US -JCM partners with eConnect to bring facial recognition to casinosBy Phil - 14 October 2019
JCM has partnered with eConnect to further increase casino security and enhance surveillance and audit capabilities through real-time AML (Anti-Money Laundering) and SAR (Suspicious Activity Reporting) alerts.
JCM will demonstrate how FUZION is now integrated with eConnect’s facial recognition system to provide more visibility into suspicious cash and TITO transactions across the casino floor at this week’s G2E. JCM’s FUZION peripheral management system captures images and keeps transaction records of each note and TITO ticket, front and back. FUZION and eConnect communicate in real-time to track and match each transaction to the individual patron through iVIZION CIS imaging, casino surveillance, and facial recognition.
“FUZION is a game-changing technology that continues to deliver unique innovations benefiting JCM’s casino partners. This latest integration with eConnect further demonstrates that FUZION provides casinos with a level of technology and security enhancement that no one else can offer,” said David Kubajak, SVP of Sales, Marketing & Operations at JCM Global. “The FUZION secure public API’s allow authorised third-party systems, like eConnect, to access unique, real-time transaction data that only FUZION can provide.”
Whether the patron is carded or uncarded, eConnect can associate a patron to each transaction with facial recognition. The end-result of this partnership means higher levels of security, patron identification, and AML/SAR capabilities to casino operations.
“FUZION’s unique capabilities integrated to eConnect’s best in class facial recognition solution has completely changed the way casino operators can identify, review and reduce money laundering,” added Jason Cribbs, VP of Sales for eConnect. “Suspicious activities are easily discovered by connecting the patron’s face with the alerts from FUZION and ticket redemptions at TRU’s on the casino floor or at the cage.”
