Financial institutions can enhance profitability by more accurately managing the currency supply chain with cash forecasting methods from Fiserv.
For financial institutions, providing an adequate supply of currency to meet customer needs is a continual challenge. Running out of cash at an ATM or other location means reduced revenue from lost surcharge fees and increased expenses due to emergency currency deliveries. But overstocking currency means banks can't invest this non-earning asset to generate interest income. Fiserv can help your financial institution manage the currency supply chain and accurately forecast requirements for each currency location.
Cash forecasting and optimization solutions from Fiserv enable financial institutions to anticipate the needs of traditional currency points such as ATMs, branches and vaults as well as self-service devices such as in-branch currency dispensing units and remote cash capture machines. In addition, the Fiserv solutions allow you to optimize your entire currency supply chain, which can result in currency inventory reductions of 20 to 40 percent.
The comprehensive suite of cash forecasting and optimization products include:
- Integrated Currency Manager™ for supplying, managing and transporting currency across multiple cash points and locations
- Performance View™ for real-time visibility into the costs and performance drivers of your enterprise supply chain
- Reservelink® for transforming previously idle funds into an interest-earning asset for your organization
