Bally Wulff Cash Management GmbH adopt SMART Coin System
 
Last month Bally Wulff Cash Management GmbH confirmed that it has adopted our SMART Coin System following a successful field trial.
 
Our collaboration with Bally Wulff Cash Management GmbH to create new, smaller, more flexible change machines started in the spring of 2014, with field trials using the SMART Coin System starting soon after. During the six month trial, the system’s speed and operational performance was evaluated, achieving outstanding results.
 
Andreas Günther, Managing Director of Bally Wulff Cash Management GmbH said: "When we firstheard about this new all-in-one coin handling solution we were immediately excited about the new opportunities this would open up for us. We worked closely with Innovative Technology and quickly found a way to integrate their SMART Coin System and their SMART Payout recycler into one of our existing coin change machine cabinets. This successful collaboration with Innovative
Technology has enabled us to create a state-of-the-art coin change machine that has a much smaller footprint than previous machines whilst delivering a significant improvement in operating speed and greater flexibility."
 
Marcus Tiedt, Sales Director of Innovative Technology said: "From the outset of the project Bally Wulff Cash Management GmbH’s hardware and software experts have worked closely with our team to ensure the success of this project. Bally Wulff Cash Management GmbH has always been at the forefront of the industry, adopting innovative solutions that improve efficiency and differentiate its service. The results of the field trial have been impressive delivering a reduction in operating costs. We’re delighted they’re adopting the SMART Coin System in the German market." 
 
The SMART Coin System validates, discriminates and stores mixed coins, eliminating the need for multiple hoppers. Boasting a market leading coin hopper capacity of 1500 x €1 and fully audited efficient refills, the SMART Coin System is designed to eliminate coin starvation and significantly reduce operator collection costs.
