Investing locally in South Africa has yielded strong results for JCM Global, where its bill validator solutions have made gains in both the gaming and vending industries across the country.
The investment in South Africa began with JCM hiring local representatives and signing new distribution agreements with GPT (Global Payment Technologies PTY Ltd).
In the gaming industry, JCM’s award-winning iVIZION has been selected for use in casino and in limited payout machine (LPM) environments. Peermont Global, Sun International, and Tsogo Sun are all now using JCM’s iVIZION at their properties, as is the country’s largest LPM operator, Vukani Gaming (VSLots).
Installations of iVIZION began Oct. 2014 and marked the first time the bill validator was in use in South Africa.
“We are very pleased with the success our operator partners are having with iVIZION. They are reporting back to us that they are experiencing better acceptance rates with iVIZION than current industry standards,” JCM EMEA General Manager Payam Zadeh said. “Better performance is a common theme with operators who use iVIZION, and with a 99 percent acceptance rate, coupled with the industry’s strongest anti-counterfeiting and anti-stringing technology, it is easy to see why.”
