FireKing Awarded Patent for Centrally Controlled Safe Management System
FireKing Security Group recently announced that on April 7, 2015, the company was awarded a patent (U.S. Patent # 9,000,916) for its "Centrally Controlled Safe Management System." The patent relates to a safe management and transaction tracking system providing individual retail locations the ability to continuously exchange device health and cash transaction information with a central, cloud-based repository of data accessible by the entire company. This provides organizations enhanced capabilities to significantly improve their cash management and control processes. By having visibility across operations, companies are able to move from a reactive to a pro-active posture when dealing with out-of-compliance cash handling behavior.
The now patented Centrally Controlled Safe Management System allows any number of cash management devices, such as bill validating safes, to be networked and accessed over the internet. This cloud-based infrastructure allows FireKing to deliver the next generation of retail cash management solutions. Detailed information, including all transactions, alerts, access rules, firmware, software and configuration updates may be immediately exchanged between remote locations and a central group. In addition, retailers can remotely monitor the status of device components such as printers and bill validators. These capabilities offer retailers unparalleled reliability, control and visibility of their cash management activity.
"The award of this patent is further evidence of FireKing's commitment to investing in new technologies and offering the most innovative cash management systems on the market today," said Mark Essig, CEO of FKI Security Group.
According to John Rhoads, FireKing's senior vice president of product & channel development, "This technology enables our solutions to fundamentally change the landscape of retail cash management, the ability to utilize dynamic data management is the next evolution in our space."
