In a groundbreaking project of Shell Deutschland GmbH, German Postbank AG and Wincor-Nixdorf, a comprehensive automation of all cash processes for the German network of Shell gas stations was achieved. The cost optimized cash replenishment processes in the project are controlled through the CPTO? solution by planfocus software GmbH.
At a total of 1300 Shell gas stations nationwide, customers can now use their stop at the gas station to “refuel cash” at the automated cash register of the gas station. The advantages for all parties are clear to see:
Because the project has put hight demands on the forecasting and optimization of the cash planning as well as CIT control, the choice was made to go with the market leading CPTO? solution by planfocus. The CPTO? software was deployed and is operated at V?B-ZVD Bank, a subsidiary of German Postbank which controls all cash replenishment processes throughout this project. The project was managed by NCR Germany as implementation partner throughout all stages.
The cashflow forecasting of the Shell-Wincor cash recyclers as well as the advanced CIT planning was able to reduce the costs for CIT stops to an absolute minimum. With this, ongoing costs of cash processes are kept in check, even in the light of changing customer behavior. And the complete CIT control and cash ordering processes are operated fully automatically. A key factor for the success was the experience of the planfocus cash management experts with recycling systems and process automation, coupled with the project experience of NCR Germany GmbH.
