Cummins Allison Introduces New Self-Service Coin Counter That Builds Customer Traffic

Cummins Allison, the leading innovator and provider of coin, cheque and currency handling solutions, has introduced the Money Machine™ Self-Service Coin Counter for the Canadian market. The Money Machine is an essential service delivery tool for coin processing whether placed in retail or a banking environment. Once customers realize that this service is available, they generate repeat business for redeeming their jars, boxes and bags of coins.

Money Machine self-service coin counters are the fastest, high-capacity coin processors in the industry, providing precise coin counts – 99.995% accuracy – and 98% uptime. This translates into worry-free operations, less time managing coin processing and more time focused on customer needs.

“This really opens up possibilities in banking and retail markets,” says James Stearns, executive vice president, Cummins Allison. “Customizable options provide flexibility to suit your operational and promotional needs. Selecting the Money Machine for your coin-counting needs ensures your customers receive a level of service excellence above reproach.”

BMO Bank of Montreal has previously selected Cummins Allison self-service coin counting machines for use in many of its new branches, as well as in select remodeled branches across Canada. Cummins Allison high-speed self-service coin machines are able to count mixed Canadian coins at a rate of up to 4,000 per minute. After coins are deposited, the Cummins Allison coin redemption machine issues a receipt for the total, which can then be exchanged at the branch for cash or deposited into a bank account.

"The user experience is simplified, coin counting is fast and daily reconciliation is effortless," added Stearns. "Making it easy to provide a coin deposit service that pays for itself."

A large 15” colour touch-screen guides customers through the coin-counting process. Custom graphics, images, and multi-lingual text give you the flexibility needed to promote products and services as well as cater to a diverse audience.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
