Reliable coin sorting solution for the Port of Dover

Volumatic : 21 December, 2009  (Application Story)
G4S Maritime takes delivery of Volumatic TruSort system for coin sorting for handling cash from car park ticket machines at the Port of Dover in the UK
Reliable coin sorting solution for the Port of Dover
Volumatic has supplied G4S Maritime, a supplier of international ship and port facility security services, with its TruSort coin sorting machine at Port of Dover. Port of Dover has 15 car parking ticket machines that accept assorted coins and must be emptied and counted at least once a week.

Recently G4S decided to sort the coins in-house and they contacted Volumatic for a low cost, simple to operate and reliable machine that did not occupy a large amount of space when not in use.

"Each week's collection was being counted by hand and it soon became clear that we needed to obtain a suitable machine to assist with the process. It took 2 people around 3-4 hours over 2 days to count a single collection by hand, which in terms of productivity was unacceptable," Steven Taylor MD - G4S Maritime commented.

Volumatic offered a 2 week trial with coin sorting machine TruSort to see if it would be suitable. TruSort is fully automated and able to count and sort 216 coins per minute. It sorts coins into individual hoppers and also into the correct denomination that the bank requires for each bag.

"This saved us a lot of time. From the assorted coin stage to paying in at the Bank can now be accomplished in less than a day." Steven said, "I have to say that our experience with Volumatic and its products has been superb. The machine provided meets all of our requirements at around a tenth of the cost of any of the other equipment we considered. It is refreshing to find a company that listens to what the customer needs, rather than try to push products from their warehouse and the level of attention and service at every stage has been nothing short of exemplary."

Volumatic, a UK based company, has a thirty year history and is a leading supplier of cash handling equipment to the retail, leisure and banking industries.
