Homebase has chosen Tellermate to provide and manage cash systems for its 270 UK stores.
The Tellermate solution enters data on 20 cash and non-cash items, including cheques, gift vouchers and debit and credit card receipts, into Homebase's STAR back-office system.This task was previously completed manually by Homebase cash managers in each store.
The company estimates that the system saves its staff 45 minutes a day, adding up to a total saving of£400,000 a year.
Homebase retail trading and administration manager Martin Reeves said: 'We recognised very quickly that this was an area of our business where we could improve our operations, both in-store and at head office. Tellermate have helped us to implement radical improvements and savings.'
