The National Convenience Show returns to the NEC, Birmingham, 30th March - 1st April 2020, and Loomis will be there to showcase a range of cash management solutions designed to meet the needs of this vibrant sector.
More than 6000 convenience professionals, from forecourts to co-ops, symbol groups to independent, will visit - on the lookout for innovations and ways to enhance their business in a market which is worth some £47bn.
Central to the Loomis offering on Stand C48 will be the SafePoint range - which delivers unique end-to-end back office cash management solutions, with options which can be tailored to the size of business and number of operatives.
SafePoint intelligent safe solutions are graded smart safes which preclude on-site access, to ensure that once in the safe, cash is inaccessible - with obvious appeal for a sector which still takes up to 76% of payments for transactions in cash*.
With average transactions worth £7.03, it’s inevitable that a lot of cash will change hands, so security and accuracy are key concerns for convenience retailers.
Sitting alongside SafePoint 'smart safes' is a range of unique technologies which include intelligent note and coin readers, automated banking, and services which include cash in transit collection (CIT) and cash processing.
For businesses with a high level of cash transactions, security and prevention of crime and protecting staff and premises are perennial considerations so it’s interesting to note that The National Convenience Show will zoom in on the subject with a seminar devoted to 'Stopping the c-store crime wave' which will take place on 1st April 2020 at 13.30pm.
SafePoint cash management solutions can certainly help, and the Loomis Professional Services team will be on hand to discuss what will work best for businesses of all sizes - ensuring that cash retailing is safer, effective and cost-effective, allowing business owners more time to focus on developing the business.
And just to make it even more interesting, Loomis plans to discuss an exciting new product and service with visitors to the stand; the company has recently entered into a partnership with the developers of Sonect, a digital cash solution which can, in effect, enable shops to function as a ‘virtual ATM’ and make cash withdrawal available in many more locations than currently. Benefits include a location-based on-demand cash service and simplification of instore cash management.
