Game Token Machine Integration Now Implemented

Update 8-17-2017

We have been successfully testing this for a Pizza Location for over 1 week now with minor changes.

We are now live. If you are interested please contact Help Desk. This is an excellent way to not only control theft of tokens, but also merge reporting into your POS automatically.

———————–

We have completed integration of the POS with the Game Token issuing machines made by American Changer (http://www.americanchanger.com)

Beta testing of this integration will commence this week and we hope to offer for all interested parties by August 1st.

The POS interfaces with the token machine.via a serial connector (comes with the machine according to the vendor). You use the existing TOKEN button (if activated) and if turned on, the POS will now request the Token machine to dispense the paid for/authorized tokens.

This will enable your customers purchasing Game Tokens to pay with any payment method as well as purchase Tokens with their meal resulting in likely upselling and opening the door for Token promotions based on purchase  if you so choose.

    Courtesy of strategic partner David Abraham with CICI’s Pizza. These are the instructions to use a Token Machine with your POS.

    “Here are the instructions to implement a token dispenser that is controlled through the POS. This will eliminate shrinkage on tokens.

    1) Order an AC250 token dispenser and be sure to ask for the serial interface option ($107 upgrade). Betson Distributing, Britannie Betti, (201) 819-1982, bbetti@betson.com.
    2) You will need an interface cable to attach it to the POS ($7). https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A6GIV9K/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    3) The RJ45 to DB9 Serial adapter was shipped with your POS. Can be ordered from Datapoint if it is missing.
    4) If you need it to function from more than one POS terminal, you will need some addition software installed ($140). http://www.advancedvirtualcomport.com/
