A money counter is a machine that counts money. How do they work? You take a pile notes and place them within the machine and the machine will sort through each note and count them. It will display on screen the total amount in the currency selected. Many businesses use money counters for many reasons, here is a look at the top five advantages of money counters and money counting machines.

1. Money Counters save You Time

One of the major reasons that businesses and companies use money counters is because of the amount of time it saves them. Counting notes by hand is time consuming and is usually carried out two or three times to make sure the numbers are correct to correct any human error. A money counter is 100% correct every time and they take only a few seconds to count a hundred notes. The time they save from using a money counter can be put to better use within the business.

2. Money Counters are more accurate than Humans

The second major advantage to using a money counter is how much more accurate they are compared to a human. When the money counting machine counts a wad of notes and displays the amount on screen you do not need to count it yourself manually to check and you do not need to have the machine count it twice, it’ll be right the first time it works.

3. Money Counters can count in Different Currencies

Money counters are very versatile in that if you deal with many different currencies it can count them all, for example it can count a pile of pound notes, then a pile of dollar notes, and then a pile of Euros. The business does not need to have three sets of machines to accommodate the different currencies they need to count one money counting machine can do all this for them.

4. Clear LCD Displays

The machine uses a LCD display with a back light so that the total amount of the notes is shown brightly and is easy to see. No hassle, no fuss!

5. Money Counters act as a Security Measure

Another trick some money counting machines can perform is checking for fake notes. The counting and counterfeit detecting machines scan each note using the Ultraviolet Reflection, Magnetic Thread and Infrared Spectrum Analysis and will stop if it encounters a suspect note.
