Reading, UK, December 13, 2012 — MEI is proud to return to the ICE Total Gaming Show this year with Gaming’s most comprehensive cash management solution – the combination of SC Advance and EASITRAX Soft Count. By networking the slot floor to the soft count room, these award-winning products raise the bar for value and performance expectations while maximising operator profitability.

SC Advance evolved from the winning CASHFLOW SC note acceptor, applying new technology and market knowledge to make a great product even better. It features enhanced recognition technology, faster note-to-note speed, improved barcode recognition and the increased capacity to accept up to 100 different currencies and denominations. SC Advance also has the industry’s best acceptance rate for valid street-grade notes, including those that are wet, crinkled or torn.

More MEI customers are now also implementing EASITRAX Soft Count, a product extension that expands the reach of note acceptors from the slot floor into the soft count room. The addition of EASITRAX to SC Advance or CASHFLOW SC creates a comprehensive software/hardware system designed to streamline the cash management process. Since it was introduced in 2008, EASITRAX Soft Count has been installed in over 90,000 games worldwide.

Operators typically receive a return on investment in less than one year by reducing 20-30 seconds per cash drop and improving maintenance practices through access to eight pre-programmed reports. An interactive Savings Calculator on the new EASITRAX website ( provides a valuable tool to estimate how much money can be saved by implementing the Soft Count cash management solution.
