When I first started to work in my job as an in-store bookkeeper back in the 1980’s, every dollar had to be hand counted – twice! This was to ensure accuracy. The Jet Scan money counter is the best new technology for people that have large amounts of currency to count on a daily basis, cutting the time it takes to count the cash dramatically. I love it!
Even better, the Jet Scan in my office, is hooked up to the computer that has my bookkeeping software installed so that when I remove the money that has just been counted, it is automatically entered into my onscreen ‘ledger’. (It occurs to me that I should do a review on my bookkeeping software – watch for it!)
The Jet Scan has many money counting modes. The “Mixed” mode is the one I use most often. With this mode, I can count stacks of money with mixed denominations with no problem. We used to have to turn all the bills to face the same direction back in the day, but that is a thing of the past with the Jet Scan. Another useful mode, counts predetermined amounts out for me. If I put a $1, 000.00 worth of ten dollar bills in, it will count them into $100.00 stacks. The machine stops when it reaches the determined amount, then I remove the stack and rubber-band it, ready to pull the next stack out. This way I’m ready to provide the checkers in my store with the funds they need to operate their checkstands when they need additions. These are the two modes I use most often, though there are more.
If you have a business that has a large cash flow, this is definitely a tool you will want to consider. The one I use has been trouble free, and simply makes my day run that much more smoothly.
