Pros: Our cashiers have been using CEBS for over 6 years now. There had been timely revisions to the software, compliance has got stronger and reporting is outstanding.

We can fetch reports asked by accountant as well as regulatory bodies with ease. Whenever we need any changes to the system or even new reports, these are provided to us at earliest possible opportunity.

Our team is happy with the software and the monthly reconciliation service we receive.

Just to name a few, live rates, HMRC and OFAC sanctions list are updated regularly.

And before I forget, we got dedicated operations manager from CEBS so we speak to one person always; not to automated answer machines.

Cons: Reports can be categorised, I cannot think of anything else as of now.

Overall: We are using CEBS for our daily currency accounting, storing customer information and generating reports.

CEBS takes care of:

1. Setting up margins

2. Scanning HMRC, EU, UN, OFAC sanctions list

3. Storing customer ids

and through many more ways, it helps us comply with the regulatory bodies.

Pros: I like the user-friendliness of this software that allows us to perform daily transactions very efficiently. Particularly, I like the easy ability to start and complete transactions in a very timely and simple manner, and the ability to search, delete, and view transactions with ease. I also like the ability to customise aspects of the system such as setting limits and AML requirements for different transaction sizes, for business safety.

Cons: The time-out feature can be worked on and improved. This is something that is being worked on for us. The system times out when in the middle of processing transactions, resulting in having to log in again and start the transaction from the beginning.

Overall: The overall experience is a very positive one. It meets all the main needs our business has in order to have smooth and efficient transaction flows as well as producing internal reports and calculations.

Pros: We have been using the Currency Exchange Software for more than 3 years now. We are using the software for everyday transactions. Calculates profit against each selling transaction and reporting is one of the best.

The best part is support, rate updates are hourly, Sanctions list updates every couple of weeks. We feel secure with the software.

Cons: Cannot think of any. The software is quite stable. There may be temporary hiccup only if any dependency is not working. For example, they changed the mid market rate provider feed last year, so it took few hours to restore normal service.

Overall: Overall experience with CEBS is great. We get help with almost everything, MLR renewals, NCA registration, Policy and Procedures documents. Support also includes Employee training.

Pros: Easy to use and understand. Easy to set up. Very handy to have a demo version to start with. Fantastic customer service. New features were added promptly upon request. Easy to personalise receipts, rates screen etc.

Another useful feature is the automated check for sactions, PEP's against multiple lists.

Cons: Some initial set up issues. These were fixed by the owner and developers within the timeframe communicated.

Overall: CEBS provided the essential POS software we needed to start operating. Other, larger providers were either not interested in us small fish SME's, or too pricy. CEBS is very cost efficient and fits very well in the startup setup we are used to. We notice that CEBS is updated frequently with extra functionalities, each version has added very useful extra functionalities.

Pros: It does what we bought it for. Our accountant is happy with the reports. And even the regulatory bodies during their audits they approved the software to be satisfactory. The

My cashiers are using it for over 5 years now and never complained.

The best part is we have one point of contact and he is available during our working hours on phone or on WhatsApp.

Cons: The older version which was 3 years back troubled us for once or twice; but never had an issue since the upgrade to web version.

Overall: We are very satisfied with the service we receive and intend to continue with CEBS for near future.

Pros: It is very user friendly, simple to use and provides all the information in a detailed format. The reports generated are easily comprehensible by the accountants. This software was also approved by the HMRC, on their recent visit to our premises. They were satisfied by all the reports it produced and the updated compliance check that the software uses.

Cons: Logs out quickly. Apart from this, there is nothing to complain about the software.

Overall: Excellent and quick customer service. Very user friendly and updated software.

Pros: Entering transaction buy/sell is very easy. Stock take and end of day reports are perfect. Web based so there was no installation required. The best part is Service. Usually we don't get any issues, but if we have any or if we need system support, it takes just one phone call for getting help and the issue is resolved. It manages my expenses too.

Cons: This is rare but, if we have no internet then we are unable to access the system. Their is local system which can be installed, but I don't like installation.

Overall: I have been using the system for 4 years and I can definitely recommend it to all the currency service businesses.

Pros: Easy to Use, reliable

CEBS is straight forward, transactions entry and View stock is easy to operate. Reporting is strong. Transactions and shift close reports are printed daily. Updates for the software are done regularly.

Cons: Easy to Use, reliable

The only issue we can think of is offline connectivity. CEBS is online and browser based but being in London the internet never goes down. So I cannot think of cons.

Overall: It's very simple to use, it updates exchange rates every day, service is upto the standard.
