FID technology is used to connect slot machine asset numbers and bill validator operational information to a specific cashbox. Accessing data has never been faster, allowing operators to base decisions on several instant reports programmed within the accompanying software:
-Acceptance rate of what is in the cashbox.
-Currency report documents how many bills are in each Cashbox and the percentage of collected denominations over a period of time.
-Drop status manages the daily collection of the money and cashboxes.
-Jams reports, if they occur, identifying potential problems.
-Rejection types defines one of seven categories as to why the bill was rejected.
-Version report ensures each bill validator has up-to-date software.
The Easitrax Soft Count system has been designed to be easily retrofitted to the Cashflow SC bill validator. Building a comprehensive cash management solution is as simple as applying these basic components:
-Placing an antenna board to the Cashflow SC interface board.
-Applying RFID tags into the cashbox to allow information to be transmitted.
-Tying Easitrax reader bases (up to four) into a soft count room system that includes a USB hub and a computer.
-Installing software that creates a SQL database and loads available reports.
Easitrax-enabled bill validators and cashboxes can be ordered directly from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). MEI has also made all of these components available in retrofit package kits to simplify the ordering process.
The system has been configured to be compatible with sorter/counter equipment produced by Cummins, G&D, Glory and Toshiba – further illustrating the ease in which it can be incorporated into an existing operation. Easitrax can be implemented with minimal capital (using existing components reduces system costs) and with the hardware each operation has specified for its particular needs.
