Intercard will return to Dubai for the 25th annual DEAL Show on March 25-27, 2019. At DEAL Intercard will feature its enhanced Edge Mobile App Collection, the amusement industry’s first collection of mobile management tools. “The mobile future is here,” says Scott Sherrod, CEO of Intercard, “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 go to the center to recharge cards or interrupt the game action to go to a kiosk to do so.
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 labor cost of inventory management and eliminating mistakes.
“Intercard has been leading the way with cashless technology in the Middle East since Encounter Zone, the first FEC in the region, opened in Wafi Mall in Dubai more than 20 years ago,” says Alberto Borrero, Intercard senior vice-president of international sales. “Encounter Zone featured the region’s first debit card system, and Intercard’s continued innovations and renowned customer service have made its technology the most-used in the market.”
The Intercard team, including CEO Scott Sherrod and Alberto Borrero, senior vice-president of international sales, will be at booth D73 in Hall 4 in the Dubai World Trade Centre.
