Sacoa has chosen this week’s Bowl Expo (June 26-28 in Las Vegas NV) to unveil their latest debit card system online sales module as well as to let the bowling industry know that Sacoa integrates with all of the bowling management systems.
As reported in InterGame, “Sacoa, with over 1800 installations across the globe, is a specialist in cashless play for family entertainment centers. The company will demonstrate its online sales module so that guests can recharge their playcards online and illustrate the company’s ability to provide interfaces for simple plug-in integration with bowling management systems.”
“Sacoa offers interfaces for easy, plug-in integration with major bowling management systems. With the [latest] Switch Bowling terminal integration, credits can be stored in a playcard with balance-checking available at any time and an ability to accept any form of payment for recharging.”
The other majors that Sacoa integrates with are Brunswick’s Vector Plus Center Network System, QubicaAMF’s Conqueror Pro, and U.S. Bowling’s Pulse System.
Check out Sacoa’s new system features at Booth 808 and take the opportunity to meet Rick White, Sacoa’s new North American Sales Manager. Many of you already know Rick. He is the guy that has been cooking and feeding us at all of the major trade shows over the past 20 years, most recently with Quik ‘n Crispy and previously with Perky’s Pizza.
What this could mean? Bowling is reinventing itself and Bowl Expo is the place to be this week here in hot and sunny Las Vegas. The industry is adding new technologies to incorporate new ways to bowl (HyperBowling for example), animations, flashing colors, sound, improved and simplified pinsetters, and the list goes on and on. Sacoa has also completed the move to integrate with all of the bowling management systems. All of this is a win-win for our industry and for our customers. It is evident to me that bowling will continue to be a top attraction for the out-of-home (OOH) leisure entertainment industry for the rest of my life and beyond. Yes, bowling is ‘hot’ and ‘sunny’, just like Las Vegas!
