Now, obviously there’s some variation here. A bank is going to handle a lot more money than a church, for instance, but the church doesn’t have an army of people available to count it. Many churches are run by just a pastor, or a pastor with a couple of volunteers who help out once or twice a week. Spending half a morning counting stacks of $1 bills is a poor use of your resources.
When you think of a cash counting machine, the first thing that comes to mind is probably your local bank. This makes sense, after all. Banks are literally in the business of handling money, so it’s only logical for them to automate a part of the process.
