ATS Money Systems, Inc., announced Monday a new product for the retail store cash office — the ATS-6000 Electronic Currency Counting Scale. The ATS-6000 is the first in a series of new models for release in 1999 and is available for immediate delivery. The new ATS-6000 scale accurately and quickly counts bills, coins, coupons and gift certificates, on a single machine, utilizing a unique weighing technology that replaces up to three conventional machines. The new ATS-6000 series includes improved ergonomics, more powerful cash office programs and improved communications. Typical applications include register audits, starting fund set-up, bank deposit preparation, bank change order verification and safe audits. The ATS-6000 provides advanced communications with upload and download capabilities allowing the machines to be managed centrally as well as update central sales audit systems. The ATS-6000 may be used in a stand-alone configuration, interfaced with a printer for an instant audit trail, or integrated to custom cash office software. User programmable functions enable the scale to be easily set-up locally, or from central sites to meet specific counting procedures. Mr. James H. Halpin, Executive Vice President of ATS Money Systems, Inc., commented, “This new, improved scale technology will enable ATS to further accelerate and expand recent gains we have made in the grocery, fast food and convenience store markets as well as in our traditional markets of department store, home improvement centers and discount department stores.”
Retailers using this scale will benefit from notable labor savings and reduced counting errors, as well as a return on investment in less than a year, in most cases. The new ATS-6000 improved communication capabilities allows retailers to manage and integrate the cash office scale with other store systems maximizing and protecting their investment. The communications download functions include the capability to download from central sites, new set-up or denominations such as the upcoming NEW DOLLAR COIN.
