Case study – Cash Management to Improve Hygiene in the Food Retail Industry

Butcher shop Mėsos parduotuvė in Nemenčinė, Lithuania; uses Cash Management system that helps speed up the payment process, customer service, and overall hygiene in their butcher shop.


The biggest advantage for me since I own a butcher shop is that when using the StrongPoint UNICO CashGuard time that was previously spent on handling payments is now taken care of by the machine.

UNICO allows my employees to focus on proper packaging and delivering all our meat products to our clients and not on the cash. The Unico also helps us to provide faster better customer service and deliver higher quality products said Vitold Čaplinsk, owner of the shop.


Vitold Čaplinski, also says that they have a high focus on hygiene in his business, specifically for products that are sold fresh to the public and have to be manually managed by employees.


The fact that the employees no longer touch the money and the cashier can focus on the product packaging, makes employees more efficient in their day to day job and he can deliver a much more hygienic product.



So, how does the UNICO work?


The customer can take part in the payment process themselves by making the payments directly into the UNICO machine.


The client manually inserts all coins and bills to the machine and the employee doesn’t have to touch the cash in any instance, which makes for better shopping experience for all customers.


Our cash management systems furthermore help reduce the risk of spreading bacteria through cash handling as it reduces the contact between food and cash and prevents the spread of viruses and bacteria.



Vitold has now had UNICO implemented in his store for over 6 months. He is completely satisfied with the results and has raised his general hygiene standard in the shop even further.
