Sentinel - OverviewApplications

For more than a quarter century, Tidel has been the recognized leader in the manufacture of retail cash security systems. With over 100,000 Timed Access Cash Controllers (TACCs) shipped, major retailers throughout the world have turned to Tidel to provide solutions to their cash handling needs.

Sentinel™, Tidel’s leading-edge cash management system, builds on TACC’s established legacy as a robbery deterrent. Sentinel has been designed to further reduce the risk of internal theft, streamline in-store management time, and create greater efficiencies in store operations, thereby improving overall customer service.

Sentinel was designed around a scalable software architecture written in Windows CE. The software’s modular design allows for custom applications and reports and can be expanded to accommodate peripherals such as bill validators and cash recycling products.
