Appreciating Hospital Gift Shop Volunteers

April 16th, 2015 at 3:38 pm

Hospital gift shop managers know how important their volunteers are to keeping the shop running smoothly every day. We hear from our healthcare customers about the great benefits of volunteers along with the challenges of ensuring that everyone is properly trained on using the point of sale terminals. Volunteers typically take weekly or monthly shifts, which means a simple, easy to learn POS system is ideal. We created Quickcharge POS with those volunteers in mind! With technology always changing, we wanted to make sure our point of sale solution remained accessible to volunteers and regular employees alike.   Managers can configure the system to make the buttons larger and easier […]

Survey Shows ATM Fees on the Rise

January 27th, 2015 at 2:39 pm

When Bankrate published their annual Checking Survey in 2014, it provided some surprising reports of the high rates for ATM fees and overdraft fees. We know fees can add up quickly, and that’s why we keep transaction fees out of our Quickcharge software. Bankrate’s survey shows that, on average, the fee banks are charging non-customers rose to $2.77 this year, and the average fee charged from a customer’s bank for using another bank’s ATM rose to $1.58. Combine those two fees and consumers are looking at an average cost of $4.35 every time they choose an out-of-network ATM for cash withdrawal. That’s a huge financial hit! What can you do to […]

A Recent Study Investigates How Much Cash Americans Carry

June 4th, 2014 at 9:55 am

Short on cash? You may not be the only one. A recent Bankrate study reveals that Americans aren’t carrying much in the way of paper money. With 40% of people carrying $20 or less in in cash, Bankrate’s survey suggests the good old greenback – the traditional currency for many Americans – no longer dominates like it used to. The survey also found that women generally tend to have less on hand than men, with 77% of women and 61% of men reporting that they carry $50 or less in cash on a daily basis. “If we move to a truly cashless society, it won’t be much of an adjustment […]

A recent Wall Street Journal article about “Why You Shouldn’t Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,” reveals some grimy details that may leave people thinking twice before paying with cash anytime soon. According to the story, researchers of New York University’s Dirty Money Project found more than 3,000 different types of bacteria living on cash – many times more than in previous studies that examined samples under a microscope. NYU’s Dirty Money Project collected 80 one dollar bills from a Manhattan bank. They found nearly 1.2 billion DNA segments, and believe it or not, only about half of that was human DNA. Researchers also found DNA from dogs, horses […]

Cash is Dirty: Why Cashless is Healthier

April 2nd, 2013 at 2:59 pm

Cash is dirty. That won’t come as a surprise to anyone; we all know it. Just thinking about how much a bill or coin has been circulated and what it’s come in contact with is enough to make you panic, even if you don’t generally think of yourself as a germaphobe. A 2002 study found that 94 percent of the bills tested were contaminated with bacteria. Most of those bacteria are harmless, but 7 percent of the bills carried dangerous pathogens like Staphylococcus aureus and E. coli. Money can be a rather hospitable environment for these pathogens, too: on most surfaces viruses and bacteria live for around 48 hours, but […]
