ith over 60,000 change machines in operation, VNE assisted to ICE Totally Gaming to show its novelties to the international market. Change machines are now more secure, safe and strong. And they are a way to reach out to customers. The VNE change machines can all be operated remotely. Thus, operators have clear, real-time information. Change machines naturally hold a large amount of money so need to be ahead of the game. That means that VNE offers a device to track all their change machines – even when the power is off – displaying on Google Maps the exact location of each individual change machine.
Although the ICE is an international exhibition, VNE took the opportunity to display its solutions for the local market. The ‘2P’ change machine is targeted to the family-centre entertainment (FEC) locations and seaside arcades where there are many games that cost 2 British pence. A capacity of 18,000 coins means that operators do not need to worry about running out of change. Should operators wish to offer the ability to change notes to coins and not just coins to coins, the ‘Maxi Changer’ includes a note validator.
The modularity of the VNE change machines means that operators can simple reprogramme the devices to pay out a different coin denomination – such as 10 British pence. Adding to all of this, the large integrated monitor and speakers allows the change machine to play music, show messages, advertising, etc. Operators simply connect the information they wish to display via USB, then it runs by itself.
Security - Simplicity – Service. This is the motto of VNE that combines industry-leading change machines with the highest level of service. Brand new to the ICE was the introduction of a biometric reader to the change machines. Thus, personnel no longer need an ID card to operate the change machine – this is all done by the individual fingerprint. “Simple and secure – and a fantastic service,” stressed sources of the firm.
The wide range of change machines for international markets was on display on the VNE stand. “Whether for simple changing, bill breaking, VLT solutions, retail and even cheque printing – VNE is the partner that can offer solutions tailored to customer requirements. Being family-owned and family-managed by the Verona family means that management can put requirements / wishes into reality in an extremely timely and professional manner,” assured the firm. Further examples of the VNE product range include: Viking, King Change, Token Change, Mega Change, Full Change, Hyper Change, Compact Change and Fifty Four.
