City Center (Aria), Boot Hill Casino and Parx Casino opened its doors with MEI CASHFLOW SC and EASITRAX Soft Count
West Chester, January 25, 2010 — MEI parlayed its CASHFLOW® SC and EASITRAX® Soft Count products into three winners the week of December 14, 2009. City Center (Aria) in Las Vegas, NV; Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City, KS; and Parx Casino in Bensalem, PA all specified MEI products to leverage cash handling efficiencies from the slot machine floor to the soft count room.
Casinos across America continue to specify CASHFLOW SC for their openings and replacement slot machines. Eric Fisher, MEI vice president—Americas, comments on MEI’s growing footprint, “MEI is proud that we earned 90% of games shipped in the United States for new casinos and expansions in 2009. We were happy to welcome City Center, Boot Hill and Parx to the list of casinos that opened with CASHFLOW SC and EASITRAX Soft Count last year.
“Installing CASHFLOW SC allows our customers to achieve the best acceptance rates and security. The addition of EASITRAX Soft Count provides operators with data to optimize machine placement, advance troubleshooting, make drop schedules more efficient and eliminate unnecessary jurisdictional fines.”
The EASITRAX Soft Count system uses RFID technology to connect slot machine asset numbers and bill validator operational information to a specific cashbox. Accessing data has never been faster – allowing operators to base decisions on several instant reports programmed within the accompanying software:
• Acceptance rate of what is in the cashbox
• Currency report documents how many bills are in each Cashbox and the percentage of collected denominations over a period of time
• Drop status manages the daily collection of the money and cashboxes
• Jams reports, if they occur, identifying potential problems
• Rejection types defines one of seven categories as to why the bill was rejected
• Version report ensures each bill validator has up-to-date software.
MEI is committed to providing its customers with the best products in the industry that will increase the operator’s profitability. “We believe the key to our success is through the success of our customers,” said Fisher. “Our customers can be confident in their investment in MEI products, as we focus on the core areas that result in profitability—acceptance, security, jam rate and cost of ownership—when developing our products.”
