ow are you preparing for the new edition of Peru Gaming Show (PGS), that will take place this week? What opportunities does this event represent for the company?
JCM will be present in Peru after several years of absence. This show is a great opportunity to present some novelties regarding our local structure and to present new products as well.
Will you have your own booth or will you just exhibit at the stand of its distributor Hanco?
We will be present at Hanco Technologies booth with our products. People from Hanco Technologies and Gamadel will accompany us.
Which are the main characteristics of the products you will offer the Peruvian market?
Although we will be presenting some already well-known produc such as UBA, we will also present the Vega unit for the kiosk and vending area, and JCM star product, the globally well-known iVizion. It is a unit with a totally renewed validation technology (CIS) and with the scanning of the 100% of the ticket and 800,000 points of contact, it is well beyond the competence. It has a central-count optical-scan system for the ticket and calibrates it automatically. The tickets are totally sealed to dust and water an have an easy maintenance. It has two processing cards that make it the fastest product in the market and its design is 100% compatible with UBA. We invite everyone to visit Hanco booth and get to know iVizion.
Beyond the products you will present, Will you announce any novelty? Have you signed any strategical alliance?
Yes, we have been working for a long time to strengthen our local structure. Gamadel, our local distributor, and Hanco Technologies have formed an Alliance to bring a better service and more commercial capacity. We are very satisfied with this, because it will let us have a quicker and more effective response to the Peruvian customer.
Which are the main features of the Peruvian market? How has it evolved?
In the last two years, most of the operators have focused on online gaming, with all it involves regarding analysis, tests and money expenditure. We believe that now that we are leaving that behind, the market will focus on improving the performance of the machines, and there is where JCM complies its best part. We think that the process would have been made conversely, but it has been held this way. We see the Peruvian market in a genuine evolution process, seeking to optimize resources through quality products.
Which are your main goals for the current year?
Goals for this year in Peru are to consolidate our local structure, make it grown and position iVizion as the market leader. We think it has technical reasons for that, and the proof of this is given by the huge global demand of our iVizion, exceeding our best expectations. Since the WBA launch, the gaming market has not received such an impact in the area of bill validation and ways of payment.
