GT developed a stringent list of criteria a company must meet to gain designation as a Strategic Technology Partner. The prospective company must: Deliver strong value, create innovative technology, give strong customer support, maintain consistent product performance, demonstrate willingness and ability to enter into a cooperative development partnership and have a well-defined corporate strategy.
IGT Director Supply Chain Management Rick Lloyd said, “JCM and IGT have had a very productive and beneficial relationship since we first brought the embedded bill validator to the gaming industry in the early 1990s. Now we are thrilled to have JCM be the first company to meet all of our requirements to become a Strategic Technology Partner, and we are very excited for the future we will be building together.”
"For 20 years, we have been working closely with IGT to integrate, innovate and improve automated transactions between the player and the operator on IGT gaming equipment. When together we first revealed the embedded bill validator, we changed gaming forever. Now we are looking forward to working hand-in-hand, creating new technologies that will leave lasting marks on the global gaming industry,” said JCM President Akiyoshi Isoi.
Earlier this month, IGT designated JCM Global’s incredible new iVIZION bill validator as the “global default component” for all new IGT gaming devices manufactured by The distinction means that IGT will place iVIZION into all new sales where applicable or permissible, plus into all IGT participation games.
