Gregor Lehnert Group (UGL) supports Wincor Nixdorf's Cash Cycle Management concept

(PresseBox) (Paderborn, ) Wincor Nixdorf and the Gregor Lehnert Group (UGL) have agreed to expand their ongoing cooperation and have signed a partnership agreement aimed at making cash processes at banks and retail companies more efficient. As part of Wincor Nixdorf's cash-in-transit (CIT) partnership model, the BS-Beck Security Service, a member company of UGL, will provide banks and retail companies in the Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate regions of Germany with services for cash management and Cash Cycle Management Solutions (CCMS).

A closed cash cycle in banks and retail stores delivers economic benefits to everyone involved in the cash cycle. Wincor Nixdorf has developed an appropriate solution based on CINEO technology, enabling the use of standardized cash cassettes that can be exchanged between all CINEO systems. To ensure that optimal cash levels are available, Wincor Nixdorf relies on a forecasting and cash inventory optimization process for ordering cash, e.g. from the German Central Bank, in compliance with the mandatory CashEDI procedure introduced in January 2013.

The focus for all process steps and interfaces will be on ensuring high levels of quality and optimization to support an efficient and transparent cash supply chain. For example, BS-Beck Security Services can view all current and future cash supply requests via the clearly defined and existing interface to the Wincor Nixdorf eServices platform. The CIT services provider can access the cash data without any media discontinuity, and is able to exchange cash cassettes between cash dispensers, cash recycling systems and automatic teller safes at banks. Added to this is the further handling and counting of the cash from the cassettes in the banks' and retail companies' own cash centers.

This solution gives retail companies even greater transparency with regard to the cash cycle, and they benefit from the vastly improved cash management processes.

"Through our partnership with Wincor Nixdorf, we can help as a CIT services provider to significantly improve cash management for banks and retailers. Our customers see this as clear added value," says Gregor Lehnert, owner and managing director of UGL.

Cooperation among all those involved in the cash cycle is the prerequisite for reducing transport risks and high amounts of cash, as well as increasing the recycling quota in business enterprises as demanded by the German Central Bank. Consulting, hardware, software and services must interact seamlessly and be implemented by dedicated service providers.

"With our CIT partnership model, we offer customers an intelligent end-to-end solution for cash handling without any media discontinuity between the services, and without costly follow-up implementation effort. As a result, our customers can rely on processes that create a high degree of transparency, maximum security and automated standards, and continuously generate savings potential," says Ralf Koritzius, responsible for service business at Wincor Nixdorf in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
