Cash handling often involves many cumbersome processes, but using a money counter can significantly improve efficiency and reduce errors. This article will detail these cash handling processes and explain how money counters can play a role.

Cash Handling Processes and the Role of Money Counters

Below are the main cash handling processes and how money counters can simplify them:
