Smart Safe Technology

80% of cash management equipment failure is due to poor maintenance

Lack of preventative maintenance is consistently one of the top 4 reasons for equipment failure.
Your business machinery gets dirty with use. Clean it to maintain efficient performance.

A Typical Smart Safe Unit



A smart safe improves cash management efficiency. This cash automation equipment offers note validation, cash tracking and accountability, reporting, and network connectivity (the “smart” part). It also reduces the time that employees and managers spend counting and sorting cash and increase the time they spend on improving their customers’ experiences.

What happens when this critical business technology stops working?

  • Lost revenue
  • Expensive repairs
  • Inconvenienced customers

KICTeam conducted a pilot study with 15 participating retailers and cleaned their smart safe bill acceptors/note validators, thermal receipt printers, and touchscreens. The results were very positive.

  • Bill validator note rejections were reduced from 23% to 4%
  • After the pilot, 100% of the retailers said they would recommend a preventative maintenance program

“This was a big eye opener to how dirty equipment gets in just one week. We normally don’t clean every week. We haven’t had an issues with our equipment since.”

“I believe taking the time once a week to do the cleaning could save a lot of downtime from equipment not functioning properly.”
