Balance Innovations(R) Partners With Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions to 
Integrate Self-Checkout Software 
LENEXA, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 10/16/13 --  Balance Innovations has
joined Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions as a Together Commerce
Alliance Innovation Partner to integrate Balance Innovations'
vbScout(TM) self-checkout management software with Toshiba CHEC
software for Toshiba self-checkout units. The integrated software
will be available in Q1 2014. 
The Toshiba award-winning self-checkout solution is built to support
high-volume retail environments with speed and ease, incorporating
human factors design and intuitive function with architecture that
enables high availability and flexibility for customers. The
integration provides real-time access to the cash in and cash out
data for each transaction from the Toshiba unit. This allows vbScout
to alert bookkeepers to errors (such as jams) and provide
notification when unit dispensers are low or acceptors are nearly
full. This combination enables retailers to reduce the frequency of
balancing the terminals to as little as once a week. When balancing
does occur, vbScout eliminates manual errors by guiding bookkeepers
through a step-by-step process of balancing and rebuilding each
The solution eliminates downtime for the customer caused by
out-of-cash conditions or full acceptors. In addition, cash is
exposed to potential loss less often because units are able to remain
locked throughout the day. 
"Balance Innovations is a valued partner," said John Gaydac,
executive vice president, global sales & professional services,
Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions. "Integrating our solutions is a
great benefit to our mutual customers and allows them to realize even
more value from their investment in self-checkout technology." 
"This is a great partnership that will give Toshiba self-checkout
users the best of two technologies," said Steve Rempel, president and
CEO for Balance Innovations. "The integration will provide users with
the information needed to make the most efficient use of their
self-checkout units and keep them available for their customers at
all times."
