the lessons that can be learned from past experiences. 

Commemorative Banknotes as an Experimental Field for the Introduction of Innovative Solutions

The use of commemorative banknotes in Africa and other continents could exceed their traditional function as simply a collector’s item. During the workshop we will present the commemorative banknotes which have been issued in Poland in the last few years. We will discuss the upgrades to Polish notes in circulation to show how the lessons learnt from the introduction of commemorative products can influence the process of banknote development. The general aim of the workshop is to “promote the idea” of introducing commemorative banknotes as the experimental field for innovative solutions.

End-to-End Design Perspectives on New African Coinage
