MEI at AVEX 2011
Reading, 20th June 2011
MEI used this year’s AVEX to present its new cashless and audit solutions to the to the UK vending market.
Visitors’ interest was divided between new MEI audit solutions and the new MIFARE based cashless suite CashFlow® mei-pay.
A large number of visitors showed interest in the simple yet effective audit solutions from MEI: CashFlow® 8000 coin manager and CashFlow® VAM (Vending Audit Module). Both products are equipped with a set of features that make the complexity of data collection and manual reconciliation thing off the past. Equipped with Data Merge™ technology CF8000 or VAM pull all available audit data into a single EVA/DTS formatted file for a stress free data collection. A USB port provides the cheapest audit collection tool and Bluetooth capability allows contactless audit collection providing a future proof solution.
Richard Gibson, MEI’s European Marketing Director said: “By talking to operators across Europe we identified a growing demand for consistent and reliable audit collection process without the need to invest into proprietary hardware.” By using CF8000 on new installations and VAM on the existing coin mechanisms that deliver EVA/DTS data one can achieve a consistent audit process across an entire fieldbase. Furthermore USB and Bluetooth offer an open standard solution.
Enhanced cash security and shrinkage control features were equally well received. Built-in real time clock allows CF8000 and VAM time and date stamp any losses, which are then reported in EVA/DTS.
CashFlow® 8500 also attracted many of the visitors: a variant of CF8000, which includes an integrated MIFARE cashless reader offering the most cost effective cash & cashless solution in one product. CF8500 is part of the new cashless range from MEI that offers absolute flexibility of application easily adapting to the requirements of individual sites.
This new suite of solutions was first launched in Europe at the beginning of 2010 under the Complete Payment Solution™ banner. Since then it has enjoyed increasing success and kept delivering our promise to the market: Make More Money with MEI.
John Greasley, MEI Sales Manager, commented: “We are very pleased to meet old and new customers at AVEX. The show is a great platform to showcase new product range, which offers outstanding value and gives vending operators the tools they need to help them to run efficient and profitable business.”
