Brink’s Complete: The innovative way to digitize cash for businesses.

The solution called Brink’s Complete allows the installation of an intelligent box in the back of the customer’s premises to deposit the cash, which is then withdrawn by the company’s transport service.

With the purpose of digitizing the cash management of companies with low collection per branch or store, Brink’s developed an innovative solution called Brink’s Complete that seeks to be an aid for cash management in an easy, fast and safe way.

Specifically, this solution consists of depositing the money collected during the day in a smart box enabled in the store, which is later deposited in the bank account of the company or business, digitizing in less than 24 hours the cash from the sales of the day.
For this process, it is necessary to deposit the money in the smart box that has a barcode reader and enter the amount of cash deposited in an envelope using the 24Seven application, developed by Brink’s. This allows you to manage the money deposited and digitized in the smart box from any computer or smartphone 24 hours a day.

Although this solution is new in Chile, it has been used in the northern hemisphere for more than a year as a way to easily and cheaply automate cash management. “In other countries we have had very good results, especially with retail businesses that needed a solution to easily, quickly and securely digitize the money collected before the end of the day.”

Another advantage of Brink’s Complete is that it is not only a solution to digitize what is collected, but it also enables the acceleration of liquidity since many businesses will have the money in their accounts faster, reducing the risk of having to deposit it .

This allows customers to focus more time on business management, thanks to this “intelligent box” that can be installed in the same company or business, so the deposit can be made without leaving the store since Brink’s takes care of it. of his retirement.

“We are sure that this solution developed by Brink’s for commerce and medium and small businesses will be a contribution in Chile since it is not only a solution that will help manage cash, but also contributes to streamline business management and that it eliminates the risk of the employees since they will no longer have to go out to make deposits to the Bank”.
