CONTROLTEK Works to Harmonize and Increase Knowledge with ICCOS

CONTROLTEK is a proud sponsor at the 2015 The Americas Cash Cycle Seminar (ICCOS), a premier global seminar for commercial cash management, distribution and circulation. Held in Fort Worth, Texas on December 7-10, ICCOS is a dynamic seminar that is connecting and educating the currency industry.

CONTROLTEK’s Director of Product Management, Kris Doane, will present, “What You Measure, You Can Improve,” Tuesday, December 8 at 11:20 a.m. This session will discuss how to utilize data to observe what is actually happening in your business and discover ways to improve critical processes.

Calling all Stakeholders in Cash Circulation

The ICCOS offers three distinct educational formats: general sessions, an exhibition area, and focused breakout meetings. Stakeholders can share their ideas, best practices, and cost-saving technologies. In the exhibition area, sponsors feature their latest technologies, and this is where CONTROLTEK shines.

But these changes are more marked today than in years past. As you may already know, CONTROLTEK is committed to bringing solutions to our evolving industry.

Patented Money Bags Heighten Security of Cash Transfers

CONTROLTEK’s currency bags are designed to thwart criminals

There was a time in the not too distant past when the methods and products used for transacting, storing and transporting cash were pretty much predictable – and often vulnerable. The problem is: Thieves love predictability and weak links in the chain of security.

But the bad guys now face a new obstacle. Improvements in the way currency is handled these days is due, in part, to advances in the design and quality of certain products used for the storing and transport of cash, which reduce the likelihood of tampering.

For example, patented TripLOK currency security bags, offered by security – products and loss -prevention solutions provider CONTROLTEK, improve the safety of mixed deposits and cash transfer shipments by featuring a unique triple-seal closure; four easy-to-read VideoVisual barcodes with large numbering for easy scanning by security cameras, and a high-visibility “void feature,” which appears if the secure nature of the bag has been compromised.

Meeting stringent Vault Process Certification (VPC) standards, the bags — developed by CONTROLTEK’s security experts in consultation with cash vault and loss-prevention experts across the United States – improve efficiency, while lowering vault expenses and the cost of all currency-handling applications.
Additional features include specially formulated thermochromic ink that turns red when subjected to heat, and sequential numbers, which are embedded in the closure for easy tracking.

CONTROLTEK Provides Protection of Cash Transfers, Assets and Inventories Through Its 3 Divisions

By focusing on customer needs and delivering product solutions within specific vertical markets, CONTROLTEK’s three divisions have become a single source for many companies in the United States and around the world. These customers are seeking products that protect inventory and assets, including cash deposits and currency.

In the retail industry, for example, guarding against inventory theft is a major concern. More than $13 billion worth of goods are stolen from retailers each year, according to the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention®.  Shoplifters steal from all types of stores, including: department stores, specialty shops, supermarkets, drug stores, discounters, music stores, convenience stores and thrift shops. In the banking industry, the use of currency security bags can help prevent tampering and ensure accountability of the parties involved in the transfer.

Many savvy retailers and financial institutions seeking innovative security solutions turn to CONTROLTEK to meet their tough standards of quality and reliability. Under its umbrella, CONTROLTEK’s products range from deposit bags and coin bags for banks and retailers, to security tags, detachersand Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS),RFID systems and software for retailers.

Modern Currency Bags Thwart Thieves, Help Banks and Retail Stores Guard Against Loss

New benchmark in handling mixed deposits and cash-transfer shipments

 Money deposit bags developed by security experts are a major component of loss prevention.

The patented TripLok® brand of currency security bags from CONTROLTEK ISP (Intelligent Security Packaging) in Cranford, N.J. has sophisticated anti-tampering and closure features.

ISP is one of three divisions of parent company CONTROLTEK, which developed its product lines through research and collaboration within the financial and retailing sectors. As a result, CONTROLTEK gained new perspectives on how to address the issue of loss prevention, seen through the lense of its customers, versus working in isolation on product development.

TripLok® security bags meet stringent Vault Process Certification (VPC) standards, which were developed by Controltek’s security experts in consultation with cash vault and loss-prevention professionals across the United States.
