Having more than one till is crucial for a business in terms of speed and security. Having one till per employee is even better because they will be able to work at maximum speed. They will also have maximum security as they will all be held responsible on their own till and it will minimize the possibility of theft by the employee. Instead, if more than one person are working on one till, someone may steal and nobody will know who it was.
- If an employee knows the system they can bypass the internal checks.
- If more than one person is working on a till and money comes up missing then you can’t say who did it directly.
- You can give everyone their own till if they are on one computer.
“In such a situation an employee with knowledge of the system is sometimes able to bypass the internal checks with disastrous results to the business.”
