he handling, counting and reconciliation of cash has always been a laborious, very time consuming and high risk undertaking. The gaming industry is no exception and we have all seen images of cash pouring out of cash boxes as they are emptied out onto counting tables.
Those days may be gone with the introduction of I-DEPSYS (Intelligent Deposit System). A gaming table integrated device with multiple note and multiple denomination acceptance which counts and deposits any money handed over at the tables into a sealed bank / CIT (Cash in Transit) approved pouch.
Any and all monies deposited can be reconciled through a bespoke back office system which can stand alone or be integrated with existing casino management reporting software. This same software offers a full audit trail of all I-DEPSYS units and shows in real time the cash/drop position of each unit/table (ie how much cash is in each table).
Andrew Beddoe CEO of Intelligent Deposit Systems / I-DEPSYS “This is a truly unique product which has taken several years to develop. We have been fortunate to partner with Volumatic part of Halma Plc a highly respected business who specialize in cash reconciliation and handling. With the combined expertise and knowledge we have developed a product which will revolutionise the Gaming Industry and re-define how cash is handled in the future”.
IDS completed a successful 4 month trial of I-DEPSYS with Stanley Casinos where the device was trialed in a live casino environment. The unit performed exceptionally well and delivered to Stanley Casinos the 5 principal benefits of integrating I-DEPSYS into their operation.
Elimination of physical count of cash, Speed up of game play, Elimination of potential shrinkage, Real time snap shot of Table Drop, Full Audit trail and reconciliation.
Andrew Beddoe said of the trial “We are thrilled to be working with Stanley Casinos and Genting on the development of the I-DEPSYS product. Stanley Casinos have been involved from the start and instrumental in defining the deliverables of the product. The trial was a great success and we learned a great deal from it which has enabled us to improve the product further. Stanley’s support, patience and encouragement of the trial and this project has been outstanding and we will be delivering further units to them in the coming months”.
I-DEPSYS will be launched at the forthcoming IC Exhibition and as the unit can be tailored to each gaming territory it will hopefully receive a great deal of interest from UK and International operators.
AB said “We are extremely excited to be launching I-DEPSYS at the forthcoming show as we will deliver a product to the industry which is completely new and innovative and the culmination of much hard work.
We are also working on a solution for electronic gaming which we hope to deliver mid next year that will boast the same benefits as the integrated table solution thus offering Casinos and gaming environments a comprehensive solution”.
