tephan Rosseneu, Western European Sales Manager, based in the company's Bergamo office, is co-ordinating Money Controls' participation at Enada and is keen to stress the company's local credentials: “We have operated in Italy for over 20 years via our distributor, Maggi Coniature, and are already recognised for our innovative products and solutions. We now have our own office and warehouse here, enabling us to deliver the best possible customer response, with local availability of equipment. In addition, our technical capability has been strengthened with the appointment of Davide Spada, our new sales engineer, who has extensive technical knowledge and experience of the coin slot market.
“As well as our enhanced sales and technical support in Italy, we also have products developed specifically for the Italian market. And it is our Comma6A solutions to OEMs, operators, providers and distributors that are our main focus at Enada, with the highlight being our Combi Hopper system.”
Developed to meet the requirements of the Italian AWP market, the Combi Hopper system features a low float, high security and fast payout of 2, 1 and 50c euro coins from just two hoppers, with no hunting for coins. Launched two years ago, it has already been integrated into machines by major software houses in Italy. It is now available with a high-capacity bowl.
Money Controls' stand (024, Pad 3) features the company's full range of hoppers for the Italian market. Also on display are PayLink, their USB integration module, the Sr5i and SR3 coin acceptors, and the Ardac Elite and Lumina bill validators, for the casino and amusement markets, respectively.
Rosseneu hopes that casino operators and slot managers will take the opportunity to see Ardac Elite in action: “Casinos in several countries, including Italy, have retrofitted Ardac Elite and, as a result, are enjoying increased slot revenues, as well as extending the life of their machines. We can retrofit Ardac Elite to virtually any machine, in any casino; if you visit our stand, you'll see how quick and easy retrofitting is.”
