Reviewing the Process for a Main Banker at Shift Change
The pandemic has taught businesses many lessons, but one key lesson is that being efficient, in all areas of the casino operation, is imperative. As the labor pool decreased and hours of operations changed, the ability to be a successful casino operator became more of a challenge.
When was the last time you spent time with the main bankers at shift change, a cashier ending their shift or revenue audit? The back of the house, support functions, seem to be the last to receive the technology to improve operations and mitigate risks.
Let’s take the process for a main banker at shift change.
They must count down the funds in the vault, some with the currency counter and some manually, writing the counts on a form and using the 10-key to add it up. They get to the end and they are off by $125. They are reviewing all the ins and outs, plus the shift reconciliation count, and after spending time researching they find a transposed number. With automation, this number would have been verified and a variance immediately issued. This is just one example of inefficiencies within cash operations. If this happens twice a week, it is a minimum of 124 hours of inefficiencies for one manual process.
In some instances, the paperwork is force balanced by a cashier who just wants to get off after a long shift. The paperwork errors are not found until revenue audit starts going through the paperwork the next day, so now the inefficiencies have impacted the cashier and auditor. With automation, the cashier is not able to force balance and must address the variance with the supervisor at countdown.
Manual processes within cash operations slow the audit processes, which impairs the ability to be a successful casino operator. Casino management is not able to make informed business decisions without an accurate account of cash position and a clean revenue audit.
