CPI launches banknote recycler SCR Advance at ICE

CPI launches banknote recycler SCR Advance at ICE

This year’s ICE show was the ideal setting for the CPI team to launch their most recent innovation – the SCR Advance note recycler. 

SCR Advance was specifically designed for non-TITO environments like the German AWP market, where paying jackpots in coins frequently resulted in hopper starvation.  It evolved from the original SCR note recycler and builds upon a legacy of great acceptance, unparalleled security and the fastest transaction speeds on the market – all features that play a vital role in machine uptime and the player experience.  What makes SCR Advance different, though, is the new technology it leverages to combat note jams, an issue that can put machines out of service and frustrate players just as frequently as hopper starvation.  SCR Advance, in fact, offers the lowest jam rate ever seen in a note recycling product.

“Continuous improvement is at the heart of our business,” said Anette Jauch, CPI sales director – EMEA Gaming.  “We applied new technology, new research and new customer feedback in order to bring SCR Advance to market, and we are thrilled at the reaction we received for it at ICE.  We are confident that SCR Advance will make a real, tangible difference for operators and players alike.  No other note recycler can beat it.”

CPI always looks for ways to deliver more value to its customers.  This was evident in the other products the company showed at ICE – including EASITRAX.  This integrated software/hardware solution provides operators with a complete view into how their SC note acceptors are performing in their machines – allowing them to better manage their cash on the floor all the way to the back room.  EASITRAX is installed in more than 200,000 games globally and continues to gain traction in EMEA, where EASITRAX is about to be installed in several thousand slot machines across multiple casinos.  It is also being rolled out in considerable numbers to VLT operations within the region.  

“We send our thanks to everyone who came to see us at ICE”, said Ms. Jauch. “The hallmark of our business is to bring more value to our customers in everything we do. The SCR Advance created a great buzz with our visitors and the prospects for EASITRAX are excellent in Europe to build upon the massive success it is enjoying in America and Macao.”
