Cashmaster One FAQs
Put simply, a money counter is a device that is often used in cash-handling businesses (so pretty much most!). Although various options on the market all perform differently, the core aim of a money counter is to count money accurately, reliably, and quickly. Some are better than others, however. Our devices place significant importance on intelligent software, integration capabilities and device longevity.
Businesses, particularly those with multiple locations and a large number of employees, tend to opt for money counters as opposed to manual cash-counting methods. They do so because manual cash counting can result in errors, a large amount of time spent away from customers and internal loss issues such as staff theft. With a Cashmaster money counter, businesses can be confident in our devices’ abilities to not only reduce, but almost completely remove these issues from the daily operations of their businesses.
Yes - absolutely! Cashmaster money counters count both notes and coins. They do so using ‘count-by-weight’ technology, whereby our devices which are configured by our specialist engineers are fine-tuned to detect the weight of each denomination, and also recognise the slightest difference in between each banknote and coin. The outcome? Industry-leading accuracy across your register counts!
Count-by-weight technology is the technology used by our devices to detect the weight of each note and coin denomination across different currencies. Simply put, our devices recognise the weight of each singular note and coin so you can be confident in our devices’ ability to instantly count the total value and quantity of each. New currencies and bank notes are released frequently of course, which is where our highly skilled product engineers and technical team comes in!
We believe this is what makes us the most accurate and reliable count-by-weight money counter on the market, and our robust and reliable product design.

In one of our recent blog pieces, we discuss the benefits that a Cashmaster money counter can have when combatting cash loss within a business. Here are just a few of the different ways that a Cashmaster can help:
- Capture traceability information, such as Cashier/Manager and Register IDs associated with every count
- Reduce the time required to complete counting tasks, whilst allowing them to be carried out more frequently, thus enabling robust controls to be put in place for minimal overhead/resource
- Eliminate errors in records and data entry, preventing clerical errors and ensuring more time to focus on real losses
- Increase accessibility of cash count and audit data, reducing the time required to investigate discrepancies
- Allow tracking of compliance with company cash counting procedures
- Standardise cash-counting activities
- Promote accountability of staff
