MEI presented its wide range of developments at recent G2E exhibition in Las Vegas.
Listed below are some ideas MEI presented with the aim to generate additional discussion:
•EASITRAX Soft Count: Today, after MEI has installed EASITRAX in more than 50 properties and 70,000 games, it is unusual not to see a casino open with an asset management system that ties slot performance to the soft count room. This trend is raised expectations for bill acceptor functionality.
•Supplier to cash management partner. Note acceptors used to be known as a component that is dropped into a host machine (slot machine, kiosk, self-checkout machine, etc.). Now, it is more than a note acceptor as it provides features that assist operators in managing their cash flow. The expense associated with effectively managing cash can have a dramatic impact on the bottom line. MEI has produced a series of products – from RFID-based EASITRAX to a wide range of cashboxes – to help improve efficiencies in cash handling.
•The evolving role of bill validators in Gaming. The importance of bill validators has continued to rise. Subsequent improvements in acceptance rates, security and jam performance have illustrated what a dramatic impact these peripheral devices have on revenue. Today, the information collected in bill validators is being used to improve the drop process, increase asset efficiency and improve maintenance practices. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
•Bill acceptors role in the emergence of VLT networks. The importance of VLT networks continues to grow. The challenge of managing a diversified fleet of games in widespread geographies has operators looking for efficiencies.
•Increasing operator maintenance efficiencies. All operators are concerned about uptime and operational costs. A bill validator can have a dramatic impact on machine uptime. Specifying the right product, and adhering to the right preventive maintenance practices, will improve uptime and reduce costs.
•The evolution of note acceptors. Technology is at the core of all MEI products. To make a great product even better, MEI has evolved CASHFLOW SC into its next generation product: SC Advance. Now faster and more secure than ever before, operators can implement this new technology with minimal investment.
•The importance of note recycling. The Gaming industry utilizes a wide variety of equipment to improve the player experience. As a result, there is more demand than ever on new technology. MEI is developing a broad recycling portfolio, offering numerous denominations, to serve equipment from bill breakers to AWP machines – helping to improve the player experience and eliminate hopper starvation when coins are used.
