SC Advance and EASITRAX steal the show in Balkan expo
The Balkan Entertainment and Gaming Exhibition (BEGE) that took place on 22 and 23 November in Sofia, Bulgaria, reached out to the entire Balkan region. CPI exhibited in Sofia once again and came to BEGE with a clear focus on the SC Advance banknote validator and EASITRAX cashbox solution. Many visitors took this opportunity to learn more about the most recent CPI innovations and resulting benefits.
“BEGE is one of the major highlights in our annual show calendar”, explains CPI regional sales manager Alan Humble, who is responsible for the Bulgarian market. “It is the most important Gaming show in Eastern Europe, and most of the big industry players attend. Naturally, we came here to support our customers, who were very keen to find out more on the SC Advance and EASITRAX.”
SC Advance is the next generation banknote validator from CPI, with major enhancements up and above its predecessor, the CASHFLOW SC. It features increased memory capacity, faster acceptance speed and improved 4-way ticket validation – all of which leads to improved security, higher performance and happier players.
Humble explains that upgrading to the SC Advance from the older SC is a quick and easy process. “While developing SC Advance, we focused on securing our customers’ previous investments,” he said. “That explains why only the acceptor head needs to be replaced – the rest of the unit, including the cashbox and chassis, remains intact for continued use. This simple swap of only the head brings considerable cost and time saving to operators.”
One of CPI’s most recent, and continually evolving, product developments – EASITRAX – was also centre stage for visitors to the company’s stand. Better performance, tighter security, streamlined maintenance and, ultimately, a better understanding of how the casino floor can be optimized all become a reality after implementing EASITRAX. This powerful cashbox system creates a comprehensive software/hardware cash management system designed to improve operational efficiencies from the slot floor to the soft count room. Not only does it provide a clear picture of individual cashbox contents, but it also allows insight into the performance of each SC Advance banknote validator. Slot managers use this information to optimize performance across the casino floor while technicians can get even more proactive by using it to improve their maintenance practices.
As a complete payment solutions company, CPI took the chance to exhibit its coin technology as well, including an array of coin validators and hoppers. “We are a complete provider offering added value for each product group. On behalf of the whole CPI team, I’d like to thank everyone who came to see us. This was a great show to be at,” concluded Humble.
