Coinstar's full-service solution replaces equipment at PLS locations
BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Coinstar®, LLC, the global leader in self-service coin counting, today announced the planned installation of Coinstar® kiosks at approximately 200 PLS Financial Services Centers in 12 states. PLS selected Coinstar's industry-leading, turnkey service as its new coin counting solution.
"After a successful pilot, we are excited to roll out Coinstar kiosks at our centers," said Robert Fisher, senior vice president, support operations at PLS. "The Coinstar kiosks improved the customer experience with fast and highly accurate transactions. At PLS, we believe our customers deserve better and we are committed to providing financial solutions with transparent, convenient, respectful service."
Coinstar provides an easy to use, highly accurate coin-counting service that consumers trust. PLS customers can conveniently process their loose change at the kiosk and receive cash in minutes. Financial centers like PLS and other retailers value the Coinstar turnkey service because it takes the coin handling and machine trouble-shooting responsibility away from employees so that they can serve customers. In addition, Coinstar kiosks are networked to ensure optimal uptime and timely reports.
"PLS offers a wide variety of financial services that consumers depend on, and we're proud to be a partner that supports their commitment to make life easier for people," said Jim Gaherity, CEO of Coinstar.
Coinstar kiosks are now being installed in PLS centers and will be fully operational in approximately 200 locations by March.
