he new relationship with Thomas not only provides TransAct with an immediate entry into the previously untapped European AWP low stakes gaming sector, but also introduces a pathway for the introduction of the revolutionary EpicentralTM tool recently rolled out in the US.
Tracy Chernay, Executive Vice President of Marketing & Sales for TransAct commented; “Thomas Automatics is building on a 40 year history in the UK AWP sector where they are respected for quality and reliability. Now they are adding innovation to their legacy. ThomasPay is the most innovative product offerings to be introduced to the AWP low stakes gaming sector in a generation. They selected the Epic 950 not only because of its reputation for quality and reliability, but also for the pathway it provides for introduction of the EpicentralTM Print System – the software system that prints promotional coupons and marketing messages at the point of play. EpicentralTM introduces an exciting new selection of promotional tools that will allow marketers of adult gaming centers to adapt player behavior to achieve much improved operational performance.”
Nick Veitch, Managing Director of Eurocoin, the parent company of Thomas Automatics, stated: “When we acquired the assets of Thomas Automatics, we knew we were acquiring a heritage UK brand with a stellar reputation for quality and performance. What we wanted to add was a culture of innovation…which we have done! The Thomas Automatics team has developed a truly innovative system to automate payment of cash winnings while significantly increasing cash security, operational efficiency, cash management, and customer experience. Along with all our technology partners, we are advancing the level of operational sophistication within the European AWP sector. And with the opportunity to move our customers into the EpicentralTM system, we will truly introduce dramatic innovation.”
The ThomasPay suite of automated transaction management includes AutoPay, TicketPay, and CardPay. Server-based applications for centralised PayStation control, comprehensive loyalty and management utilities are also incorporated as well as a built-in pathway to TITO operation and Epicentral promotional tools.
