US – Hialeah Park opts for MEIBy Phil - 3 July 2013
The Hialeah Park Casino has specified all 882 slots with both SC Advance and EasiTrax Soft Count from MEI. Opening a new operation with an efficient, proven cash management process was vital to management’s decision.
Steve Calabro, Hialeah Park Casino Vice President and General Manager of Casino Operations, said: “We are very confident that MEI is the right partner for us and will assist us in our number one goal of providing a great customer experience on the casino floor as it relates to the note acceptors. The consultative approach – combined with an impressive resume – gave us the confidence to not only specify MEI, but use its products as core elements to implementing a comprehensive cash management system. Additionally, Labor savings from a streamlined drop process and customisable reports driving proactive maintenance practices will help us be efficient from day one. Knowing MEI’s experience, and its commitment to the profitability of its customers, offers tremendous confidence.”
SC Advance has evolved from the industry-proven CashFlow SC note acceptor, applying new technology and market knowledge to make a great product even better. It features enhanced recognition technology, faster note-to-note speed, improved barcode recognition and capacity to accept more than 100 different currencies and denominations. SC Advance also has the industry’s best acceptance rate for valid street-grade notes, including those that are wet, crinkled or torn.
The ability to enhance SC Advance with EasiTrax Soft Count, which is now installed in over 100,000 games worldwide, has evolved MEI’s role as a components supplier to a cash management partner. EasiTrax is an integrated software/hardware system that boosts casino profits by streamlining the overall cash management process.
Eric Fisher, MEI Senior Vice President of the Americas, said: “We are thrilled with Hialeah Park Casino’s decision to open exclusively with MEI products,” said. “The partnership was kindled by the property’s desire to implement industry-leading technology into a thorough approach to cash management. EasiTrax Soft Count simplifies the drop process, yields immediate labor savings and creates newfound access performance data. The combination with SC Advance helps our customers achieve their goals – right down to the bottom line.”
