Last week, members of CMSPI’s cash team attended the 2018 Secure Cash and Transport Association (SCTA) Conference in Chicago, Illinois.

The theme of this year’s event was “State of Change”, with guest speakers from across the industry discussing trends and opportunities for improving services and visibility for cash management such as implementing GS1 standards and the latest technological advances with suppliers.

On the first day of the event, topics ranged from applications of blockchain to the implications of the legal cannabis industry on armored transport companies. Members of The Fed’s Cash Product Office presented their study on cash usage in the U.S., suppliers showcased the innovations to improve safety and accountability among armored transport carriers and their employees and there were open discussions on the regulation requirements for all members within the industry.

Day two focused on the security element within the cash industry – a topic of great importance to all members to ensure the safety of armored transport carriers and their merchant partners alike. From highlighting the trends in crimes and attacks, to the areas that need particular attention, there were many factors to take away for further consideration.

At CMSPI we always encourage events that facilitate discussions among all parties within the cash management industry – from merchants to vendors throughout the supply chain!
