Cash Register Services announced the integration of VALID Systems’ state-of-the-art check cashing technology into its register system that is anchored by VALID’s groundbreaking decisioning and identification platform. CRS joins major players in banking and financial services in VALID’s growing network of customers and partners.
CRS has been piloting in 100 stores and will begin offering the system to its thousands of customers immediately. This new integrated approach is easier and faster for customers and clerks to use, and it will allow service to a wider range of customers in a safe and secure manner, representing a major step forward in retail check cashing.
The new system integrates existing hardware alongside new technologies. The verification and approval process is fully automated and takes less than 2 seconds with the entire transaction being under 1 minute.
By bringing industry leaders together to optimize this program, VALID has once again demonstrated its capacity to advance financial services. It is this flexibility and strategic vision, as much as its groundbreaking technology, that has led to the success of the program. VALID believes CRS’s program is a strong model for the industry, providing consumers with immediate access to cash and the convenience of one-stop shopping.
