IKEA is the iconic furniture and household wares retailer founded in Sweden in 1943. Since then, it has grown into a multinational group of companies that designs and sells put-it-together-yourself furniture and home accessories. As of January 2008, it is the world's largest furniture retailer. It has about 350 stores in 42 countries and EUR 30 billion in sales in 2013.
Jean Marie Abellan is the Business Navigator and Operations Manager at IKEA Paris Nord II – a store with about 1.8 million customers per year and 28 manned checkouts in the store.
The store chose CashGuard in 2007. In 2013, they chose CashGuard’s sealed cash management solution Presidio to secure the cash flow, avoid manual handling of cash and to minimize the risk of robberies.
