Intercard heads to Philippine Attractions and Amusement Expo
Visitors to this year’s Philippine Attractions and Amusement Expo in Manila will be able to check out the latest innovations in cashless technology at Intercard’s booth (#A331-2).
The company develops all of its hardware and software in-house and has development teams in Manila and in St. Louis, Missouri. At the show, Intercard will demo its enhanced Edge Mobile App Collection, the amusement industry’s first collection of mobile management tools. “The mobile future is here,” says Jerry Heinz, Asia Pacific sales manager. “And The Edge lets operators make the most of it.”
The Edge Mobile App Collection builds on iService, the industry’s first mobile management app, which Intercard introduced in 2017. iService makes it simple to track and manage every arcade game at one or more locations. Users can remotely put a game out of service for maintenance and technicians can use it to track repair information and when the game was placed back into service. All information is automatically updated on the server and in the cloud.
With the addition of two new apps, the Edge Mobile App Collection helps Intercard customers do even more with mobile technology. Intercard Upshot is a card management app that FEC proprietors can provide to their customers under their own brand. The app allows the customer to easily add value to multiple game cards directly from their mobile device. This means there is no need to interrupt the game action to go to a kiosk, and users can even recharge cards before arriving at the centre.
The Inventory app assists staff in maintaining their merchandise and redemption inventory by providing easy access to inventory logs and the ability to adjust inventory. All of this can be done from an Android or iOS mobile device, reducing the labour and equipment cost of inventory management and eliminating mistakes.
