We continue to invest in new technology and foster strategic partnerships with the goal of creating more convenient and sophisticated funding mechanisms to support the increasing complex needs of our customers. We are confident this proactive approach to development and partnerships will be very apparent at the show."
GCA will showcase the following products at G2E:
Everi™, an innovative payments and monetization solution that bridges the payments gap between land-based and online gaming, integrating with GCA's extensive network of kiosks and land-based operations. As part of the Everi offering, GCA provides the back office services to satisfy the financial and gaming regulatory requirements for gaming operators. The Everi product suite includes Everi Payments, a straight through payment wall, Everi Digital Wallet, a funds management system and payments solution and Everi Productivity Suite, a comprehensive set of tools for increasing revenue through player monetization and customizable offer engines. All products in the Everi suite provide modular feature implementation, which allows operators to choose from a wide range of customizable options.
Xchange® Kiosks, GCA's multi-functional suite of full service kiosks provide best-in-class cash handling technology, cash access, back office reporting tools and marketing services. Designed for casinos of all sizes, the Xchange product line provides comprehensive self-service solutions including, but not limited to, ATM, Credit and point-of-sale Debit financial services, bill break, ticket redemption, patron point and comp redemption, marketing services and check-cashing. With a combination of multiple TITO interfaces, high capacity components, and marketing peripherals, Xchange's fast and reliable cash access offers a multitude of options for both operators and patrons.
QuikTicket™, GCA's "Cashless Gaming" solution provides patrons the option of a TITO ticket or cash when completing cash access transactions at Xchange kiosks. Requiring no special cards or processes, QuikTicket uses current TITO technology that is trusted, intuitive and easy for players to understand. With GCA's patented 3-in-1 Rollover technology, QuikTicket integrates with the cashless floor and improves the patrons experience by providing higher limits and eliminating wait times at the cage. Combined with the CXC 4.0 kiosks, QuikTicket reduces handling costs and facilitates the velocity of gaming for our casinos operators.
TableXchange® is an innovative device that integrates with the QuikTicket product, and available through a strategic alliance with FutureLogic. This product is designed to enable table game players a convenient buy-in with a TITO ticket and cash out with a TITO ticket, which is redeemable at an Xchange kiosk for cash. By connecting table games to a casino's existing TITO network, TableXchange allows for scanning and printing of TITO vouchers. This creates a common currency across the casino that promotes crossover play between slots and tables. Like QuikTicket, TableXchange further streamlines casino operations by virtually eliminating the need to replenish chips at table games, which improves the patrons' experience by eliminating game downtime. TableXchange removes the risk of counterfeiting at the table game or cashier cage and reduces operating expenses by minimizing cash handling, along with fills and credits at the table game.
TransCard Prepaid and Loyalty Channel Partnership, GCA is excited to announce a channel partnership with TransCard which will enable prepaid programs to be associated with various casino loyalty programs. This relationship will offer creative loyalty redemption products that can be used with either a gift or a reloadable prepaid card exclusively at the Casino property or in an open loop environment. This card product will interface with GCA's suite of cash access services including the industry leading full service Xchange kiosks. TransCard and GCA plan to distribute, activate and dispense gift & loyalty cards through an innovative new self-service kiosk.
Xchange Explorer Plus® delivers real-time, web-based event reporting for both financial and gaming transactions, including QuikTicket and TableXchange. This back-office solution allows operators to view critical operational metrics via robust reporting tools all on a single vertically integrated user interface.
Cash Club®, the next evolution of QCPXpress, streamlines the processing of PIN Debit Cash Advance, Credit Card Cash Advance, Check Warranty and Check Verifications services – and now Central Credit – all from a single dashboard interface. This sleek new interface is faster and more intuitive, allowing for greater customization, more detailed reporting and improved in-house management.
Central Credit®, the only credit bureau exclusively focused on gaming patrons will also reveal a fresh new interface with a user-friendly intuitive dashboard. The new interface is tightly integrated with GCA's cash access solutions including Cash Club.
Casino Direct Plus®, GCA's new international point-of-sale payment platform delivers a dynamic user interface for both the patron and casino employee. With kiosk and cashier interfaces, Casino Direct Plus supports local and international credit and debit networks, signature capture, PIN, EMV, NFC and dynamic currency conversion. Additionally, Casino Direct Plus provides robust reporting tools, allows for property customization, supports multiple languages and offers numerous marketing capabilities.
