Phil Stone, Managing Director at Cash Bases said: “A Queen’s Award is the highest honor that can be bestowed on a UK company. I am delighted that Cash Bases has received this internationally renowned and highly sought after award in recognition of its contribution to British enterprise. This award has been achieved through the sustained effort of our staff, who have continued to drive business forward by cultivating cutting-edge solutions for our customers.

The award winning innovation

The award is a consequence of Cash Bases’ dedication and determination to lead the field in ground breaking cash drawer technology and cash management solutions. Cash Bases drew on over 30 years of experience to develop the innovative SMARTtill™ Technology; which has been designed to combat the ever-present problem of cash loss and reduce the costs associated with managing the cash in a variety of retail and hospitality outlets.

The pioneering SMARTtill™ Solution is the first intelligent cash drawer in the market that automatically counts the contents of the drawer and reconciles the value of cash held to the sales made; enabling businesses to track every coin and note in their cash drawer.  It also generates alerts when there is not enough or, in some cases, too much cash in the till. Retailers that use the SMARTtill™ Solution are able to eliminate the need to regularly count the cash in the till and utilize the labor hours it saves to increase sales by providing a better customer experience. Other benefits includes the early identification of cash discrepancies; businesses now have a deterrent and tool with which to significantly reduce the cost of cash losses.

The new technology was first embraced by Tesco UK in a roll-out into its Tesco Extra and Superstore’s outlets and now many retailers in Europe are looking to adopt the solution.

The innovation has helped Cash Bases Limited to grow both financially and in staff numbers, and has led to high profile orders from Tesco. In August 2015 Cash Bases merged with APG Cash Drawer of Minneapolis Minnesota, USA. The new combined entity is taking theSMARTtill™ Solution into the United States’ retail markets.
