      Data-driven insights to put you in control of your cash cycle.
      Make evidence-based decisions for a better-managed, more efficient and more cost-effective cash cycle.

      Tap into a wealth of aggregated data. 

      DLR Analytics™ is the leading cash cycle analytics service, giving central banks tools to benchmark their cash cycle performance, simplify monthly reporting and make transparent, evidence-based decisions about their cash cycle.

      DLR Analytics™ is simple to use, with most central banks already collecting the required data, often publishing  online. The DLR Analytics™ team works with central banks to provide the most commonly used mathematical models for banknote demand forecasting and aspects of banknote lifetime analysis. This means that users of DLR Analytics™ can focus on the outcome of analysis instead of which mathematical tool is best for their needs.

      Advanced DLR Analytics™ is the next generation of cash cycle analytics. With advanced forecasting tools and greater visibility of aggregated and anonymous data it is simpler than ever for central banks to understand their cash cycle in the context of regional and global trends and norms.

      “DLR Analytics provides central banks with an invaluable way of forecasting the future demand for cash - an issue ever-more prevalent, given the rise of digital payments. The software proves substantial value can be taken from simpler aggregated data, reducing the costs for central banks investigating its cash's lifecycle“.

      Analytics-1 (1)
      Banknote Lifetime Analysis

      Using steady state mathematical models and frequency distribution curves the DLR Analytics™ service enables banknote lifetimes to be calculated and trends related to banknote lifetime to be monitored. This is ideally suited for measuring the impact of a change in banknote specification, sorters or central bank policy.

      Banknote Demand Forecasting
      Using a range of forecasting tools most commonly used by central banks (based on monthly and annual data), banknote forecasts are generated and evaluated for the value and volume of cash in circulation, by banknote denomination. Advanced DLR Analytics™ users can easily translate this forecast into banknote demand and stock forecasts, using scenario modelling tools that enable replacement rates to be fine-tuned.

      Global and Regional Trend Analysis

      Data is aggregated and anonymsied, meaning that central banks can benchmark their banknote lifetimes and other cash cycle metrics against regional and global norms. Global cash cycle trends are available for those who contribute their DLR Analytics™ data to pooled data and the team periodically produce anonymized case studies.

      D-Metric™ and Denominational Structure Assessments

      Based on an empirical tool, first developed in the 1980s and since used with tens of central banks, the D-Metric™ assessment is used to highlight how similar a denominational structure is relative to the needs of a country, based on regional and global normal. Forecasting tools can also be applied to indicate the likely impact of e.g. coining a denomination or introducing a new high value banknote on the banknote demand.
