Garda World Security Corporation (TSX: GW) (Garda), one of the most trusted consulting, investigation and security firms in the world, and Radiant Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: RADS), a leading provider of innovative technology to the global retail and hospitality industries, introduced the newest version of CashLINK™ featuring complete, standards-based integration with Radiant’s Point of Sale (POS) for the petroleum and convenience retail industry.
Radiant's solid-state touch screen POS hardware terminals combined with Garda’s fully integrated transaction-to-bank cash management system completes the total automation of the retail sales process, further enhancing the accuracy and productivity of retail personnel. CashLINK enables store clerks to initiate deposits from the POS to the smart safe and receive confirmation of the deposit at the POS, greatly reducing the time needed to reconcile deposits with no need to manually enter information from printed reports.
“Closing the loop between POS and smart safe systems has been a much sought after feature throughout the retailing industry and our integration with Radiant Systems now brings this standards-based capability to the market for the first time,” said Richard Drutman, President of Garda’s Cash Logistics group. “Our companies share many customers and, for them, this represents the culmination of the automation process and a significant advance in streamlining operations.”
“In today’s highly competitive retailing operations, eliminating steps in the cash management process enables workers to be more productive and focused on customer service rather than accounting chores,” said Jimmy Frangis, vice president for the petroleum and convenience retail division of Radiant Systems. “Combining our offerings makes achieving that goal easier than ever before.”
