Cash Collection

Cash is collected either into a cash validating device or barcoded bag and is logged into the FirstCount software system. Cash orders are placed via a mobile app or the management portal.


FirstCount captures cash deposit data and makes it visible across the entire life cycle and supply chain, while controlling service and logistic activities.


Cash lifecycle, value and real-time status can be tracked through the FirstCount portal and made available to all participating entities. Integration with legacy systems provides for consolidation of data into a single dashboard.
